we are barbarians!

Nanban means ‘southern barbarian,’ a term that was once used to describe the first European visitors to Japan many centuries ago. At Nanban we celebrate the barbaric side of Japanese cuisine, spotlighting Japanese dishes of foreign origin and incorporating the international flavours of Brixton Market into our unique brand of Japanese soul food.
