I drive 20+ miles to get my (Desi) grocery from this place even though I have options available less than half the distance. This is the cleanest, well organized grocery store in Raleigh, Cary and Durham area that I know. I know the gentleman who owns this place. He started one in Cary with same name but that place is is going down the tube by the day. They have no more customer regard and respect. Their cashier's will not even talk to you. Here, I got genuine attention as a customer and that is for everyone who walks in this place (I'm not special) but I feel so everytime I come here. I highly recommend this place.

To be honest this a great Indian grocery store. But not a world food as sign say. I was looking for Latin food but I felt bad after run the whole store and realized was a Indian food(not offence just need to be more specific about the store) I give you 5 start for nice good store and amount or diferent product

Very helpful staff and the store smells wonderful as soon as you step in from all the wonderful products. My husband and I stopped in and loved it so much we just had to bring in his mother. Not only do they have food products and beverages, they also have kitchen and household supplies and beauty products. Highly recommend anyone stops in here for rare goods not available in regular grocery stores.

This market has so many of the items I thought that I would have to order on Amazon or Etsy. Nice change to buy world market items locally. Great place, yummy SAMOSAS, and nice people.

Everything you need without having to go to Morrisville. The produce department could be better, but I'm guessing the foot traffic is pretty low for that.

I love to buy bulk ingredients for dahl and rice or curry spices here. Also pappadum, Chutney, Indian Snacks frozen goods, all sorts of other tasty foods. It reminds me of back in England where we have many shops like this. They also carry some UK chocolate, as well as the Indian dessert and cookies. Also they have vegetables which is useful when you are in a hurry.

Love this market; lots of South Asian products. Lots of dry goods, frozen items, and some fresh produce. Everything is very affordable and the store is clean and organized. Staff are polite, helpful, and English speaking staff members are present if you need any help.

Labels sometimes are displaced and if you don't pay attention you might be paying more than you are supposed to! Otherwise, very nice people and an amazing range of items.

Very nice not-that-little Indian store with an awesome selection of products. Lots of dry products, spices, rice. Lots of frozen meals & products. Nice selection of exotic products (from a US perspective). Their produce selection is a little limited, but they have the ones hard to find. Very clean store, including the bathroom. Very nice & knowledgeable staff.

I had such a good experience shopping here for any South Asian dishes that I wanted to cook. It had everything I needed when I wanted to cook chicken tikki masala & spicy curry. This place also has Jasmine Rice, which grocery stores like Wegman’s, Harris Teeter, & Food Lion do not sell. It is generally high-quality white rice from Thailand & it was about $20 to purchase a single 20-lb bag; it is more affordable than Li Ming’s Global Mart, where on average, it costs about $25-35 per 20 lb bag of Jasmine Rice.

Interesting store, had never entered. I thought I would find items from many countries since the store is called Around the World, but no! it's actually 98% Indian stuff. But it was interesting anyway.

A nice Indian market. Although it's smaller than their location on Hillsborough Street -- which has been mysteriously "temporarily closed" for several months, now -- this location has a great assortment of prepared Indian staples. I wish they had a better selection of produce, but they're working with limited space. Their choices for rice worked for me. And I discovered that this Durham location takes less time to drive to from my home in North Raleigh. It's right off of Exit 278 on I-40, so I got there quickly via I-540 to I-40. This will probably be my regular stop for Indian groceries even after/if the Raleigh location reopens.
