Went to Noryangjin twice and bought scallops, prawns, salmon sashimi, oysters, king crab, abalones and octopus. Each time, it cost us about 50,000 won. On both occasions, we went to the same restaurant on level 2 which charged us 25,000 won with soju included. Great price for super fresh seafood! Would go back again in future!

The Noryangjin Fish Market is easily accessible by metro. You should come early morning to benefit from the most exciting period of the market. You can buy your fish here and bring it to the restaurants nearby to have it cooked! Try it, it's worth the experience!

Noryangjin Fish market is a must go place for me. Every time I go to Korea I must bring my friend and my family to there and eat seafood. I like this place because you can choose seafood on the first floor and ask people there to cook it for you. Also there are people that they can speak Chinese... More

A new complex building was opened recently. There are still stalls being operated in the old wet market though. The two are just adjacent to each other. On the second floor of the complex building are restaurants. At a certain fee, they can prepare the seafood you bought from the market for you. To go to the market, simply take... More

A seafood paradise and not a place to meet if you are a seafood lover. Everything from Alaskan king crabs, prawns, scallops, etc are either alive or super fresh. A must visit!!

Went there 2 years before at the old market which was pretty dark and wet. Heard that a new market was opened in April and we decided to give it a try again. The new building was bright and spacious but most of the vendors there were Chinese which was good for us because we came from Hong Kong. After... More

Not saying they are the most honest people on earth but please do not be put off by bad comments. After reading the reviews, I nearly gave this place a miss but thankfully I didn't. Most commented about how they feel cheated about the food preparation cost. I felt that way initially but when I questioned the cost (with my... More

We visited Noryangjin Fish market in Oct.2016. We purchased some seafood down stairs and they took us upstairs to eat. We were told the table charge won 5,000 (about $5) per person, about total won 10,000 (about $10) But the price raised to won 24,000 (about $24) when we sat on the table. I heard so much about this place.... More

The market is full of all kind of seafood such as crabs; huge crabs, flounders, other fish, octopus.... It is a huge market. You can buy fish, or any kind of seafood and have them cook upstairs in any restaurant for a certain price. It is a little expensive I think and even to have it cook. It is one... More

Interesting huge local + tourist seafood market. Wide range of fresh and iced SF, reasonable price. But then the restaurants just don't handle / cook the SF right. What a waste!
