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!
A very unique dinning experience that one has to try out at least once. Food was great and service was excellent by our server. When the sense of sight is not available, you have to rely heavily on your sense of smell and taste to guess what you are eating throughout the 3-course dinner. Highly recommend, to get the pairing drinks to go with the meal.
It’s definitely a must try experience for everyone. The three course set menu was full of surprises - me and my partner enjoyed using our other senses to enjoy this dine in the dark amazements.
This is our 3rd or 4th time and this time with Japanese expat friends. All of us had such a good time and as always, the food, service is impeccable. It’s an amazing experience, food quality, dish preparation, culinary experience and taste is simply beyond amazing! We love guessing the food at the end of the entire meal and are always delighted when we see the image of the food and finding out what we ate! We will be back again in December with out of town family members!
