Yakitori Boy is by far the best restaurant in Philadelphia especially for those who want to have parties.
This restaurant has a sophisticated set up with the restaurant being on the first floor while the karaoke bar and lounge are on the second floor. What really sold me on throwing my party there was that Yakitori Boy has private karaoke rooms that can fit anywhere between 6 to 30 people.
I made a reservation for my girlfriend?s surprise birthday party and I have to say I?m glad I did. The food and the service were exceptional from beginning to end. There was not one moment during the night where are sake glasses stayed empty for more than a few minutes because a waiter constantly came by to refill them. We ordered the lily and cherry sushi platters for our twelve person party which was the best sushi I ever tasted. We all ordered entrees which came out pretty quickly considering that there were twelve people. The karaoke selection had a diverse selection of classics from our childhood that we could not just pick a few. The only downside to this experience was that the place closes at 2a.m.
For anyone who?s looking for a place to throw birth parties, anniversary dinners, or just a get together with some friends, Yakitori Boy is the ideal place to do it. My girlfriend and her friends loved the atmosphere, the food, and the staff. Just make sure that you call ahead of time and make reservations so everything will be perfect.
