Sitting in a completely dark room, with no people watching or technology to distract you (all personal belongings are locked away downstairs), you’ll find that you actually talk. Be it your first or thirtieth Valentine’s Day together, NOX connects you like no other restaurant can.
The food is served in little easy-to-manage bowls and the menu changes every few weeks based on seasonality and availability. Four different samples are served for entrée, main and dessert (the three-course menu is $88 per person) and you can choose to match each course with wine, cocktails or mocktails (pairings start from $30).
As there are no menus to pore over and the kitchen is making the same dishes for everyone in the restaurant (dietary requirements are also catered for), the service is quick and efficient. Adding to the fun factor is debating with your date over what you think you’re eating. And, if you really like it, feel free to lick the bowl – after all, no one can see!
