Dine in the Dark
Sensorial Experience in Siem Reap
Dine in the Dark is exactly what is says, you dine in the dark! You visual senses have been completely removed and you will eat you meal blind. We provide fine dining in Siem Reap with a twist, your meal will be served in pitch black surroundings. Experience a traditional Khmer menu without seeing it which will heighten your non-visual senses to enjoy the food even more.
Social Enterprise in Siem Reap
All our waiters and waitresses are known as “guide” because they do much more than simply bring your meals. They will guide you to your table, guide you through the meal and ensure that you have a great time.
They really know how to dine in the dark because they have practiced it themselves many times. All our guides are blind.
We are not an NGO, but we are a business with a strong social purpose and we are committed to all our visually impaired team. We recruit and train all our guides to be successful in the service industry. Dine in the dark provides a sustainable employment helping disadvantaged Cambodian people discover their exceptional skills and ability to perform service jobs.

Top Siem Reap Experience
Dine in the Dark first opened its doors in Bangkok. The idea took off and quickly spread to Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh. Now, we are proud to bring you this unique culinary experience to the doorstep of Angkor Wat.
This amazing project provides guests with a sensorial experience like no other in Siem Reap. At the same time, we aim to help local Cambodian people by providing sustainable employment opportunities.
Enjoy a spectacular fine dining experience with a twist – eat your meal completely in the dark. We won’t even tell you what’s on the menu. Don’t worry! Our aim isn’t to trick you into eating insects, instead we want to set your non-visual senses alight and give you a night to remember forever.
You might not be able to see what you’re eating, but you’ll make lifelong memories about this unique culinary experience.

Dine in the Dark
Now you can experience the full taste of your food by omitting the visual sense! When dining with us, you can’t see your food. You have to rely on your taste buds to guide you through the experience. It’s a truly unique way to enjoy a fine dining meal in Siem Reap.
We are a socially responsible employer and our guides have been well trained in the service industry. We have taken our guides from local communities and provided them with sustainable employment.
There’s one thing that our guides can do better and that is to see in the dark! Our guides are blind and live with this affliction every day. They have developed their other senses to help them survive and they can use these skills to ensure that our guests have a great dining experience.
