Why the heck would you eat in the dark? Well, this concept was created to allow regular folk to experience what it is like being visually impaired. As the roles reverse and diners are guided by blind or visually impaired staff, it allows them to empathise and gain more respect for the blind.
Children above 6 years old can also join in the experience. Just take note that they will be charged at the normal adult price and served the same 3 courses.
Date and time: 12 May 2019. Lunch from 11.30 am to 3 pm, dinner opens at 6 pm.
