Waiting Time

None for a weekday lunch.


First thing that strikes you when one talks about Nanban is that they open till late on Fridays and Saturdays, 01:00!

The food here is decent, I had a Three Garlic Ramen and it was not too shabby. I had some qualms about the soup at first, because it felt very weak for a Tonkotsu, but I suppose the reason they did that is because once you stir in the crushed fresh garlic it really brings out the flavour of the broth. My only concern was that they gave too little of the crush garlic, hence you don’t really get to enjoy the wholesome flavour of the garlic and broth throughout the entire process of eating the bowl of noodles. The Hanjuku egg is a little on the small side but well done, although they only served up half of the egg.

Portion size wise, it was a little smaller compared to Kanada-ya’s but it is nonetheless filling.

The interior is as quirky as the exterior and they serve up a good selection of Japanese alcohol but not as much as Kanada-ya, they definitely have more of the western selection than Kanada-ya though.

Worth Returning?

Yes, but perhaps to try something else on the menu.
