Little India was Patel Grocers before. After a split, Patel is in Bloomington and they renamed this store Little India. They have a store called Super Meat Market, where they will sell you EXPIRED frozen stuff. Once you bring it home and thaw, your neighbor will run out of their home because of the stink it raises. It is frozen AND ROTTEN.
I challenge you to find anything in that fish store ( or with most food items they sell in their grocery store) that has expiry dates printed. YOU WON'T FIND IT.
We had the same experience. We bought some totally rotten ( but frozen rohu fish). And once we came back, they refused to exchange and refund. Their excuse: I didn't bring the bad fish soon enough for them to resell it to some other (unfortunate) customer. What a logic. They qualify for the 2012 Presidential Debate, hands down.
We have been a customer with them for 10+ years. Once the owner Nayeem (the only sensible guy in the whole store) is not in the store, his brain-dead brothers deal with the customers with Iron Fist, and speak to them once in a while, as and when they get a chance to catch their breath from incessant Paan Chewing.
A disgrace in the name of business.

Pros: Nothing!!!

Cons: Everything except the Pros

.

I agree with one of the reviewers. It is very expensive. If you compare the price with the grocery stores in other states then it is extremely expensive. It is expensive even compared to the nearby stores. I would recommend going to close by Indian grocery stores. Parking is also one of the main concerns. I would not go there next time. It is not the only Indian grocery store in the city and consumers today have choices.I am not sure if the Indian eating place called Hyderabad House is owned by Patel grocery, which is attached to the building-is the worst Indian eating place in the US!

I am not sure if the indian eating place called Hyderabad House is owned by Patel grocery, which is attached to the building. I along with my friend decided to try out that place after shopping at Patel grocery and boy that is very expensive and low grade service. There was no such thing called service. The supposedly manager was almost sleeping on his chair and customers had to get their own water including silverwares. There was nobody for the refills as well. As being a student in the hospitality industry, I could tell from my experience that the food was cooked in the morning and they would use the same food throughout the day. If they ran out of something then they would not make more as they ran out of one time and that was the answer I got. I noticed that some food items were placed on warmer which is a good news but guess what the bad news is??? The warmers were not turned on!!!!! So they were cheating customers!!! I dont know if they were trying to save electricity as warmers do consume good amount of power. I paid $9 for lunch buffet and it was the worst food and service in my life. The funny thing is, they even had a place on the receipt for tips. I am curious to know who would tip them for such kind of food and service.

Please do a favor to yourself and eat at Mc Donalds or any other fast food rather than eating at Hyderabad House!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: good selection of items

Cons: expensive and the worst indian eatery

In comparison to several cities around the US, Patel Groceries is a monopoly for Indian groceries. Groceries especially are unreasonably expensive. Movie rentals are costly. Even with few competitors in its neighborhood, Patel Groceries does not offer any deals. The one thing to the stores advantage is its cleanliness, spacious shopping atmosphere as well as the number of varieties offered for Indian groceries. You will like the shopping experience but not the prices as much.

Patel Groceries sells a mix of asian food. It is mostly indian and pakistani cuisine. It includes spices, condiments, cereals, pickles, even ready to eat, micro ovenable food packets. Most of the selection is authentic indian, pakistani stuff .Prices are reasonable too. They also have a good selection of indian movies and TV serials ( both cassetes and dvds) that you can rent or buy. Personally I feel the dvds are costly to rent and this is the case all over minneapolis.

If you Indian groceries you can easily find it at this store. They carry all kinds of spices, lentils, etc. They frozen food selection is outstanding. Items are always in stock. They also carry kitchenware for specialized cooking. You can rent dvds and buy music too. They don't have a parking lot so finding a spot can hard sometimes.

PROS: quality and selection
CONS: parking
