Opium KL l 乌香院 @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Notable as the city’s most happening boulevard, the streets of Changkat Bukit Bintang is often associated with endless nightclubs, cocktails bars and pubs. Here at the rowdy drinking joints, booze are often the centrepiece and dishes second. Well that is what we thought before we bumped into Opium KL, a new establishment of Werner's Group (after El Cerdo, The Whisky Bar, The Steakhouse and Dining in the Dark KL) which serves a diverse selection of unique cocktails and surprisingly alluring Asian Oriental delights b^^d

Officially opened for business just few months back (July 2014) the retro-Shanghai theme restaurant has indeed showcase a wonderful oriental touch in its decoration and design. For first time customers, expect some mesmerising experience while enjoying a contemporary creative menu under the cosy shanghainese ambiance ;)
