"Order received yesterday, cooked today. It’s exceedingly fresh and well clean raw fish compared with wet market in town. No other places can buy such great taste sea bass without earthy taste after cooked. Sea bass cooked in braised perch, fresh and delicious. Definitely will buy again from Sampancatch. Thank you Sampancatch for such good quality fishes."

"The fish in Sampancatch is undoubtedly one of the freshest I have ever tasted.  The flesh is so thick and juicy!!  Even though I kept the fish for more than a week, there was not a tinge of fishy smell.  I had invited a friend over for dinner and she too detected the excellent quality and asked me immediately where I got my supply of fish from!  If you wish to cook a meal that impresses, you must get your fish from Sampancatch!"
