Restaurant Review: Nanbantei of Tokyo at Bonifacio High Street Central (BGC)

Published on September 15, 2015

My teammates and I finally got to cross out Nanbantei of Tokyo from our must-try-restaurants-in-BGC list as we were counting down the last few days in our old office. I had been meaning to try this restaurant located in Bonifacio High Street Central, but some of my teammates had already tried it before. I assumed that they weren’t up to give it another try. But when I told them in passing that I wanted to try it because of their PHP888 for 3 promo, I found out that a lot of my teammates, those who were not yet hired before the initial visit at Nanbantei, also wanted to give it a go!

We paid the restaurant a visit on a busy Friday afternoon so we weren’t surprised to see the place packed with hungry diners looking for a quick Japanese fix. But luck was definitely on our side because we were able to score a table. As I mentioned earlier, we went there to try their PHP888 for 3 promo. They offer three kinds of set meals good for three people which only cost PHP888. There were 8 of us so we decided to share three set meals – two sets of Samurai Set A and one Samurai Set C.

Waiting time was actually not that bad considering that we were there on a busy day. What kept us entertained was watching the group of staff members grill our food as we peek through the glass of their open grilling station.

We all then started to panic when the food started to arrive at our table! We lost track of the amount of food being served to us. Hahaha! So please pardon the unorganized and blurred shots. We were just all too excited to dig in. Please note that the photos I’m posting here are probably just 2/3 of the actual food that we consumed since we got two sets of Samurai Set A.

Everything is just so delicious! We were initially worried that we would not be able to finish everything. We then stopped talking to each other while we were munching non-stop. And before we knew it, everything was gone in 15 minutes!

We got two sets of Samurai Set A because everybody wanted to have tempura. I think this was one wise decision because we all loved it. I appreciate the fact that the tempura is not oily at all! Plus, I got a decent serving of shrimp unlike other restaurants that serve tempura with 10% shrimp and 90% breading.

I loved the distinct smoky flavor that I got from every bite of all the grilled treats. The meats are very tender and juicy, too. Everything is seasoned to perfection, and the serving size is also perfect.

All of us enjoyed our lunch at Nanbantei of Tokyo. Although I enjoy the experience of grilling my own food the way other Korean and Japanese restaurants do it, I loved the fact that we didn’t have to sweat it out at Nanbantei. I think I can say in behalf of my teammates that we had one helluva experience at Nanbantei of Tokyo! Super sulit!!! ^_^

  1. Those skewered grilled meats! Kakagutom! Another resto to try in BGC. In fairness, sulit yang P888 for 3 promo na yan, ha. I assume may kasama na yan na rice, tama ba? :)
