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.
