Travelling through space, time and across continents, Opheem is the first solo project for the former head chef of Lasan. Aktar Islam has taken over the building once occupied by M-Club to create a restaurant that is inspired by the progressive cooking of chefs attached to historical Indian royal courts.

The renowned chef is taking inspiration from as far back as the 13th century, looking at the food that was cooked for mughals and maharajas. The menu will also be inspired by various regions in India and will make use of seasonal produce from the UK. Spanning nearly 800 years, the style of Indian cuisine will also cover the period of British rule - expect completely unique dishes such as allepy (Cornish turbot, wilted greens, tempered Keralan coconut milk and raw mango).

Set on Summer Row, the restaurant will feature modern and suave interiors, from amazing light features through to a soft grey colour scheme. Drinks wise, wine flights will take your dining experience to the next level.
