About ISS
India Sweets & Spices started with a dream by Mr. Kumar Jawa and finally, in 1984, he was able to turn that dream into a reality with his first location; a tiny, hole-in-the-wall grocery store and restaurant in Culver City. His wife Debra supported and worked with him in any and every capacity she could take on. Two years later, with the birth of their son, they established the annual tradition of giving free food to all his customers to celebrate and give back to everyone who allowed and helped Mr. Jawa's dream to build and flourish.

Soon India Sweets & Spices began to spring up in areas all over Southern California including Riverside, Artesia, Northridge, and Canoga Park. Today, we have over nine independently owned and operated locations in Southern California to serve you with our primary and largest location in Los Angeles' Atwater Village.

India Sweets & Spices has always believed in knowledgeable and friendly staff to assist our customers with any of their shopping or food service needs. If you're looking for something and cannot find it, ask one of our staff members and we will try to get the item for you.
