An amazing experience! It will make your brain work - not only by guessing what you're eating, but also you're imagination is gonna go wild just trying to think of how the room you're seated in looks like. They have two menus - standard one and vegetarian one, both very delicious and Christmasy. Good deal online, so book ahead if... More

Visited this restaurant on our recent trip to KL, after seeing so many good reviews in trip advisor. Very unique experience. Nice food, great service and lot to explore in the dark. I will keep it as a surprise. A must try.

wanted to surprise my wife, so brought her to Dining in the Dark. most of the time, we see what we eat - hence we already know the taste of our food. however, dining in the dark gives a unique experience, for us to trust our sense of touch, smell, and taste, to identify what we are eating....

Heard quite a bit about this restaurant and decided to check it out. Went with quite high expectations but the experience was mediocre and would not really recommend it. Reception was luke warm with a couple of guessing games blind folded. Was then led to a table in a dark room by a friendly staff who was partially blind. Was... More

Who would have thought to have a chance to really dine in the dark, where your senses are forced to focus on your tastebuds? Food served are great, but i have hard time (fun time actually) trying to figure out what dishes were those. It was a very different experience! You should try it. Highly recommended.

One of the most unforgettable experience I had when it comes to dining. Must try! Got a good discount via Groupon, but still worth it even if u pay the full amount.
