I love karaoke, and I love food, so naturally I wanted to try this place out. At first, the menu put me off, it just seemed a little eclectic. But, between me and the three friends I went with, we all found things to suit our taste, and we all have very different taste. The karaoke room was a lot of fun too. All the karaoke songs have 80's videos- what a trip! Anyway, we had a great time, and i think I might plan my birthday party there this year.

Wow you really did embarrass yourself especially since sushi samba is one of the most overrated, overpriced and over exposed Asian fusion places in the city. Wow way to reference a good quality spot. In all your travels apparently you haven't gotten to know the restaurants in the city in which you live.

Anon, I've never eaten there before, so I don't know how good the food is. But that's the thing: neither do you. I never review on this site, but your comment is so absurdly pompous you should be humiliated to have written it. Oh, I'm sorry sir. You're so ethnically diverse and well-travelled, of course you know that a restaurant is no good because the decor offends your delicate sensibilities. People like you make me sick. "I'm this and I've been there and my wife ooh lala so I should know.." You don't know anything, because you're so stuck up and impressed with yourself that you walk away from restaurants when you don't like the color of the window. It was empty? Maybe its a well kept secret. But that's fine, because the best secrets are kept from trendy know-it-alls like you.

I read the MenuPages reviews and thought this would be a good place to hold a group dinner for 10. Other reviewers said this place was chic and great, so I expected a packed restaurant on the Friday night that we went there. When we got there, the place was so empty that the hostess and waiter were standing outside chatting. The place looked cheesy and low-scale with its red window and dim lighting. At first, we thought we arrived at the wrong place because the sign from the previous restaurant at that location was still intact. When my friends and I realized that we were at the right place, we were stunned and felt tricked. We were so offended at how different the place was compared to the reviews that we didn't even announce ourselves and decided to leave. I'm Chinese and my wife is Italian; I studied in Italy for 9 months and we just came back from a 2-week trip to Tuscany, so we know what a good Italian or Asian or fusion restaurant should be. An example is "House" in San Fran or "Sushi Samba" in the village. We were trying to figure out why there would be such a huge discrepancy between the MenuPages reviews and reality that we seriously suspected that Asia Roma got their friends to log positive reviews just to get a high rating. If you don't believe me, then just walk by the restaurant before committing -- you'll see what I mean. This is a classic bait-and-switch.

I stopped here for lunch recently while in the court district. The service was top-notch. The waitress was attentive to us without being intrusive. She anticipated every need. The food was tasty, well-prepared and arrived in a timely fashion, which is imperative when one is on a lunch break. We are vegetarians and the menu held a wide variety of choices. The desserts were an addtional treat...really well=prepared and unusually professional in presentation. Can't wait to go back !!

When I go out, I want to have a good time. The only way you can't have a good time is if you don't want to. The food is EXCELLENT! The staff is extemely professional. The atmosphere is relax, sit back and enjoy the night. The lounge down stairs (with working fireplace) is small but quaint. The karaoke is fantastic. The sound system is superb. It's very difficult to visit the Asia Roma karaoke lounge and NOT come out with a new friend or two. Like I said before, The only way you won't have a good time is if you don't want to. But I guarantee you will.

Great fun! My husband and I recently hosted a party for some family and friends, and we had it at the restaurant's lower level. Everyone had such a great time! The food was delicious (love that salmon!), the wait staff was very attentive, and even the DJs were accommodating. If you're looking for a good time and something different to try with the family, this is definitely the place to go!
