    Very attentive staff on arrival and lovely seated area for drinks before being shown to our table. We were asked if we were celebrating anything and mentioned it was an anniversary, for which they done a small plate towards the end which was a nice touch. We had the 8 course tasting menu which includes 4 “snacks” There are some hearty dishes on the menu and portion sizes are actually quite large so towards the end we were uncomfortably full, I maybe expected some lighter dishes considering it was 8 courses plus 4 snacks. There’s no doubt some of the food is excellent with the lamb biriyani being my highlight! We were however disappointed with the service (Particularly one waitress) everything was rushed, cutlery thrown to the table, I was still sipping the lamb soup and it was taken away and at around course 4 knocked the candle all over the table and my jeans, accidents happen ofcourse but it was due to her rushing and then for the rest of the evening we had to sit at a table covered in dry candle wax. Another thing that disappointed was the topping up of the wine, we ordered a bottle of red which for some reason is taken away from the table. By the time we got to the lamb biriyani and goat cutlet our glasses were empty despite a request asking for them to be topped up. This then starts to leave a tarnish on what could have been a perfect dining experience.

    Food here is a big step up on your normal Indian restaurant. Interior design too is classy. Kitchen can be viewed from the dining room which is nice. The delicacy of each dish and combinations of flavours was very good. Generally service was very good too if I could find a fault it would be the flow of each couse. Even with the little free extras there were some delays. Otherwise a lovely evening to celebrate our anniversary.

    We went with somefriends for a pre-birthday celebration. The four of us all chose to go for the 8 course taster menu, and we were so glad thatwe did. Every dish was prepared fantastically, and the flavours were amazing. Portions were generous, and the staff friendly and helpful. We can't wait to book again!

    Myself and my husband went to Opheem on Valentines Day lunch time, to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The whole experience from start to finish is amazing. The atmosphere, food and staff are great and couldn’t fault it. When booking I called to let them know it’s my husband’s birthday and they noted it. After finishing our food ,we went to the bar area for coffee ,and they brought a lovely plate with happy birthday written in milk chocolate and white chocolate which was lovely. Also they gave him a cute happy birthday card. Extremely happy with the experience and won’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

    We visited to celebrate Valentines Day early, nothing was too much trouble, including taking delivery of flowers for me so that they could be on the table when we arrived. The service was second to none and the food was, without question, the best meal I have ever eaten. We opted for the 8 course tasting menu and 8 course vegetarian tasting menu, every dish looked and tasted exceptional. Favourite dishes were the Gajar, the Nandu and the Dopiaza. The amount of flavour that Aktar and his team manage to extract from some humble ingredients is astounding. Thank you to Aktar for the amazing food and Andrew and his team in the restaurant for the incredible service and making our dining experience and our celebration so memorable.

    Visited last Saturday with friends who had recommended Opheem. It is a very classy establishment, but also very friendly and not at all pretentious. We had the 8 course tasting menu which was a delight from start to finish. This, along with the extra ‘amuse bouche’ felt like great value for money, especially considering how exquisite the dishes were and the attention to detail given to each. My highlights were the lovely cucumber square (I wanted to eat loads of them), the cauliflower custard with langoustine, and the sublime lamb biryani and cutlet. The desserts were also delicious - beautifully spiced. We had the classic wine flight too which proved to be very well chosen and rather lovely. The petit fours which came with our coffees were gorgeous, my favourites being the jelly and the mango chocolate. This is a fabulous restaurant and I loved everything about the whole experience.

    A few hiccups on arriving with the lack of a welcome and a delay getting drinks at the bar. After this everything went well. Shown into the impressive dining room. Where the kitchen can be seen through a glass partition. Reasonable choice of dishes for this quality of restaurant. On top of what you order a number of additional course roll in too. We found the food to be very creative and quite unique. Service was very good and wine by the glass added to the whole experience. It's not cheap but good value.

    First time eating at Opheem, it was my husbands birthday and we were both looking forward to trying the Resturant out. The inside was absolutely stunning and the staff were really friendly. We sat in the bar and had Amuse-Bouche whilst having a drink. It was a really nice way to start our eating experience. We were then taken through to the restaurant which was lovely. We went with the 3 course lunch menu, fabulous food and excellent service. A lovely young waiter called Lucas served us, he was very good!! My husband was even given a Birthday card, which I thought was a nice touch. We really did have a lovely afternoon, it was a real treat. Thank you!! We will certainly be coming back.

    I had high hopes for this place after being a huge fan of Lasan. We booked for 12 and arrived 10-15 minutes early (invite says arrive 30 mins before) and we were stood waiting in the cold until gone 12 which wasn’t great! The bar and decor was stunning, service was great but I just wasn’t blown away by the food. We went for the 5 course tasting menu, as we would in any Michelin star restaurant. The best dish was the crab by far, the mango sorbet was sour, and the chicken dish i just wouldnt rate as a dish on a tasting menu, to have to serve my own rice and sauce like im sat in a curry house just didnt work for me. It was enjoyable but for the money, I dont think its worth it. Shame!

    Visited for the first time last night. Will definitely not be the last. Everything was superb, the staff were so friendly, the food was fantastic. We went for my husbands birthday and they made it very special. It is Asian food like no other we have tasted. We plan to take our friends so they can also experience this restaurant.

