681 Excellent Reviews.

The top reviewed restaurant on TripAdvisor is located in District 1, and it is called “Noir.”. It is exactly what you are thinking: a restaurant in the dark. Guests are served by a team of 11 blind or visually impaired people specifically trained to help and assist the guests. The restaurant is for those who want to actually explore fine-dine with their mouths rather than their eyes. There 3 set of mysterious menus, serving food from international and local dishes, sometimes mixed together. Dining at Noir. is an experience that is both mind-altering and unique.
