Opium Sushi Bar opened last year and when I went the first time I was so happy that there was finally a real Sushi bar in Tirana. I really like sushi but until a couple of years ago there was not such a big hype about it and the few bars that offered sushi had their own adapted versions for the market.
At Opium, sushi, sashimi and all the other items in the menu are prepared with the right high quality ingredients and so well presented. Because the restaurant imports part of the ingredients from abroad, there are some specials that you can only find there, like steamed edamame with salt flakes or the Wakame salad, (two of my favorites). The desserts are also a great surprise, even though not Japanese, but very sophisticated and perfectly executed.
I also really like the interior design of the Opium Sushi Bar because is it very simple but with a nice modern Asian touch.
