All Vegetarian Indian Grocery and Chaat (spicy snack) Place
Grocery/Bakery/Deli, General Store
The specialty of the store is that it is 100% vegetarian and carries no meat-based products. You get all sorts of Indian food items, vegetables, snacks, sweets etc.
The store also houses a chaat cafe. Chaat is a variety of sweet, tangy and spicy fast food snacks. The best chaat you can have is from street vendors in India but what you get at India plaza comes quite close and is very hygienic. The menu includes samosas, paani puri, bhel puri, papri chaat and lots more.
India Plaza also carries CDs, jewelry, cookbooks, household items etc. plus 8,000 movie titles (in various regional languages) that are available for rent at 99 cents per day at India Plaza.
India Plaza has been featured in the December 2004 issue of Arizona Food Industry Journal. The journal extensively reviews the Indian store and calls it a 'One-Stop-Shop' that captures the Indian culture and community. The journal lists location and strong support from the Indian community as the two major factors that contribute to India Plaza's success.
