A cozy and stylish restaurant offering a good mix and match of oriental cuisine. The Thai Green Chicken Curry was very good with plenty of chicken! Very satisfying!

On our last night in Glasgow we had planned venturing to the West end of the city for dinner. However a miserable wet and windy day made us want to stay close to our hotel on Bath St. Opium came recommended so we made the short walk around to Hope Street. The menus (both drinks and food) were great –... More

Very good food and decent service too. Picked this purely from TripAdvisor rating and was good but a bit more pricey than expected....

My partner and I were visiting Glasgow for the first time, wandering along Hope Street looking for a place for dinner. Just looking in the window of Opium made us want to eat here, as it was so chic and sultry and seemed to have a really hip but laid-back crowd. So we went in for the atmosphere, but then... More

A very relaxed, informal yet sophisticated dining atmosphere greets you on arrival. Suitable for either an impromptu meal or a special occasion and very reasonably priced for what's on offer. Sleek modern surrounds that mirror the fusion style of cuisine. The restaurant itself is small though in demand. The waitresses were attentive though never intrusive. Had an excellent three course...

Went there with no reservation on a Saturday night and we were lucky to get a table. The place is very small and crowded. The food was really good and the service was excellent. The only downside is that it was so extremely loud in there that we could n´t even speak so we just hurried to eat our food... More
