Great varities but average cooking

The location is great - at the 5/F of a huge seafood market. The dinning hall is comfortable with amazing harbour front view. The raw seafood are fresh but the cooking is only average. The signature king crab legs is disappointed. They serve nice beverages.

If you want to try out the south Korean food , this is a perfect place. Different kind of food is displayed with clear marking . Had a wonderful experience.

We returned to Busan in April 2015. The buffet was disappointing. The pork belly, chicken skewers and beef was our favorites. This time, I wouldn't say that all three were even average. The desserts, except for the mochi, has also gone downhill. The fruit juices are still excellent. The sushi selection now has more rolls which were okay. The selections... More

I was here to have the seafood dinner buffet in October 2014. However i found out the price does not worth to pay for which is around USD40 plus minus. The selection of food choice are limited. Environment should be improved, the dining area looks old. Renovation should be done in near future. Food taste is very normal, nothing special... More

Really less seafood for a seafood restaurant located at Jagalchi; no salmon, no tuna; only the same rubber-like sashimi which you find at many other places in Korea; There was a signboard saying "tuna from 1pm to 1:50pm". I asked the staff at 1:15 and they answered, no tuna today during lunch because of the big wedding party. Will be... More

I just can't think that the food here would be rated good by anyone. I've had better at the free breakfast at my hotel. The sushi and sashimi was OK, the sliced tuna very good. Most of the fried food "Chinese style" was just Ok. Chicken skewers, chicken was too soft, never a good sign. The cooked mussels needed an... More

Located on the 5th floor of the Jagalchi Seafood Market, the spread is huge but we were there for the king crab legs, BBQ prawns, fresh oysters and BBQ abalone. Couldn't possibly sample all other dishes but we did justice to the sashimi, sushi, tempura and not forgetting the fermented plum juice and the Expresso Machine.

With hundreds of fresh seafood waiting to be bought and cooked at Jalgachi Market, we decided to head up to the 5th floor of the Jalgachi Market building to check out the seafood buffet. Since it was a Sunday, the price for the buffet was $38.50 instead of $35. I wanted to try new things so I had red mullet,... More

I visited this place because we heard than Busan is famous for its seafood, so we decided to give this place a try as its highly rated here on trip advisor.. We made a reservation for a Saturday night, but it seems its unnecessary as they didn't check our names when we came in. There was a lot of functions,... More
