In the heart of San Francisco is a true authentic Japanese experience.

From a Japanese restaurateur who really likes to sing, YamaSho makes you feel like you are guests in the cozy home of a talented native chef.

"YamaSho is a Japanese Karaoke hot spot. We go there mainly for the good Japanese food, but the Karaoke clientele is charming and entertaining, and always friendly. Service is great,
and it is on our hot list of great places to eat when we visit SF.

"We came here for dinner before a movie Saturday night. When we sat down there were only a couple tables full. It was busy by the time we left. The service was horrible. We were constantly having different servers come to the table and the food took forever."

"This place is not good for big groups. The food orders took forever. We ordered food that they brought at least 40 min after we ordered it. It took tooo long and they messed up the orders. I also had a karaeoke reservation that had to be changed because the restaurant took too long! We were a big group, like 12, but not that size as for them to completely confuse everything on our orders! The food is mediocre, edamaes are served cold and the ambiance is not even good."

"We needed a good sushi place near the Great American Music Hall and this fit the bill. The food was very good and atmosphere was nice and quiet; we were there on the early side so probably gets louder as the karaoke upstairs gets going."

"When visiting Tokyo I experienced private Karaoke rooms. I decided this was a must for a girl’s night out when visiting friends in San Francisco. I was pleased to find one just a short walk from BART. We were welcomed into a lovely Japanese restaurant (looked great for a date night!) and escorted to a private karaoke room under the restaurant. The on-call service for food and drinks was a treat. We enjoyed being silly and singing on a level only friends can appreciate. The service was wonderful and we will definitely be back!"

"We came for the KARAOKE. We had two little girls with us who can't sing karaoke at the typical late night lounges, so the private rooms are the only reason we went to this venue. the sushi was bland, mediocre and high priced, we will never return. he larger room "osaka" was $27 because we went for the half price karaoke rooms between 5-7 on Sunday. i would not pay the full price $54.
. Service was well-timed and friendly"

"We went as a party of 6 people for karaoke. We made reservations ahead of time and everything was ready by the time we arrived. The food is great...amazing for karaoke food standards. They have an iPad for song selection. The rooms were clean. The sound-proofing could use some work, but it's pretty standard for karaoke here. Worth the extra cost compared with other karaoke joints in San Francisco."

"Being able to enjoy a delicious Japanese meal and sing karaoke with friends is the best way to experience karaoke. The food here is very good."

"The fish were fresh (apparently from Japan), delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly and mindful. The ambiance was also nice; the decor was great. Definitely great for date night or small group of friends. Next time I go will definitely sit by the bar so I can learn about things from the sushi chefs. Highly recommend!"
