Ganso Manekineko (Orchard Cineleisure)

Plus, a library with more than 150,000 songs to choose from. Oh and a buffet.

Japanese entertainment company Koshidaka Holdings has just opened its seventh Ganso Manekineko karaoke outlet in Singapore, this time on the eighth floor of Orchard Cineleisure, billing itself to be the largest one in Asia at 2,218 sq m.

There are a whopping 80 furnished karaoke rooms decked out according to four colored themes, each decorated with illustrations of the chain’s mascot cat. But if you’re planning on bringing your entire entourage with you, you can opt for one of the five VIP rooms that come equipped with pool tables, or a function hall that can hold 150 people (great for birthdays). Prices start from $15, which gets you three hours of singing time and free-flow soft drinks, snacks and ice cream.

The Orchard Cineleisure outlet is also the only karaoke joint in Singapore that offers an all-you-can-eat buffet spread of local, Japanese and international dishes for lunch (11am-3pm on weekends, $20) and dinner (6-10pm daily, $32 on weekdays and Sundays; $40 on Fridays and Saturdays). Or you can go for a la carte options like laksa, braised pork knuckle, rendang and more if you have a smaller appetite.

While the food itself may not be the main focus of this place (it is a karaoke venue, afterall), its library boasts some 150,000 songs in various languages that are kept up-to-date every fortnight based on the latest releases, music charts and customer requests.
