Fantastic selection of hard-to-find items and cookware. Most of the staff are kind, but if you approach the fish or meat counter speaking English, they will often have to call to the back for someone to take the order. That is not a bad thing in and of itself, but can make it difficult to get quick and easy service. That being said, it is a welcoming enough place that not speaking one of any of the multitude of languages you can hear there is no impediment to the shopping itself, and if anything, gives the place more personality.
If you enjoy eating & cooking Asian food this is the market to shop at. They have a great fresh bakery, butcher & fish department. The fruits & veggies are fresh & not overpriced. My wife is Asian so we shop here all the time. Definitely worth trying for a reasonably priced home made dinner. They also have an area of cooked Asian food that you can take out if you're feeling lazy or your single & not into cooking.
