I wasn't sure what to expect but throughly enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent and made you realise how reliant we are on our eyes. Great food and service, try it you might be as pleasantly surprised as us.

Did not quite realise the dining is in complete darkness-the photos on tripadvisor were somewhat deceiving. The experience of losing your sight for the dinner was quite intimidating and daunting to say least. The evening was made special by our waiter whom provided service of...More

When I first told my partner about this, his reply was, 'isn't the same when there is no electricity? By surprise, he took me there for Valentine's day. It was a unique experience as we realise we depend a lot on our sight to know...More

Imagine eating your dinner completely in the dark. It really makes you appreciate the food, the environment, the sounds, the smells and awakens your senses. I think this is a very good to excellent experience from check-in to check-out (which was the least memorable part)....More

It was a great dining experience to us, guided by our blind guide - Randa in absolute darkness! Don't worry about the darkness, once you are in the dining area, you will hear chatting and laughter all around.

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