Nanbantei is a relatively small Japanese restaurant but their food made a big impression on me. Me and my friends ordered California Maki, Spicy Tuna Maki, and Beef Yakiniku. At that time, I wasn’t a big fan of makis yet. But Nanbantei converted me. The California had a balanced taste of all of its ingredients that made it so delicious.... More

I was surprised when accidentally seen this restaurant in greenbelt 3 I really like eating yakitori so fascinated how they cooked it they only sprinkled salt and pepper but still really taste good, wondering what they put marinating their foods..

If you hunger for authentic Japanese yakitori (pork, beef, chicken, and seafood barbecue), Nanbantei of Tokyo is the restaurant to visit. It is small but has a cozy ambience. I love sitting at the bar in front of the open grilling station, drinking sake or Japanese beer, while waiting for my yakitori. The food is great at reasonable prices, and... More

We were second on the waiting list and waited for about 10 mins since we didn't have a reservation. The manager, Alecs, was very polite and helpful. Their beef with garlic was the best of all we've tried. Definitely going back.

The service is friendly. The food is delicious and appetizing. There were 3 of us. So, we ordered quite a few dishes to try. Our repeat orders is the Chicken MeatBall skewers and Bacon wrapped with Asparagus.

Casual Japanese dining. Yakitori. 2 things that make it easy for me to say yes to every dining invitation. So Nanbantei it was last weekend. You have to try their tebasaki (chicken wings), aspara maki (pork outer), ninniku (grilled garlic cloves), beef yakiniku, sakana maki (dori fish) and yaki ika (baby squid). Negima (chicken and leeks) is one of my... More

We went in as a group of 3. The food was good, the place was clean, but they offer alcoholic drinks so the place get a little too noisy as the night goes on. My friend and I were shouting just to hear each other's voices and we didn't even have alcohol. The place was a bit compact as well,... More
