Nanbantei is an old favourite. Always busy, always welcoming and professional, always good food. Lots of interesting bits and pieces grilled in front of you. II know its a sake/beer place but some better wine selections would be nice! Or a reasonable BYO policy. The wine on offer is very ordinary for such great food.

We (three of us) made a reservation for a weekday dinner. It is a small place, and because it's a weekday, it wasn't super crowded. We ordered the set menu for 2, plus several add-ons. Yakitori was nicely done and we enjoyed the meal very much.

Called the restaurant pretty last minute and they were nice enough to accommodate us. Everything looked so good that we over ordered! Love the miso paste and cabbages that they serve as starters! Nice and friendly! Can't wait to go back!
