Worldwide Nepalese Restaurant Database Gathers more than 500 Restaurants Abroad
Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) and the Embassy of Nepal in London are leading an effort to create a database of all Nepalese restaurants in Europe and the rest of the world. This effort is part of Visit Nepal 2020 campaign and making Nepalese Restaurants in Europe as tourism promotion hubs and promote Visit Nepal 2020 campaign through them. On behalf of NTB and the Embassy of Nepal in London, Chief Coordinator of NTB’s “Experience Nepal - Cuisine and Culture” campaign, Mr. Deepesh Man Shakya is coordinating this effort. Mr. Shakya said more than 500 Nepali restaurants, most of them in Europe, have been entered in the database. The database is hosted in “Experience Nepal - Cuisine and Culture” website.
NTB and Embassy of Nepal in London are conducting various programs and events in Europe, including Visit Nepal 2020 Lottery, in an effort to reach out to potential tourists in Europe directly, to contribute towards the Visit Nepal 2020 campaign target of 2 million tourists. An estimate shows, there are more than 700 Nepalese Restaurants all over Europe with cumulative annual customers to be more than one million. Customers in these restaurants are predominantly those who love Nepal and have some affinity towards the country. They will be more likely to go on holiday to Nepal.
