Hidden behind a secret door in Chinatown, Opium Cocktail & Dim Sum Parlour offers heady oriental delicacies. Head up to the attic room with its free-standing bar and enjoy theatrical displays from Opium’s cocktail masters.

An eclectic emporium featuring a maze of rooms clad in vintage, oriental-style pieces, Opium restaurant is set over 3 floors of an historic townhouse. In one of the seductive Opium lounges, enjoy delicately crafted dim sum parcels, including crab and samphire dumplings, Cantonese BBQ pork bun, or sesame & lobster prawn toast.

Served with a hint of speakeasy-cool, Chinese-inspired cocktail sorcery at Opium bar in London includes the ‘Hong Kong Island iced teapot’, or the cleansing ‘Asian Garden’. Compiled by one of the world’s most well-travelled tea connoisseurs, the luxury Opium infusions list ranges from golden mulberry, to heady white vanilla.

A late-night den for dining and drinks, Opium in Chinatown is a 5-minute walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    Great service, lovely atmosphere (though our table was far too dark) and though it was much more expensive than any other good dim sum options, the whole experience was worth it. Would definitely go back for cocktails and dim sum snack - but would not return hungry;-)

    Bear in mind this is an upmarket bar that serves dim sum and not a restaurant that serves nice cocktails. We thought it was the latter and was disappointed by how loud and stuffy the venue was. Thumping music (perhaps it wouldn't have been so bad if it was Asian music, but it was just general western tunes), crowded, noisy, and very stuffy.

    To be fair, the waiter did his best to accomodate us but, no matter how he tried, seating was of the bar-stool or low-coffe-table variety (no restaurant style table and chairs) and there was no escape from the music playing so loud you had to shout to be heard.

    If you want a few nice cocktails out in a lively bar environment then this is the place for you. If you want to sit down and enjoy dim sum with some nice cocktails, look elsewhere.

    An absolute joy. Different, dark, mysterious entrance, the winding staircases to the unknown, large spaces broken down to intimate nooks, GREAT DRINKS, yummy dim sum. Couldn't have asked for more for a more unique Chinatown experience. Particularly good for a late-night experience.

    Love the atmosphere and the food, drinks, service. Great place to start an evening. Could do with a bit more of a dim sum selection.

    Overall, pretty nice building, good central location, cocktails, while super slow were well made. I was looking for a more quiet speakeasy type of feel and this seemed to be more of a noisy/popular location, so good for groups!

    Cool location, fast service of drinks and dim sum, tasty cocktails and decent dumplings. Earthly heaven cocktail, scallop dumplings and mushroom and truffle dumplings were our favourites. Later on, it is loud with a great the atmosphere and service. Difficult to find!
