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!

Extreme impressed with overall foods served. Delicious but a little pricey, however worth of trying if you had never experienced dining in the total darkness! Besides the food, also a good experience to train u listen to the instructions given carefully!

My wife and I enjoyed the 5 courses served overall. Her only remark is that the desserts could be better. Service was excellent, and the experience something everyone should try once.

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.
