Awesome place with delicious food and amazing staff. Made a booking through Menupages and they had the details when I arrived. Everything was smooth, food came on time and jesus that Beef Rendang is to die for. Love this place!!

Had another fantastic meal on Saturday evening - delicious food, really tasty cocktails (recommend the Old Fashioned!), and a lovely atmosphere.

Wow.. Loved loved, loved this Restaurant.. Fantastic service.. just the right balance of friendliness and distance.. the tables are booth style round tables which I love as its so much more social. The cocktails are pricey but really nice and the foos is spectacular.. I'm vegetarian and what really impressed me was the waiter was able to reassure me that their veggie option for the Thai Green curry had no fish or shrimp paste or oyster sauce with out me having to even ask.. this is not the norm in Irish restaurants and was really appreciated.. My self and my friends had a wonderful experience and Id recommend it to any one, especially if your vegetarian. I'll be back..

I've heard wonderful things about Opium so I couldn't wait to eat there. It didn't disappoint. I had the ribs (fab) and shaking beef (the beef was deliciously soft) and my friend had the king prawn (which was one very large prawn, not what she was expecting) and the beef rendang which was really tasty. I will definately eat here again but it is a little on the pricey side so i'd probably go for the early bird the next time.
The zombie cocktail is worth a try too.

Christmas menu is in full swing here for December. Starters are set and appeared to be a platter of chinese starters from the supermarket-spring rolls, fish cakes, satay skewers. My main of shaking beef was not shaking, it was in a sweet sauce with bland rice and a salad dressed in so much lime it was inedible. Worst of all the music was so loud that nobody could talk. Ran out of the place as soon as we had eaten.

I had a pleasant evening at dinner in Opium however I was disappointed with the portion sizes of the starters - I felt that they were over-priced for the meagre amount of food server.

I have eaten here a few times and never been disappointed with the food or service. This time we went with two teenagers, one of which found her dish on the spicy side and without being asked the manager recognised this and got her a fresh meal of the same dish but just plain - can not fault his attentiveness and service or it turned out his taste in rum! Food wise the dishes are fresh and flavoursome and at an extremely affordable price. There are some reviews here complaining about the noise, while it is not the quietest place but it does all add the atmosphere and enjoyment - I would highly recommend.
