The service staff welcomed us into the lounge and gave us a drink menu to choose upon. The moment I sat down, the plushy sofa seat reminds me of Gold Class Cinema lounge, quite similar in a sense. Servers explained there is no food menu to choose from, rather there is a secret menu at $88++ per pax that consists of 12 dishes spreaded into 3 courses, appetizers, mains and desserts. Restaurant menu will be change every 6 - 8 weeks and should you have any dietary preference, e.g. vegetarian, please highlight to them.
All in all, it was a good 1.5 hours session of experiencing the life of a visually impact human, coping with darkness in their moves. We took our 5 senses daily for granted and being in such environment really gave us a good reminder of how lucky we are to be able to see, hear, touch, taste and feel. Not only that, such dining concept keeps us away from the usual social media / electronics distraction we had during our meals with our friends / partners / families. The only disadvantage here I could ever think of is perhaps not to bring someone here for a first date where you cannot see each other. Ha! We spent about $120 including drinks per pax and reservation is recommended.
Went for a birthday celebration.
An interesting experience with enhanced taste buds in exchange of sight.
The meal started off with an appetizer the "Amuse bouche" served was the only thing we could see and it tasted great!
We were politely asked to keep our bags and mobile in the lockers provided and was escorted upstairs. We were informed where the food was placed and in a manner that we were still able to eat at ease. I will come back again. Maybe this time less fearful of the dark.
As educated Foodies my wife and I have always been fascinated by the concept of dining with heightened senses through not being able to see what you are eating. The lead couple in the very good movie 'Once Again' met in a blackened restaurant. We attended Nox last night for my birthday, expecting to have a laugh and come out covered in food and wine. We absolutely loved it, and didnt drop a single morsel... The food, delivered to you in absolutely total darkness by fully blind waiter, was superb. Four tasting bowls per course, for three courses. The wine matched to the food was exquisite. The total bill came to $310, including food and matched glass of wine. At this price we wont be back regularly, but are already planning our next event with friends.
