Me and the wife dined at this rather wonderful Chinese restaurant in Glasgow. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The interior décor of the restaurant is quite nice. After dining here we found the quality of the food served to be of a good standard. We had starters and they were rather delicious. I enjoyed my chicken... More

A friend joined us to eat here. We visited on Monday just at opening time. Alot of people were already coming in. It was a good job we were early. Instead of ordering starters and mains, we decided to order from the dim sum range and try each others. The service was brilliant, the food on time and piping hot.... More

Went to this lovely little restaurant for my birthday and have to admit the food was out of this world! We went for a selection duck pancake rolls, soft shell crab, wartip dumplings and the beef clay pot with sides of noodles and pak choi, this sounds a lot for 2 people but it wasn't that bad and when we...

Our third visit here and it hasn't disappointed once. Really good value modern Chinese/pan-Asian food. The salt and pepper calamari was just right, the duck with holly basil perfect and the kung po chicken really tasty but a tad overcooked. Fast and friendly and really clean as well. Wine list OK, staff very helpful too .

I came out feeling very very satisfied with the food. Everyone in my party was extremely satisfied, along with a vegan member who was catered for superbly. The staff were very attentive but not intrusive. Brilliant atmosphere also. Definitely one of the better Asian restaurants in the city centre of Glasgow.

Loved this place. Easily one of the nicest Asian style meals I have had. The starters were so good one of my friends decided to have another one for desert. For main I opted for Thai Chilli Beef with soft noodles, outstanding. Definitely going back soon, just to try more of the menu.

It has been years since I have been able to eat a Chinese meal with confidence. The knowledge of ingredients and adaptations to the menu meant I could eat with confidence and no ill effects. Also amazing cocktails.

I'm used to very down-to-earth dim sum restaurant, so Opium was a surprise. Extremely elegant, nothing bad with it, but it somehow "ruined" the experience! eheheh The food! The menu is limited but dim sum were good... I had saffron and salmon ones, duck rolls, and the dumplings with the strange flowers in them (can't catch the name anymore), and... More
