    Good attempt ! However the white balance is out, try to use natural light if possible

    Maybe, you should shoot in RAW and adjust the WB in PS, but the result may not be good as the lighting is poor. You are unable to bring out the texture of the food.

    The exposure was increased to a point that there's quite a lot of burnt out sections, blanking out a lot of details. There's too much yellow cast due relying on the indoor lighting. If you really have to shoot indoors, use a flash indirectly.

    Do take note of your background too. Currently, your shots have distracting elements in the background

    I'm not saying your background must be totally plain. Sometimes it's all right to have useful/meaningful background. That's the decision of the photographer. But like your soft shell crab and california maki at the back, that's a no-no.
