This 3 or 4 block street is the majority of all of the Indian restaurants, shops and travel all in one place. I have been to 5 restaurants and a couple of the stores and they have anything you are looking for from India. The only real drawback is that there is very limited parking, and the street parking is... More

I visited Fresh Farms grocery and wandered around in amazement at all the choices. They make juices out of pretty much whatever fruits and vegetables they have available. I... More

Adorable little avenue to visit in Chicago. It is full of different little Indian restaurants, shops, and electronics. Basically like an Little India. There are many things that you can get from here instead of spending money and going on a trip.

It was interesting to see the colors on the street and the huge number of Asian population. I even saw some women in Sariees. I must say that I felt the place was... More

Welcome to Mumbai! When I visited it I felt that I was in India again. The street is very dirty and the most part of the restaurants look very authentic (not in a good way). I enjoyed to spend some time in Devon Street. I bought some instant Gulab jamun and spices in Indian supermarkets.

Probably also little Bangladesh as well. Check out Patel brothers food store for authentic sub-continent food items. Many buffet restaurants. Pick up a sari for the wife.
