Opium specialises in asian fusion cuisine, offering a mix of traditional Dim Sum and fusion dishes

It is great for working lunches or to catch up with friends. As night falls our interior transforms, and is perfect for an intimate dinner or celebration with family and friends.

Our approach to eating is informal, without set courses. Dim Sum and larger dishes are eaten together, served tapas style, allowing everyone around the table to share. 

We highly recommend selecting dishes with variety in mind, mild balancing spicy, fried accompanying steamed; and vegetables complimenting meat.

We’re open everyday and look forward to welcoming you here in the heart of Glasgow city centre.


Head chef Kwan Yu Lee has created a menu for Opium reflecting all of his experiences and abilities. Lee who is ‘old school’ trained, worked his way up from humble beginnings as a 16 year-old apprentice alongside master chefs in Hong Kong.
Having learned the classical foundations of Chinese cooking, Lee was determined to take his culinary skills to new heights and moved to the UK, absorbing techniques, ideas and ingredients from across the Far East. Some 35 years later, we are proud to have Lee in our kitchen at Opium.

Our fusion cuisine with an extensive drinks selection has been designed to offer you an exceptional dining experience
