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.

I had met Chris (Restaurant Manager) before my dine in experience at the Opium, he had helped me reserve a table at Dining in the dark. I think they have the owners.

The food, ambience, price, location is absolutely fantastic.

And don't forget to try their Cheese and Raisin Samosas.

Thank Nikita S

Came here for dinner and drinks. Service was very good and the butter prawns were amazing! Definately worth a visit and good value if you’re visiting! The 50 shades of grey drink is hilarious and has a back story and comes with handcuffs!

Good meal although more expensive than KL average - on par with London prices. Cocktails nice and mains were super tasty, served surprisingly quickly. Had a bit of live music too (Monday night). Didn't get offered dessert menu/options and did have a cocktail arrive I hadn't ordered, but otherwise all good. Worth a trip for food but not a cheap night. This place also adds 10% service charge which isn't usual for this KL area at least.

We went to Opium KL whilst on our honeymoon. The food was great, the service was very good, and the restaurant even gave us some honeymoon treats at the end of our meal as they knew that we were on our honeymoon, which was a lovely touch! It is a little more expensive than some other restaurants in KL but we would definitely recommending it!
