Okryu Restaurant was opened to the public in Juche 49(1960). Covering an area of 5 800 ㎡, the main building has over 2 200 seats.
In September Juche 77 (1988), it was rebuilt and expanded and thus divided into the main building and detached buildings. It was renovated in June 19, Juche 97 (2008).
Under the wise leadership and detailed instructions of Chairman Kim Jong Il, a delicacy house was newly built under its control in October Juche 99 (2010). As a result, the Okryu Restaurant has further developed into a public catering base for the popular masses.
It serves hundreds of kinds of dishes including Pyongyang cold noodle, a Korean specialty.
