For some authentic Indian spices & ingredients for your next Indian Curry Masala cuisine project I recommend Patel Bros located off the Fairfax Boulevard in the City of Fairfax.

I bought some items in bulk and was not able to use it. SO I wanted them to take it back (just like any other grocery store in US). They give me a hard time about it. After a long argument I threatened to call police then they agreed to let me buy other items for the amount. hrow

All of there vegetable and fruits so stale when you take them home you have to throw away more than half of it.

Don't shop here till management changes.

Make sure you are good with others then others will be good to you. It is not a one side thing it is both side thing. Running a store with all imported stuff and fluctuating demand is not easy thing. I think availability is more important then quality standards of 70 different people.

Worst place to buy the items, specially the curry puff and samosa look inside before eating. All the fungus.

apart from this watch your CC statements. They charge twice

Cheated with pricing and won't take stuff back as guy already swiped my card. They stacked boxes in a way that lower one was on top and you could not see the ones at the bottom. The guy with lots of gold chains around his neck at counter was rude

I decided to visit this store on my trip to the DC area. I live about 4 hours away and was somewhat concerned about the negative reviews. By contrast to the experiences of the other reviewers, I personally had a pleasant experience at this store. The selection is good and the prices are reasonable. The clerks were friendly and priced and bagged the groceries correctly. They even took the groceries to my car. The only negative with regards to this store is that it is too small for the amount of stuff that they carry, the aisles are very narrow and it is difficult to move around, particularly when there are other shoppers around. Also, there are no carts (which probably would not work in this small store) and so if you are buying a lot of stuff (as we did) you will need multiple baskets.

Pros: selection, prices

Cons: store too small for the items they carry

Personally I don't like this store because of the employes bahave. These people are rude and proudy. They don't think that they are surving customer but they ruling t ocustomer like Palikea Bazar in Delhi. They always tried to cheat to customer. I have visited several times and never return with satisfaction. Now I decided not to go there anymore.

As i have read all the following reviews i felt very sad and i thought to write on these. I am customers for these stores since ten years and i never get any problem. Yeah i agree that there is long queue and they do fast but to cut the line not to charge double. Following people has something wrong with themselves. I think for following people our indian merchant are suitable. And these IDIOT people should scale first themseveles then scale for the stores.

I concur with other reviews. You got to be careful with these folks. They got sticky fingers. Also they are very rude. The only reason I am here because you can more variety.

I agree with some reviews here. The store managers deliberately charge you more than the items you purchase while they portray they have low prices compared to their competitors. This way they make more money. I wonder why they have god's idol on their desk, if they cheat customers. I have seen my friends being overcharged too. The sheet they provide doesn't list items only the price. This way they are free to fool their customers taking advantage of the long queue waiting for billing.They have also increased the price by 2 quarters recently on most items. Most importantly the managers are rude. I would give this store - (minus 5) stars if there was a negative scale.

I used to be a regular shopper until another Indian store opened right next door but I still think Patel shop had lower prices.... and they have more than doubled their store size by acquiring the next door shop and breaking the wall in between... I wud like to mention is the fact that they honor the customers beyond shop timings... twice I went there on sunday night 8:40PM and 9:05PM respectively, and thought their closing hour is 8PM on Sunday, they keep patiently serving the customers who walk in late

watch out, they don't bag all groceries you paid for. That's how they make more money. Two of my items , that i paid for , the bagger, looks like owner's relative, did not bag it. Infact he hide it under the groceries bags.

This shop sets an exanple of what a normal indian expects a shop to be. This has everything for an indian from Kashmir to Cape comorin. Everything is availble at a nominal cost and is very fresh and clean, which is also very important.

PROS: Everything
CONS: nothing

The place is painfully small to shop around- I mean everything is on shelves along the walls of the store with a central area with veggies and greens in one half and confectionaries in another. Although prices are great and one can buy in bulk, trip to the store is not fun.

We go to this place for most of our Indian grocery needs as they have lowest prices around. Wish we had other choices though. This place is very small and is a pain to shop. The owner is very rude at times and he has no customer service skills. He overcharges you at times if you are not watchful as the whole process of ringing up is manual.
