OPA is an upscale authentic Greek concept offering traditional dishes coupled with charming interiors and friendly ambiance. OPA promises a multi-sensory traditional Greek experience to its patrons, from the Zorba dance to smashing plates, to Mediterranean inspired music and various entertainment. The story of OPA began a while ago on a small island in Greece in a quaint, charming kitchen, where a gentleman named Thassos spent years perfecting his favourite Greek dishes, sharing the rich and delicious flavours with his friends and family.
When his son Alexandros relocated to Dubai, Thassos eagerly came to visit. As he explored the vibrant city, he felt that Greek food was not so easy to find. It was then, that Thassos decided that he needed to share the rich history and flavoursome cuisine of Greece with the world. With his appetite for tender meats and zesty salads, the Zorba dance and smashing plates, Thassos excitedly began to build his traditional restaurant and memorable menu. Before long, with all the ingredients of Greek cuisine, culture and passion, OPA Dubai was born, and has since opened doors in Saint-Tropez, Mumbai, Bahrain and a pop-up in Riyadh.
