YamaSho sushi is superb
Great service and great food for a price. Also a nice karaoke spot with plenty of rooms.

Good Karaoke Spot
This is a great place if you like private room karaoke. They serve food and drinks at an okay price. Food is basic Japanese and the drinks are pretty simple as well. The sound system is decent and they have a happy hour which includes discount karaoke!

This was the only place my
This was the only place my group of ornery friends agreed to meet for karaoke. We had a really good time. I personally do not like sushi / sake and did not have the food. But my group did and they were complimentary. We're not foodies though. I recommend this place. The staff was really nice.

Sashimi was particularly good
Sashimi was particularly good in quality and flavor. Rolls are better than average and service was excellent. Very lively place so the noise level is high.

Great dinner & karaoke spot
Excellent food, although the sushi selection is a bit limited (not that many rolls, no seasonal specials -- we were hoping to get some toro but they didn't have any). Most of the rolls unfortunately have some kind of cooked or fried element to it, but there are still a few good ones that avoid it. The shiro maguro (albacore tuna) sashimi was heavenly, and the shiso cracker with spicy tuna is one of my fav japanese appetizers in the whole city. The cooked food is really good too. Excellent chicken karaage, and they have this noodle dish with pork and bonito flakes which is outstanding (didn't order it on this trip).
The karaoke experience at YamaSho is top notch! Best song selection in SF, and quick delivery of beer and sake! :-)

I was in town for a conference
I was in town for a conference and our last night a group of us went to Yamasho for dinner and karaoke. We had a blast. It was our best night the whole trip!

Great private room karaoke spot
This review is just for their private karaoke rooms, as they have general restaurant seating as well. YamaSho is a great place for getting a group of friends together to sing karaoke. The service is great and there's a phone in your karaoke room to call whenever you need assistance (such as turning up the AC) or to place a food order. Wonderful place to sing karaoke AND dine as you can order from their full menu and have your meal brouht right into the room as you are singing. The food experience was mediocre (we ordered different sushi rolls), but the karaoke experience was great as they provided an ipad which allowed us to easily search for the song/artist we wanted.

Friends and I rented a karaoke room here for four hours! We had so much fun we made a date on our calendar to come again soon. The service in our room when we ordered food and drinks was fast and very friendly. I highly recommend letting you're inner star come have a little mic time!

Second time and still charmed!
We went there for Birthday Karaoke fun! I may be hoarse from all the singing, but I have no regrets. The food is a bit pricy but good.
I’ve enjoyed this for another b-day venue too.
GO and have a blast!

Best birthday accommodation
I made my reservation for 18 people just two days in advance, not only was the restaurant very accommodating in that they made plenty of room for such a large party but they were timely and accurate with orders. Also, as it was a birthday dinner, a female server whom I regret not getting the name of brought out a free dessert and sang happy birthday beautifully and enthusiastically. The experience was great in every way, and the birthday song made it the most special birthday experience I have ever had at a restaurant as an adult. Because of the exceptional service I will absolutely recommend this restaurant, especially for birthdays. The food, and selection, was also very good!

We booked the New York room for my daughters 21st birthday. We were greeted warmly & signed in and quickly shown to our room. The staff was fantastic and food and beverage service to the room was a phone call away. It was a great night out!!

Fantastic Big Party!
Yamasho was a great place to have our group party! Very accommodating for group of 12, food was fantastic, and service was friendly. Overall, good value, lively place to have your special celebration or get together for an entertaining night with friends.

Great Karaoke rooms
Went there in a group of 4 for an evening of Karaoke and we were not disappointed. Also love the Izakaya-style food you could order even from inside the Karaoke rooms. I'll most definitively go again the next time in the Bay Area.

Fun with a few drawbacks
Yamasho was a great time. A group of 9 came out to celebrate my bday. We ate and sang for three hours, and probably would have stayed longer if we could have afforded it.
The food was decent-- not the best sushi, but we came for the music and were glad it was so convenient to get dinner. We ordered a lot of food, and didn't get three orders, which were still on the bill. Thank god we noticed, because it was pretty pricey-- about $50 per person.
Still, had a great time-- would probably go back and have dinner elsewhere.
