It has been a while since a last visited Raf's Spicebox, and I'm happy to say that the standard of service hasn't dropped at all. I visited 31/03/18 and I was served by a tall boy and a young girl, who made me 3 Xacutti's and recommended some other mains.

The girl was as nice as she was last time I was there, she was also very patient with my wife haha. Taking out time to explain what the spices were and let her smell them as well.

I am really excited to try out the side of tangy greens and Dhal I was recommended as I was told it's quick and easy to do.

They also told me about the new Leeds shop which I hadn't heard about until yesterday and my wife and me, can't wait to visit it.

I am happy to say that ever since discovering Rafi's Spicebox, the shop and the website have been a massive help with introducing us to cooking Indian Cuisine.

Nice to see this place so busy again when we popped in there this afternoon. 3 staff serving and all busy. Most seemed to be locals asking for bespoke curry mixes. :)

We have been using Rafi's products for some time. The smells are amazing. Meals are made up to the clients liking whilst you wait. They are easy and fool proof to use. Alternative you can buy all the ingredients in the shop. The staff are always the to help and advise.
