Very expensive, very good variety of pre-mixed spices, Teas and coffees way too expensive. Caters to well heeled tourists,Travelers can do much better.You do know the difference between tourist and travelers! Owner is not at all friendly, bottom line appears to be his main goal.

It may as well just be a scam since everything is way more expensive than in any other shops. I was pushed here by my guide, if that happens to you, leave the shop and change your guide.

Lots to see here, spices and teas and useful information. I think it is pricey, geared for the tourist market. However the staff were lovely and not pushy. We bought mango tea and look forward to trying it on our return home.

What an experience of color and smells. Great service and they vacuum packed our spices so our luggage wouldn’t smell like curry! Excellent assortment of teas as well. A lot of expected flavors, but a number of flavors I hadn’t seen before. Very reasonably priced.

I've tried to find recipes for some of their mixed spice bags (meat masala/aloo masala) with no results. This turned into a waste of time figuring out what ingredient was missing or how much to add. My advice is to stick with the tea.

Why don't you try going to their Facebook page and asking them directly. They will no doubt either let you know from there or give you the web address for where to find the recipes. Happy cooking!
