I had a great experience buying spices at Mehar Chand and Sons. The staff was really helpful and informative and the spices were sealed really well, convenient for travel. Keep in mind there prices are fixed and they definitely cater to tourists. That said, it made for a pleasant stress-free shopping experience

Many tourist will be take by the guide to this shop when visit spice market. PLEASE NOTED THAT THIS SHOP FIX PRICE IS FOR TOURIST. Even their packaging is not worth for the money. The price for the Masala tea (Foil bag) 250g is around 700 INR that is very expensive. You can find some nice brand like Wagh Bakri... More

The spices in this shop were reportedly used in the Master Chef kitchens. The staff will tell you all about the spices and teas, including what countries you can bring them back through customs. A little hard to find in Chandni Chowk, Old Delhi, so recommend you get a rickshaw ride there to save you hours of roaming around back... More

We were taken to this Spice shop by our guide, in hindsight he must have been on a commission from them. Their prices are ridiculous and are 4-5 times more expensive than I pay in Indian Supermarkets in the UK. All of the spices we were shown were pre-packed and pre-mixed, not much different to average UK supermarket. Dis buy... More

We stopped at this charming spice shop on our rickshaw ride a year ago. I bought many spices, which I have totally loved using. I bought tea, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, and spices for butter chicken masala and chicken tikka. They were very helpful - I bought much more than I intended but now that I am back home I wish... More

The staff at Mehar Chand and Sons make the shop what it is today. In Delhi, where there are an abundance of wholesale spice shops next to each other, service and quality are the deciding factors to compare all of them. Mehar Chand and Sons has air conditioning and a very knowledgeable staff (Their english is impeccable). I would recommend... More

We visited this store during our rickshaw ride in the older part of Delhi. They said it was a Spice Street. We went into the store and it was very crowded with N.American tourists. A customer sales person very politely approached us and asked if we required help. He explained the shop had been there many years and that chefs... More

Great little shop to visit in the spice market. Very friendly, trip advisor plaque properly displayed. Once we saw the plaque we knew there spices were the real deal. We had been warned to be careful not to get ripped off. Samples were offered for tasting. The spices are sealed in bags then all bags were sealed into one so... More
