I am a "quality" food freak and I was looking forward to trying this place. Finally got there! We chose the Asian menu. I have no pics to post this time (of course :D), but I suggest that you do not even open their site for pics actually.. Just book and go and enjoy yourselves. I won't spoil anything, you... More

We dined here after reading reviews as it sounded like fun and with a good dining experience. We were not disappointed. First of all, the concept is explained to you and you're given a blindfold to wear and asked to put different shaped objects into a wooden board, working purely by touch. The idea is to try and give an... More

A unique and wonderful experience - one not to be missed if you enjoy great dining. We loved it and if you are in HCMC recommend you put it on your 'must do' list (along with Cu Chi Tunnels, but that's another review).

This evening was simply phenomenal. Firstly, the staff are warm, friendly, accommodating and attentive. I really got the sense that everyone was happy to work there. And the owner was equally caring, talking to us after the meal and wanting to make sure that we had enjoyed ourselves. Secondly, the food was exquisite. The only feeling that comes to mind... More

Was unsure about this concept of eating in the dark but I am pleased to say it was a fantastic experience. The staff were excellent from start to finish. We started off with a welcome drink and a couple of games with a blindfold on to work on the hand co-ordination. We then choose which menu we would like we... More

We had an amazing evening there, what a mind blowing experience!!! Won't add anything more because don't want to spoil the fun.. But we understand why it is has become a highlight in HCMC. You really feel your 4/5 senses heighten and the blind waiters are really kind and helpful. By the way this is run by an independant owner... More

I wish I could experience it again with a different menu and will be sure to on return visits to... More

My wife & I celebrated both Valentine’s Day and our 30 Wedding anniversary at Noir recently. It was one of the most memorable evenings ever. Food was delicious and it was special as many of the staff that served us are either visually or vocally impaired. Noir did a fantastic job in getting work for them and the service level... More

I love this place, dinning here was almost like an adventure! We had the Western course and the food was delicious. The visually impaired waiters provided excellent service. I would come back again, though I'm not sure it will be as interesting as the first time.

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!
