I can start with saying it’s not the first time, nor the last time I’m at Sakana Lab. Sakana Lab is in the same alley as popular places like the Craft Beer Bar Embargo and speakeasy Battbong. This Japanese restaurant is one of the most popular ones in the BKK1 area of Phnom Penh.
The menu consists of a lot of seafood, but also a few different variations of normal sushi and sashimi. It’s not cheap, but still a lot cheaper than the sister restaurant Sushi Lab on the sane street. Most of the dishes are between 6-8$ and the quality of food makes it worth it.this time I felt like some sushi so I had salmon and avocado roll plus spicy tuna.
During all the times I’ve visitied this place the food has never let me down. Beer at $0.50 a glass is also a bargain. Not only does this Japanese restaurant in Phnom Penh serve great food, the customer service is fantastic. When you enter there is not a person that wouldn’t greet you. Doesn’t matter if its the chefs or the waitresses, everyone gives you a warm welcone. The same applies to when you leave the restaurant.
All in all Sakana Lab is a fantastic place to visit if you want some Japanese Food in Phnom Penh. After that you can always stop by Embargo Craft Beer bar next door for sone delicious craft beers.
