This place is a huge wet market with hundred over stalls selling fresh and live seafood at level 1. Pick your own seafood and they will guide you to level 2 where they cook and you dine in. You can also proceed to level 2to order directly from menu. 4 stars for the experience and unique sight. OK for the price and taste.
This fish market is so clean and most of the fish and sea creatures are still alive and definitely fresh. It is a great experience wandering around to see fish, eels, shells, lobsters, crabs and many more in the first floor. The sellers are friendly, greeting travelers who are passing by. Go up to second floor, there are stores that sell seafood product. There are restaurants also with seaside view. The price is little bit expensive if you eat alone.
