We went there to have K-Lunch, which means can sing karaoke and having lunch there. It is not expensive, around 60-90 per head, including lunch and drinks.

Karaoke is a favourite past-time among the locals, but I think there are better places to spend your time. Neway Karaoke has many parts of Hong Kong mapped, with branches in all the major districts of Hong Kong. My experience has always been the same - friends and I gather the enthusiasm to go and get excited about the prospect, but always leave feeling choked, dazed, and unsatisfied. The rooms are dark, outdated and smokey, and aren't particularly clean. There's now a private bathroom in every Karaoke room so guests need not navigate the corridors to find the loo, but the automatic air purifier dispenser often keeps the bathrooms smelling musty and overly-perfumed. Unless you go during "lunch-K", which is a bargain session targeting students in the 1-6pm time-slot (HKD160 per person or around), a usual evening session of 4-5 hours Karaoke will cost you about HKD300 or above, especially if you order alcoholic drinks. There's a custom of charging a 'nuts' fee - where Neway will give you a bag of chips, a fruit platter, or peanuts and charge anywhere from HKD70-100 to your bill. This fee is mandatory. The song choices, especially if you're looking for North American or European hits, is dismal. Don't expect to be able to find much in the tops charts which also feature real MTVs - most of the music videos you'll see feature bland landscapes or scantily dressed swimsuit models lying around in a dinky pool.

In short - go do something else more meaningful in Hong Kong! Unless Neway takes measures for major updates to their facilities, perhaps cancel the archaic 'nuts fee' custom, suggest you avoid. Go visit a museum, stroll the habour, or even head to the Yuen Long, Sham Shui Po, or Kam Tin areas for local eateries and a glimpse of everyday Hong Kong life.
