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.

Fabulous experience. Tables very large so difficult to speak to person on far side. We were only four round the table.
However the food was amazing.

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.

Restaurants that charge £200 a head need to do something special. The food needs to be special or the service or maybe they just make you feel special on your special occasion. Opheem rushed us in, rushed us through, boring food and disappointing service in a grey, dim and noisy setting. Michelin star by numbers, phoning in the service and the overall experience was a massive let down. I have had a better time at Nando’s.

During the twenty five minutes it took to get us a cocktail and a beer, a small glass of the latter, we had time to notice the decor. A cross between an NCP car park and an eighties themed funeral home, with lighting whose lack of design inspiration was reflected in its lack of illumination.
The amuse bouche arrived in quick succession whilst we still longed for a drink, they were good until two chillies were served. They were actually pretend chillies, in reality being made of fluffed up wall filler and candle wax.
Starter was a salty burned corn on the cob with a tiny ice cream cone, no idea why.
Then a few highlights, some lamb pate on tasty bread, a decent trout covered in red pepper dip, a new take on potatoes in a foamy dish. And some low lights, white fish with the texture of over microwaved cutlets, vegetables in a broth but the tomatoes were squishy.
Main course was lamb with greens in a mild curry sauce, inspired by Waitrose ready meals I am guessing. At this point I had given up with caring about the wine flight, you can only listen to stories about wine for so long when all you get is a splash of insipid white wine that serves as neither flavour enhancer nor thirst quencher.
Self obsessed, pretentious and failed to deliver on food, ambiance, service, value or experience.

Food is even better than the hype. New flavour combinations, textures and presentations to impress the most seasoned gastronome.

Modern decor and music, this feels like the future of fine dining.

Aktar was front and centre running the show. Good luck to him and his team.
