NOX – Dine in the Dark
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!Go to NOX – Dine in the Dark Page
Was a fun experience. Good place to have celebration with friends for birthday. Definitely gonna return for another visit. Recommended place and food was good!
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.
extremely good and worthwhile experience for my friend and I. really recommended for everyone out there. a very eye opening experience to dine in a pitch black place.
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!!
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.
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.
It was a unique experience, combined with scary and fun..didn't expect to dine in complete darkness. For a picky in food person like me, i came here for the experience. Out of the twelve small dishes, and three pairing mocktail, i like none. My partner was okay with it so its really up to individual. I headed on to eat a local food after this as i skipped the odd taste dish after one mouthful. Bill was high.
This is a place you must try at least once . Food is good . As you don't see the visual , it's actually gourmet food . Thou I thought the cocktail pairing was weak . A Ted too sweet for me . So yes do go . Friendly staff both on ground and 2nd floor .
