Dark Restaurant: Where one eats in total darkness

The first dark restaurant in Asia is officially opened on the 23 December 2006. This restaurant, located in Beijing, China, has its interior painted completely in black. Customers are greeted by a brightly lit entrance hall and will be escorted by waiters wearing night vision goggles into the pitch dark dining room to help them find their seats. Flashlights, mobile phones and even luminous watches are prohibited while in this area.


A restaurant with no cellphones? That's it -- I'm off to Beijing!

While I'm with you on the no cellphones bit, I just have to wonder how bad the cooking is there. Any restaurant that will only serve their food in the dark is suspect to me. :o)

I'm with jezzie on this one - I've been in restaurants with "ambient" lighting where the chicken looked and tasted suspect. Not that I thought the chicken was off - I just wondered what animal it REALLY came from. Ugh!
