We ate here on 1st January. Gluten free menu had not many dim sum options but that did not surprise me. What I chose was lovely. The galangal and coconut soup and sticky rice and chicken in lotus leaf. The waiter brought soy sauce to the table and when I questioned if it was gluten free he said no but went to bring me gf soy sauce. He immediately came back to say they had run out...that meant my main course choice would be compromised. No worries...they made me something safe and that suited me perfectly. Always good to have to change a choice to be safe as someone with coeliac disease. Will go back. Ev

Visited Opium on New Years Day for my sons birthday and was pleased with the outcome. The restaurant is small and personal, nice decor and great location. Very friendly staff but restaurant cold, set the heating to come on earlier. The three of us were very happy with our food, I had a fantastic hot and sour soup then slow cooked pork belly which looked like it had been put together in a high class restaurant and tasted just as good. My wife's satay chicken was the best I have ever tried. One slight criticism is the portion size, I could have eaten more but then I am greedy. We will definitely visit again

Went for lunch with my daughter and great value! I was surprised that not many people were in the restaurant! This used to be Peking Inn which as a family,we frequently went to.and was always busy.When it changed Management, we always looked through the windows and were a little apprehensive as there weren't many people dining there. We have had dinner menu which is a little more expensive but the lunch menu is amazing value! Would definitely recommend.
