Delighted with my purchase
Friday, 13 September 2019  |  Stephen

Hi,
I wanted to let you know how delighted I have been with the recent delivery I had from Essence of Thailand. I bought the items for myself and so they will last me a long time. Everything was packed impeccably well which showed the pride you take in your goods and the way that they arrived to me, without any damage.
I have only tried a few of the items that I have bought but everything I have is delicious and certainly moreish. I'm familiar with a lot of the tastes but I'm excited at the prospect of tastes that are new to me.
I am confident that I will be using your company again, and in the mean time I am heartily recommending you to friends and family.
With Thanks,
Stephen Monk

Amazing Curry Paste!
Thursday, 5 September 2019  |  Elaine

Hi

I have only tried the Malaysian curry so far and it is amazing! Really please with my purchase and will buy again. Really good prices too. Only one small negative - one jar leaked a little but I think that was because lid was damaged in shipping.

Regards

Elaine
