  • A wonderful place to spend some time walking around shopping for the freshest catch of the day live seafood. Then head upstairs with your haul to pick out any of the many restaurants. Don't worry if you don't speak Korean. Pass your bags to the jolly ajumma at the door and allow her to decide whichever will be to best way to prepare the items you have picked up. Make yourself comfortable, knock back a couple of beers or soju and wait to enjoy your meal. I found the prices very reasonable and look forward to coming back here again.
  • Study before you visit. If you are educated enough, it will show you a lot of joys
  • Wide variety of choice, the price isn't so bad either.
  • Wow! Bought some king crab, and other assorted fresh fish. Then we were able to get it cooked for us. It’s about half the price it would cost at some upscale restaurant. Place is pungent, but hot damn the food is good. Highly recommend.
  • Check out here if you want to feel some special & fishy Korean vibe, I gurantee you won't regret
