A place where many people go just to have a decent home cooked meal. The main course is of course it's varities of grilled fish which goes well with the side dishes and its daenjang soup. The fishes are grilled to its perfection and one can choose their own choice of fish to go with their meal.

No frills, no fuss - just great grilled fish amidst the hustle and bustle of the Dongdaemun area. The alley is easy to spot as it is lined with grilled fish restaurants. Unclear of which is the best, I just went into one randomly and found it to be tremendously good. The mackerel I ordered was perfectly grilled and served with rice and a selection of sides.

To get there, take the Subway Line 4 (Blue Line) to Dongdaemun Station and exit from Exit 9. Walk straight for about 200 meters and then turn left after the IBK Bank. A few more meters down the road (which is lined with vendors selling all kinds of snacks); and the grilled fish alley would be on your right.

Its very easy to locate actually,and we found this alley during our first visit to Seoul in Winter 2013...ordering was also easy because they are so friendly...prices are reasonable too as each order comes with a bowl of rice and lots of varieties of Kimchees. Different stall serves different types of Kimchees. During our second visit in Summer 2014, I came back to this area with 17 people in our group as I brought my students along for a university visit...It was really fun and all stalls are 'big' enough to accomodate all of us. Beware though that it can close very early around 8.30 pm so better get yourself there early to taste those succulent fish! Do try!

Halal food for Muslims since it is Grilled Fish. Went there twice because of the food. It is truly the best!

Very cheap compare to other halal restaurants. If you go there please do order the Grilled Fish & also the Sundubu Jiggae. Worth the money.

The hospitality from the owner of the shop also was tip-top!

Would definitely go there again.

Went there because of reviews indicating that the place was great. Fish was actually quite tasteless, and left out in the cold. The owner actually re-grilled the fish despite it being grilled multiple times and close to being charred. Cost for a fish was 10000 won. Not worth visiting.

I'm specifically rating the section of the street with the grilled fish and not the surrounding stuff- the street vendors, the stores, the hustle and bustle of bolts of fabrics being delivered on mopeds, etc. There's a small stretch of alleway full of restaurants that serve up grilled fish. The restaurant workers are all out, grilling various types of fish over charcoal. To me it smells good. I love grilled fish. I gave it 5 stars simply on the fact that I've never seen anything like this in the US and to me, that alone made it worth venturing to see. But even better, if you decide to eat at the restaurants, the fish tasted fantastic - fresh and relatively mild (at least the one I picked out was). Everyone's trying to get you to come eat at their place so it's kind of hard to decide because it appears they are all selling the same types of fish. I picked the place with the smiling women, because I liked their smiles. LOL. My husband and I pointed to which fish we wanted; we each selected different fillets. Then you go inside, they bring the side dishes (kimchi, miso soup, rice, shiso leaves, etc) and when the fish is ready, they bring it to the table. Most of the fish was about $6 each and there was one for $8. It was fabulous. As a warning, be prepared to have the grill smoke blow back into the restaurant when the door opens so for people with sensitive eyes, this may bother you. It did me but it's not such a bother that I wouldn't have gone or wouldn't go again. It's definitely not a tourist trap! Another side note, you might want to go to a coffee shop if you need to go to the bathroom, and not one of the fish restaurants bathroom. Um, it wasn't the nicest in the world. These directions are from the KBS website- Walk out exit 9 of Dongdaemun Station of subway line 4. Walk towards Jongro 5-ga to see the Daehakchon shopping center. In front of the center, take the road on the left leading to Cheonggye-ro and walk 100 meters to reach the food street on the right. The grilled fish restaurants are concentrated at the entrance.

We have been wanting to try grilled fish and search online and found there is a grilled fish street in Dongdaemun so decided to try since we are going there to shop.
There were alot if grilled fish shop in the whole street. Initially we wanted to try the first store that we passed by cos the ahjumma was friendly and the restaurant seems busy. However decided to walk and see the rest. We then walked into one of the grilled fish restaurant but the attitude of the ahjumma was terrible so we walked out and went back to the first store. At least this one has menu with english and chinese wording.
We ordered the grilled mackarel and stew and was so good. We finished everything and was glad to have tried grilled fish in seoul.

We went on a Sunday after 8pm and most of the fish shops were already starting to clean up (though the whole chicken soup restaurants in the same alley were still pretty packed). Thankfully, the grilled fish shop that we went in closes at 9pm so we still had some time to eat. The aunties were friendly, spoke Chinese, and recommended the grilled mackerel. Food was served quickly and the fish tasted great. Didn’t need to dip any sauce cause it was nicely grilled and seasoned. Simple but has a nice comfort food feel to it.

For every fish you order, there will be complimentary rice, cold water and also variety of banchans (kimchee) that come with it. Make sure you try different stalls so that you can taste different types of banchans. Price is low and wont rip your pocket.

A must visit but make sure to go early as it will close around 8.30 pm
