It was a great dining experience, very interesting indeed. dining in the dark enables you to open up your senses and really taste every single ingredient that you think is present in the dish. It enhances your sense of taste and it is fun trying to guess the ingredient in the dishes with your dining partner. We had a fun... More

Went with my date and we had the best and most private dining experience ever. It was so fun and engaging guessing what we were eating. And each dish was excellent. 12 different things to tantalise your taste buds. Well worth the amount we paid. Everything was perfect. the service, attention to detail, the server, the after dinner experience (... More

Had a wonderful evening with my family at Nox. Everything, from the friendly staff, special server, tasty food were made all the more memorable by the unique ambience. A bit pricey, but definitely worth experiencing it at least once.

This is truly a unique dining experience. I have to say that I didn't love every dish but the experience more than made up for that. All of the waiters are legally blind and you will be amazed at how they are able to serve your food/wine/drinks in complete darkness. The service was excellent. Eating in the darkness definitely allows... More

Hi Charles B, We are glad to hear you enjoyed the NOX experience and that the service was excellent. The mystery menu is definitely a good suprise and hard to guess as sometimes Chef Desmond is a bit naughty and tricky serving many different textures and flavours in the same dish, Definitely a unique experience. Thank you for the high... More

We went along for a date night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Despite a few jokes from my husband about the irony of spending our anniversary in a restaurant where we cannot see each other we were both looking forward to trying a new experience. We had heard about Nox a few times but this was our first visit. I... More

The dining experience began with a phone call in the afternoon of the meal to check on allergies as well as a request to be at least 5 minutes earlier than the booking time for a pre-dinner "briefing". We arrived about 15 minutes early and were sat down at the large litted reception cum bar on the ground floor where... More

We have set dinner for two together with one glass of Argentina red wine and Forest berries mocktail. Very impressed about the whole experience. The food tasted really good and portion is just nice. It might be a little bit pricey but the ingredients are really premium standard so I would say it worth the price. Service is excellent, everyone... More

I first stumbled upon the "dining in the dark" concept when I watched the movie About Time, where the two lead characters first meet on a blind date ( quite literally ) in a London based restaurant featuring the same dining model as the Nox. I was both intrigued and amazed by the idea of such an innovative and different... More

What a wild experience! First, you sit in the lounge area where you receive an amuse-bouche (the last course you get to see) and can order cocktails. Then, you are taken up into the dining room, where you are served the courses. The waiters are absolutely amazing, having the ability to serve the food and later clean up the table... More

Had a really good experience and we also enjoyed the food. Our fave were the dessert! But it's quite pricey so for sure cannot go often. But highly recommended to at least try once!

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
