Go to the market, buy your fresh seafoods, book a private room for your group, have your buys cooked by the staff, order drinks, sing along! Enjoy your time with your friends and colleagues! Call it life.

It's a wet market so be prepared to haggle. Do research before going there - know the prices of your favorite seafood in other markets or groceries, then haggle to get a good price. If you're not good at this, then don't come here because...More

I am not too sure what time the market closes but I can still get to purchase seafood from the market at 9 pm the last time I was there. The restaurants close quite late.....you can still get food at 12 midnight.
