Indian Restaurants in Ballarat

Discover Ballarat's Indian restaurants

Ballarat is one of the best cities in Victoria's central highlands to sample authentic Indian food. Perhaps one reason is due to the city's close ties to India, with the local university opening a campus in New Delhi just a few years ago, playing host to students from Nepal and India. This international connection is reflected in the city's Indian dining scene, which is no surprise considering just how popular Ballarat's Indian restaurants are.
