In the audio, restaurant sounds like "restaurang". Is it the correct pronunciation?

Yes, it's a French loanword, and it's the closest that Norwegian gets to the original pronunciation (source). Unlike Swedish, Norwegian hasn't changed the word's spelling to the arguably more intuitive "restaurang".
