Dinner at Halal Restaurant Warrnambool


It is almost time for dinner. Kroit is a very small town with population just about 2000. There is not much eating places at Koroit. With no big supermarket like Coles either. So to have dinner we travel a bit far to another town Warrnambool which is about 18 km away. We reached there after about 20 minutes drive.

There is a halal restaurant in Warrnambool - India Gate - serving Indian food.
