Visited Opium KL again after MCO 2.0. Food standard and quality has dropped. Lots of mosquitos after rain. Overall, uncomfortable and not the similar expectations as before.

Jonathan has the best customer service I've ever seen amongst all the bar and restaurants I've been to. He knows the menu very well, the best and hot seller, drinks of the month, and he knows exactly which drinks suit our taste after listening to...our preference. Plus, he was super friendly and with a great smile. As for the place, it has a really traditional Chinese vintage vibe with the interior design. Great ambience. The food is really delicious and has large portion. Price is reasonable. Will definitely come again with friends.More

We need our phone-torches to be able to read the menu but the decor and atmosphere are in Opium. Some very original dishes make up the food selection: some of te Dim Sum dishes are quite unsurprising but some are excellent, especially the fried ones....We recommend the aubergine and pumpkin "pot" dish. The house wines are good but a little pricy....More

Food excellent. The oysters very good and fresh. Favourite choice salmon curry and beef rendang. The lamb balls were very nice (mostly lamb) but the prawns dumplings could be more flavoured. Cocktels 50 shades of grey and red moon lovely. Waiters George and Esther brilliant....Lovely place.More
