"Dear Spices of India, I am very Happy with your service. The delivery was prompt and trouble free, which for us is very unusual living in the outback of Portugal where it is virtually impossible for us to find any kind of spices so we end up growing most of our own, but even this has its limitations. Your web site was very user friendly and payment even easier. Once again many thanks for a Great Service. Yours sincerely,"
