“OPAH” is an expression you often hear at celebrations, and this is feeling and intense emotion. Often accompanied with dance and Greek music. Fitting, because this venue is perfect for celebrations or simply enjoying food with friends. No plate smashing here, just delicious food and great hospitality.
Opah is family run business serving Greek food in a yum cha style. Located on Gerrale St, Cronulla, it’s raised space allows seating inside or in the sun and a lovely view of Cronulla beach. It is a large venue with both a seated dining space and also room for cocktail parties. It would be great for an event as they cater to parties.
At Opah you can order the $45 all you can eat yum cha which is great value for money. But you can order off the ala carte menu if that pleases you. Yum cha is half the price for children. The restaurant is fully licensed but you can BYO wine for your yum cha. The cocktails were very nice, perfect to sip on while taking in the beach vibe.
We were very impressed with the food and service at Opah. The staff were friendly and welcoming. All the dishes we had was well seasoned and we didn’t need to add salt or pepper or any other condiment.
Presentation wise/plating, we felt that the little details of garnish on each dish went a long way and was very appealing to the eye. It made us excited to eat it. The calamari was a stand out and was delicious as it wasn’t full of batter like most places and was quite light. The Tiropites had a nice balance of flavours with the saltiness from the cheese and the sweetness from the honey and the aroma and slightly minty flavour from the thyme.
The restaurant had a good atmosphere and was quite busy. We also liked the fact that the Yum Cha menu is a great way to try all the dishes and if the serving is not enough, you can always ask for more as it’s all you can eat! We were advised that not everyone understands the concept and some people complained that the serving size was too small but the reality is that you can ask for more as it’s all you can eat.
