We visited this place on a Thursday evening and it wasn’t very crowded. There were plenty of seafood vendors with tanks and buckets containing various assortment of live seafood for sale. It was quite a sight to see. People can choose whatever seafood that they want to eat and have one of the numerous restaurants in the area cook it... More

Excellent food, but we were ignorant of the need to bargain for prices. We ended up paying $650HKD per person - far too much for that type of food. Would advise that people negotiate a price beforehand or at least be forewarned that the meal can get pricey fast.

A little touristy but not bad. There are many restaurants but I get the feeler that any one of them will be fine. You pick out your fish from a supplier nearby and the restaurant prepares it. It's fun and something to do with visitors.

Come at night for dinner. The place is lit up and you will know you are in Lei Yu Mun because everyone is trying to get you buy fresh seafood from them and every restaurant wants you to dine there. Seafood is seafood. Every restaurant is more or less the same. MAKE SURE YOU ASK ABOUT THE PRI$E SO YOU... More

The fish market has a wealth of strange and interesting things for sale, among the usual offerings. Lots of color, activity, smells, and you can choose what you want to eat for lunch if you have a mind to do so.

We had dinner here with local friends and they took us to the Lei Yu Mun fish market,it is each time a wonderful experience, very impressing to see the amount of living fish in the aquariums ready for eating, we had crab, an excellent fish and fried rice, all of outstanding quality. It is an absolute must.

Is really only one or two blocks. For you are an aquarium buff then this is the place for you. All sorts of gadgets for aquariums. A few stores are interesting for pics as they have plastic Bags filled with goldfish and fighting fish hanging up outside the stores which was fascinating. But after those stores and a few pics...

I have not visited HK after more than 10 years. Lei Yue Mun has transformed. It has more new buildings. The seafood is expensive as compared to Malaysia or BKK. And may be even Singapore. A medium size lobster is S$152!! We had our seafood dinner at Hoi Lung Sea food. Instead of picking out every item and bargaining on... More

Worth a trip by ferry or bus - walk through the wet markets and see the huge range of seafood available for purchase. Keep walking up the trails to the top, or visit the Tin Hau temple. Many restaurants throughout the market for dining.
