My husband and I had a wonderful host, Joshua, who provided an excellent service which is also true for the rest of the staff.
The food is delicious: there is a lot of variety and despite all my food allergies I had a wonderful meal. José, the restaurant manager, is very patient - we had had to postpone our dinner on very short notice and it was no problem at all. I am so glad that we finally made it. We will be back :)

Unfortunately there are no pictures for this review as there are no phones no watches or any other electronic devices are allowed to be carried away. I am from mumbai so this was like a different experience for me. As we didn’t have this concept anywhere in India to my knowledge. The staff is so friendly and corporative. And this is the only place that I’ve travelled of India where an non Indian restaurant knows Jain food. As my brother is a pure Jain person. He panicked a little as there is no light and you can’t see what you are eating. But after the dinner he realised that it was all pure Jain as his expectation and we both were surprised with that. We would recommend people to try this. As it was one of the best experiences dinner for both of me.

Hi shivangz2017,

Thank you so much for the great review!

It really means a lot to us that you were both able to have a fantastic time and that your brother was able to enjoy a pure Jain vegetarian meal. We can cater for most dietary requirements and have 5 different menu options available as we want our guests to enjoy the full NOX experience and be able to enjoy their meal in comfort.

Thank you very much for the recommendation as we really appreciate the support.

Hope to have you back again when your in Singapore next. Once again thank you for the review and hope you have a great week ahead.

Regards,

Jose.

The concept of dining in the dark is one that evokes of lots of reflection. And the experience of it even more so. The food was good, but not as fantastic (in my view) as some of the reviewers have my suggested. Service was good... and more importantly different. I think I walked away not really remembering the food, but instead remembering the overall experience, including my interaction with the waiter (Joshua).

It is an amazing experience to eat in the dark while unable to see anything and no lights and no phone allow.

It is a great place to bond with others like coworkers.

We still able to survive without phone during dinner.

Went with family using their father's day promotion. From the welcome drink and to the end of dinner coffee/tea, service was good. we entered the door leading to the 2nd level and our server introduced himself and led us up the dimmly lit stairway and slowly we inched up the stairs slowly getting used to the pitch darkness. So no worries about not adjusting as we were given instructions as to where to sit and what to do. The whole experience was wonderful and the food was surprisingly very tasty and interesting. We had a good time laughing and having fun tasting and guessing and reaching out in the darkness. A great experience. At the end of the meal we went down to the hound level for our coffee and tea and we were then revealed in pictures the food we ate and was surprised how our taste buds can trick us and we had fun laughing at ourselves. Good service, good fun, good food.
