Great drinks, the sweet potato fries are incredible, the spring rolls I could’ve done without (they were still good). I had the clay pot lamb and it was to die for. My friend’s vietnamese chicken salad was killer also.

The food and drinks were amazing. The drinks were so well made with such effort for a good price and the staff were very accommodating and lovely. The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect for a birthday dinner and the complimentary brownie for dessert was so thoughtful.

Service was impeccable, we arrived with our 9month old baby and the staff were so accommodating - provided a nice high chair and brought a plate and spoon for her to eat too.
The food was delicious- highly recommend the prawn dumplings, the shaking beef and the beef salad was phenomenal. Yummy cocktails and great ambience. Can’t wait to go back again!

I and my friends had a great time dining at the botanic garden. The service was really good and we really enjoyed the food. I ordered the Claypot lamb, it was absolutely delicious and the portion was filling. I also got a cheesecake treat on the house since was my birthday. Would definitely visit again!

Had very high hopes for this place, the cocktails were filled top to bottom with crushed ice so you basically got 2 sips and it was gone. The food was not good. Mix of cold meat on top of warm rice? The prawns where very cheap tasting. Chicken skewers literally melted in your mouth like mush, weirdest texture of chicken I have ever eaten, complained and they said it was undercooked and were apologetic. Just overall let down as I was very much looking forward to coming here, couldn’t have left quick enough. I’ve never left a bad review before on anything but the hype this place gets I just don’t want others to fall for it like I did

I have always had a great dining experience at Opium but this was my first time eating in the beer garden. It was lashing rain but we were fully protected against the rain so our outdoor dining experience wasn't effected. The food was amazing quality as always. It has a fantastic menu (great for vegans and vegetarians aswell). The cocktails are out of this world aswell. The pornstar martinis are unreal. I noticed the price of the food has reduced dramatically, although we had an early dinner so perhaps that changes after a certain time. Service was bang on aswell. Will return here soon

We always craved for good Asian food in Dublin, but our cravings came to an end when we had the most amazing pan-Asian food here. Botanical garden speaks for the ambience itself, it was beautiful, just the thing we were looking for a lunch date. Service, ambience, food I’d give 5 stars. Can’t wait to go back again 🧡

It was very good. The restaurant looked amazing, the food was good could have been a bit better. The service was amazing we didn’t need to wait long for the next course. Always had a member of staff check up on us to make sure we are ok.

Only okay, food came out very fast which made me skeptical of the freshness. The drinks were okay but pricey at 12 euro and the last drink I ordered ‘sour’ was undrinkable. Other than that it was an okay experience
