From India, with love: New business opens in Kingaroy

MOVING to Australia from another country has the potential to bring a range of new opportunities.

That is exactly what the manager of Kingaroy's newest business Divine Flavours has been given, and she has grabbed them with both hands.

Originally from India, Rachna Sharma travelled to Australia in 2011.

She was based in Brisbane before moving to the South Burnett in 2016.

"Australia has lots of good opportunities," she said.

Ms Sharma, who previously worked for another restaurant in town, said she was excited about yesterday's opening of Kingaroy's newest business.

"It is exciting. It is a new opportunity," she said.

Besides the spicy food, patrons of the new Indian restaurant on Haly St will enjoy the impressive mural covering an entire wall.

"It's the Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the world," Ms Sharma said.

Before Divine Flavours moved in, the Haly St premises had been empty for several years.

In the lead-up to opening day, the manager said she had her work cut out for her.

"There was lots of work to do," Ms Sharma said.

"The walls, floors and kitchen all had to be done."
