If Mad Max 4 is ever made, it should include a karaoke scene set in this large room, decorated with lots of oxidized metal and glowing green plastic. The lighting goes from dark to darker as the night wears on—all the better to see the video screens (one at each table) as well as a large projection on the wall feeding song selections and lyrics. The karaoke runs until 4am, but the kitchen is only open until 11pm, offering 25 types of sushi rolls and countless noodles and teriyakis. What’s madder than gorging on shumai, unagi and spicy tuna while belting out Abba?
