  • This is more a shopping arcade for tourists than a real, working market. That's not to say it's bad, it's just what it is. The tuna cutting demonstration is amazing to watch. Buying food and barbecuin...  more »

  • Visited this place for the tuna cutting show, it was incredible to see how "easy" the "butcher" cut up a very huge tuna. The market sell a wide variety of food and there's a candy shop nearby too. There are some restaurants also. And its incredible how there was no smell despite the freshest fish, squid and all kinds of shells at every corner. The place is very clean for a market.
  • Quite a clean market. The main show is the tuna cutting which lasted under 10 mins. Some stores sell cooked food and there are tables outside facing the sea.
  • Worth to spend at a day here, nice scenery and fresh seafood, better to check the bus schedule before go. The market close at six but most shops closed before five.
  • Visited almost 3 years ago. A must visit place if you are a sashimi lover. The freshest and value for money Chutoro and Otoro i have ever tried! Do take note on the time of the Tuna cutting show.
  • Very well-managed market!sea food is wonderful for its freshness. nearby is park and marina city lined up lots of yachts. Coast line has wonderful views for lovers. Must go place!