    We came here for the Lunch A La Carte on a Saturday. From the second we walked in, we received the kind of attention and treatment you would expect from a Michelin-starred restaurant. The bar we walked into has a beautiful blossom tree as its centre-piece and you were immediately feeling comfortable as you sipped your sparkling wine or, in my case, Moscow Mule cocktail. It was while we were sat here that we were able to speak to the head chef too, which was great - a really friendly and personable chap. Shortly after, we were guided through to our table and the food was just, well, out of this world. I went for the Kekda to start, followed by the Thangri Masala as the main and Rewandchini as the dessert. All three courses were lovingly crafted and quality of the rice and naan in addition firmly reminded you this wasn't any ordinary curry you were going out for. The fact we were treated to half a bottle of wine each with the meal was fantastic, but the absolute cherry on top was my wife, her mum and stepdad being able to go into the kitchen and speak to Aktar Islam himself. By all accounts, a lovely chap who was more than willing to speak to - and have photos with - diners, of which one was a particular fan! I would recommend a meal here in an absolute heartbeat.

    Go to Opheem, it is an absolute must!!!!!!!!! From the time our party of 8 people walked through the door it was a perfect experience and one not to be missed. The relaxed ambiance, coupled with the friendliness of all staff was the foundation for an excellent evening. We had the 8 course Taster Menu with the Private Dining. I would 100% recommend the taster menu as there were a number of courses I would not have tried only for this option. Hard to believe I can not choose 1 as a favorite as they were all so amazing. By the time you have all your palette cleansers, realistically there are about 13 courses. The waiting staff were all educated on each dish and took time and pride in talking through each course. Really the most amazing evening. It was also wonderful to have a place you could sit and talk across a dining table and actually here each other speak in a beautiful and calm atmosphere. The evening was to celebrate my friends birthday and the team surprised us all by bring in this beautiful selection of sweet treats at the end. Outstanding. I look forward to going back there are trying the main menu. Thank you to the wonderful team at Opheem for being so accommodating and working with your partners at Craft to fit is in at such short notice - I have never known outstanding customer service like it.

    We went for the 8 course taster menu with the wine pairing which we all thoroughly enjoyed. All the dishes were perfect excellent flavours and presentation was amazing. We really enjoyed the wines with every course although we didn’t have the exclusive selection we still enjoyed the wines. The service, when we arrived we was greeted and took a seat in the bar as we was early. We was then taken through to our table and was served by a very well spoken professional polish young man, he was very attentive and definitely knew his stuff. Unfortunately he then must have gone for a break and we was then served by a lady who we all past comment on that we felt rushed and she was quite abrupt with the service that she provided, didn’t explain the wines well and at points leant across in front of me to collect plates, not service I would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. At one point we even passed comment on she would be more suited to a Nando’s or fast food. This unfortunately put a dampener on what was being a perfect meal.

    We arrived for the midday sitting. The staff were fantastic throughout, friendly, charming and couldn't do enough for you. Like most Michelin restaurants, we love the fact that they explain the ingredients of each dish too. We had complimentary snacks in between courses, which were delicious, including a spicy brioche. I went for the mutton starter which was nice and spicy, but not enough to over power the flavour of the meet. I then went for the Tandorri chicken, which was off the bone in a massala sauce. The chicken was lovely and tender and full of flavour. The only negative I'd say is that I spent the next 24 hours burping every 15 minutes and it smelt like Heinz tomato soup. It wasn't pleasant. That might say more about my digestive system then the food though. Would go again. Overall it just cost us £90 for 2 people, a starter and main course and a couple of soft drinks.

    Fantastic food and great atmosphere. This a dining experience based on Indian cuisine but taste and creativity is on a different level. Have tried it several times and there is always something that is different and delightful. Look forward to going back

    Our experience at Opheem was outstanding from start to finish. The restaurant itself is gorgeous and service throughout was faultless. I ordered the vegetarian tasting menu and the flavours were insanely good. Such delicious food, some of the best dishes I’ve ever tasted and all so beautifully presented. Cocktails were also fabulous. Can’t wait to go again!

    Visited for lunch this weekend and went for the 3 course a la carte menu, what a meal it was!! The amuse bouche were to die for, super tasty and unexpected, followed by lamb topped bread roll with a lovely quenelle of whipped buttery sauce. And this is before the starters! Soft shelled crab was exquisite, my cod main was spot on as was the chicken. Seemed rude not to have a desert both of which were excellent too. Better still this was only £35 per head and included a bottle of wine between the pair of us. The restaurant was busy and buzzing, don’t go if you are grumpy and like it like a library, this place is rocking! Cannot think where you can get better food for such good value, I want to go back again NOW and do the taster menu! Massive kudos to chef Neil Withers, you have done Aktar proud!

    Let us tart with the good aspects: Nice bar with interesting drink list and outstanding service. Now the sad facts. The set menu is too long and there is too much food for a restaurant of this class. The restaurant is far too noisy for meaningful conversations. The service is arrogant and the waiters just automatically repeat a standard presentation of the courses, but nobody can hear what they actually say. Good and interesting tastes, though.

    Fantastic evening on Friday night for dinner, the carrot and goat biryani were my two favourite dishes of the evening.
