Why did you decide to come to Japan to study?
Some relatives lived in Tokyo and since I was interested in Japan I decided to study abroad.
How was learning Japanese?
Even though kanjis were very difficult, I studied hard and pass the JLPT N2.
How was studying in ISI Japanese Language School?
In class there were people from different countries so it was fun. I still cherish the memories from the after graduation party.
During lessons we learnt deeply about grammar and honorific expressions in Japanese, which now are very useful for work.
From your restaurant, what do you recommend?
Butter chicken with a lot of cream (1,250 JPY) and, from Nepalese cuisine, Dalba is really delicious (1,400 JPY).
What do you think is important for doing business?
Preparing an early plan of what you want to do.
From now onwards, what are your objectives?
There is a lot of things but right now I would like to do Bakery Management.
