Would definitely go back over and over again

Been there twice and will definitely keep going back whenver i can! 

Tried one of the yakitori lunch sets and I must say that for $16 - including a warm green tea, service charge and GST, I was very very contented. The serving was huge and yummy.
Although the ala carte prices for the yakitori is not all that cheap, I would say it's worth a try! Its the kind of food I wouldn't mind paying more 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~

One of the better Yakitori joints in Singapore

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 you need inspiration on what to order, not so much if you were intending to walk out smelling shower-fresh.

While waiting for your items to be cooked, you'll be served some raw vegetable sticks with salt and miso -- a perfect, rereshing side to the buffet of grilled food you'll be having. Of the many sticks of yakitori we ordered, our favourites were:
- Pork with Asparagus: thinly sliced pork wrapped around crisp asparagus spears
- Pork with Okura: thinly sliced pork wrapped around juicy ladyfingers
- Ox Tongue: gamy, chewy and flavourful
- Beef with Miso: a beautiful shade of pink inside by default
- Sweet Corn: WHY SO SWEET.
All items were well-salted and seasoned, grilled for just the right duration with a well-developed smokey flavour -- not a meal you could recreate at home just because you have the necessary ingredients.

On the side, we also got ourselves some garlic rice and potato salad - both not mindblowing (will any version ever be?) but extremely comforting and well-executed.

It was a great meal, and we'll be back for more. Perhaps for some chicken heart, lamb chops and avocado tempura?
