The restaurant is a front for the Korean Mob. The restaurant can be accessed during the mission Dining Out and when Niko Bellic takes friends or girlfriends out. During the mission Dining Out, Niko Bellic is sent to the restaurant by Gambetti Family Don, Jon Gravelli, to kill Korean gangster Kim Young-Guk. Brucie Kibbutz, Dwayne Forge and Roman Bellic are fond of this restaurant.
- Mr. Fuk's Rice Box was likely intended to be a Chinese restaurant. This is evidenced by the signs inside that read "Authentic Szechuan and Peking cuisine". However, due to its location and being used as a front for the Korean Mob, it was likely changed to a Korean restaurant during development, with interiors being unchanged. The word "Fuk" does not exist in Korean phonetics. It does exist as a Chinese character (福) meaning "fortune", further suggesting that it was intended to be a Chinese restaurant.
- "Fuk" is a reference to the curse word "fuck", but it is pronounced "fook" by Jon Gravelli.
- "Rice Box" is a slang term for an East Asian woman's vagina.
- The restaurant might be based on the real-life Pyongyang restaurant chain, a North Korean international restaurant chain that is said to be where the North Korean government operates money laundering schemes. The in-game restaurant is used as a front for the Korean Mob which originates from North Korea.
