A must try experience

My brother bought me a gift card on my birthday for a dinner at NOX from www.giftano.com and I’m so glad he did. It was truly an amazing experience and both the food and the service was really good! You start the experience in the lounge where the staff explains what’s gonna happen and ask you to put your phones and other things inside lockers to make sure you don’t have anything that gives away light in the pitch black dining room. The dinner consists of 12 different dishes with very different flavors and textures. Blind waiters serve the food and they were absolutely fantastic taking very good care of us in the dark. After the meal you get to guess the different dishes and it was really tough when you could not rely on your eyes. I strongly recommend everybody to try NOX, you will have a wonderful time dining there!

This is exactly what it looks like in the dining room.

Unusual and adventurous

I was surprised at the ways in which the darkness affected the eating experience.

I'll be taking some of our future visitors along. Great for special occasions involving couples, good friends, or to reconnect with close family.

Amazing experience and amazing food

I visited Nox a few weekends back (full review with limited [!!] photos here: http://www.thedarksmile.com/blog/review-of-nox-dine-in-the-dark-269-beach-road-singapore) - dining in the dark really is a unique experience, it does make you focus on the flavours far more (not that you need to as the food is sensational all by itself), and it really is something I recommend people try for themselves. It is as much about the experience as about the food.

3 courses of 4 small dishes each, all of them good to great.  Friendly staff, and impressive service from the blind/partially-sighted waiting staff.  Nox wholeheartedly deserves its 100% recommendation on HGW.  The place is a bit 'hip' for my tastes, but it won me over quite easily in the end!

Interesting Dining Concept

Fantastic dinner with zero vision but awesome tasting on my boyfriend's birthday. Strongly recommend this venue for special occasion.

Must-try!

If you'd like to surprise someone with a special meal this is a good choice. The food was delicious, attentive service, and of course, the whole experience of dining in the pitch black darkness just made the whole dinner so special and memorable. Expect lots of giggling! I left with a deeper understanding of how life is like for the visually impaired who live among us, and with a great sense of respect for my server Mr. Halimi.
