Decided on Opium as we were craving Asian food and walking distance to/from our apartment. Appreciated they were playing different Olympic events on TV that we could watch. Connected to a nice hotel with a great selection of food and wine. Service was great,spoke English and wifi.

Oriental jewel in Ipanema, conveniently located and conected with a fine hotel, with a nice choice of good oriental and local flavors. With a chiken soup that restored my digestive health I can do no more than tell this is a quiet, romantic and quality restorant in the area.
