Asia Lounge, the first Bangladeshi-owned upscale restaurant, opens in Turkey
This is the first time a Bangladeshi entrepreneur has opened such a restaurant in Turkey.
This unique eatery is the brainchild of a Bangladeshi student, Omar Faruk Helali, who is studying in Turkey on a scholarship given by the Turkish government aside from being the general secretary of the Bangladeshi Students’ Association in Turkey.
The restaurant opened on March 9 at the heart of Istanbul, near the historical Fatih Mosque, in the presence of a large number of Bangladeshi immigrants.
The inauguration drew a large number of local and foreign students, business owners, visitors, Turkish nationals, and community leaders.
“This is a long-cherished dream to demonstrate the generosity and hospitality of our sub-continent in the incredible country of Turkey,”
Helali, the chief executive officer of Asia Lounge said, adding that
“hopefully, it will grow into a melting pot of cultures along with members of the Bangladeshi community.”
The restaurant’s interior, art, and hospitality will portray Bangladeshi culture and tradition.
After its official opening, the Asian Lounge has attracted a large number of visitors, Turkish nationals, and Bangladeshi immigrants.
