Had yakitori and business bento sets. The yakitori is good for value as you get to try different types of yakitori. As for ala carte, chicken kawa and chicken wings are a must!

The sashimi was good. Took their rice set with udon, they served inaniwa udon, very smooth, a must try. The eel rice set with tempura also money worth though the tempura can be better. Overall satisfied will go again.

Very tasty, perfectly cooked yakitoris in Singapore, with a large selection available. The atmosphere is alike any downtown yakitori place in Tokyo : cramped and busy.

Before flying back to Indonesia, a dear friend recommended Nanbantei to us because he knew how much we enjoy Yakitori... Nanbantei is located in Far East Plaza, a small hole in a wall kind of restaurant that reminds me of all those quaint Yakitori shops in Japan. We love the Yakitori, the fast service... The extensive drink list and the... More

I've been regularly visiting Nanbantei since 1991 and it never lets me down with its quality of food and service. It used to be only me when I was working in the vicinity, then with my wife, and now with our son. The place is fast becoming part of our family's favourite haunt!

It's always crowded. Seats are tight but never once bad food or bad customer service. Totally enjoyable evening!

The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere to it. Its small size is typical of authentic yakitori restaurants in Japan. Due to its small space, diners are seated rather close to each other. There is good ventilation, hence it wasn't smokey even though the chefs were barbecuing non-stop. Service staff were rather efficient and observant. Used plates were quickly cleared. We... More

Food quality just as good as Far East Plaza. Sea bream sashimi v fresh and nicely dished (see pic). We chose to sit at counter to watch the chefs BBQ. Much brighter and spacious at this outlet compared to Far East, although Far East has tht old Jap charm. Good thing is we can walk in and there are many... More

Was there with my Wife for our first visit. Heard of nanbantei being very famous for their yakitori in Singapore and has been in Singapore for more than 30 years.We have tried many other yakitori restaurants in Singapore but the food being served here has lack of Japanese yakitori taste, some of them are downright salty. We ordered a $39... More

Food is good but service is not always consistent. They should add more variety to the menu as it has not changed since many years ago.
