At NOX – Dine In The Dark, we invite you to plunge into an intriguing new world of mystery and sensation you have never experienced before, and join us on a culinary journey through taste, smell, touch and sound, in total darkness. Seated in our pitch-black dining room, you will be guided and served by blind or visually impaired individuals that have been specially trained to offer guidance and reassurance to sighted guests. It is truly a rich human experience when the roles are reversed and the blind become your eyes, opening your mind to a deeper consciousness. Also, discover our exquisite menu crafted from the finest ingredients by our Chef de Cuisine and his team, and enjoy our fine wine selection and unique signature cocktails customized for each individual's palate. NOX - Dine in the Dark is definitely more than just dining, it is a unique mind-altering sensory experience! Experience this new European dining trend first-hand and 'see' it for yourself!

The food is great and you will get to explore many different dishes at this restaurant. The highlight is however the service by the blind waiters in the dark dining room. Even though it's pith black they provide probably the best service there is in Singapore. Will be back soon again.

Dining at Nox is not for those seeking a simple fast meal to fill the tummy. Ample time has to be given for one to be immersed in the experience and the initial waiting time before you are ushered to the dining room (we waited an extra half hour at the bar although we came on time). We were completely... More

This is and experience that's tough to explain but everybody should try this at least once in their lifetime. The surprise meal with 12 different dishes was so fun, trying to guess the food we were eating. Service from the visually impaired servers in the dining room was impeccable. Go "see" it for yourself.

My husband and I wanted to experience the dining in the dark concept and it was such a fun night! The staff were really nice and customer service was excellent. We especially loved our very friendly host, Hafiz. Moreover, the food was excellent!! All in all a worthwhile experience and a lovely way to spend a Friday night.

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
