It's now turn into another tourist spot only with less value. Seafood were still fresh and lots of varieties but not cheap. You can see mainly Chinese tourists and crowded over lunch hours. Cooked food is terrible and tasted badly. Disappointed

we took a walk to the place, very disappointed, small, commercialized, not much to see, did not enjoy the food either, and the price is higher than places we ate in the CBD. I would not go back or recommend a friend .

Try the Light Rail there is a stop right alongside the market. Otherwise a taxi from where you are would not be too expensive

I go the fish markets at around 8:30 am during the weekdays to avoid the lunch time rush and buy what I need to take home. For those wishing to have lunch, no later than about 11:00 am would be a good time to look around to... More
