Japanese restaurant Nanbantei is one of the pioneers to introduce authentic Japanese charcoal grill, otherwise known as Kushiyaki, to Singapore. Diners are able to watch the skillful chefs prepare their skewers of meats, seafood and vegetables on the grill at the open kitchen of the restaurant. See what foodies like this place for

Must try: Nanbantei's special sauce (comes with their Yasai Stick)

Among all the dishes, hands down to their Unagi Kabayaki! I'm not really a fan of Unagi due to their famous prices. This is the authentic Unagi from Japan!!! Those unagi served in Sushi tei/ichibanboshi can't even beat Nanbantei's~

My visit to Nanbantei all started when I brought my dining partner to Kazu for a meal. Not too impressed, he said "Nanbantei is better." Fast forward many months, we found ourselves with a dinner reservation at this place and yes, Nanbantei is better.
 
Reservations are a must at this cosy joint, and expect service to be efficient. Groups of three or less will be given counter seats with a great view of the grill, which is great if...

Nanbantei is probably the oldest Japanese Yakitori Restaurant in Singapore. More photos and detailed experience at:

 Entering the simple wood furnished outlet, you can see that seats are limited in this homely and comfy restaurant. Simplicity is the core of Japanese cuisine. I’m very glad that they accept seat reservations if not I’d probably be eating Tori-Q instead.
