I just got the "Pickled Ground Chili with Garlic" in my latest order, and it is fantastic! For many years (before Thai food was well known) I used an off brand of chili paste w/garlic in my Szechwan food, but when it disappeared from the market, nothing that I tried had that flavor - just vinegar and heat, and sometimes not even heat! This has that lacto-fermented flavor that intensifies the chili flavor and aroma, which I could tell as soon as I opened the jar! Great product!

I just received my third order from your fantastic company. I was quite skeptical at first, but the third time is the proof. All orders have been timely, complete, and packaged with obvious care and pride. I've gotten fresh produce as well as hard goods and packaged food products, and all have been of superior quality. You now have a customer for life, and I will spread the word.

Well designed and maintained website that is both informative and fun is another great plus.

Now if you would just bring back the Thai cooking school.....maybe a US based option?

I have been watching Importfood video to get ideas on the best way to use the wok (thanks Importfood for the videos). guess a customer for life now. Getting my order list ready for more shopping.

and excited our friend was to receive this. She just texted my husb. a picture of red curry chicken she just
made and said it was better than any she'd ever had at a restaurant. She's having a great time with her gift.
Thanks for you assistance in ordering. I wouldn't have had a clue!

I lived in Thailand for five years and traveled to every province at least once. My favorite places are in Esaarn; Phanom Rueng, Phi Mai, Khao Phra Vihaarn, et al. The North East has amazing sites, food and even more amazing people. This is where I learned how to make the classic som tom, gai yang and khao neo trio. I just made this last night and ran out of supplies, so it is time to re-order. Everytime I go to this web site, my experiences in Thailand come flooding back. Good food, good times and great people. Bon apetite.

P.S. You should add a photo gallery to compliment your excellent videos. . .

I am enjoying all of my Thai cooking products that I purchased from you guys so much! Everyone (especially my husband) is blown away by my slowly improving Thai cooking skills and especially how delicious the food is! Believe it or not, my husband even loved the Green Papaya Salad that I made! We are using our little round "NEW STYLE: Tao Charcoal Burner" a couple of times a week for filet mignon and grilled chicken. It works terrific and my husband loves it! And it is so easy to clean up afterwards.

Tried the new Tom Kha, because although I thought the serving size a little small, if Jerry says something is good, he's usually right!

I emptied two pouches into a saucepan and added about a pound of sliced chicken breast, and simmered the meat in the soup while cooking some rice. I added some cilantro and spring onion at the end and served it over rice, and it was plenty for my two daughters and me, they loved it. It really is one of the best packaged products I've tasted, so give it a try. (I did, however, add a squeeze of lime and some nam pla to my bowl, but I do that in Thailand, too!)

I would like to thank you for continually improving your selection of products. More and more, you're offering items of much higher quality than I can find in any of my local markets. For instance, the Mae Pranom Pad Grapao Paste I recently bought from you is far superior to other 'instant grapao' items, at a better price. It's an item i haven't found anywhere from here to Chicago - so today i purchased more to keep as back-up, along with other Mae Pranom items and some of my favorite fish sauce, oyster sauce etc (thank you for the $5 shipping, btw! It made it easy for me to stock up). I also use your recipe section all the time. Thank you and keep up the good work!

Due to your recommendations I have become addicted to everything Mae Pranom makes.
Their holy basil paste is incredible. I smear it on halved hard boiled eggs for lunch. The yellow label Prik Pao
is wonderful! Hot and sweet with great flavor depth from the shrimp paste. I use your large granite mortar and pestle
all the time now. If you are ever in Ballard and looking for some excellent Thai food definitely try Pestle Rock on NW market St.
It is Northern Isan Thai and fantastic. Thank you for making these products easily available.

Good Morning,
A few weeks ago I bought your Tom Kha non-salmon for a birthday present for my in-laws and a few for me.
Excellent product. Good level of spiciness. Maybe a little hot for some but serving with rice
tones it down just right and you could always add a little extra coconut milk as needed.
I added bok choy, some chicken breast and shiataki mushrooms to stretch it a bit. Lovely. Thank you.

