IT'S perhaps fitting that the Om Namah Indian Grocery Store fronts the Pacific Hwy between Harbour Dr and Park Ave.

Its owners, Sonal Arora and Somnath Bhasker, made the decision to the relocate to the city after a driving holiday from their home in Sydney in 2011.

"Coffs Harbour was really welcoming and warm, with beautiful scenery around. That's the day we decided it's our new home," Sonal said.

They started their 100% Australian-owned business in December 2012.

"Initially we faced a lot of difficulties in getting the Indian groceries we needed, so we decided to open a store so that our local community can also enjoy authentic Indian food.

"We are open seven days a week 'til late in the evening. We offer one-stop shop for all your cooking needs. We bring to you the authentic range of Indian, Sri Lankan, Pakistani, Persian and African food products at very reasonable and competitive prices."

Sonal is not only a keen cook, but she is also very happy to share her recipe secrets and techniques.

"If you are hosting a party and want to do a chicken dish, we can not only suggest you one which will suit the group, but also will give you the complete written recipe with the demonstration on one-to-one basics.

"We sell ready-to-eat product lines as well as spices to cook from scratch.

"We also carry a wide range of Indian cooking equipment, Indian jewellery, Ayurvedic and 100% herbal products like toothpaste, soap, hair oils, shampoos, cosmetics and lots more.

"Our team at Om Namah believe in not just selling the product but also the knowledge that we carry from our home of origin."

Om Namah Indian Grocery Store is at 65 Grafton St, Coffs Harbour.
