about asian dukan

What we do

AsianDukan is a new family run online grocery store with its owners having some 44years experience in the retail Asian grocery sector with Patel Brothers which was established in 1973 in Tooting, South London. Our objective is to offer our customers a wide range of ethnic products and ingredients to a forever changing culinary market, through an easy to use online site, that delivers straight to your door.

Patel Brothers didn't start off in a retail outlet but in our home in the early 70's, where Indian spices were rare to find on your local high street. The influx of Asian migration specially from East Africa, meant a demand in spices, lentils and even rice. At the time only a few wholesalers would stock these products and they would not be local. Papa would drive up to a place in East London and come back with a months supply, it was only when new found colleagues would ask him to get supplies for them, that he invested in a van and brought back sacks of spices and lentils. He's colleagues would come home to purchase these products and soon the word spread. I still meet customers today, who will remind me the days they use to come round to the house to pick my rations and now they only complian about parking. You can see where this is going.

There are four of us Papa, Mama, Sister, Brother and not to forget our two cats Rocco & Zorro. We are passionate foodies, it's not everyday that you are born into a spice shop and most of the talk is about lunch and dinner.

Being passionate about our food and the quality of our products for our customers is our top priority. We aim to deliver the same quality in this online business of ours, where customers use to come to our home we are now coming to yours.
