The newly-opened KK Box may yet be the largest karaoke centre in Kota Kinabalu. Located in Kompleks Karamunsing, the “Family Concept Buffet-Karaoke” places strong emphasis on living up to its label as a family-friendly karaoke joint that features a fantastic dinner buffet to boot.

A project of Total Passion Sdn. Bhd., KK Box boasts a whopping 39 private rooms that offer seating capacity from between two to 35 people. Said rooms are decorated in a predominantly contemporary Japanese style, with details reminiscent of tatami mats and sliding paper doors. Curious features, such as the ever-present zebra pattern upholstery, serve to liven up room décor.

Many of the rooms are also centred around themes as evidenced by massive photographs placed upon their walls. Football fanatics might enjoy the football room, which offers several shots of famous players and Manchester’s Trafford Centre, while tourists might choose to take a preliminary view of local destinations through the Mt. Kinabalu and Sipadan rooms.

Each room is equipped with a large projector screen, state-of-the-art sound technology and a karaoke system that offers a selection of over 40,000 songs in a variety of languages. Many of the larger rooms are also equipped with private lavatories, and are big enough to accommodate staff parties, company meetings and other similar functions.

KK Box also prides itself on its food and beverage offerings, starting with its RM10++ set lunches, available from 11am to 2pm. Diners are allowed free use of karaoke rooms up to 2pm, at which point happy hour kicks in until 6pm. The establishment’s buffet dinner officially opens at 6pm.

The buffet offers a variety of dishes from different cultures, rotating items and recipes found in Western, Malay, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, and other cuisines. Diners may bring their plates to their karaoke rooms, which are, again, open for free use from 6pm to 9pm. An eat-all-you-can buffet with two free drinks and free karaoke certainly sounds like a deal at just RM38++. Guests who prefer to eat a la carte may do so at KK Box’s adjoining I-chi-ban Japanese restaurant.

9pm to closing time at 1am features the Golden Hour, which entitles guests to the use of private karaoke rooms for a standard cover charge. KK Box sales manager Zainon Khan shares that the centre is an ideal after-dinner place for tourists and families, as it offers a safe and private environment that is conducive to family nights out with the kids or “clean family entertainment.” “Tourists can be in their own groups, and it’s a great alternative to going to night clubs,” says Khan.

KK Box is found at Block A, Ground Floor, Kompleks Karamunsing, 88300, Kota Kinabalu. For more information, call 088-310888.
