Taking the MasterChef experience up a notch with the famous ‘guess the ingredients’ game from the television show, those opting for the Mystery Box experience will choose one appetiser and dessert from the a la carte menu and a choice of protein for the main course. Then, back in the kitchen, the dishes will be transformed into a three-course meal. You will then have to guess two mystery ingredients from each of the courses. Guessing the mystery ingredients will win a percentage off the final bill. For example, those who identify four of the ingredients will receive 10% off their total bill, while five identified ingredients will allow 15% off the bill, and six identified ingredients will result in 20% off the bill.
