We tried the lunch bento which was reasonably priced at $13.80. The portion was decent and included a bowl of miso soup and red bean mochi dessert. The yakitori were delicious and authentic. The staff were polite and attentive. We were seated at the counter table where we could get a view of how the chef prepare and grill the... More

This has been recommended for a long time, so I finally made the time to come here, and it is AWESOME. From the second you walk in the aroma strikes you and takes you back to Japan (if you've been there) and the small, quaint, authentic decorations make you feel as if you've teleported to Tokyo. I probably over ordered,... More

Had lunch there. There are set lunch offerings but we decided to go with a la carte Yakitori. Overall great food at reasonable pricing. The lamb cutlet was done to perfection. The chefs work on the Yakitori at the heart of the dining room. Would head back there again.

This restaueant has been surviving in Singapore for amazingly long, but the price is very reasonable. They use charcoal to grill the yakitori and their yakitori is pretty good. I like chicken with salt as it is not too rich and taste good Their lunch set comes with dessert and it is worth the money. The service is not that... More

This place never fails to impress me. I always go back to Nanbantei for authentic Izakaya food and atmosphere in Singapore and love the starter dish of raw salad with miso. And all the staff are very friendly which makes the whole dining experience more enjoyable.

In Singapore, you don't really get a restaurant which survives for more than a few years at the same place. Nanbantei has been at the same location, serving the same delicious kushiyaki since I was a child (which is decades ago). Their skills are evident. Whilst most other yakitori stalls can survive because they have a delicious sauce, at Nanbantei,... More

Food was good but on the pricey side. Would come back if we had a bigger budget. Overall, quite a good place.
