I went to Dine in the Dark after visiting Dialogue in the Dark. It was also the nice experience having dinner without seeing anything including food and your table-mates. One of my friend started to use his hands rather than spoon & fork as we felt like we're losing skill to use spoon & fork. Food was tasty but we... More

It is the kind of place you go for novelty and curiosity. The food was OK, the staff tryng to do their best to convince you that it is an " out of this world" experience. A few days later saw in Bangkok the same restaurant "Dining in Darkness" with Thai food, but my curiosity had gone forever

A strange experience in a nice way.. Entering in the restaurant completely blind as it's very pitch black inside, the staff will lead you to your table. Being in the dark and unable to see anything, I felt I appreciate more of the taste and the texture of the food.. Nice food, nice music and great service.. and the staffs... More

If possible try and do this experience somewhere other than here. I'd done this previously in Berlin and found it one of the most enriching and amazing experiences ever, the food was fantastic. Unfortunately the one in Bangkok just doesn't come anywhere near that. The food was pretty bad, we hardly ate any of it and had to go out... More

I went here for my girlfriend's birthday and enjoyed it thoroughly. The concept allows blind people to have good jobs and at the same time it allows you to feel what its like to be blind. Theres absolutely no light and the menu is a surprise. It was a lot of fun trying to figure out what you are eating... More

I had already tried the concept before in Europe and was bit sceptic at the beginning. But once I entered the restaurant and was seated, I immediately felt very comfortable and well. The restaurant has a very unique atmosphere which differs from other dark restaurants. There is music, delicious food, nice waiters and everyone in the rooms seems to enjoy... More

I would recommend this to ones who lean towards an experience dinner than a value meal. There were 3 choices for each course (included veg option) which comes around to 1200 THB per person. I think this place is a little overpriced but worth the experience. Waiter/waitress are all blind and It is a good support for these unfortunate ones.... More
