First, this is not at The Ascot Hotel. And, it does not serve alcohol. Food is generous and the service is good, though the English is not very good. We went on a Friday and the show started at 8pm and lasted about 20 mins....More

I could not believe it when my local buddy brought me there. Unassuming place but the food was fantastic. Sublime north korean food (milder in spiciness and less salty compared to typical south korean food). Female graduates from north korean performing arts university are sent...More
