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 a bit standoffish with westerners, and they seated us in back, but one did come over to chat briefly (and probably see what our deal was).

The prices are higher than in Cambodia, we wound up paying $18 per person (we were six people) but we had a lot of beer and way more food than we could eat. Then again, they don't charge admission, so the price includes the performance.

The performances are delightfully bizarre. Kids would love it.

went here for the show and dinner and, in some ways, its quite an experience. by luck we arrived right before the show. food was overpriced but the show was free. the food was standard korean, cold buckweat noodles, sweet and sour pork ribs, etc, and was pretty decent. the show however is the main attraction. its bizzare, like an 80s japanese pop music performance interspersed with random mini acts. the girls sing, play mozart on the violin, do some traditional dances etc, all choreographed to strobe lights and disco balls. they pretend to be happy and laugh the whole time, but you can tell they are not. in fact its known they are basically slaves and going to the restaurant is considered unethical by some, so three stars. im american and went to see north koreans with my bare eyes. one of the servers touched my hand during the meal. interesting.

The waitresses are also the entertainers and talented entertainers in that....they sing...they play instruments. ...they entertained us at our table...

The food is a variety of North Korean and Chinese so you take your pick

The highlight is the entertainment which starts at 730pm so go early if you want to catch this session.... i don't know if there is one more session later on

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 as waitress, poor girls.
