We came here for Valentine's Day. They had a special V-Day menu. We really enjoyed it. My wife is a very picky eater, but fortunately they had her favorite dish (the Singapore noodles, with tofu) on the menu. I had the mixed seafood, which was excellent--I find that the taste of seafood can be drowned out by too much spice, but they did everything just right. And we also got cocktails and dessert with our meal, although we had to take the latter home with us. A perfect evening--we both strongly recommend this place!

We has a reservation at 7:30pm on a Wednesday and lucked out on the early bird prices, which were very reasonable for two or three courses. The noise level was fine probably because it was not full, I could imagine if full and on a night that the club is open it might be quite loud.

Excellent food, relatively slow service particularly with drinks and we struggled to get anyone to take our order for a second round of drinks. We would definitely come back and thought the food really was delicious and good value for the quality and quantity. Portion sizes were very large and would recommend sharing a starter between two.

Everything was outstanding from start to finish. I had the scallops and prawn dumplings to start and it was as if I was in a food hall in Asia eating their local cuisine! I had the salmon miso salad for main and it was delicious and nice and light. My friends had the gyoza & Vietnamese vegetarian roll for starters and mains was chicken green curry & an Asian salad of some sort which were all as equally excellent as my food. Will 100% go back. Staff are helpful and hospitable and the new fit out is done very tastefully. Can’t wait to go back

A group of us went for an early bird dinner. The staff were super helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. A great selection and very good value for money. The place itself is beautiful and it wasn't crowded which was great. Would definitely recommend Opium and will definitely be returning ourselves!

It is completely unnecessary to blast music at full volume in the restaurant. As loud as the music was, it didn't drown out the noise of the door to the toilets. Surely this could be easily addressed. This is a venue for parties or hen/stag nights.

I was with a group of 7, the food was beautifully presented and there were no complaints from my colleagues who, based on my recommendation from 2 previous visits, had the beef rendang. The service and ambience were both really excellent.

We were showed to table and greeted very nicely by guy at front desk. Enjoyed the food which came very quickly. However after that we were left on our own. We had to find someone to ask for drinks and then again when we wanted the bill. If the service improved I'd recommend without hesitation.

Visited with my sister before a gig in Whelans. She hadn't been in Opium before but i had been twice previously. We both loved the food. Our booking was at 6pm so it was quiet but i have been there later on the previous occasions and there is a great buzz as the evening progresses. Would highly recommend.
