We went as a family, two teenagers aged 14 and 18. I'm not sure that I have much different to say than most of the other reviews. You choose what you want to eat prior to going into the restaurant. We had the prawns, tenderloin (2) and my son decided to go with the "surprise" main. After you have placed... More

The server was lovely and the atmosphere was fun. But that bring said the food was awful. I had the chicken and my partner had the beef tenderloin. Both dishes were very very dry and already chopped up which probably added to the dryness. The cake which was dessert was very dry and tasted like stale Safeway cake. We ordered... More

If nothing else, it was a crazy experience. First off, I cannot express enough at how dark it was. We are talking no light at all. You enter, grab onto your server and let him guide you to your table. I thought my eyes would adjust to the point where I would see shadows moving around. Definitely didn't happen. Pitch... More

A friend took me to this unique place. It made for an interesting and unusually intimate experience. If you don't like sensory deprivation then I don't recommend it, however if you want to try something really different, then why not. The darkness took time to mentally adjust to, even if my eyes never did. The food was very average and... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 times so far and enjoyed each visit. I also bought a Groupon for a friend and she enjoyed it. This is a fun place that heightens your senses and creates a thought-provoking experience. Phone in and reserve instead of trusting the website booking system which says there are no reservations available. The food... More

If you even Google this restaurant, then you are aware that it is run and served by visually impaired people, and that the whole experience is in darkness, and I mean, really full pitch black darkness. From the moment you walk in, the feeling of excitement and anxiousness take over, until you and your partner start getting more comfortable. There... More

We surprised our friends by taking them here and they were thrilled. One thought they would be a bit nervous if we had told her in advance so it was a good choice for us to make it a surprise. 3 of us choose the surprise 3 course meal and the main course was delicious, yet very surprising. We all... More

My daughter took me here for my birthday. It was definitely a unique experience. Rose (our waitress) was awesome. The surprise 1st entry was good, we almost guessed everything. My daughter ordered the stuffed chicken breast, it was decent. My prawns was OK as well. The surprise lychee ice cream for dessert was a little too sweet. Everyone at the... More

I went here with some work friends, and we weren't really sure what to expect. Fortunately, it was a really positive experience and we all enjoyed ourselves. You start by ordering the food and drinks outside then, once you've done that, you meet your server for the evening. Hint: remember your server's name as you are going to need this... More

We didn't know what to expect so we were 'in the dark' both figuratively and literally. After being led to our table a la conga line, we were like fish out of water! Not being able to see..anything..was so bizarre! Just feeling around and getting accustomed to our own little dark environment was unnerving at first. Our waiter Albert by... More
