Description: Introducing Opium KL! Established on 12th July 2014, this unique outlet focuses on Asian Oriental delights with a twist; such as Phoenix Dumpling, Fern Leaf Salad, Crispy Duck Noodles, Wagyu Beef Rendang, and the signature Beef Brisket & Tendon Stew just to name a few. Inspired by the Opium regimes of the east, the interior speaks for itself. Furnished with age-old artifacts such as an opium bed in the Rose Room, opium pipes and huge Chinese wine pots displayed vividly at the Communal area, the outlet aspires a 1930s-1960s look and feel. It's slogan, Eat Drink Man Woman takes a more subtle approach to distinguish Opium KL as the place for people to unwind and focus purely on the food, conversation and quality time.

We love the vibe of this place. It was kind of chill and hip. Though yes, it's in the tourist area and you will see lots of tourists.

The food is amazing! We ordered the beef rendang, the coconut curry prawn and the Crispy tofu. Beef rendang is recommended, me and my boyfriend were fighting over who gets more of the rendang! I like how the buns are so soft and fits perfectly with the dish.

For the drinks, I had a calamansi ginger and it was refreshing!

A great experience. Food very good value, varied and tasty. Service was just right - friendly but without being over the top. Cocktails were great. Duck was outstanding - the most tender I've had. First class in so many ways. Well done Opium.

This nicely decorated restaurant deserves to be higher up on the rankings. We actually went 3 times during our stay.

It has the look of an authentic little asian restaurant with a nicely decorated interior. There was atmospheric live music played throughout.

The food was very nice. The satey and orange chicken would be a good pick. The staff is very attentive and asks multiple times if all is satisfactory. We also had soup. We mentioned afterwards that it was a bit too spicy for our taste, but it was just a small remark from our side. The manager came and apologized and actually gave us a free dessert.

When we came back again the next few days manager recognized us again. We had a lovely conversation with him whilst waiting for our food and enjoyed ourselves again.

Go visit, you won't regret it.

Every drink is unique and with a story, which makes this bar special. The drink presentations were never so good. All the decorations and service created a elegant atmosphere. Worth for a return!

Good atmosphere, lovely food on the main bar strip in KL.

Very cheap prices, even for the cocktails. Have a good variety of vegetarian options too.
