I thoroughly enjoyed my first dinner experience at NOX, even though they've been around since 2013. It was an emotive dinner experience, as I went through excitement and anxiety, followed by plenty of mystery and fun as I got used to the darkness.

The loss of vision is said to heighten your sense of taste, though I'm not exactly sure of that, as it could be attributed to the use of stronger flavours and more premium ingredients. However, what is certain is that I heard every word my dining companions said over dinner (yes, no distractions due to mobile phones or checking out of cute people across the table!). Good place for bonding.

Even if you've been here before, you could consider checking it out again as they have a new Head Chef Shahrom, as well as locally inspired cocktails and mystery drink tasting experiences by Head Bartender Hussien.

Dinner menu changes monthly, but should always consist of 3 courses with 4 tasting dishes per course (4 appetizer, 4 mains, and 4 desserts). For an additional $50++ per person, you can opt for their newly launched mystery cocktail tasting experience featuring three libations; or $40++ for three wines to pair with the dinner.

Pictured is my pre-dinner cocktail - Raspberry Dance ($20++) with Vodka, Peach Liqueur, Egg White, Lemon and Raspberries. A sweet and refreshing drink to get you in the mood first :)

Have u ever tried dining in complete darkness? Now I can say I have. As one of your senses is made redundant, your taste buds senses become more sensitive.

The food we had was very flavourful, we had a fun time trying to identify the food we had at the end of dinner.

Very very expensive though

Great experience, but I may not return again due to the price of this place.

Total damage for two(with cocktail package):$340(after gst)

Apart from the fact that eating in complete darkness is a unique dining experience we recommend trying at least once in your life, NOX also supports and provides employment to visually impaired individuals, all of whom have been trained to guide and serve โ€” which they do with utmost professionalism! Like NOX aptly writes on its website, "it is a truly human experience when the roles are reversed and the blind become your eyes". The meal begins with a cocktail in the warmly lit romantic lounge (this place is perfect for a cheeky date night!), after which the prix fixe dinner ($88 per person) is a mystery menu consisting of 12 dishes set over three courses. Trust us โ€” it is perfectly okay to dig in with your hands. You can choose to add on wine pairing (from $30 for two glasses) and request for a vegetarian or vegan menu. Bring your sense of fun and adventure. Reservations highly recommended.

This def heightened my sense of hearing and sense of taste, was incredibly excited to guess what we put in our mouths. ๐Ÿด

We too had an amazing guide (Fabian) thanks for your patience and guidance! Very thankful for a place like NOX - giving a platform for the visually disabled and allowing us to also appreciate our eyes and not take it for granted โ˜บ๏ธ
Indeed an experience of a lifetime. โญ๏ธ

To eat without sight, was a major challenge for someone so visually oriented like me. However, taking away one sense had also elevated the other senses, and I managed to feel the textures and taste the flavours of the ingredients better. I also found better appreciation for smell, which was the first sensory tool I utilized before placing the dish in my mouth. We had a total of 12 dishes in a 3 course meal- 4 starters, 4 bite-sized mains and 4 desserts. A wide variety of ingredients were put into the 12 dishes, each exuding a largely different personality and flavour. Menu changes every month, so I can't quite share what I had yet, else I spoil the surprise. Nevertheless, expect quality ingredients in every dish.

One of the only photos I could take before entering complete darkness for my 3-course dinner. Had a great birthday dinner in there being served with good food and excellent service. Not gonna share too much or I would spoil the experience for you if you intend to go. But what I would say is it's definitely a unique and inspirational experience!
