We have been used to free flow of drinks, now imagine buffet dinner to go along with your karaoke session – wouldn’t that be amazing? Now, guess who’s the one giving away this deal?

There are currently no other ongoing promotion that offer similar aspects of what being offered in this deal. If you are an existing member of RedBox, you won’t get any extra discount for this deal. First off, let’s compare the price (we are not taking RedBox Plus@Pavillion into a count):

Image above is the indication of the normal RedBox Rate. The amount you need to pay is RM29 with a reported 58% discount for this deal. That is only true if you are taking this session

Otherwise, you’ll find yourself spending more and saving less than what is stated. Also, depending on which outlet you are going (either Redbox/Greenbox/Ria), this deal does not offer free flow of drinks on certain outlet while the others do and that goes for the tidbits as well. So do take note on that and not to forget; you’ll also need to pay these two extra charges:

  • 10% Service charge
  • 5% Govt tax

That’s around RM4.50+

Whichever outlet you choose to go, no harm doing some research on those outlet so maybe a little check in to foursquare might save you from possible disappointment. For example:

 Check out their comments and you might be able to avoid all these scenarios. You can check on the other outlets simply by searching at Foursquare.

WHAT ADL SAYS:

Pros

  • Average voucher validity period: from 7th Jul – 7th Sep 2012
  • Free-flow of non-alcoholic drinks for Green Box and Red Box Ria outlets

Cons

  • Non-refundable for un-redeemed voucher
  • Voucher not valid on public holidays and eve of public holidays
  • At least 1 day prior reservation required and subject to availability
  • Upgrade non-alcoholic drinks to house beer for RM6 each drink; for Red Box outlets only
  • Tid-bits charges applicable for Red Box outlets only
  • RedBox outlets do not offer Free-flow of non-alcoholic drinks
  • All outstanding charges to be paid on location
  • Cancellation/re-scheduling/no-show will subject voucher to forfeit without refund
  • Tax and gratuity are not included
  • Cannot be combined with any other offer or promotion

Considering that the last time this kind of deal went on, some of the outlets accepted it while some others requested their customers to purchase a membership card that cost around RM50. While it is hard to confirm which outlet would do that and which wouldn’t, it is best for you to call in and ask when you are about to do your reservation. With reservation not being able to cancel, it is best for you to avoid such tricky situation. At first glance, all major terms and shifting towards the cons and some of you might get confused with which outlet offers what and which outlets don’t since they have split choices. Well, in short:

Normal RedBox Outlets:

  • No Free Flow of Drinks
  • Allow Upgrade on Drinks (RM6) to alcoholic drinks
  • Charges for TidBits

RedBox Ria:

  • Free Flow of Drinks
  • Allow Upgrade on Drinks (RM6) to alcoholic drinks
  • Charges for TidBits

GreenBox:

  • Free Flow of Drinks
  • Do not allow upgrade on Drinks
  • No charges on TidBits

We hope that is clear for all. One major concern would be the fact that it is not available on public holidays because that would be the most ideal for anyone who would like to go for a karaoke session. But it is understandable as that would also be considered as ‘peak’ business days for RedBox as well. For those who have discount vouchers which is not from this deal, sadly you cannot combine and use them. This deal though does provide a significant saving for RedBox Fans who would want to enjoy a great singing session with tons of food to enjoy.

Let’s take a look on a video regarding Redbox made by 8TV Quickie;

What else to complete a video without being accompanied by reviews right?

In terms of food, the buffet was nothing to shout about. The spread was a very simple one, consisting of fried noodles, fried rice, spaghetti, a few main courses (fish, chicken, lamb, beef, cuttlefish, and vegetables), some finger food, a very small selection of dimsum, crackers, waffles, and deserts.

In terms of song selection, they have a rather comprehensive one. Friends tell me that Red Box has better (and more current) song selections compared to other joints.

The room we were in was quite small with space for about 5 or 6 people to sit comfortably, but the sound quality in the room was excellent. The song selection I felt was slightly better than what is offered at News KTV. The process of selecting songs on the computer via remote control was very easy to master and very convenient. This is a huge improvement to News KTV’s tiny computer with keyboard at one end of the room which made it very distracting when everyone has to walk in front of the TV screen to select their songs on the computer. But the one thing that ticked me off at Red Box was that most of the latest songs on the Hits List were not karaoke versions but in fact regular video clips of the original artist with voice and all minus the lyrics.

They had the special lunch hour rate which includes set lunch for RM12++ per person so that was really affordable! We had this HUGE room for 3 people which was really nice. We had ample space for dancing haha

So, are you convinced? What are you waiting for? We are gonna save our breath just to sing our heart out later on. With substantial saving that you can make from this deal and an ever famous RedBox supplying the fun and enjoyable moment for you, we from ADL simply have to give this deal a 4 stars at least. So do you find our review helpful? Care to share your experience in RedBox for our fellow group buyers? You might just help some of these eager souls out there! So talk to us and thanks for reading peeps. Have a wonderful weekend ahead.
