Their Facebook ads worked. I wouldn't be dining in Nanbantei had I not seen their promo: Php888 for 3. 128516

So for the late celebration of my parents' anniversary, I brought them here for dinner. We ordered the Samurai Set A. All because of Ebi Tempura. 128513

Ordered an additional California Maki (Php 195) and Green Tea Ice Cream for dessert.

We were served free vegetable sticks for appetizers. Served with their vegetable dip. Wet towel came next and our California Maki soon after. Ebi Tempura and Miso Soup came in consecutively and the grilled items followed one by one. I would have preferred that they arrive all at the same time but no complaints from me because the service was quick. Granting that only half of the tables are occupied, still our server, Reb, was quick and attentive.

Definitely loved their tempura. It was light and crispy and had a good shrimp-batter ratio. Liked the asparagus yakitori and their Miso soup. The grilled items were just okay for me but my parents seem to like them. I definitely loved the green tea ice cream! So matcha 128156

We got a bonus too! Redeemed a free coffee jelly from Looloo!

For it's price, it has to meet so much expectations, and it did.
Love the Yakitori set, specially the miso paste they give with cucumber and carrots. You can also dip the yakitori to it. Yum yum!

Salmon head is also the best.

For my wife's birthday, we went to Nanbantei which was one of the first places to introduce yakitori to me many years years ago in Greenbelt 3. Suffice is it to say, I found that earlier experience good, but expensive, so I'd never had the occasion to return to Nanbantei... Until a few weeks ago...

This is my first time to this branch. The ambience was decent. Typical of Japanese resto. Nothing too wow, but just about right. The likes of Sugi and Kimpura are better in ambience, design and furnishing, though. 3.5/5

We ordered their best selling platter which had the following:

Aspara Maki
Tebasaki (chicken wings)
Pork Garlic Maki
Shiso Maki (Pork with Shiso leaf)
Negima
Corn
Potato

3 sticks each, making it 21 sticks. At about P900, decent value of about P40 to P50 a stick. Though a lot of these are veggies, making food cost low (sorry, a resto operator's term).

The Shiso Maki and Pork Garlic Maki's are good. The problem is, they gave one batch of the order quickly (maybe 15 minutes), but they gave the 2nd batch of sticks after about 45 minutes since we ordered. Wow. No advice on why so long or lack of managing expectations.

Added a few orders of Gyu-Yaki (beef steak) at about P200 per pair. These may be the stars of the evening. Not much else made the dinner worth remembering.

The sashimi, though inexpensive in price, hovering about P200, were ridiculously small in cuts. As in tiny sashimi cuts. Is this the new value for money? I'd rather come clean and make if about P300 but more decent in size. 2/5

Tempura was fine. Good quantity, good price. Nothing unusual. Though we had to ask 3 times for extra sauce. Again, spoke volumes of the service that evening. 3.5/5

Was it a fine evening, was the food so fantastic, was the service so good that it compensated for average tasting yakitori (compared to my new favorite Tori Tori)? The answer to all of the above, sadly? A big resounding NO!

Only one staff, a woman, made us feel decently serviced. The other staff were so disorganized and indifferent that I was unimpressed and sadly disappointed at Nanbantei. The manager profusely apologized to me after we told her of the slow service and lengthy wait. After that did the staff seem interested to follow through on the little things like refilling water, tea, etc.

Definitely won't go back. Suffice is it to say that once is more than enough for Nanbantei. Sorry, Trina B, you deserve a better place to celebrate your birthday.

Ordered the sushi platter, and a few yakitori faves (according to the server), food was okay but was disappointed that the looloo promo was no longer available. They said it ended in August.

Last tuesday, mom visited me for a quick lunch date. Yayyy!! 128522 Mom wanted japanese food so I brought her here -- my all time favorite jap resto! 128513 They're not the best but they serve gooooood + affordable food! And I really love their house green tea 128513128518128525

Since we're just two, a "platter" would be too much so we just ordered from the "regular" menu so we can get what we want. I was planning to order the spicy tuna maki since it was really good! 128525 But when we sat down, they have a picture of the Mixed sushi platter and Ebi tempura so mom ordered both. 128517 We also ordered Kani Salad, Tofu and Japanese Fried Rice. 128513

While waiting for our orders, we were given veggie sticks and hot tea. Their green tea is really really really green! Oh soo good! Just the way I like it! 128525128076🏼

It's my first time to try most of the dish we ordered so I made sure to try a little of everything (but a lot of the salad! 128541).

The Kani Salad was okay. Not the best salad but generous serving of kani, mayo and mangoes. The lettuce was fresh. There was just too much mayo and the mangoes weren't that sweet.

The tofu was good. It was soft and I liked the sauce! 127842128513

The Ebi Tempura was WOW! 127844 The shrimps were not that huge but they were a lot! Crispy and not oily! For the price super sulit!!! 7pcs for 375! 128588🏼

The sushi platter was good. You get to taste different types of sushi/maki 128512 but I think it would be better if we just ordered the spicy tuna maki. At least it's something we both like. (Oh well! 128537)

The japanese fried rice was good. The rice was cooked well and it was flavorful! 128077🏼

And for dessert, coffee jelly! Hooray for free desserts hashtag |ooloo perks. 128521128588🏼 If given the option to choose, I'll get the avocado or green tea ice cream since they're not so common but since this one's free, aarte pa ba ko? 128514128541 Mom and I both liked this! The jelly was crunchy and not too soft and sweet. And the ice cream! Oh myyy it was really thick and rich! Ang sarap sarap!!! It was really good! 9786️ Thank youu, |ooloo for this awesome treat! 128513128536128077🏼

As usual, service was excellent! Servers were very friendly and they attended to all our needs and requests! 128522

Only complain would be -- there were a lot of flies, even the candles they placed can't shoooo 128546

One of our family fave spots- can't count how many times we've eaten here! We always always order the Yakitori Special and the Surf & Turf and it never fails to delight each hungry tummy!
Ive tried their GB and BGC branches and I must say both outlets deliver awesome yakitori at very reasonable prices.
Another plus- they have the sweetest corn on the cob in the metro. Sooooooo yummy I could eat it as a meal if i could (but i wont coz their yakitori is too delicious to pass up on)
Bottomline- worth the money, the time, and it just plain rocks!
