About NOX – Dine in the Dark

We were made in the dark, and when we die we enter darkness once again. Yet, in our lives – at least those who are sighted – vision is primary among our many senses. We read a menu, we see what we eat… but how adept is your sense of smell, your sense of taste, even your sense of touch, at apprehending what it is that’s made it to your plate, your mouth? NOX offers its unique Dine In The Dark experience to exercise tastebuds atrophied from years of subordination to the eyes, welcoming diners to its restaurant along Bugis’ Beach Road only to seat them in pitch darkness. There, a team of blind and visually-impaired staff guide guests through a superb prix fixe menu that’s kept a secret so the true taste test, as it were, can have its day in court – but let’s just say it leans towards exquisite French and European cuisine matched with wines and signature cocktails tailored to each diners’ palate. Singapore has certainly never seen a restaurant concept such as this!

This was my 3rd visit to NOX. Excellent service and great food with a fun quiz after the meal. We nailed the appetizers and the mains but had trouble identifying the desserts. Something to work on until the next visit. qe had a blast!

Exceptional as always! This time we came back with our in laws and while they had reservations at first, it quickly became quite fun! Love coming here and being surprised each time with different food.

This is a strange dinner. Because you have completely different feeling: food tasted strange and we left some because of a strange taste (after the dinner we were shown beautiful foods on the photo, I hope I failed to feel beautiful taste because of"no image", but not because the food was not great). Dinner for 2 with wine pairing and coffees costs 300S$ - you pay for the experience, not for taste. I would not recommend it for romantic date or dining with kids for sure. It is hard for me to choise a fair rate for this place: you go there for experience and for supporting blind people employment. I would rate: experience- interesting; food - not a big deal; price- overpriced.

It was a very unique experience, eating in complete darkness and just trusting your host and senses. I was surprised by how pitch black and dark the dining area was. Took a moment to gather yourself when seated and feel the table around you. The hosts were all lovely and friendly, very informative and kind. We paired our meal with the cocktail set which was also very delicious. You can request for the drinks to be less sweet if you want too. Overall, great experience! You should try it at least once in your life. :)

Amazing front table service, wicked cocktails to start with - try the house special by Thomas Sato, the two face of Sato and be sure to pay your compliments to the Head Bartender. Excellent cocktail! Friendly and attentive server, Rahmat who is visually handicapped and to top off the cake - delicious mind blowing food to be had in the dark with no interruptions of phones or cameras etc etc. We will be back!!

Get ready to have you sense of sight taken away. You won't need it at this place but that's a good thing! It heightens your sense of taste and you can purely enjoy the food and company! The place was great, the ambience was great, the staff was great. Would've preferred it to be slightly cheaper but if it's the experience that you're looking for, then this is the one place to get it. And the good thing is, no one can see you eating like a slob!

even though we couldn't see (at all!) in the dark, we knew it was really crowded due to the noise level around us. it wasn't really conducive for our anniversary date. Secondly, because of the dark, we had to be really wary about where we place our stuff. we unfortunately spilled the drink but the mess wasn't cleaned up, so we dined while the drink was dripping off the table. i'm still giving this a 4 because of the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A truly "blind" experience. Went there not knowing what to expect but the entire experience blew me away. The food was fantastic and not knowing what we were eating just enhanced our taste buds to try to pick up the nuances. A pity was the wine pairing because we felt it was a little rushed and we were unable to drink the wine slowly.
