Went there for my son’s 10th birthday. It was fun, it was different, it’s worth at least a once in a lifetime visit!

Went here, and was a bit apprehensive. My worries were put at ease by the host and the waiter. What a great meal, the darkness just made it all the more special. Recommend this for a special meal.

The restaurant is pitch black and you would not be able to see anything. Most of the wait staff are visually impaired and you experience the dining experience from their 'view'. Food is good and the experience even better. Helps you block out all other...More

Hi, we do not have basement parking. You can park at Hotel Soleil (located opposite our restaurant). The rate would be RM8.
