Best Indian food in Bendigo. We often get take away and can highly recommend it. All my friends, family and colleagues agree it’s the best! We love the Malai Kofta and dal Makhani

I have never been let down by this place. Not only is the food prepared so well, and is beyond mouth-watering, but the owners/management are beyond lovely. No matter who I talk to, nothing but lovely things to say. They are warm, friendly, accommodating and...kind. They were very thorough and proper with Covid regulations to protect themselves, their customers and their staff and not many businesses are doing this so good on them. If you want Indian, this is where you go. End of story. Hugeee fan right here!More

An all around amazing place with approachable staff who responded to our every need without a second thought. The food was the best thing we’d eaten during our whole stay. Everything came to the table hot, fresh and faultless.

I have being to food o clock for the first time. Didn’t book the restaurant was full. We were 6 people we got a fantastic sitting . In few minutes a staff came and started taking order, service was amazing.Butter chicken was so yummy feels...like home in India . Goat malts in the mouth. Beef was spicy and goes well with naan. Very soft beef my kids loved it. Best experience I ever had in my life I will give food o clock (5 star) Keep up the good serve well done I will come back again and again.More

I've been to this restaurant a few times with my friends and family and it is one our most fave places to eat at! The food is excellent but the amazing customer service is what makes the experience even better. They are always so warm...and welcoming. Even during these hard times, the precautions taken always make us feel safe eating in. The owners make us feel like family every time we go in and look after us. The food is just divine! A must for every food lover!More

First visit to the restaurant today with family. We travelled from Melbourne. Absolutely appalling customer service. Staff were very kurt, unfriendly and unwelcoming. I witnessed an incident where a female staff spoke very rudely to a family who came with their kids. The female staff...had the audacity to tell the family rudely, "I don't have a problem. If you want to dine on that is fine or else you can leave." I mean there is a way to talk politely to your customers and negotiate such things. Customer service is nowhere near the mark. I strongly discourage people from attending this restaurant that is full of unwelcoming, rude, Kurt and unfriendly staff. There is no proper washroom inside the restaurant. You have to go outside for that.More

We thank you just to witness. Being a small place we always recommend to Book Ahead, even if you book on the spot and we give you a table you need to mention exact numbers including your kids and if your need a high chair...More

When we said we fancied Indian for dinner every single local said to go to Food o’clock which I thought was a strange name for a curry restaurant! I’m so glAd we did as we had a wonderful dinner and I’m very fussy about my...curry and this place passed with flying colours . The staff were very helpful and unobtrusive, the place was spotless and the food scrumptious. The samosas were the best I’ve ever eaten and we followed with goat and a mix of vegetarian and meat dishes . The price was right and this unpretentious eatery will be a constant on our frequent trips to BendigoMore

We were attracted to this place as there were a large number of Indian diners in there. So glad we did as the food is awesome and the service is second to none. Highly recommend it. No frills, just good food.

Fabulous food from this restaurant. Our meals were ordered by our family as a surprise & they were promptly delivered to our home. Fabulous curries & rice, thanks guys for sumptuous food.

Main courses tasted very "artificial"and the amount of meat and prawns were meagre. We won't order from here again.
