Siem Reap's Red Crab Seafood Place

Nothing says fresh seafood than having it alive one minute and served on your table, cooked and delicious, a few minutes later.

We were happy to find one such place 5 minutes from our hotel, The Royal Empire in Siem Reap.
The restaurant we went to was none other than the Red Crab Seafood Restaurant. They’re located at National Road No. 6 Phum Krous Sangkat Svay Dangkum Siem Reap Road Cambodia, Siem Reap 9999999, Cambodia.
We were lucky to get a table when we arrived there for dinner on a weekday. Bus loads (yep, BUS loads) of foreign tourists were brought to the place as a perfect end to their day in Siem Reap.
The place in itself is quite spacious, and the staff, fast and efficient. If you’re coming as a big group, do make reservations. Never come in hungry, unless you ordered ahead.

More than a dozen aquariums dot the outside wall of Red Crab, near its entrance. You can either choose which among these sea critters you will be having, as well as the manner you would want it prepared.
If you don’t want to deal with this, you can always pick your dishes from the extensive menu that Red Crab offers.  Here's what's on the menu: RED CRAB SIEM REAP MENU.      
Here’s what we got:

Service was so-so, but we kind of understood, given the bus load of people that seemed to have 8 dishes per table. The place was quite clean and brightly lit inside, and the AC, real cold.
Food was delicious, and the food presentation plus condiments, complete. Things were a bit pricey though, as expected.
Overall, it was a great meal.

  1. I really liked the idea of keeping a spectacular display of sea creatures beside the tables. Hope that attracts the customers a lot. Few days back I went to that place Boise seafood
