"Dear Spices of India, I must tell you how pleased I am with the Spices of India service and quality. I probably saved at least 50% on the price of the spices I bought from you. Usually I buy my spice in small jars from the supermarket not any more. Thank you! Not only are your products great value but your service was excellent to just a day or two after ordering and it had arrived safely. Well done Spices of India I will be shopping with you again."
