Nice service, but specially the food was above overall Dublin. Highly recommended.
Hi, Thank you so much for the visit and the positive review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your time with us and we appreciate the high praise for the food. We hope you return soon for a follow-up.
Great service, broad food selection and great drinks menu! Everyone was impressed with their food!

The outdoor setting in the Botanical garden is amazing,
Hi Kathy, Thanks for the detailed and positive feedback. It's clear that you're a repeat visitor! We really appreciate your custom and hope you'll continue to come back many more times. The Vietnamese rolls are always a popular choice! Hope you enjoyed choosing from the new cocktail menu too!
Good food, good service, would recommend and would visit again
Hi Michael, Thank you so much for the visit and the positive review. We really appreciate both, and are delighted that you enjoyed the food and service. We really appreciate the recommendation too and look forward to welcoming you back for your return visit soon
Great restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding.
Hi John, Thanks for the kind words and for visiting us. Delighted to read that you enjoyed the food as well as how our team took care of you. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Lovely modern looking venue. Very noisy. Food was nice but portions were too big. Staff ask "was there a problem with the food?" when we couldn't finish the large portions which I personally find extremely annoying. Prices are what you would expect for city centre.
Hi Sher, Thanks for the visit and the feedback. I appreciate that you found this annoying and I apologise, but I assure you it was with good intentions and only with the aim of ensuring that you were happy with all. But we note all feedback and try to learn each time, so this will be no different.
Fab food and cocktails. They even surprised us with a dessert and a candle in it as we were there celebrating a birthday.
Hi, Thank you for choosing us for your special event. We have all gained an appreciation for these occasions over the past couple of years and are proud that you chose us to celebrate. We are delighted you enjoyed the food and cocktails and hope you come back for more in the future.
Consistently good. Love the food here it never disappoints.
HI Liane, Thanks for the lovely review. It shows that you are a regular visitor which of course is the best type of feedback we can hope for! We hope you return again soon.
The whole experience was amazing! We got spring rolls & prawn crackers to start and lemongrass chicken and claypot lamb as a main. Both were the nicest Thai dishes I've ever had! Cocktails were also amazing and the staff were even kind enough to bring out a birthday brownie for our celebration! Thank you so much!
hi Nicole, Thanks for your detailed and positive feedback. I'm delighted you enjoyed it and of course we are very proud of the food and cocktails that we serve and the team that creates it all! I'm glad you chose us to celebrate your birthday event and hopefully you will return for lots more occasions in the future.
Staff are excellent and really good value for money x
Hi, Thank you so much for the great review. We can't ask for better than 5s across the board! We're very proud of the team working here, and of course we always aim to offer value for money so I'm delighted to read your review. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Food was delicious & came out very quick, cocktails were great as well, would highly recommend!
Hi Steph, Thanks for the great feedback and the recommendation. We hope you will return soon for another visit.
Food was very good but we paid a lot and were rushed out by the end of the evening. We got told we could put our wine in plastic cups to leave and it wasn’t very professional. Also told there were people waiting for our table however when we were leaving there was no one waiting. For a place like Opium it seems ridiculous to have a time limit for customers, it made us feels very rushed and not relaxed.
Hi, Thank you for the feedback, although it is clearly not pleasant to read about a disappointing experience. We need to ensure we can do a good job of turning our tables for the two or three dinner sittings that we operate. I assure you that if we moved you from the table, that we genuinely were expecting a new diner for that table, and we must sanitise everything between sittings. However, no excuses & we must do a better job of planning and then executing this part of the experience.
All good but when we arrived we were given a high bar stool at a high table. No alternative available! I had just had a hip replacement. It was difficult to manage. The manager brought me a chair with a back to help. Food had lovely flavours.
Hi Everum, Thank you for the visit and for sharing your feedback. I apologise for the initial inconvenience but I'm glad that we were able to rectify the situation somewhat. I'm delighted you enjoyed your meal and hope you will return in the near future.
Great location and food!!
Hi, Thank you so much for the great review. We can't ask for better than 5s across the board! We hope you come back for more of the same very soon.
We enjoyed our dinner. Everything tastes great! I love the cocktails too. Definitely, recommend this place. Ambience is 💖
Hi, Thank you so much for the great review. I'm delighted to read that you enjoyed all parts of your visit. We're constantly looking to improve so you'll see even more changes when you come back next time, with live music starting soon on weekends and DJs late night too! We hope the ambience and atmosphere will continue to improve even more!
Place was empty service was sporadic food was ok but overall very expensive for an average curry
Hi Caroline, Thanks for your visit and of course your feedback. It's disappointing to read about an experience like this, and it is certainly not in keeping with our usual performance or feedback. I can only hope that maybe you would give us another chance in the future and see a much-improved experience. I apologise that this visit was not up to standard.
I went for dinner with four friends. We sat in the outdoor covered seating area and enjoyed a really nice meal. Both the food and the service were excellent. The only issue was that it was raining and the outdoor cover was dripping down the back of my friend’s chair. Other than that it was a really pleasant experience and it was good value.
Booked table online. Disappointed we were given an outdoor table. We were very cold, no heaters on.
Fab as always
Since we arrived until we left everything was amazing. The service was a smooth and always so kind to us, the Food was served always on time , really quick but perfectly plated and cooked, the Vietnamese rolls were amazing among the lamb. few options of desserts however both of them really good. Lovely place to have and amazing food with family and friends
Booked a table for brunch to celebrate my mother’s birthday. The venue was beautiful the food was delicious, service was impeccable. Couldn’t fault it in any way, totally made my Mother’s day special with a rendition of happy birthday and a lovely dessert with a candle for her to blow out. Couldn’t recommend this restaurant more 😊
Very interesting brunch menu, delicious drinks, will definitely be back.
Most amazing Thai restaurant in Dublin
Hi, Thank you so much for the great review and high praise! It's obviously very pleasing for the whole team to read comments like this on a Saturday morning! So thanks for the great start to our day and we hope to welcome you back again soon.
What a lovely space, just round the back of Wexford street. It was like being in an oasis - bright, loads of plants and greenery, spacious. The staff were delightful and the food delicious and in decent-sized portions. We only had a mix of starters but we were eying up the main courses going to other tables, and they all looked (and smelled) great.
Nice food, really nice staff and delightful cocktails
Hi Saoirse, Thanks for the lovely review. It sounds like a nice combination, and we are delighted you enjoyed yourself with us.
Perfect venue for a long overdue catchup with friends! Chilled vibes and fabulous food. Highly recommend the brownie for dessert so leave room 😂
Hi Hollie, Thanks so much for the great review and positive feedback. It gives us great pleasure to see people reuniting after so long apart and we're delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your time with us. We hope you all come back soon!

Poor food, especially when price is taken into consideration
Hi Jason, Thanks for your visit and for taking the time to share your feedback. It is however very disappointing to read feedback like this, and as it is so out of keeping with our usual scores, I am concerned that something went drastically wrong for your particular table.

Food was delicious, service was great and I had a lovely cocktail. I would definitely be back. Many thanks

The food was amazing and the cocktails were delicious. My girlfriend and I were sat between two tables of loud women unfortunately so that was a bit annoying.
