I must disagree with the other two reviewers: I have shopped across the street at Taj Mahal for years and have found the products to have expired dates, or to have the expiration date blacked out. I went to this little store on a whim and was pleasantly surprised: the prices were awesome! The store was clean and bright. The owner brought me a basket and was very courteous. I found everything I needed, with expiration date listed 2012, 2013 and as I was shopping on Saturday 7/31/2010, this was a great boon! I bought many things in the comfort of knowing that they were safe and healthy and with a long shelf life. The selection of spices, teas and condiments was exceptional. I was mainly impressed with the large number of shelf ready entrees which were better than any i have found at other places, and one brand in fact has a standing "buy two, get one free" offer! So I am able to purchase a weeks worth or more of delicious vegetarian entrees for much less than I would spend eating "junk" for lunch when I forget to pack a lunch. I bought many sweets which were fresh and delectable. The lady at the counter was helpful and friendly and when I said in parting, see you next time, she smiled broadly, nodded and gave me thumbs-up! How could anyone go wrong here? Between this and Sara food store on Sherman, I can get everything I need and they are both so close and have the most friendly, helpful service. I am so glad that I found this store. Yes it is tiny and cozy, but everything in it is a gem. Reminds me of stores back in the sixties, when us gringos were just discovering Indian music, food, and culture, before everything became so developed. I was extremely happy with my experience and I will shop here forever, now that I am aware of it!
