Kalustyan's has been invaluable to me in providing spices and ingredients for Indian, Indonesian, Persian, and even Korean cooking. You can get a proper marmalade, chutney, lime pickle, or box of Typhoon here. I get Persian sour limes, bulgogi bbq spices, and my favorite Applewood Smoked Salt, which can make a vegetarian dish taste like the South incarnate. There's a cafe upstairs for quick South Asian noshes. Don't forget to buy some bitters for tonight's cocktails.

I honestly think i first fell in love with Indian food after coming here and not some restaurant. The spices here are unreal and provide a flavors beyond my imagination. This place gets 100 thumbs up!

This place is the final word in Indian spices. It's where the Indian chefs and grandmothers shop, and there's no better boast than that.

Work in the door of this compact spice shop & I dare you not to leave with bags of some the freshest spices & ingredients around.

Don't use their online store – Worst service ever. They'll send you an email with no info about your order. They'll ship it to the wrong address. When you try to address or correct their error, they are hostile and rude. So before you think of sending their spices to other states...think again, and forget it.

SUPERB! Must for all mediterranean food lovers – Kalustyan's is a must for all europeans, middle easterners and ANYbody who enjoys mediterranean that type of cooking. Kalustyan's has the greatest selection of spices, feta cheese and other mediterranean delicacies like lahmajun, humus, etc.

one of NYC's jewels – Whatever your culinary needs, this place has it. Spices, nuts, sauces, rice, etc. It's all here. But don't just come for that. Amazing food as well. Sandwiches, breads, cheeses, soups... ok, I've made myself hungry. I have to go there now.

Simply amazing – I came to the city from Spain and I was searching for places to buy spices and herbs. Somebody told me about Kalustyans so I went there. Incredible. If you're looking for a rare herb you'll find it there.

One of my favourites in NY.

A FABULOUS Find for gourmets & gourmands – Do NOT Miss this culinary shopping treasure in amongst the other neighborhodd Indian restaurants and grocers. Kalustyan's stocks rare (and not-so-rare) spices, herbs, Asian and Mediterranean food products, home-made flatbreads and pastries. (7 kinds of baklava) There is a reasonably priced cafe upstairs selling falafel, hummus sandwiches, grape leaves, olives, feta and more. You can even find hair dye and beauty products (think Henna...) from Indian and Pakistan. This place is terrific!

spice world – It's fun to wander among the nuts, dried berries and chutneys, but when I used to work near here, my favorite thing was ordering falafel in back (now it's upstairs). The older gent behind the counter is a real character who can crack up everyone in line. The falafel's great, but the mujudara (an aromatic lentil dish) is even better. Also try the pickles and olives.