I recently ordered and tried the new Tom Kha elephant brand soup.
I found it to be very good with a nice spivey touch.
The only negative for me is the price. $3.89 plus shipping for a plain soup without meat or shrimp seems to me to be too high!

I wanted to send you a quick email and tell you about my buying experience. My wife was very happy with the quality of the chile peppers and the galangal that we ordered. She couldn't believe how fresh the peppers looked.( We had a terrible snowstorm and the mail was delayed by almost 2 days) They aren't quite as spicy in her opinion but I think they rock. I will definitely be ordering from you again. I'm interested in the knives that you carry.

You could teach Amazon a thing or two! Oh, and, you have one if the best, well organized, user friendly websites ever!! It is really easy to navigate!

I've been looking for a Satay Grill for years! I had spent a lot of time in Malaysia, and became a satay junkie. Each time I was there, thought about bringing back a grill, but figured I would just find one here and save having to lug one half way around the planet. Well it's been 5+ years, of looking high and low for one.

I've been making do with using the electric grill... just doesn't taste the same. I've used the big grill, a bit of over kill you might say. So looking forward to my new grill. Thank you!

Just moved from California, where we have some of the best Thai restaurants. Now I live in the Midwest. I am so lucky I found Import foods because now I can make it at home. The curry started kit is great! And the Knives are sharp. The produce is fresh and everything arrived, beautifully packaged. They have very good customer service. I would recommend this site to everyone. I am not a new customer, either, I have made several purchases. Thank you Import foods, I am a very happy SoCal living in the Midwest!

This is a well organized website. I love the different shots at the product cookwares because it is not always to buy things from the internet. I also like the idea of the ingredient sets for the recipes.
I've never ordered on this website but I think I will.

Thank you so much.

My friend from Norway grew up on a fish porridge his mother used to make all the time and he said your Joke Cup tastes exactly like it.

Would not stop going on about it so I was impressed enough to drop you a line.

I could see that it was simultaneously a fond memory and yet frustrating as I believe that was like how I feel about chicken.

One eats too much of a thing for too long a time and well... After the hiatus' however, it is as a warm memory of nostalgia and joyous reflection.

For myself, I just thoroughly enjoy Thai food and I can't figure out why. I don't look the part I suppose.

We have spoken on the phone in the past.

Thank you for your graciousness.

I am still interested in the Cooking trip.

I don't know why but I am drawn to this.

Best new year wishes.

ImportFood Management team,

I just wanted to let you know that you're one of the best online grocers. The way you do business with your customers is just amazing. While I was shopping on your website on my most recent order (428788), I wrote a message on the comment section about getting fresh kaffir lime for a small quantity and being charge for lesser amount. My shipment came today and you sent me two Kaffir limes without charging me. Thank you so much for that!! We have a lot of Asian grocers in Minneapolis, but I will continue buying stuff from you just because I like to do business with good people. Hope your company grow bigger and bigger every year!

Hello, Import Food:

I recently became aware of your company by way of a couple of gifts from my friend. She has ordered the Por Kwan black tea for me, which I have come to love very much. I had never drank black tea before. Nor had I heard of Por Kwan, but then, I don't get to many Asian markets (the regular grocery stores that I go to usually have a super selection nowadays). My friend is of Filipino heritage and lives out west, and has opened my eyes to many different Asian items, with the Por Kwan tea being my favorite so far. Thank you so very much for having it! When I am able, I plan on ordering it from you as well. I never ask for, nor hint that my friend should buy me more tea. She just does it out of the kindness of her heart. Just a couple of days ago, I got three more packages of the Por Kwan tea! She's a huge blessing in my life, my best friend.

