    You may buy fish on first floor and have it cooked for you and served on second floor restaurant. Or you may choose and place your order at the restaurant. Lively atmosphere and good value.

    The market on the first floor is worth visiting. They feature many different shops selling from fresh seafood to souvenirs. You can find almost anything from this place. The price is reasonable too. The restaurant on the second floor is over priced in my opinion given the quality.

    Excellent value food here. Buy something from the market and pay Y500 for it to be cooked upstairs. Upstairs restaurants also have good local food. English menus also available.

    Definitely one place to go if your going to Naha. It's a great place for anyone that loves seafood and fish and would like to try new things. You can choose what you wanna eat downstairs and they will cook it for you on the first floor. You can also directly go the the first floor to chose a restaurant.

    The market does say 9PM, but many shops actually start closing around 7PM if it isn't busy. Good place to find little trinkets or jewelry!
