  • Inside the grocery store has restaurant. We ordered Korean food to take out. The price is reasonable. It was also close to closing hour so the food court had put mark down hot food in the warmer display. I had one big bowl of noodles for $3 and roast pork for $3.
  • So much to choose from! The variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, and prepared goods is spectacular. I always love walking into a store filled with new items to try. The seafood selection looks fantastic, especially the live seafood section. There is also a food court and a generous selection of household goods (rice cookers, teapots, bowls, etc).
  • Just a three minute walk down to the hostel I'm staying at. There is a food court area and a vast selection of Asian food products. Very useful when you need a quick bite to eat whether you want to dine inside or you want to grab an item or two to take back to your hotel room. Saw quite a few snacks in Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, etc. There is also a Japanese book store as well. I definitely have to stop by again whenever I come back to Seattle.
  • I love this grocery store. It has great produce, good meat and a ton of other options. There is free parking. It is connected to a book store. The prepared food is great. The service is nice. The only downside to this grocery store is that everyone loves it. It can be a test of will on weekend afternoons.
  • My wife and I love to go here! It is so much more than just a grocery store. Inside there is also a small household items section (mostly kitchen type things) as well as a bookstore! Our favorite thing is to grab a bunch of snacks we don't know and try them out at home.
