This is a very fun night out with friends. Even if you aren't into Korean food, the show is great, and the whole experience is so weird and unique it is worth it. I usually am not a huge fan of Korean food, but there were several things on the menu I was surprised I really liked. The waitresses are... More

Food wise, I would say so-so and slightly over priced, ordered 7 dishes (nothing special) with a bottle of soju and cost us more than USD$150. Nevertheless people were mainly here for the performances, it was weird seeing these young and beautiful North Korean ladies performing all kinds of wonderful talents on stage at the same time serving the customers...

We went for karaoke night, which was a live show performed by all the waitresses. It was really really fun. All of our food was exquisite. The drinks were great. I highly recommend this place.

Our last night in phnom penh and our son who lives in the city took us here for our last evening dinner. There is a mystery to this place that is hard to figure out. The ladies are dressed beautifully and are quite friendly. We ordered several dishes (stayed away from the meat dishes) - yes they serve dog -... More

This chain was created to generate revenue for the dictatorship in North Korea, with 25% going directly to the family dynasty that holds power. Some branches have had to close down because so many of the staff attempted to escape and flee the repressive regime.

If there is a Pyongyang Restaurant in the city I'm visiting, I eat there. The young ladies are extremely talented musicians and dancers and they pretty and nice. They may struggle with communication as they do not speak English. I spoke to them in my limited Mandarin. The menu is extensive but many people make the mistake of ordering Chinese... More

If you have a spare evening in Phnom Penh don't miss a visit to North Korea! This unusual restaurant serves Korean favorites followed by a vivid floorshow. Operated by a department of the North Korean regime, the restaurant provides a source of hard currency, a venue for propaganda and possibly more nefarious activities that benefit the DPRK. The large banqueting... More
