My boyfriend booked this restaurant for my birthday. To be honest it didn't look much from the outside but the atmosphere, the service and the food was awesome. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Dishes I would recommend is the Pi-Pa chicken and the Thai chilli beef, absolutely delicious. This restaurant is a hidden jewel and I will return next...

Great food, good prices, friendly staff, reasonably easy to park nearby (on road or car park). I always eat here when visitng Glasgow, and once you have experienced their specials menu you will understand why.

We went to Opium after it was recommended to me by a colleague from Shanghai. We were not disappointed. Opium is easily the best oriental restaurant we have been to. The food was simply delicious and the staff very friendly. The portions were just right as opposed to too big elsewhere. We will be back as we intend to try... More
