A typical wet market for tourists who r first time visitors. The concept of buying yr own seafood and bring it to the food court kitchens on the upper level was great. Price wise, I seriously do not see many locals here, I can just assume it is not cheap. But cheaper than anywhere else for a tourist. Definitely an... More

This place is interesting in a sense that you get to pick your live seafood below, and get a stall upstairs to cook it. We had fun walking around the market, haggling and buying fresh seafood. A few pieces of white squid only cost us RM 6, a bunch of prawns for RM 20, a lobster for RM 80 (we... More

Not any more than you might expect if you've been to a few markets but we enjoyed checking it out. The prices weren't bad but I guess most people are only there for a look. Bought some huge lychees. Lots of markets around the place too so easy to stop in for a bit.

Get fresh seafood and fruits. The stall will cut for you to enjoy on the move. Mangoes are wonderful and cheap. Pick your choice seafood and go upstairs to cook to your liking. Tried stall 8, best bbq seafood. Food was abit salty for my liking. Else a wonderful meal.

Banzaan Market is just opposite of Junceylon Shopping Center. Lots of Live, fresh seafood. You can buy the live seafood and ask the stalls on the 2nd floor to cook for you with a fee. If you prefer cheaper food, you go there after 6pm, there is a long stretch of food stalls selling delicious fried chicken, mango sticky rice,... More

If you come to Phuket, you have got to come and experience the market and eat at the food court! BBQ number 8 upstairs made some... More

Great place to sample local food and immerse yourself in the local culture. My dinners for two nights came from the night market here. Some must-tries include the coconut ice-cream, the grilled fish, papaya salad (the stall with a long queue) and the pad thai. Take-away and grab some beers, then feast at your hotel! Night markets start after 5... More

Love this place. Great place to buy fresh fruit & veg, meats, poultry, seafood, spices and more. You will see things here for sale not seen in many places. Gotta love different cultures. Upstairs are a variety of small cooking places from different areas of TL that have many varied menus on display to suit all tastes at excellent prices... More
