They can't call them Bangladeshi restaurants as people would not go (not sure what that would mean). LOL.
lol. I gather calling themselves Indian would present a wider appeal compared to Bangladeshi. However, if a locale is in need of a very exotic ethnic restaurant, Bangladeshi it is.

Bangladesh is just interesting in general. It's the most densely populated large country on Earth. Nothing else even comes close. Imagine half of the population of the US living in an area the size of Iowa. That's Bangladesh

My closest encounter with Bangladesh was after surviving a horrible (hygeine, dirty bathroom, smell) Pakistan Airlines flight.. we were arriving at the gate at JFK airport and I remember thinking "what a horrible experience" and I looked out and a dirty Bangladesh Airlines plane was next to us and I thought.. okay, it could have been worse. LOL.
I live in Washington DC, quite a lot of people here do know of Dhaka. The rest of the country, I'm not too sure.
