I went to Opium for dim sums and cocktails. Everything was great, the atmosphere is very intimate and also trendy, the staff was extremely friendly. Will definitely come back.

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.

    We had booked an early table and was welcomed by some very delightful staff.
    We had a lot of dim sum and they all tasted amazing. Service was great and bartenders was good recommending drinks or make up new ones in our taste.

    great dim sum and great place, the cocktails are not amazing though

  • ((((* 13 September 2017 by Jessica Steuart-hoyler from London

    Great selection of drinks. Area we sat in (private area behind curtains in a booth) was extremely dark. Although atmospheric, it was almost impossible to read the menu and there were only tiny lights in the middle of the table that gave off very minimal light, so had to use phone torches to read the menu. A bit more light, yet still dim would have helped this.

    This place is a little gem in Chinatown!! Tucked upstairs 3 floors behind a Jade door it could easily be overlooked. It has a dark, speakeasy style which adds to the atmosphere, but the best thing about this place is the food - IT IS THE BEST DIM SUM WE'VE EVER HAD!!! The cocktails are good and strong and the staff attentive without being pushy. Will not hesitate to go again when next in London.

    It pretends to be exclusive so that it can charge sky high prices for cocktails and dim-sum in a third floor garrett in Soho.

    Amazing dim sum and even better cocktails. The crab dumings and the char Sui buns were yummy and my favourite cocktail was the Umami martini which has truffle oil in it. Genius!
    Great, friendly and fast service.
