As authentic as it gets!
Namaste! Having travelled through India myself it's becoming a weekly tradition to pick up food here and relive my memories from travelling through such an eclectic country. Food is outstanding and service is always super friendly. Love it.


For Indian curries this this the place to go in Bendigo



Excellent food! Excellent service. Very personalised service -remember from previous visits


Excellent. Had a great meal.


The most delicious, subtle flavours with just the right amount of heat - which never overwhelms your ability to taste. Service is friendly and very good. A real asset to Bendigo, and definitely worth many visits!

Love the food. It's fantastic. It's a must if you're passing Bendigo. We do. Take away reheats well. We travel from St. Arnaud on a regular bases just for the food. Beef Bhuna is a must, Lamb Saag is one of the best I've had and you can't have Indian without a Garlic Naan. AND the Samosa's are also great, the homemade pastry is again, one of the best. Do enjoy the next time your in Bendigo.


Love it!!


Delicious food. I've enjoyed every meal I've had here so far, and I've had a lot! Love it!




Fantastic food! Highly recommend. Wonderful service and a great variety of options for vegans. Yum!


Thank God Bendigo has Food O'Clock! The menu is excellent and has something for everyone. We've never had a bad meal there. Their vegetarian dishes are that good I am considering giving up meat! The team at Food O'Clock are really friendly and helpful. I can't recommend this restaurant enough!


Absolutely delicious food, and the service is outstanding. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. Exceptional value for money!



I have tried nearly every dish , I cannot decide which is my favourite as they are all wonderful. and the personal service make you feel like one of the family . Simply a wonderful dinning experience . JM Bendigo
