DINING out options in Bargara are continuing to grow, with a new Indian restaurant set to open its doors at Bargara Central.

While the contracts need to be formalised, the NewsMail understands the owners of Riverfront Indian Curry and Continental Cafe in Noosaville are expanding, and will open the new curry house with seating options to extend to outdoors.

Positioned between the Golden Casket newsagency and Intotech Computers, the restaurant will fill the shop space which had remained vacant for five years.

It won't be the only new eatery to move into Bargara Central, Eagle Boys moved in last month and a doughnut shop is also in the works to open between Cafe Caprice and Mode hairdressers.

With Catalonia, Red Chilli Thai, John's Asian Delight and Boss Seafood and Sushi all added to the Bargara dining scene in the last 18 months, diners are becoming spoilt for choice when it comes to picking up a takeaway or enjoying a meal out.

Bargara Progress Association president Mick Brennan said new businesses were a win-win for everyone, with existing restaurants and accommodation facilities benefiting because visitors to the region were encouraged to stay longer.

"The more places to go and things to see, the more visitors are likely to stay an extra night or two," he said.

"When there are only a couple of places people leave once they've 'been there, done that'."

Mr Brennan said having more dining options in Bargara also encouraged residents to stay in Bargara and spend their money locally.

"It's great to have different options to take visitors to and it means not having to drive into Bundaberg," he said.

Red Chilli Thai owners Mark Church and wife Juthathip are thrilled business has exceeded expectations and allows them to expand as customers come from near and far.

"We've expanded from seating for 16 and now have seating for 50," Mr Church said.
