We had a wonderful experience at NOX. It was my sister's 21st birthday and I wanted to give her something precious that she would remember and we would talk about years later. This dinner in dark is the perfect birthday gift. I think our story was funny as we arrived way early to the restaurant. One is because I need... More

It's my first time there with my husband. And I was quite worried I might freak out in the darkness. However our host Halimi is very friendly and puts the diners at ease. It also helps that there's soothing music in the dark dining room. And tasting food without seeing them - it's pretty challenging. Your expectations color your taste.... More

You may not be receptive to the idea of eating in pitch dark, not knowing what goes into your mouth. But everything was absolutely wonderful. Staff service was great too! Dining area was pitch dark, you can only rely on the 4 other senses to complete the 3 course dinner. The food was simply fantastic. Cocktails are good too. If... More

Booked a table for 2 to celebrate my partner's birthday, pretty amazing experience. As we are both chefs, we had fun listing out all the ingredients and preparation method. Pre dinner drink was quite a disappointment though, bartender spilling here and there as I watch him making my cocktail. Overall good experience, I will be back for more.

We decided to celebrate my birthday at Nox and it was an absolutely delightful experience. We started with a briefing as to how the dining process will be. The walk in the dark towards our table was a real challenge for me and it was amazing how a visually impaired host led us safely to it. The food was amazing... More

It's really a unique experience, we went to give it a try, and the service is really good. When we first enter, we were seated in the lounge area and were given a little explanation on whats gonna happen inside the dark room and ask if we had any food allergy. Next we ordered our drinks, and we went ahead... More

We decided to visit NOX as we wanted to try something different on my birthday and the reviews here really built up our expectations. While making the reservations, my husband mentioned about our dietary restrictions - I am a vegetarian, my husband is not but he is allergic to specific seafood and mentioned that he is okay with eggs/chicken/fish etc....
