  • Highly recommend the night market at the fish quay. All fresh, barbecued to order at great prices. Large prawns at MYR20 for 500 grams, that’s less than $7 Sing. We followed up with a nice fresh fish ...  more »
  • It would be good if this is your first time visiting the night market but I personally find it distasteful. The air is bad and stuffy. And there are also many touts around.  more »
  • Night market in mangosteen would owe it to giving or packed in the living, where the boy bought me was the salesperson was in seat. ㅠ Suria Sabah, 3rd floor price is similar to that of the mangosteen is unbelievably good mountain Mart. 3rd floor food court inside the sink in. pudeukoteuga is also right next to the floor-to-ceiling and watch the sunsets you can eat in the terrace in La's.

  • I like this place. People come here to get all their daily fresh supplies of fruits and vegetables. One thing that I love most about this place and for sure you will too is that, it is built so close to the ocean and this is definitely awesome view😇
  • It was our first visit. Good experience as all the seafood does look fresh. If you wish to pack it back to KL they does provide packing service too to keep the freshness. As is it cheap? I guess if you are local you would able to get it cheaper than tourist like us.
  • Amazing seafood and typical Malaysian market. A must experience. Prawns as big as lobsters and all seafood cooked to order.
  • Although it seems a must for locals,tourists have better places to visit for shopping or even to buy cooled and ready- to-eat fruit. I didn't find that place very attractive.
  • Listed as one of the main attractions I was disappointed with this market. There's not much variety of things here, not colourful and the vibe isn't cheerful either. If you don't have anything else to do, sure, come and have a look. Otherwise you have much better markets in other towns in SEA.
