I used to frequent this store a few years ago but not anymore. That doesnt mean something is wrong with the store. Earlier on, it used to be one of very very few stores to stock very authentic kerala grocery in the valley. Now, most of the other grocery stores carry the same inventory.
They have an awesome collection of Indian movies for rent though. Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi movies are abundant.
When you first step into this store, you will be appalled by the chaos and the disorganization but if you go tot he store a few times, you learn to find the right things while minimizing search time.
You can also subscribe to their online weekly ad which comes to you viz email and that shows what their weekly sale items are.
They sometimes have very good quality toys, clothes, furniture, linen, rugs etc at very affordable prices.
You will have to look past the chaos and confusion to find what you need.
PROS: Great prices, lots of variety
CONS: Completely chaotic
Most of things in this store are a dollar. Some of them are not. I mean, they are about $1.50 so its not really expensive. There are some items that I would definitely recommend form this store. They have some very nice disney charaster items in their store like little disney princess pretend play handbags, pencil boxes , stationary sets, notebooks with disney characters on them etc. The quality is not bad and since my daughter loves the disney princesses items, I find this an easy (very close to where I live) and affordable of buying her little things to surprise her, at times.
I love their stationary section with various art and craft items. Nice place to spend a few mins and buy a few inexpensive things.
Food is great. Service is good. Ambience is also good. I would recommend the Schezuan Eggplant . Though its slightly pricey, great place to go for dinner.
PROS: Very good food
Its a great place for a mid-afternoon snack. Their pastries are very good too. I love their Cauliflower buns and Vada pavs. They make great cakes for parties and weddings.
Great ambience and good food makes this place one of my favorites. Portions are small compared to other indian restaurants but I am not complaining coz the food is so delicious.
PROS: Great ambience, good food
Their food is very homely, not too many spices. They have vegan options. All the food is vegetarian. Their chappatis are excellent. You can refridgerate them for a week. They are soft and delicious.
They have the BEST south indian food. Their quality is consistently good. After they moved to their new location in Sunnyvale, there is more room. Service is quick and efficient. Food is the best in the valley.
PROS: lots of parking, GREAT food
CONS: very very crowded
I loved their grilled vegetables. We met with our friends here and it was a lot of fun. There is lots of room for people and its also kid friendly. Service is good too.
