When you come to Opheem, you get an insight into the inner workings of my mind. We’re striving to push the boundaries with Indian flavours, but with cooking techniques from all over the world, some traditional, and some very modern. At Opheem, I’ll be using the same paints as I’ve always done, to create a very different picture, on a very, very different canvas. Why? Because to evolve and adapt is what makes us human, and cooking is what sets us apart from the animals.

    I took my husband to Opheem for a birthday treat last Saturday. From start to finish we were treated to some amazing dishes. We chose the tasting menu. The variety of food was incredible. We started with drinks with some beautifully made canapés. We were then taken through to the restaurant and enjoyed the 10 course tasting menu which included fish, meat and vegetarian dishes all intricately and exquisitely presented. Chef brought our meat course to the table and had a chat with us. (All the time you can see right into the open plan kitchen where staff are preparing the intricate dishes). We then finished with 2 dessert courses and petit fours. I would definitely recommend this dining experience to others. You need to aim to have at least 3 hours to appreciate and enjoy the amazing tasting menu! The staff at Opheem could not have been nicer. It was a really great experience.

    I booked opheem for my 50th birthday. What an absolute treat. The food, service and staff are outstanding. The easiest way to describe the food is edible artwork, with beautiful skill. Nice touch that lots of different staff and chef’s coming to your table to describe the food. Keep up the good work.

    This was our third visit to Opheem, and yet again we were blown away by the quality of the food, service and ambience of this superb restaurant. From the point of entry, the staff ensured we wanted for nothing, and guided us through the dining experience with effortless grace, engaging with us throughout, asking our opinions of the vast array of tasty delights. We must give a shout out to Stefan, the sommelier. We decided to go from the wine menu, and found a number of orange wines. Stefan did an excellent job guiding us through the various taste profiles which allowed us to pick two excellent bottles during our stay. Every dish we had, from beginning to end was sublime, and I would find it difficult to pick an individual favourite, all served and explained superbly by the various chefs. On this occasion we were even fortunate enough to be served by Aktar himself. It is hugely apparent that every member of staff take pride and enjoy what they do. On this occasion, Stefan, Asha, Frosty and Alice stood out. For a lot of people, including us, this is not a cheap meal experience. But boy it’s worth every penny. We’ve already started saving up.

    Opheem provided an incredible experience of food and service. The attention to detail was amazing and you could see the amount of skill and work that went into every course. Aktar himself was helping plate the food and took it upon himself to serve and explain the dishes at least once to every table.

    Amazing food and love that the chefs deliver the food. It was beyond our expectations. There was a wait for some courses and the overall experience was around 4 hours so don't book anything else for the evening. The only thing that slightly marred it was a group of very loud males who had beeb in private dining but were then in the lounge for chocolates and coffee. They were definitely making their presence known and we didn't stay for coffee.

    An immersive experience from beginning to end. Relaxing drinks before dinner with 5 beautifully presented and tasty snacks which arrived sequentially. Each a work of art. We opted for the 10 course menu. I had the vegetarian menu and my 3 friends ate meat, one with no soy. All described in detail. After the meal we had 5 small sweets presented in style. It was only then that we realised we had been there for 5 hours. The kitchen was open and surprisingly calm. Each course was delicious, some so tasty that you didn’t want the experience to end. Value for money? Yes if you realise the effort that went into each course. I loved the decor, and the cutlery for each course was a work of art in itself. Some of the courses were quite chilli hot which suited us, but maybe not everyone. I’d have liked a larger non alcoholic drinks selection, there was only one beer on offer, but as an artistic experience it was first class.

    The food was outstanding and the range of the courses really impressed. My only negative observations were that the initial welcome was quite underwhelming and we had to wait quite a while to order our first drink in the lounge. Choice of wine by the glass was quite limited - increasingly using the coravin system I see more restaurants able to offer a broader selection

    What a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely incredible and unlike some tasting menus, there were plenty of courses and extras all of which had ‘wow’ moments. The service was also brilliant making the experience all the better. Only gripes were the noise level at times of diners talking loudly over the background music and being charged for water without being made aware of it.

    Amazing 10/10 From start to finish, a wonderful evening trying so much variation of food. We went for the 10 course Tasting menu, my goodness me, Im sure it was more like 20 by the time you got through everything. Our bill £500 for 2 of us , with wine, drinks, coffees and service charge. Absolutely one of the best experiences.

    Fantastic and enjoyable meal over 4 hours. Disappointed that the price increased from £125 each to £155 each from booking to actual meal date. This was probably due to increase in star rating from one to two recently.

    We absolutely love this restaurant. 6 snacks, 10 courses and 5 petit fours! It's great that you can see the chef/patron actually working in the kitchen at the pass, and he actually comes to serve some of the dishes. The dishes are all exquisite! Our favourite, strangely, was the carrot dish, followed by the potato dish - and we are not vegetarians. Service is superb. OK, this isn't cheap, but which 2 Michelin starred restaurant is. However, having visited a few Michelin starred restaurants, this offers better value than most. Love it!

    My husband and I enjoyed an amazing g meal here as a rare night out. The ambiance in the bar was just perfect so calm and relaxing and the cocktails we ordered were out of this world. The little snacks we had in the bar area were all beautiful too. The main dining area is very tastefully decorated with a lovely big open kitchen. We had the ten course menu which we both found exquisite and I would struggle to choose my favourite dish as they were all so amazing. Two stars very well deserved.

A special mention for the gorgeous relaxed lounge, the lighting and the atmosphere were fab, this is where you have your snacks and cocktails before moving to the table for dinner. Will go back for sure.

    My wife and I had an outstanding experience at Opheem. The entire evening was relaxed and enjoyable. The staff were excellent and the food was the best we have eaten. We shared a wine flight and were glad we went for this option. Being able to see the food being cooked just added to the atmosphere. Overall, it was an amazing experience and we would love to go back in the future for a special occasion.
