"Dear Spices of India, Hi, I would just like to say thank you very much for the excellent service that I have received from your company regarding my order. I was rushing on Monday to find a decent gift idea for my Dad whose Birthday was Wednesday and I stumbled upon your site. I have never used your site before and I found it very easy to use. I was also impressed with the range of products you had available and this enabled me to cherry pick some interesting items that my Dad has never tried to cook and never tasted. Most significant for me though was the fact that I placed my order around 16.30 on Monday and you still delivered it for the next day!! Because I spent over 30 standard delivery was free, and for only 1 more it arrived the day before his birthday!! This is a fantastic price, very reasonable and I would have been perfectly happy if it had arrived on Wednesday as I thought that I had missed the post for Monday. It is increasingly difficult to find a firm that will meet basic levels of customer service, but when I find one that exceeds them I am genuinely excited and so I had to pass on my thanks and congratulations for an excellent site and outstanding service. Thank you again,"
