It is rather pricy but excellent food. I would not make it my regular dining spot due to the price but for now and then it’s great

Disappointing. Maybe because it was a Wednesday night but food was okay but nothing special. Server was pleasant but had an “I don’t care” attitude and never came to check on us our entire meal.

The service was great with helpful staff. The food was very tasty and up there with the best of Thai here in Dublin. I would definitely recommend it for a dinner out. The music was a little loud for dinner but besides that no complaints.

I would highly recommend Opium for a great night out. The food, atmosphere, decore and staff are all 5 star. We have never met nicer staff and nothing was a problem for them. So chilled and welcoming. If I was to suggest any changes it would be the wine menu... its a little Eddie Rockets! I would also like to see more interesting white wines that would compliment the exceptional food more as currently it lets it down a little. Cannot wait to go back though as we had an absolute ball! 👍🏻

We came here for Valentine's Day. They had a special V-Day menu. We really enjoyed it. My wife is a very picky eater, but fortunately they had her favorite dish (the Singapore noodles, with tofu) on the menu. I had the mixed seafood, which was excellent--I find that the taste of seafood can be drowned out by too much spice, but they did everything just right. And we also got cocktails and dessert with our meal, although we had to take the latter home with us. A perfect evening--we both strongly recommend this place!

We has a reservation at 7:30pm on a Wednesday and lucked out on the early bird prices, which were very reasonable for two or three courses. The noise level was fine probably because it was not full, I could imagine if full and on a night that the club is open it might be quite loud.

Excellent food, relatively slow service particularly with drinks and we struggled to get anyone to take our order for a second round of drinks. We would definitely come back and thought the food really was delicious and good value for the quality and quantity. Portion sizes were very large and would recommend sharing a starter between two.

Everything was outstanding from start to finish. I had the scallops and prawn dumplings to start and it was as if I was in a food hall in Asia eating their local cuisine! I had the salmon miso salad for main and it was delicious and nice and light. My friends had the gyoza & Vietnamese vegetarian roll for starters and mains was chicken green curry & an Asian salad of some sort which were all as equally excellent as my food. Will 100% go back. Staff are helpful and hospitable and the new fit out is done very tastefully. Can’t wait to go back

It is completely unnecessary to blast music at full volume in the restaurant. As loud as the music was, it didn't drown out the noise of the door to the toilets. Surely this could be easily addressed. This is a venue for parties or hen/stag nights.
