What's New?

110615_lift03

Have you ever felt disappointed spending time trying to find seafood restaurants that will give you a delicious taste? We believe there’s no need to worry now. With a newly opened place called Dory Seafood restaurant, the problem no longer exists.

Dory Seafood, on Road 299 near the ToulKork Market, welcomes customers every day from 11am to 9pm. My relatives and I went there last night. Before we got there, what caught my attention most was the colourfully designed light on the top of the restaurant building. To me, it’s a good decoration.

I entered the restaurant and saw many people, but it wasn’t crowded.

At that time, some of the people were chatting with their friends or relatives, waiting for food they had ordered, while others were checking the menu searching for favourite foods. They all seemed to be happy.  

I went upstairs. Everything was in good manner. The shop’s decorative style made me feel quite comfortable. I could see all the new (new for me) pictures of seafood  hanging on a wall.

There are many friendly waiters and waitresses waiting to say, “Welcome to our place” to customers.  And one more thing: if you prefer a private occasion with your friends or family, you can book a VIP room.

My friends and I chose a place in a corner upstairs. The environment was good because I could see a huge space of the market and the overhead fan provided a cool breeze on our heads. There are many types of seafood for you to order.

At first, I had a bit of difficulty selecting the food because of its price. My friends said the price of the food was a bit expensive, but we all agreed to spend the money.

We spent a period of time choosing food we liked that was at affordable prices.

After a while, I decided to order a mixture of fried seafood with green peppers. While waiting for food, I saw many people coming; most of them were there as families.

I started feeling hungry after spending around 10 minutes sitting on a black chair made from wood. The waiter came to ask me to wait for a while longer because the kitchen staff needed a little more time to cook the fresh seafood.

A style of cooker to decorate the food looked well. A smell of it hit my nose and made me feel hungry. All kinds of seafood – squid, shrimps, oysters and crabs – with green peppers and onions were well mixed over a white pan crust.

Although the price is definitely something to think about, being able to eat our favourite food and enjoy its delicious taste is very important.

For some people, the price of restaurant food is not important.

For young people, however, who think that they don’t have much money but wish to enjoy seafood on any occasion, I would say you should consider  the price of the food at Dory Seafood before you go there, because you will spend a bit more.
