You’ll need to mix them well before devouring, as the sauces are placed at the bottom of the bowl. If you’re not keen on raw fish, they have cooked chicken as an option too.

If you come here during peak hours, the queue often extends outside of the restaurant, and the lack of seating means you will need to wait a while but it’s definitely worth the wait.
