I really enjoyed Opium, the food was great and service to much. I had set menu for lunch at £12.50. The food was freshly made, the chicken and lemongrass dumplings were crispy and delicious, the pork teriyaki was pretty good too. I will be back for more!

Went here with colleagues (5 of us) after seeing it did quite well in reviews on this site. It was really good ! I asked the waitress to choose the food for us, starter and main courses and everything they provided was excellent. Interestingly, there was absolutely no wasted food at all - just a little bit of rice left... More

Went Saturday 20th Jan. Staff friendly and attentive. Nice buzz about the place. Menu - straightforward - not too busy but difficult to make a choice - but then it means I can choose these next time. Cocktails went down well. Only wish there was something similar in Aberdeen/Dundee of this standard!

We dropped in here just because our hotel was close by and what a great find. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food excellent. The dumplings must be tried, we would happily have had a bucket of them. The portions were good with loads of prawns and scallops. We will deffinitely come back on our next visit to... More

Very good food. Fusion cooking doesn't always work but in this case it does. Great flavours with subtle spices. The homemade tofu is amazing; completely different texture from what is offered elsewhere. Good range of veggie options. The only slight fault was to give complimentary prawn crackers to us both even though one was clearly vegetarian and recognised as such... More

Not sure why this place got such great reviews - although the staff was really friendly the food was terrible. We got a bunch of dim sum dishes and a fish dish. All the meat in the dim sum plates smelled weird (like spoiled) so we definitely felt like we were taking a risk eating it (didn't get sick but... More

Didn't book a table but got in straight away. The dim sum/small eats were all fantastic. Probably worth getting 3 per person. Everything we ate was really top notch - I particularly enjoyed the soft shell crab. Service was good too so I don't feel too bad about accidentally leaving far too big a tip!

Super Asian fusion restaurant, good quality food and drinks with attentive staff. Good range of vegetarian options although a little more spice would have been welcome. Deep fried ice-cream was intriguing! Definitely would visit again.
