  • First time visit here and found it just by walking around York. We went for the Korma and the Jalfrezi mixes and also the special Pumpkin curry. The Lady serving us was exceptional and told us...

  • Amazing tasting curries to cook yourself at home. We always stock up when visiting York. It's amazing to see them make them up so quick and smell is amazing too.

  • Love this place. Very reasonable prices for authentic curry mixes. Buy from the menu or create your own. Just add the meat of your choice, tomatoes and cream coconut depending on which curry you choose. All instruction are on the pouch and you can even freeze them. The lady serving me was very enthusiastic and definitely knew her curries. A must if in York or look for the web site.
  • Very very cool shop, as you walk in you're hit in the face with the aroma of the various spices. Quite a large assortment of spices and you can custom order your curry mix on the go and take it home to cook.
  • Seriously the best curry mixes that you will never buy a jar sauce again. The staff were lovely and informative. They can adjust your mixes for all palates, help suggest ones to try and fair prices.
  • Oh my life the smell and choice.....amazing
  • If you've never made your own curry before and fancy giving it a go, then this is the shop for you. They will create a spice mix from scratch for you and pop it in a bag with a recipe stuck on telling you exactly how to cook it. Give it a go!
