A good ethnic grocery store in Basel?

I love cooking eastern food (Indian, chinese, and Japanese) and i'm looking for a ethnic grocery store that can sell such product. I love especially japanese food but any other asian produces will work too as i'm always happy to expand my knowledge

Thank you!

I go to a few different ones, depending upon my mood and where I'm roaming that day.

There is one near Burgfelderplatz, just "behind" the Dominoes Pizza. There is another at Markt Halle, also along the route for the Tram 1. These two are essentially Thai but of course, there are other things as well (I get my Biryani spices at one, as well as kimchee).

Another I go to is an Indian shop I think, it is along "behind" the Burger King where the trams stop at SBB. I haven't fully explored there, I'm less familiar with this cuisine, but I'm learning!

The Indian shop down the alley immediately to the left of Burger King as you are leaving the Basel SBB train station has a wonderful selection of fresh fish and asian vegetables, as well as spices, rice, etc. They are also open rather late, around 8pm I think.

Run by Vietnamese. Similar cuisine though. There's a Vietnamese one near the end of the number 3 line at Birsfelden. Easier parking than Ah Chau.
