Great food and service, only negative thing is the noise, the acoustics of the place is not great and you end up shouting to be able to be heard
I booked on Thursday to dine on Saturday so it was difficult to get a booking in a restaurant as it is now the Christmas season so I was delighted to get a table for two in Opium as I had eaten there before. However, we were seated in an area I wasn't familiar with 'The Botanical Garden' which seems to be an outdoor area in summer. When I booked online I wasn't given a choice of areas to book whereas other restaurants I have booked will give you an option if there are different areas to the restaurant. My friend and I were seated at the very back of the Botanical Garden' beside doors to outside. It was very draughty and other customers had their coats on. We had to ask to be moved but they had no seats so they said they would put the heater hanging from the ceiling on but it wouldn't work. We were eventually moved and the night improved!
Always great food, friendly staff and a full bar to choose from!
Thanks for the 5-star rating Alan. We really appreciate the kind words. Thank you for choosing us. From your words, it was not your first visit and we really appreciate the repeat business. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
I was so happy to bring my friends here after we had a lovely experience last time. It did not disappoint, the food was so fresh and delicious. The staff are fabulous, going above and beyond to make sure you enjoy everything. Highly recommend a visit here. We will be back again 😊
Hi, Thanks for the great review and especially for the repeat visit. We really do appreciate the loyalty and are delighted to read that your second experience was as good as the first. We look forward to you coming back many more times!
I would suggest to add the option to have spicy the pad thai and include more options of bites. Thanks
Hi Pablo, Thanks for your comments which I will discuss with our chef. We are always open to new ideas and this could be a new idea for the menu. We always aim to meet guest requirements so on a future visit please do feel free to mention to your server if you want extra spice (or less spice, or anything really!) modified on your dish. Thank you for the visit and we hope you come back soon
Lovely atmosphere, great food and service! Highly recommend! Definitely will be back again!

Hi TOH123, We can't ask for higher praise! Regular custom is the best type of feedback we can have and we really do appreciate people like you coming back time and again. We will always aim to deliver the best. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Price doesn’t no match the portion sizes, some cocktails were very small for them to be price the same as others. Service was superb, staff was super lovely and helpful. Food was delicious.
Hi LuanaU, Thanks for the visit and for sharing your comments with us, which we will definitely discuss as a team. I certainly note the comment about the cocktail pricing but assure you they are priced due to the cost of ingredients, usually alcohol, that is in each. Some of the larger drinks have more ice or juice or puree in them than others, but we do aim to offer a range of types of drinks. We will try and ensure our servers advise this each time as we certainly always want to offer value
Really enjoyed this place….great food, service and atmosphere.

Great restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding.
Hi John, Thanks for the kind words and for visiting us. Delighted to read that you enjoyed the food as well as how our team took care of you. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Lovely modern looking venue. Very noisy. Food was nice but portions were too big. Staff ask "was there a problem with the food?" when we couldn't finish the large portions which I personally find extremely annoying. Prices are what you would expect for city centre.
Hi Sher, Thanks for the visit and the feedback. I appreciate that you found this annoying and I apologise, but I assure you it was with good intentions and only with the aim of ensuring that you were happy with all. But we note all feedback and try to learn each time, so this will be no different.
Fab food and cocktails. They even surprised us with a dessert and a candle in it as we were there celebrating a birthday.
Hi, Thank you for choosing us for your special event. We have all gained an appreciation for these occasions over the past couple of years and are proud that you chose us to celebrate. We are delighted you enjoyed the food and cocktails and hope you come back for more in the future.
Consistently good. Love the food here it never disappoints.
HI Liane, Thanks for the lovely review. It shows that you are a regular visitor which of course is the best type of feedback we can hope for! We hope you return again soon.
The whole experience was amazing! We got spring rolls & prawn crackers to start and lemongrass chicken and claypot lamb as a main. Both were the nicest Thai dishes I've ever had! Cocktails were also amazing and the staff were even kind enough to bring out a birthday brownie for our celebration! Thank you so much!
hi Nicole, Thanks for your detailed and positive feedback. I'm delighted you enjoyed it and of course we are very proud of the food and cocktails that we serve and the team that creates it all! I'm glad you chose us to celebrate your birthday event and hopefully you will return for lots more occasions in the future.
