  • On first visit accidentally went to the shop next door which is NOT the same experience so be warned that Sunshine is the shop on the left. Quite hard to spot off Sudder street as it is off the street...  more »
  • If you are passing a Calcutta, the sunshine is a must! If you need if you need anything, they have everything! They can also help you for tickets of trains, or nothing that for a small Winery worth it to stop! Their prices are very interesting and the product quality is at the rendezvous! Finally, a huge THANKS to Akash and Sanchos and the whole family! Because in the end, the Sunshine is a big family! Next year the family! :-)

  • Sunshine, the must-shop of Akash. A large choice of products: clothes, accessories, décor, spices... You take full eyes, everything looks great! The prices are very very reasonable and the atmosphere is present! We're having a great time in this place where the colors feast the eyes, where hospitality is more than excellent with the small chai (the) always appreciated. Anyway, go ahead, you'll be welcome and well received, that's for sure!... And you will find what you are looking to soon Akash! ☺
