Found this restaurant at the last minute for a Christmas Eve lunch with the family. We were pleasantly surprised. Great fresh food, excellent cocktails and friendly service. Good value for money too.

A group of us went for an early bird dinner. The staff were super helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. A great selection and very good value for money. The place itself is beautiful and it wasn't crowded which was great. Would definitely recommend Opium and will definitely be returning ourselves!

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.

I was with a group of 7, the food was beautifully presented and there were no complaints from my colleagues who, based on my recommendation from 2 previous visits, had the beef rendang. The service and ambience were both really excellent.

Birthday dinner. A friend had a severe allergic reaction and the response from the restaurant was atrocious. Looking into going legal with the level of negligence experienced.

Our waiter did not bring our change which was quite signicant. As it was a friends birthday we did not want to draw attention to this. Was not impressed by the service.

My client said he wanted Thai food - I found Opium on Open Table and knew he’d be happy, and he was. Happened to be 5 mins walk from our hotel on the edge of St Stephens Green too, so extremely convenient.

We were showed to table and greeted very nicely by guy at front desk. Enjoyed the food which came very quickly. However after that we were left on our own. We had to find someone to ask for drinks and then again when we wanted the bill. If the service improved I'd recommend without hesitation.

Visited with my sister before a gig in Whelans. She hadn't been in Opium before but i had been twice previously. We both loved the food. Our booking was at 6pm so it was quiet but i have been there later on the previous occasions and there is a great buzz as the evening progresses. Would highly recommend.

Lovely decor and friendly staff. Food was good but it was a bit overpriced for what it is - classic Asian cuisine, which you can get in many other restaurants at lower prices. I guess the premium is due to the decor and ambiance. We arrived at 7pm on Saturday and initially it was fairly quiet and had a perfect dimly-lit atmosphere for a date night. Later on it filled up and became a bit too loud for our taste. 'Botanical garden' bar looks great but it was a bit too busy and warm for us (it was a warm August night).

Brunch menu wasn't on, despite having it on website. Not a single other person there at 2pm on a Saturday. No servers came to see if we wanted to order food so we just had coffee and left.
