Large store selling various things needed for Indian cooking. Things that are not found elsewhere include religious icons and cooking pots and pans. A small chat corner in the back of the store sells delicious samosas and other snacks. Very friendly!
Very, very large selection of South Asian specific produce and other foods. The store is large and has various small stores inside it (ie cell phones, restaurant, gift shop, etc). A meat shop is located next door that caters to the customers of Subzi Mandi. Staff is very discriminative towards non-South Asians.
Very cute store that sells a large variety of things including prepackaged foods, tupperware, storage facilites, stationary, Hello Kitty goods, etc. Prices are good (mostly around 1-2$ for items) and the quality is reasonable. Not all the staff can speak Japanese. By far the best place in the area to buy Japanese items at a low price.
Wondeful selection and caring staff. Wide variety of packaged goods including spices, mixes, ice cream, noodles, etc. Small selection of Japanese produce as well. The grandmother that owns the place makes good bento boxes that are available for sale. Japanese and Korean dramas and movies are also available for rental.
Good selection of produce for ethnic Asian cooking. Large variety of meats and other seafoods (not available at normal markets). Check the expiration dates of packaged products on the shelves; sometimes they are expired. Also has a small video rental area that features films from China, Taiwan, HK, Korea, and Japan. Recommended only for produce shopping.
Large selection of movies for sale and rental. Also have many soundtracks and S. Asian pop music CDs for sale. Atlantic Video is also one of the only places in the area that sells posters of old and recent films. Good quality, but slightly expensive.
By far the largest collection of South Asian films (in many languages: Hindi, Telugu, Urdu, Bengali, Malayalam, etc.) availabe for sale and rental. Both VHS and DVDs. Half of the store is devoted to South Asian groceries. The staff is not very pleasant, but are likely to offer their recommendations on which movies are good to watch and which are family friendly.
Funasia is a very much needed resource for the South Asian community in the Dallas area. Features ilms that are current releases back in India. Also has a restaurant that is quite tasty. Wednesdays are recommended days to go watch a movie because of the buy-one-get-one-free ticket deals. Movie timings can be found on their website at www.funasia.net
Excellent store for more non-traditional toys. Learning Express caries many toys that have a more educational side to them. A large collection of Thomas the Tank Engine, Hello Kitty, puzzles, Legos, Lincoln Logs, etc. The staff is not very friendly.
This cute little hole in the wall antique store has a large selection of American and European antiques from various eras. The store also features a (hidden) post office in the back where one can take care of postal needs. The staff is very friendly and likes to chat with you.
