This was a great place for both Japanese, and Danish(!) groceries. I used to always shop for both. Won't go into details but this is a definite loss to Menlo Park and the surrounding area.

I shopped here for almost 30 years. I got my first rice cooker there, innumerable bottles of Tiger's Balm, and fresh ahi on Thursdays. Sadly, it has closed permanently.

I am only writing to let readers know that Nak's is no more. I am not sure where the nearest Japanese grocery store but Nak's son had to throw in the towel. An institution that is missed.

I would go into this little store for their little candy treasures! I swear they have almost 10 different flavor of kit-Kats. They are a little pricey but alway worth it, because I absolutely love green tea!

This was an excellent store for Asian specialities. Unfortunately, the owner retired, and his son kept it open for abt. one year. The store is now closed.

It is small but has an enormous variety of Asian food. Sadly it is no longer there. The employees were very helpful and knowledgable

If you are looking for that tough to find ingredient for Asian style cooking, this is the place to go. The owner knows his products and will suggest alternatives, especially Japanese foods. Amazing selection of soba noodles. Fresh produce too (small selection).
