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!

Our experience at NOX was so exceptional that it cannot be compared to any other dining experience. I had a memorable time conversing and eating with my family. The food was made to highest standards. Each course consists of four miniature dishes, so look forward to being blown by the subtle flavours of these impeccably made dishes. The staff were very welcoming and assuring, which is important because the first few minutes of being in absolute darkness can be disorienting. I liked that they were patient as they guided us through the experience. I would highly recommend everyone to eat here because it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Celebrated my anniversary with my girlfriend here. The concept is quite novel and the service provided by the staff are superb. Firstly, we were greeted warmly by the lobby service staff. They were very polite and helpful ! to ensure a full experience, I would recommend to get a drink ( especially still/sparking water) as they come in a bottle. You had to help your partner to fill her cup in the dark! The staff at the second floor is really helpful as they guided us to our seats. Food is also of freshest quality despite not knowing what exactly we are consuming, it was fun when my girlfriend and I attempt to guess what exactly it was. I would definitely recommend it to others! Do note to make a reservation before heading down(it is hassle-free) so as to avoid disappointment as it seems quite crowded during weekends.

We went to Nox as a family and enjoyed the food and experience. My daughter also dined in the dark in a restaurant in Zurich and she said the food was much better at NOX.
