Description
Think of modern society and images of shining cities and glowing screens come to mind. Every facet of daily life depends on sight. How would your other senses react to dining in complete darkness? You will discover the stunning truth about how people tend to experience food with their eyes, rather than their mouths. Noir. Dining in the Dark offers dining in a pitch-black dining room where you will be guided and served by our team of 11 blind or visually impaired staffs who have been specially trained to assist and reassure sighted guests. Transfer your trust to these skilled guides as they lead you to experience a new way of sensing the environment around you. On offer are three mystery set menus - from the east, from the west and vegetarian, and surely our Chef and his team are able to cater for food allergies and dietary restrictions. This is not simply dining, but rather a uniquely mind-altering experience where smell, taste, touch and hearing unite to bring you a completely new journey of the senses! Last order at 21h30.
