  • Overpriced especially at the restaurants, charged close to 70k won for cooking 4mini Abalone & steaming 5shellmeat. This is excluding cost of seafood.  more »

  • Loving this place, you can pick your own seafood lively and proceed to the restaurant and tell them how you want it to be cook. The price is very reasonable too. Good place to have fresh seafood.  more »

  • Had a great time. It is really one of a kind experience. Don't get the sellers who are trying there hardest to offer things to you (sometimes too actively, for my liking) discourage you. I suggest watching the sellers downstairs carve the fish with your own eyes, do not let them take the fish alive to the restaurants for the preparation, because they might just use some of their older, not so fresh fish and take the one you bought back to the water tanks, unknowingly to you. Watch out for that sort of scam. Other then that I fully recommend visiting the market and enjoying it to the fullest.
  • Had fresh sushi here, tuna belly. Super good. Lots of stalls with so much fresh fish every day. There's also an old fish market there too. Not great there, lots of people pulling you in to buy their sad looking fish. The fish at the noryangjin fish market was so much better. Definitely try the restaurants inside the market up the escalators.
  • The market is vast and very local. Worth a visit, and the sushi and sashimi are the freshest you can get. The fisherman are very fun to interact with and they will be more than happy to take pictures with you. There are two levels inside the building and one street level outside. If you like fresh fish this is the place to be. Not many cooked food stands around, but enough to satisfy your thirst for novel food. The subway station is right next to the market entry so getting there is easy.
  • A wonderful opportunity for local Korean fare and a culinary education! This Multi level fish Market attracts locals in the morning for wholesale prices and a more eclectic crowd at night. You can choose your fish and the staff will turn it into sashimi and a tasty soup. Head upstairs and there are places to sit and eat and wash down your seafood with beer.
  • It's a fish market. Many stalls but variety depends on what's in season and you may find quite a few stalls selling the same seafood. Buy what you like and bring it upstairs to the several restaurants that will readily prepare typical Korean cuisine dishes with your "catch". Essentially as a seafood soup, grilled, steamed or sashimi. Be mindful that most of the restaurants may not have much or any add-on ingredients, I bought oysters and wanted oyster omelette but they did not have eggs to prep my dish. The restaurant I went to charged 3,000 KRW for table setting for one person, 7,000 to steam a dish or have it grilled. Stir fry is 8,000, steamed fish is 10,000 and soup dish odds 10,000-20,000.
