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.

Experiences

  • Lunch A La Carte

    Multiple dates available

  • 10 Course Opheem Seasonal Tasting Menu

    Multiple dates available

    Our seasonal 10 Course Tasting Menu takes you on the full experience with us at Opheem. The menu is designed to take you on a journey through the regional Indian & International influences we utilise to create such a unique style of cooking at Opheem. This is the complete experience and what we our proudest of at Opheem. Our current menu is displayed on our website but is also liable for change as new dishes are developed.

A real treat long awaited due to Covid!
Took my Father who is 69 for a belated birthday treat as he really loves Indian food. Aktar & the team blew his mind & we all thouroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Dad immediately ordered a curry box so that he can enjoy back home in Lincolnshire.
Definitely recommend, will certainly be returning & will be ordering more curry boxes in the meantime.

The food was outstanding, we unfortunately were put on a overlarge table for 4 people in the overflow room which was cold. We asked for a smaller table but they were unable to accommodate, i feel when you are paying these prices that they should not have accepted our booking without an appropriate table. The toilets where messy, both male and female, again when paying these prices you would expect them to be pristine. I would reiterate the food was fantastic but sadly the other factors meant that we wont be visiting again.

Food was simply superb. Wonderful service. Really enjoyed being served by the chefs. 10 course was a bit much for me and my wife but that is our own fault for doing 10 courses.

First of all, we been in several restaurants with Michelin star and so we knew what to expect.
I am not going to comment on the food, because it was simply marvelous, if anything, too abundant.
We had the snacks at the bar, which was a bit uncomfortable and they gave us no napkin for many courses you ate with your hands, but at least they gave us tap water.
We then, moved to the table inside the restaurant and it was so noisy we couldn't hear the waiters explanation of the preparations or even our own conversation. The light was so low we couldn't appreciate most the ingredients or even read the little card with the menu.
Too loud, too busy, too dark to really enjoy our dinner without stress.
Went back to the bar for the pettit fours and turns out they don't have coffee, may I remind you this is a Michelin star restaurant.
Our last surprise was when the bill arrived, five pounds for tap water!!?? and a ten percent for service, on hundred fifteen pounds' close menu, really!!??
We believe that the value of the restaurant with such prestigious award is not just in the food but the whole experience, and with all honesty, this time, we can say we only enjoyed the food.

What an amazing restaurant. The service and food is exceptional. It is such a unique experience with the chefs presenting their dishes to you personally and the théâtre of seeing the kitchen in full dance was so interesting to see. We have been to several top restaurants but Opheem has topped them all. Fantastic!

What an amazing experience. Highly recommended to anyone that enjoys their fine dining and experience to match. Having had the 10 Course Tasting Menu along with the Wine pairing, it was perfect. Every single dish was delicious and imaculately presented and the wine pairings were spot on.

If you're looking for that special dining experience, Opheem is the place you must visit.

Fabulous experience. Food, flavours amazing. All staff fabulous. Love the way that you can see the kitchen and that the chefs were part of serving your food and explaining about the flavours and the food. Excellent presentation and love the welcome and snacks before entering the restaurant. It was quite expensive but as I had a voucher and it was a special occasion it was very much worth it.

We had a voucher bought us as a gift for our 30 th wedding anniversary so we booked the five course taster menu. Opheem has very Impressive surroundings with a relaxing ambiance .
We were well looked after from start to finish , the service was impeccable
And the food was amazing!!
Understandably expensive given the attention to detail.
I would highly recommend for a special occasion but far too pricey for us to use regularly!!

Disappointed - I had visited previously, around 2 years ago and was blown away however, my recent experience left me underwhelmed. My partner and I went for the 10 course tasting and the food, although visually stunning, was not as flavoursome as I remember. The experience did not feel special this time and we probably wouldn't go back.

Some of the dishes were outstanding but within the 10 courses there were a few which were mediocre.
We had a vegetarian and a pescatarian in the party. One dish had to be remade as it contained meat which meant a longish wait for their dish being served and there was confusion from the waiting staff as to which dish was for which diner.
Although there were highlights in the meal we weren’t wowed by our experience.

Fabulous food. Staff very knowledgeable. Loved the chefs bringing the main dishes and explaining all about them.

The main dishes were exceptional and the 5 "snacks" were superb.

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.
