Absolutely incredible experience from start to finish.
Every course was amazing and even as a fussy eater I thoroughly enjoyed all of the food.
Our darkness expert, AK, was amazing too!
I couldn't recommend this more, it was a great way to spend our evening.

Looking for something a little different for your next date? Try eating in pitch black Like you wont see for an hour+ and have to navigate you entire meal blind! Give you a new appreciation for people with vision impairments while enjoying an excellent meal as well.Your senses are heightened and you're really aware of what you are in putting your mouth. Definitely an experience to remember!

Took my friends here to celebrate their engagement. We were all blown away by the amazing food served, but most of all, by the amazing service from the staff. The dining guides were visualised impaired which makes it even more touching and impressive. We were all curious to know more about the background stories of the staff. Definitely a place worth experiencing.

I came here on Christmas eve with my partner and we were both blown away by the concept of dining in the dark. From the moment we arrived to when we left the whole experience was great. My partner was a bit nervous initially but the staff were great and explained the concept and made him feel at ease.

It's a bit difficult to explain too much without spoiling it for those who have not experienced it!

The food was very nice...we had no idea what we were going to eat so it was good to try and taste the flavours and textures of each dish. We both love food and the quality was delicious.

Another great thing was actually having to make conversation without being distracted by other diners and also mobile phones.

I would definitely recommend this to everyone. We saw couples, friends and even families with children. Everyone looked delighted when the finished and it was great to hear their feedback especially afterwards when you are given a menu showing what you have eaten.

Great night! Thanks to all the staff at Dining in the Dark for a truly remarkable sensory experience.

This was an excellent experience from start to finish. I won't say anything about the food in detail as you will have to experience it yourself but you get to see the menu at the end and guess what you have eaten. Don't be afraid of the dark, everyone is very welcoming. Every sound, every movement, every taste, every breath is noticed. It is such an incredible experience! Please go and enjoy!
