    Hi,
    dude if you really want to open/ own a restaurant, dont go for Hotel management.. Rather meet a consultant who can give u a real idea about how to open up..or join some good MBA/PGDM college which will give u enough or adequate idea about how to open a business or restaurant in ur case..
