He has experience working in several famous restaurants in Iran's capital, Tehran, such as Hani and Nayeb. After finishing school, he attended many food workshops and courses. In particular,he studied Hotel Housekeeping in Hotel Evin and successfully got his diploma. 

In 2009 he moved to Kyoto, Japan. Later he held several jobs in Persian & Indian restaurants in both Kyoto and Tokyo. During this time he also learned Japanese and English languages and now speaks both fluently. 

Finally he opened Arash's Kitchen in 2013 in Kyoto. Due to his hard work and talent, Arash's Kitchen is now very popular and among the top three restaurants in Kyoto for the past two years. [Ref: TripAdvisor]
