Went there for a drink after dinner. The place is really nice with live music from a Gu Zheng solo. The ambience was really good and the waiters are really warm and friendly. The service is exceptional!

We found this place on tripadvisor and must confirm the positive feedback - I ordered a very tasty beef & quinoa main course ( see picture). Life music and cosy environment. Welcoming stuff, we particularly appreciated Roy for his kind manners. reccomended!

The staff is very cautious and friendly. The menu isn’t large, but focuses on quality. Specialty cocktails are spectacular.

Description
Introducing Opium KL! Established on 12th July 2014, this unique outlet focuses on Asian Oriental delights with a twist; such as Phoenix Dumpling, Fern Leaf Salad, Crispy Duck Noodles, Wagyu Beef Rendang, and the signature Beef Brisket & Tendon Stew just to name a few. Inspired by the Opium regimes of the east, the interior speaks for itself. Furnished with age-old artifacts such as an opium bed in the Rose Room, opium pipes and huge Chinese wine pots displayed vividly at the Communal area, the outlet aspires a 1930s-1960s look and feel. It's slogan, Eat Drink Man Woman takes a more subtle approach to distinguish Opium KL as the place for people to unwind and focus purely on the food, conversation and quality time.
