I go here all the time with my Japanese friends. There is a term in Japanese called Nomihoudai, it means 'all you can drink' roughly. In Japan you often pay for hours of drinking instead of drinks themselves. There is one place in NYC where it is 15 dollars for 2 HOURS OF ENDLESS DRINKING PLUS FREE PRIVATE KARAOKE! I mean, you can't get much better than that $$ wise. The sushi there is great for the price too and it it KAITEN ZUSHI meaning revolving sushi around a conveyor belt. I say we go for dinner there and then go upstairs for some Karaoke. It's in a private room, so don't be shy. They have tons of songs in English and Japanese.
