    Okay place for Japanese food, but more into the karaoke experience than food.

    The weeknight karaoke discounts are great and the iPads let you search if you don't want to browse the books.

    It's a bit pricier but it has by far the best selection of music and serves giant bottles of sake.

    The service was extremely slow - I had to ask them to take our order after sitting around for 15 minutes. Their soft drinks are $3 with no free refills. The food was pretty good.

    Ask the lady at front to sing for you. She might come in and make a cameo, and she's awesome!

    My favorite karaoke spot in town. HUGE song selection (name a genre, they have it, Broadway musicals included). The food is also great. A wonderful all-in-one karaoke place!

    Not sure if the entire staff does this, but our waitress turned off our karaoke machine mid-song at closing. I would think we would be able to finish the song before she did that.

    Just remember, when you're ordering that third bottle of sake, city regulations mean they WILL come and take all your remaining booze away at 12:45 am. No exceptions.

    The sushi was good but it was a bit pricey and service left a lot to be desired. It was an almost empty restaurant and 4-5 servers just standing around when we had no plates, soy sauce, etc.

    An amazing last-minute find for karaoke on a Saturday night. Instead of waiting for your turn at Encore, chip in on a room with some friends and sing til you can't sing any more. Read more

    This place is hidden jewel in such a non-descrip nabe just East of Van Nesss on Post. Nice vibe in a big open lofty space. Good sushi. But the killer deal is the basement karaoke studio rooms. BIG FUN Read more
