I surprised my boyfriend for this dinner and fortunately I didn't disappointment him because he liked it. In my opinion, this is a great place for a birthday, anniversary, or an ordinary date night. You can't bring your phone inside. We were assisted by visually...impaired (shout out to Yus) because the dinner is about dinning literally in the dark and you will experience how is it like to be visually impaired and apreciate what you are eating. They had a fun game for us before we began the official dinner to prepare us and then we went inside. There were 4 parts of the dinner 1. Appetizers 2. Soup 3. Main Course 4. Desserts It will be a bit pricey for some but it's definitely worth the experience. Memories are priceless. You will appreciate every second of it, your partner or families and the foods itself.More

You can request for halal, which is what we did. The meat is already halal, and they don't serve pork there. But the request will ensure that there is no alcohol in the preparation as well.
