"Dear Spices of India, SUPERB !! Delivery to SW France, very carefully packed arrived in perfect condition, including bunches of coriander and very fresh bhindi. The delivery cost was incredibly reasonable, and it's so nice to know we can now get all the ingredients for both curries and also gumbo which we have been unable to make since moving here. WELL DONE and THANKS!"
