“Nanbantei Japanese Yakitori Restaurant”
Reviewed January 27, 2011

The whole crew shouts a greeting in unison every time a patron enters or leaves - a meal at Nanbantei is always enjoyable not just because of its consistently good food, but also for its unpretentious and cosy atmosphere.

Take a counter seat to watch Chef Fumio Tanaka in action. While stern-looking most of the time, like a patriarch of the family, he is a joy to watch as he expertly sprinkles salt over the yakitori sticks grilling over the charcoal fire. Sumiyaki choices not to be missed include asparagus wrapped with pork, tebasaki that are beautifully charred with the right intensity of smokiness, and tomato wrapped with bacon - best eaten whole to enjoy the combination of rich savoury deliciousness of the bacon and refreshing tartness of the tomato.

“Excellent yakitori restaurant”
Reviewed November 29, 2010

Excellent food, and real Japanese atmosphere in this yakitori restaurant located inside the Far East Plaza shopping mall (I only wish it was not located inside a mall!)
We went for the set menu which was both filling and good value.
