Been here on a number of occasions. The food is always great. Never had a complaint. Owner is always interested in your thoughts on the food and the dishes are better than your usual Oriental fair. Highly recommended.

After reading the reviews on here I was expecting big things from Opium and it totally delivered. Staff were attentive, food was beautifully presented and delicious. Food really tasted authentically Thai. Even manage to force down a desert.
