In addition to the usual Japanese fares which we savour, Tanba exceeds our expectation as they specialise in Japanese BBQ. So, this calls for an experience of cooking our own food before devouring them with pride. Not only is that experience a fun one, but once you find out the range of fresh meats available for the BBQ, you will definitely wait no longer to pay them a visit. We all know how BBQ in a restaurant will unavoidably leave our clothes and hair with the aroma of the smoke but fret not. At Tanba Restaurant, the air ventilation is superb and you can even walk out of the place without any hint of ever cooking your own food over a charcoal pit.
