Travel Experience

Dine in the Dark is a fine dining restaurant in which there are no lights inside. They offer you the chance to experience a variety of local and international surprise menus without seeing them, thereby heightening your non-visual senses in a playful and elegant way. All members of their service team are visually impaired and fluent in Thai and English. The restaurant offers you a unique opportunity to support their employment and discover their professional skills.

Responsibility

Dine in the Dark embeds a social purpose at the core of its business model: Raising awareness: Through a role-reversal by which the visually impaired are the guides in a pitch-dark environment, guests have a hands-on experience of visual impairment while discovering the professional skills of a talented and enthusiastic workforce. Empowerment: They build the confidence of the visually impaired and train them to take on a fast-paced front-of-the-house role to showcase their hospitality and language skills. Employment: They offer the visually impaired well-remunerated employment opportunities which are otherwise all too rare in Thailand.

Business Case

Dine in the Dark raises awareness whilst promoting equal opportunities and employment, as it hires a team of talented and multilingual visually-impaired waiters to serve you as “Guides” throughout your dinner.
