Indian food is never a bad idea, and for the public of Australia, that logic rings much more true than in most places. In Geelong, and specifically in Belmont, great Indian food means Spice Cottage on the High Street, where they serve a range of curries, tandoori dishes and other favourites that the whole family can enjoy. If you’re looking for a place to spend your Friday evening, with a few pints and a proper feed for you and your mates, you can do a lot worse than Spice Cottage. We’d recommend the chole bhature, a chickpea curry with bread, or the Hyderabadi Biryani, a south Indian speciality consisting of chicken, spices and rice, served with a fresh cucumber yoghurt. Take a trip – and remember to book your table, as they do get busy – to Spice Cottage on the High Street in Belmont, just outside the centre of Geelong.
