We did everything your average traveler does when visiting Malaysia but this experience was by far the best!!! My wife and I are are very hard to please when it comes to dinning out but this restaurant gets 5 out of 5 stars...the food, the staff, the experience was just WOW!

An experience you won't forget. I don't give 5 stars easily, but it was not only the most memorable dining experience I've ever had, but also the food is very good with unique recipes.

Simply it was an amazing experience. Did not expect it to go so well. Food is very good, but the important part is the experience inside the dark, trying to guess the food we eat. without knowing what it was! The blind guides were amazing. I will try again.

It seems like this place would be a great place for a first date(especially if you're ugly :P) They do a good job of guiding you through the experience and it's setup in a way that allows you to ease in. The servers are blind themselves so you'll be hearing a lot of clicking and snapping as they navigate. It's... More

Dining in the dark ..its pitch black. First I was bit scared, then I started enjoying it. Really good reception by hostess, kind and very informative guides, awesome food, get to taste so many varieties. Really a good and memorable experience. They said that the menu is changing by end of November, I am planning to bring my family.
