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.

    Truly deserving its second Michelin star. Starting with expertly crafted cocktails in the sleek, modern lounge featuring a half dozen “snacks” you’ve never seen before, throughout the ten course dinner, served in a minimalist dining area adjacent to the open kitchen, each item is perfect in texture and full taste. Each is expertly served by knowledgeable wait staff and sometimes by kitchen staff. Each plate is small in size, huge in flavour, never filling always enjoyable. There is a wine pairing option available which includes some new & old world varietals that were unfamiliar and interesting, and always appropriate. Full wine list. Expensive but the perfect destination for a special occasion. Beyond highly recommended.

    We have been here a number of times, but tonight was the best Evening yet. It was a culinary masterclass from a chef that is well worth 2 Michelin stars. We are fortunate enough to dine in Michelin star restaurants on a very regular basis, but Aktar is now a truly excellent chef, with an amazing Sommelier & a team that works in total harmony. A Tip: don't skimp- go for the full 10 course Tasting menu & matching Wine flight. It is well worth the money & takes the experience to the next level.

    Just a WOW from us. Absolutely amazing. Every course and snacks were beautifully cooked and tasted divine. Choice of wine for my main courses ( taster menu ) by the sommelier was perfect. Very attentative / knowledgeable staff were excellent. Great food great service great vibe. Well worth 2 Michelin stars 🌟 🌟

    First time back since 2021 & of course now with 2 stars! The whole experience was epic & topped off with being served the “main” course by Aktar himself. The food was simply stunning & the service was exceptional. Won’t wait 3 years before visiting again

    Had the 5 course taster menu for lunch on my husband’s birthday . The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. We were running a bit late due to traffic and this was no problem. We had about three little tasters with our pre meal drinks before being taken to our table in the restaurant. The 5 course lunch was 6 courses . Beautifully presented plates with fantastic food nicely spiced , not too overwhelming. Service was friendly and timely, we didn't feel rushed nor sitting around waiting for ages. Afterwards we were back in the large bar area for petit fours. It was all perfect and my husband loved it. The decor is very stylish and contemporary . Definitely the place to try for a special occasion. Thank you to all at Opheem for making it special for us .

    Decor was bland, 50 shades of biege & some chairs in bar very uncomfortable. Food was style over substance & mostly tasted samey, (mango heavy). Nothing special stands out, it was okay but expecting better for £125 per head. Service was discreet.

    Another outstanding evening at Opheem. What a truly fabulous experience Aktar and the team have created! From the moment you step through the door you feel special and welcomed. The team are all very down to earth with a delightful calm air, making the whole experience totally immersive and inclusive. It's really a 3-4 hour 'theatre' experience, being able to not only watch but also meet the amazingly talented people who create the delights they place before you is truly special. If you're lucky and get to meet Aktar then even better (we were lucky enough) - seems he is there regularly which is great because on so many occasions you can invest in such nice places and the inspiration behind the creation is nowhere to be seen. Not here! Thank you again - we will be back!

    Having read a lot of reviews, I had a relatively good idea of what to expect. We got the train from london to come for lunch, an easy 10 minute walk from Birmingham new street station. On arrival we were seated in the bar, which felt very much, and appropriately , like an exclusive departure lounge . We were presented ( a little erratically timing wise) lots of lovely starting snacks and ordered a very nice take on a gimlet. The lounge bar was a brilliant way to shrug off the shackles of “normal “ life. The main dining room had lots of space between tables, and a buzzy atmosphere. We had the full tasting menu, and right up until the final course our top 3 courses of the day kept changing; rarely has a tasting menu kept us so on our toes , delivering something slightly unexpected throughout. The matching wines were excellent; a first for us was a wine from Luxembourg. We wound down back at the departure lounge with some petit fours and a final drink. Shame the fresh mint tea pot was so small. Wonderful approachable and friendly service, amazing food, and well worth the “day out” from london.

    This is probably the most amazing food I have ever had. The flavours are varied and the whole place is geared towards enjoying food and flavours. I like how they let you sit and have a few tasters in their sitting area before moving into the dining room for the main courses. This is in full view of the kitchen and it’s clear they use the freshest of ingredients. Such an incredible dining experience and we will definitely be back.

    A very pleasant polite greeting as one enters the reception, a cloakroom was available, we were escorted to a lounge bar area , very relaxing unfussy decor where we enjoyed the Opheem experience of "amuse bouche" /hors d'œuvres with drinks. Our waiter/ waitress described the beautifully presented and crafted foods before us. We dined in the large dining room , separate to where we initially sat. The main meal was delicious and incredibly created . The 4 of us were utterly delighted with our afternoon at the restaurant and the staff were very polite but friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit

    An amazing experience! Every dish was complete with a range of flavours and textures. A very smart menu, perfect fusion cuisine! I could not pick a favourite everything was just outstanding! The proteins served that day were cooked to perfection, the Asian flavours were on point! I was skeptical of the scallop korma dish but it blew me away. I’d come again.

    Simply incredible! We went to Opheem for a 10 course New Year’s Eve celebration and it did not disappoint. We are both vegan so contacted the restaurant before to check they could cater for us and to our delight they replied to say we would be catered for. The 10 courses ended up being 19 with all of the additional extras. I cannot describe how delicious every single mouthful was. Aktar even came out to our table to talk us through two different courses. All of the staff were lovely and it was a very relaxed atmosphere. I have never eaten food like it! The attention to detail was admirable and we were delighted that so much effort had been put in to creating vegan versions of their dishes. We cannot wait to go back! A huge thank you to Aktar and his team for such a memorable evening
