After a simple sensory game with blindfolds in the lobby, you are led into a pitch black restaurant by one of the visually impaired waiters. You are given a generous tasting menu for every course and you are not told what exactly you are eating....More

Very satisfied on food and comfort atmosphere. I thought I will feed into my nose initially but smooth progress in tasting every course. Good opportunity to test your tongue sensitivity!

Yes, 100% dark. No, you can't see your companions. You will have fun all trying to figure out what you are eating. We were totally off on certain things! It made us aware of how much we rely on our sight.

Hi, we do not have basement parking. You can park at Hotel Soleil (located opposite our restaurant). The rate would be RM8.
