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.

Booked at noon for lunch we were seated in comfort in the bar area, offered tasters, the menu and ordered drinks, a very pleasant start. The three course menu had choices and our party tried all of them, to universal approval. Service could not have been better. Coffee afterwards in the bar area came with delicious petite fours, showcasing more of the skills of the kitchen staff.

3rd visit to Opheem and bought the lock-down boxes over the summer. We have always had fantastic food and always happy to make recommendations.
However we did not enjoy the 10 course tasting as much as the original a-la-carte offering…. not for the price.
The service was fantastic and the ambience excellent.

This was my third visit to Opheem and yet again the food, service and surroundings were absolutely stunning.
The atmosphere is always so relaxed, and I love the touch of the chef's bringing out the dishes and explaining the flavours.
That sauce with Fish dish on the lunch menu was the sexiest thing I've ever eaten.
Well done Aktar & team, you are the shining stars of Birmingham's growing culinary scene!

Great experience, beautifully prepared courses, delivered and explained by the chef. Décor and environment we loved. The walls in the restaurant were concrete, but coated to look like velvet in the ambient light.
The wine flight was carefully selected and married beautifully with the courses.
We are Aktar@home people (the boxes), but this is a different experience, more refined and on a different path giving a nod to Indian cuisine but not full on spice and heat, so should be good for anyone one and everyone to experience.
These are two totally different experiences, but both good/excellent.
Try the 10 course tasting menu with wine flight and then buy the home delivery boxes from the website for the full on Indian flavour experience.
We love the Biryani and Curry boxes, they're excellent and serve 6 to 8 people or multiple meals for two (can freeze too).
We went for our wedding anniversary.

What a superb experience, both on the palate and the rest of the body’s senses. Aktar has found a way to extract incredible flavours from all manor of ingredients. All the staff were fantastic, and very open and approachable, they thoroughly knew their food and were very explanatory about each dish and the techniques used in their creation. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and will return as soon as we can. Looking forward to our next visit, a lot!

I am fortunate to have eaten in many fine restaurants around the world over the years and Opheem is right up there with the very best, the way Akrar has created a culinary journey with each dish having its own story and heritage makes one feel you are really dinning at his table. Love the open kitchen, so clean and tidy (mine never looks like that when I am cooking)

You are always greeted with a smile and welcomed in. It is always really clean and tidy from the first part where you are seated for your nibbles, to the actual table you have your main tasters at.
The service is amazing, they are always polite and never overbearing, but are always there when you need them. The food is always top notch. I always recommend Opheem's to everyone.

Celebration for moving house - despite us arriving in DIY/house moving clothing and looking a bit on the bedraggled side, the staff were polite and friendly, and made the evening really enjoyable.
The food was an absolute delight - the pre-dinner snacks were quirky, tasty, innovate, and really set the tone for the rest of the dining experience. Each course was a palette of complimentary flavours. The non-alcoholic drinks also complimented the menu and provided a great counterpoint in terms of flavour.
This was, hands down, the best of all our Michelin restaurant experiences to date.
