"Dear Spices of India, We just had to thank you for such a speedy service!! Our order arrived less than 24 hours after having been placed, most impressive. Although we live in an area with plenty of local shops selling spices, it was great to be able to source everything from just one place & we are also pleased that every product ordered carried a long future use by date. We were so pleased with your site that we replaced all our existing spices & ordered several we have yet to try. We are very impressed & will recommend to friends! Thank you!"
