Treat yourself to authentic Indian food while travelling

When you stop for petrol or a toilet break on a long trip, you do not expect to find a fully functioning Indian restuarant at your convenience. However, this is exactly what you do find if you stop at the BP service station along the Augusta Highway, Snowtown.
If you are not in the mood for Indian food, you can order hot chips, chicko rolls and standard takeaway. They also had a range of cakes and sandwiches, but I could look at nothing else once I had seen the Indian food. The price was good too. A full plate in the city usually costs around $12-14 - I believe I got my plate for around $7. They also had all the classic Indian favourites - Lamb Rogan Josh, which I ordered, Masalas and Butter Chicken.
The roadhouse is small and multi-purpose, but there is a small area where you can sit in comfort. This is excellent for a very hot or rainy day when the traveller might be seeking respite from the weather. And yes, you can get petrol - they seemed priced competitive for the highway at $1.26 c/l the day when we passed through.
