"Dear Spices of India, First time I have used this website. The range of goods was really good and the website was easy to use, except that I selected Channel Isles instead of UK, my mistake and incurred a 10 pound postal charge. Spices of India realised immediately my mistake, refunded the 10 pounds immediately without me even asking and delivered the goods less than 48 hours after ordering on line. What a good service 11 out of 10."
