Everyone should experience this once in their lives if only to have a renewed gratefulness for their sight. It really is pitch black, your eyes don't adjust to the darkness at all. The guides do a really good job of explaining where everything is on the table and which order dishes should be eaten in. The only slight problem was... More

We went with three other couples, and had a wonderful time. The staff were incredibly friendly, and are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements. The food was good, not absolutely amazing, but very tasty and we had fun trying to figure out what exactly we were eating. Terrific night out.

I brought my wife there on the day after Velentine's Day. Upon arrival, the ushers warmed us up by having us experienced first hand how it was like when you are in total darkness. Then, their waiter (most of them totally blind) brought us into the dining hall which is completely dark. He guided us safely to our table, chair,... More

Dated my wife for a meal with a difference. This place took a little bit of finding as it is situated at the 1st floor. Tons of bars and pubs at the bottom makes it a little bit harder to find. Look out for the hanging signage. And come early. All dinners are by appointment only. When you reach, they... More

It was a wonderful and totally new experience. Don't want to give any spoilers! but you gonna eat five star food in total darkness, without knowing what you are eating! And since nobody sees no table manners required! Try it with your friends! If you are looking for new experiences I promise you gonna like it!

After hearing so much about it we finally gave Dining in the dark, KL a try and we'd be happy to say that we will be checking it out again. Our night starts off with a welcome drink that comes with a fun challenge (I'd hate to spoil the surprise for you) and a little game to tease your senses... More
