The Overview

Designed to heighten the sensual experience of eating (and perhaps to humble the complacent diner), dine-in-the-dark nights started in Europe in the late 90s and have since spread to the US and Asian cities such as Hong Kong and Bangkok, where the Pullman hotel has organized such evenings annually. Earlier in 2012, however, DID — Dine in the Dark – became Asia's first permanent restaurant to serve customers entirely in the dark. Located on the second floor of The Ascott Hotel, in Bangkok's busy business district, the restaurant is staffed by the visually impaired who lead you to your table, serve you a surprise three-course meal (choice of meat, seafood or vegetarian) comprised of Thai and international dishes and even guide you when you lose your way around your plate. There are two seatings every night—6:30-8:30 pm and 8:30-11pm. Don't forget to look out for sample plates of what you ate on our way out. They also have a sister restaurant in Phnom Penh.
