Always a good selection of products and the owners are very kind and helpful. I've been shopping for my India groceries here since the last 5 years and am extremely happy with it.

It was my first foray into making an Indian dish, and the owner was more than kind in guiding me toward the right spices. More importantly, I got locked out of my car with a one year old baby and the owner did everything to make her and me comfortable while waiting for rescue, including lending me his cell phone and providing seats for us. I will be a forever fan!!

Nice desi store near southern Durham area. It was easily accessible and was on our commute. Good thing is it was organized properly to get a good shopping experience. I was able to get some of my pakistani cooking stuff. On a side note this store was larger than I expected.

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 and Ramen noodles, 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.

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. Above review was a long time ago. Now in July 2022. Things are still the same or just got better. Good varieties, reasonable prices, clean and of course full attention to every customer. Just happened to be this was second trip within 10 days. My cousin was visiting us and we took her there. She as a resident of Toronto also liked the cleanliness of this place. Once again 5+stars.

One of the best Indian stores, in the area. I got all the desi items, I was looking for, and the owners were super helpful and friendly.

Interesting Indian market. Good selection of raw ingredients for Indian cooking. Excellent selection.of ghee. A good bit of frozen prepared foods. Rather small selection of fresh fruit and veggies. If they had fresh (not frozen) prepared food this would have been 6 stars! Staff was very helpful as well.
