Visit here recently. This eating place like a wet market. Noisy... The surrounding is dark. Cleanliness of toilet and floor below expectations. The Taxi driver is very rude. avoid them and better request for Uber.

Quite an experience. At least 75 tables were full. Good choice of live seafood. This restaurant is made up of about 7 separate leases. Go for the chaos. Prices good. Sembulan lobster restaurant has better seafood though.

Great seafood. Fast service despite how busy it is. A regular choice when visiting KK. Popular with mainland Chinese tourists.

It's not that expensive not that cheap so I consider this a medium range for price. The quality of freshness is guaranteed and variety of seafood is aplenty! Don't waste your time at Filipino Market trust me!
