Very tasty, liked the tartar sauce!

It is located in an alley, not easy to find. Walking distance to the JR station. Had to wait in line for about 15 min. Worth the wait. The chicken had kind of a sweet BBQ flavor, tender and went really well with their own special tartar sauce.

The restaurant is very popular so you might have to wait. For 1,010 yen you get the cities signature dish. I think people from all over Japan eat there when visiting, but so too do locals. I will try again if I ever get back to Miyazaki.

I like Chicken Nanban a lot. This is the place I always go for a fix. Always a lot of food and always delicious.

It's sweet and sour and quite refreshing. Comes with a creamy sweet and sour sauce and rice and also a shredded cabbage salad which is light and refreshing as well. This would be good in the summer. And kids would like it too.

This place is famous for inventing Chicken original food.Namban, that became Miyazaki's number 1 food. It tastes like sweet and sour chicken but it is better. The chicken is juicy and soft but the outside is crisp. It has original gravy on the top and the gravy is like a tartar source. You must try this dish when you visit... More
