Although this place is miles from the ocean, the fish here is so fresh that it feels like the boats must be somewhere nearby. As in a supermarket, you take a small cart and choose from an array of seafood—crabs, prawns, lobsters, clams, oysters, and fish. The waiter then takes your selections to the chef, who cooks it however you like. Typically, your eyes are bigger than your stomach, so select with prudence, not gusto. Unfortunately, the 1,500-seat setting and fluorescent
lighting add to the supermarket feel, but it's a fun and unique dining experience. The seafood here is overpriced (plus you pay a charge for the cooking) and the atmosphere is extremely touristy, but the fish is good and the place is always packed.

Looks like an old grocery store converted into a restaurant. You shop the fish and vegetable selections and the staff are very helpful in assisting on how you should cook the items to have a variety for your table. Very attentive staff, great experience

This is not the place to go for a romantic meal for two but is fantastic for fresh seafood cooked any way that you want. The setting is strange, it's almost like eating in a huge warehouse and the furniture is basic but the choice of food and the service make up for this. It can be expensive as you choose your fish/shellfish and pay for it by weight and then pay extra for the cooking. A tip is to go for the extra large prawns rather than the lobster
- they taste the same but there is more meat and less shell on the prawns so better value.
