Nice fish market to walk around and seafood is fresh. But the restaurants on the second floor is quite pricy. 3000won to get seated per person and 10,000-15000 to cook a dish. Feels like a tourist trap as it standa

Great fish market consists of two parts old and new in a modern space. Do not hesitate to choose the live fish, which will bring in a restaurant. I suggest you should try the live small octopus. Enjoy the fresh raw fish.

Nothing compared to Tsukiji Japan. Not worth visiting. You basically shop for seafood downstairs and bring it to 2nd floor where you can choose a restaurant to cook for you. But .. Cost $3000 w per person service charge for seating in the restaurant. Cooking charges is $7000 w per dish. For 4 dishes and 4 person - need to... More

While asking around for directions from the Noryanjin station, we bumped into one of the restaurant chefs. Though her, we were introduced to the wholesaler. The first good point about this fish market is that by linking up with the restaurants before buying the seafood saves you money. We bought 10 scallops and 1 Grouper fish at 10,000 won and... More

The reason I rate this place terribly is because I am comparing this place to the many fish markets I have visited before in Japan, Taiwan and China. Fresh seafood is a given and what else do you expect? However, the cooking is another matter. At Tsukiji in Tokyo, you eat exquisite sashimi and sushi. Fresh fish cooked in Chinese... More

PRICE: We went to the old fish market (right next to the new fish market) b/c that's where it seemed like most of the locals were going. The only issue is that you have to speak Korean/Chinese in order to bargain properly in that environment. The prices are very fluid and rather than decrease the price of the seafood that... More

It was an eye opener to see such wide varieties of seafood. You can choose from over 50 stalls. Most of them can speak mandarin but not so much on English. Of course cooking of the seafood will be additional cost. I would recommend going to the old market as it has a traditional fish market feel.

This place is highly recommended for all tourists! The seafood was fresh and fantastic! The price was very reasonable too. There are 3 restaurants around that will cook your seafood buys for you. Will definitely come back again!

It is easy to get here by train. Short walk (200m) through an ally and you will reach this market. You may get a lot of fresh seafood and plenty of restaurants can prepare seafood selected by you. I suggest you cook them yourself if you stay in Seoul long enough. Since there are many Chinese visitors, price of seafood... More

It was a good experience at the market. The kids saw many interesting seafood. The sellers do not speak English but they speak Mandarin so it helps if you can speak Mandarin. We don't know much about the prices of seafood. We bought a king crap, lobster, 4 pc of abalone and half a portion of salmon sashimi for KRW100,000.... More
