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.

    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.

    This place is outstanding the only thing that let it down was when we first arrived at 8.19pm table was 8.30 we were told can you go to the pub next door for a bit??? I said no and so then we were escorted to the lounge. This hasn’t affected my visit but I think needs to be addressed..

    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.

I would definitely recommend and also visit again. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Thanks to everyone involved. I also really appreciated the birthday card thank you.

    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.

    Had the vegetarian tasting menu. The food was gorgeous and the cocktails outstanding! Staff all really friendly. 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.

    The plusses: brilliant food; fabulous cocktails; lovely staff; knowledgeable sommelier; and assistance dog made very welcome. BUT: the disabled loo had no loo-roll and nothing to dry your hands with; and - despite all the times that I was asked about allergies (before and during the visit) - the main course was not adapted to account for this which I had been told would happen. Luckily the waiter explained each dish as it was brought to the table so I heard the ingredients and an accident was averted. Despite this 'blip', the whole experience was fun.

    A really memorable evening with friends. A nice welcome; interesting cocktails; friendly staff. Sommelier recommended less expensive wines without being asked to. Stunning food, beautifully presented. Well worth their recently awarded second Michelin star. And the chef-patron was there helping to serve at tables.

    A brilliant experience. We were welcomed into the relaxed atmosphere of the bar area for some delicious appetisers and drinks before being invited in the dining area for our 10 course meal. We were blown away by the attentiveness of the staff, who were personable whilst looking after multiple tables. The food was epic from first course to last, with stunning flavours throughout. We loved the fact that the chefs brought out the food to explain what we were eating. An experience we will never forget.

    We travelled up from Suffolk for our second visit to Opheem and it was just as good as the first time. We went with family this time as wanted them to try this great restaurant and they were of the same opinion. Great interaction from Chef Aktar and his team which makes the whole dining experience even better. We think this is a fantastic Restaurant and would thoroughly recommend a visit. Will we go back?

    Fantastic experience! Excellent food, fine wine and great customer service. The venue has a great ambiance with the pre and post dinner lounge. The staff were pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. They were knowledgeable about the food being served. All food was spectacularly presented and extremely tasty. Can definitely see why this is a 2 Michelin starred restaurant! The open kitchen demonstrates how the team work together to deliver the quality food with Akhtar very hands on! It is pricey but for a special occasion the experience is worth it!
