“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Food was good but on the pricey side. Would come back if we had a bigger budget. Overall, quite a good place.

“Yakitori Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago

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.

“Good Yakitori, especially if you like it quite salty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2017

It is the second year I have been here. It is a pleasure to sit at the bar and watch the chefs prepare the food and present it straight to you for eating. However, there was a lot of salt sprinkled on the yakitori while it is being cooked, so much so that it was extremely salty and both my friend and I ended up ordering a lot more drinks to quench the thirst! I'm sure that amount of salt can't be too food for the blood pressure! Service was quick enough, although the chef got 3 of our dishes wrong, but it was correctly in a timely fashion.

All in all, my friend and I enjoyed catching up in the place, as it had a good atmosphere where it was not too noisy, there was good food, albeit slightly salty, and good customer service. Will return.

“Value for price and nice ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2017

Nanbantei is an authentic Japanese Yakitori Restaurant in Singapore more than a decade ago...
small restaurant with limited seat.
But we do like to sit at bar table as we can see the how the chef prepare our food, how to grilled with the right amount of seasoning...
We just enjoyed that very much...
And the food will serve to u immediately once they removed from the charcoal...
