    Anyone know of anywhere decent, thinking more Thai/Korean/Japanese than the usual Indian/Chinese. Visited Cheerful Links in Stoke last week which had some good stuff, but wondered if someone here knew a better place to visit.

    There is/was a Chinese shop in Martin Street, between Starbucks and the Dog House.

    A google street view from 2019 doesn't show them, but I'll take a proper look later :)

    I imagine that it is in/associated with the old NAAFI, now Londis?, shop.

    The Street View is 2015...

    That’s right.
    I went on an expedition to Everest, in search of lentils. It was a bit difficult to find and once I stumbled on the building it took a while to locate the door. Inside there is what looks, initially, like a Spar-style supermarket. The fridges at the back, though, are filled with much more interesting stuff and there’s a kind of opening into an extended storeroom area which is where you get all the brilliant ingredients. There was a freezer in that area, too but I wasn’t brave enough to inspect the contents.

    Is there currently an Indian grocer in Stafford?
