i enjoyed walking along Devon Avenue and seeing various cultures represented. We asked a few people about recommendations on a restaurant and most steered us to Sabri Nihari. The food was delicious. We enjoyed exploring the various shops where we were welcomed warmly.

I went with a group of friends who are from India, and it made it so much more interesting. The food was good, I was amazed at the size of the dosa! There are a lot of sari shops, all pretty much the same, but very expensive. Also gold jewelry. My friends loved Patel's for grocery shopping.

A couple of miles from downtown you feel like any place in India. Plenty of good restaurants and shops. This is not a classic tourist destination hence everything is authentic.

A very location for Shopping and eating all things related to India. A very busy street during Weekends with parking being bit of a headache.

Strolling west of Ridge is the closest many of us will come to visiting the Indian subcontinent -- although in addition to the Pakistani, Indian and Bangladeshi shops and restaurants you'll find Russian, Croatian, Iraqi and more. You could spend hours.

Great ethnic shopping area, lots of variety. Just a couple of words of warning for those who are not familiar with the area. The parking is tight, just like many shopping areas in the City. The traffic can be horrible. Remember to pack your patience if you go, you'll probably need it.

I have been married for many years to a lady from South Asia, and lived in India for a number of years. For us, visiting Devon Avenue is like visiting a "home away from home" in terms of interacting with people, for wonderful food, and shopping, too. We make a point of going through there every time we pass through... More
