Square Meal Review of Opium ?

Known for its cool, sleek vibes and cosmopolitan style, Opium brings some pan-Asian diversity to Glasgow’s financial district. At lunchtime, local shoppers and business suits crowd in for an extensive menu of traditional dim sum including, perhaps, satay wontons, crispy duck rolls, salt-and-pepper tofu and steamed crab dumplings – plus noodles, soup and rice plates. In the evening, the kitchen casts its net to all corners of the Fast East – so expect to see monkfish claypot with shiitake mushrooms, Thai chilli beef and Assam-style squid with tamarind paste alongside steamed sea bass with soy, ginger and spring onion or roast duck with ginger and pineapple. For a trendy flourish, order one of Opium’s racy cocktails such as a Shanghai night (Bombay Sapphire gin, fresh watermelon and lemon with Aperol and pomegranate syrup). Good theatre deals too.
