Lovely food in such an unusual environment. A true delight for the senses! Staff are amazing, so friendly. Food very tasty. Interesting experience, trying to pick all the ingredients, sometimes not what you think!

Went twice and enjoyed it both times. Vegetarian options available and overall experience exciting somewhat. I would not call food gourmet though it is enjoyable, we also did not feel full after so supper at Jalan Ipoh nearby fixed that.

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.
