horrible entertainment, good bar tenders.
It's a real shame that they keep the butch lesbian KJ with the blonde hair working this place. I've been in this bar once before and had a shitty time and left partially deaf because the music being too loud and could tell the speakers in the place had been blown. The food made me sick and got offered drugs by some hillbilly with a southern accent.
I thought I would give this place another shot the other night after a few months had gone by and so me and my boyfriend went.
Once again the music was blaring way too god damn loud (I play guitar in an all girl rock band so Im used to the noise). I couldn't hear my boyfriend sitting two feet away from me. There were people in the bar but the KJ decided it was time to take hour long breaks while people still wanted to sing. Then the classiest thing I've ever seen happened when she had a singer carry around a jar asking each individual person for tips. Tips for what??? Certainly not tips for doing your f*cking job and putting people up to sing!
When people did get up to sing it sounded like ass. Either the music was too loud and you couldn't hear the singers or the singers where ear piercingly loud.
I really hope that this lady is just the shitty worker that every bar seems to have at least one of and not representative of the other karaoke hosts that I'm told work there other nights.
I'm almost 100% sure that the positive reviews of this place are written by the staff and owners. Take my advice and avoid this bar like the plague. It needs a serious change in entertainment staff and remodeling of the building to get rid of the "date rape" vibe it puts off. I will never step foot in this place again. This place doesn't even have the charm of most cheap local dive bars in the area. It's just bad. Everything about it is just bad. Stay away. Seriously. And after reading the reviews of this place it seems like it's just one employee that needs to be fired unless there is more than one butch lesbian with blonde hair working there.
Dude, seriously.... The Butchy DJ is the coolest most amazing chick we have ever met, and rocks our asses off anytime we are in town and we love her! However,from the moment we walked in, not telling them we were from Wild Child Magazine and there to review the bar, we got treated like crap under the bar tenders shoes, she even went so far as to tell the Owner of our Magazine that she could never get a job there. This is a bar that looks like it used to be a horror house and our feet stick to the floor. People there are nice and were very easy to get along with. Its a fun place when they aren't trying to be the militarty bar police. All in all we are boy otting this bar in our next mag, of course giving credit to the DJ and people and saying we can live without the bar staff!! Got an issue with that? email us....seriously its the last war we'd ever recommend to anyone with taste!
Great times. Did you expect Asian Garden to be Portland City Grill or something? It's Beaverton people. If you really want a sketchorific time go to Monty's :D (which I also enjoy). The karaoke hosts and bartenders are amazing. You will get your moneys worth of alcohol at Asian...that is no understatement. If you're looking for a classy time...Asian Garden is not for you.
Terrible karaokee host.
I'm from denver and I sure do hope that not all the karaokee joints oregon are like this! my cousins and i decided to try to find a karaokee bar on christmas eve to get a break from all of our family. the asian garden was suggested to be the only bar still open on xmas eve so we went there. when we got to the place it was packed and pretty hopping. then for no reason the karaokee host decided to not work for an hour. the place cleared out and she started playing some local top 40 radio station. my cousins and i wanted to sing but the host was taking to long. when we left we saw the host playing video poker with her friends and getting drunk. maybe the host is new but THAT IS NOT HOW YOU ACT WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING!!!!
my family and i were scouting for bars to go to on new years eve and i will not be going to the asian garden. if i wanted to get drunk, not sing and listen to the radio, i can do that at home.
Disgusting. When we arrived there was noone around. The restaurant portion had a closed sign so we went into the bar. It is very dark and still smells strongly of smoke even though smoking is banned in public buildings. When someone finally arrived they opened the restaraunt portion. It was dirty, moldy and smelled like urine. We left. The place was really disgusting.
I don't know what these reviewers are smoking. Upon reading the reviews here, I decided I'd give the asian garden a try. It's close to my house, the rating was high, and I had a serious need to croon to a room full of strangers.
I've been to the Garden about three times, hoping and praying that it would get better. It never did.
It's dirty, smoky, and there are WAY better places to karaoke (yes, even in Beaverton). The majority of the crowd is either packing heat or looking for a baby daddy. The karaoke guy has a false sense of entitlement simply because he has control of the mike. I mean, come on.... you're the KARAOKE GUY. Relax.
DANCING AT THE ASIAN IS THE BEST. WE GO TO THE ASIAN WHEN WE ARE DONE HOPPING THE BARS. THE ASIAN WE CAN ALWAYS DEPEND ON TO BE OPEN AND READY FOR A PARTY. EVERY NIGHT THEY HAVE KAREOKE. THEY SERVE FOOD ALL NIGHT LONG. THE FOOD IS ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD. THE DRINKS ARE MADE WELL AND ITS A GUARANTEED GOOD TIME.
BEST KAROKE WEST SIDE. I got to say that the Asian Garden is a very cool bar, drinks are cheap, Karaoke guy was funny, kept the night moving and had lots of singers. I would have to say the BEST time we have had out at a karoke bar....
