Overall we enjoyed our experience here. We came on a Saturday night at about 8pm and it was packed, which we expected. The cocktails were very interesting spins on other well-known cocktails, and some very original ones. Lots of flavor! The dim sum was delicious too! My only complaint is that after one round of drinks and when we were done eating our dim su we seemed to be in a corner that didn't get much attention from the servers so there was a point where my husband had to go up and ask someone to come to our table to order another round and getting refills of water was a challenge. Other than that, it was a cool experience!GOOGLE REVIEW

A brilliant cozy bar in the centre of China Town. The excessive coziness would normally bother me but Opium pulls it off very well. The place has a vibe of a victorian East London opium den (not a big surprise considering the name of the bar). Cocktails are bold in taste (complex, non trivial combinations and strong taste) but lack a bit in the execution. Surely not stunt cocktails, but still very interesting in a good way. Staff is fantastic, very friendly and attentive. I took away one star as it was very hot in there (Peony room) and me and my wire we had to cut out date short as it was too warm. Nonetheless, place worth visiting either on your way to night out in Soho or as a nice finishing touch after dinner in one of the many restaurants around.GOOGLE REVIEW

Had a few drinks before going out for dinner. A very unique and interesting venue. I will recommend the cocktail called "The Wise One"GOOGLE REVIEW

Amazing experience. Unique cocktail bar.... Look out for the Turquoise door!! Impeccable service and nice selection of unique, tasty cocktails. Very much worth the price tag. The dim sum was so tasty... I could have kept eating it all night!GOOGLE REVIEW

Cool but pricey. The entrance can be a bit hard to find. It’s next to Lotus Garden restaurant. Went to the top bar - Academy. Staff were very friendly. The cocktails were cool. Clearly Opium #8 is the one to get - it has dry ice - very cool. But be aware that with service charge, it’s a £15 cocktail. Cool decor.GOOGLE REVIEW
