Unfortunately if you serve up hot dishes cold, it really really detracts from the taste, flavor, experience. To me its a complete faux pas for kitchen to operate this. So yes what can I say, if you like cold food (and its not that simple to send food back to re-heat, it comes back after your partners have finished there's.

We were served very well by a young lady, must mention we were the only table and yet the kitchen managed to serve us uncooked prawns. Tom kha gai tasted so bland and lukewarm. We asked the manager in charge to ask the chef to try the soup and the response was far from acceptable, " he has tasted it... More

We were handed the bill without asking for it at 9.45pm and told to leave within 15 minutes as the restaurant was closing. What happened to hospitality? Overpriced tapas, the mains were better (the massaman curry was to die for) but the experience soured at the end by being asked to leave

A late booking for a restaurant we had not heard about resulted in a great night. Ordered the taste journey and could not fault any of the dishes. The lamb chops were the best I have ever eaten. The interior is pleasant, tables are well spaced and you can hear your conversation. Fully recommend you visit.

We came here under recommendation from friends and advised to try the tasting menu. Firstly it was winter but it was colder inside than out. Good that we could bring BYO. Must say that we didn't think the food was that tasty nor authentic. Don't think we'd rush back.

Lovely food, scallops, shooters, prawns. Great, lively service. BYO drinks so no issue there. Toilets shocking. As good as the food is, the hygiene is nauseating. Couldn't possibly return.

Excellent traditional Thai dishes using great fresh produce. Interesting adaptions of Thai cooking to local produce and other cooking traditions. Unfortunately BYO.

1. Getting there The location is a bit tricky. tucked away in the basement, but it's been decorated fairly well. My workplace is only a block away and I didn't know that this restaurant exists here. It should be "Red Opium Den" 2. Food It's a tapas style Asian food place, and it's BYO, with $3 per person corkage charge... More

Looking for a Thai restaurant not far from our hotel and we had the great surprise to enter Red Opium! The place was well decorated and we were welcome with a great smile! The food choice was very interesting and what we choose was amazing! Service was very attentive! We might go back again before leaving Perth!

Thank Lancelot104