I'm not Asian, but do have a lot of European heritage, which does include the custom of tea drinking. I live in an area of the Midwest that has a large Asian population, but we don't have nearly as many Asian items (selections) for sale as I would like to see. Thank goodness for your company.

Best wishes and have a great day.

Hello! I've ordered from your awesome online store (with most professional packing). I would love to order young green jackfruit in brine. Aroy-D has it, same as the one you have with sweetening. I also need to order some basics but if you could get that young green jackfruit, I would wait and order all at once. (I'm a sucker for a shipping special!)

I have enjoyed and purchased your Thai cooking videos and find that Import Foods is the best. I live in a small town (after living in multicultural Chicago) and having access to goods such as yours is the greatest.

Hello and good afternoon/morning,

I was just wondering if you could give me an approximate shipping date on my order (426861) which I placed on 8/22. I'm ready to place another order for all the things that I have forgotten or just can't cook without, your website is AMAZING!!! I'll never shop on Amazon again.

I find that your prices are very reasonable and the shipping cost evens out the money I would usually pay for gas, parking and the stress of driving to New York City to buy my ingredients. Well minus stopping into my favorite Thai restaurant for lunch, that always makes the trip more fun.

I'm very lucky to live in an area where Thai is a very popular dining option. We have many Thai option is a 5 mile radius here on Long Island NY, one in almost walking distance. But cooking is my passion, so many times I just choose to cook my own and your website is a wealth of knowledge and recipes. Thanks!

Have a great day.

After experimenting with store bought ready mix thai tea and was dissatisfied. I came back to thai import foods to buy their tea mix. Believe me, the store bought kind is nothing compared to Por Kwan brand tea mix. It is even better than the restaurant style thai ice tea. I recommend buying the 3 pack deal. I'm already out of my first bag! Will buy more. I haven't found this brand at any asian market stores here in San Jose, Ca. I used half/half instead of sweetened condensed milk, as I am watching my sugar intake. It still is delicious!! Everyone in my family loves it!!!

I received my first order from Import Foods a couple of days ago. Packing protection A+. Speed and accuracy of delivery A+. I was so motivated by your videos! Absolutely can't say enough good about the interactive links between videos, recipes and groceries needed. it made me believe I really feel like I can learn to cook Thai. A new cuisine can be overwhelmingly difficult to "get" especially when it is so culturally different from one's own, but with the help afforded me o this website and your well priced ingredients, I think I can I think I can!!!

I fell in love with Thai tea a little over 1 year ago through the local thai restaurant and was paying $3.99/cup. After throwing away too much money (lol) I decided to look into making my own. I have tried over 5 different brands and the brand this company sells is by far the best- I can't distinguish between this brand and the one I was paying so much for! I discovered a long time ago that just minimally sweetening the tea with sugar while brewing and using vanilla coffee creamer to top it off was just enough sweetness and creaminess for me. I think it traditionally calls for evaporated or condensed milk, but honestly I can't bare the thickness of condensed milk and I find I over sweeten the evaporated milk, so the creamer is perfect. I did the 3 pack deal and honestly am almost out as my family wants this in the fridge at all times :) With amazing taste, reasonable prices and quick delivery, this thai tea is definitely going to be a staple for my family. Thank you Importfood!

I'm waiting for more stuffs to delivery on Friday (mortar&pestle, etc.). I'm so glad to find your website, make my life much more easier to cook Thai food by myself at home. :)) i will definitely order from your website again. ^__^

Thai Supermarket/ImportFoods is the only source for my Thai cooking. They have provided the website with SO MUCH information in the way of products, recipes, videos. The business is a labor of love Yaowalak and Jerry. The Thai Vendor CDs along with the site recipes overcome any starter hesitation you might have about cooking Thai food. It's fun!! I bought the 8" mortar and pestle, the fresh ingredients to make Thai curry pasts - it's not hard - try it and you'll appreciate the foundations of Thai cooking. Every product from woks to utensils to foods is authentic, the best Jerry and Yaowalak can offer for us. You can trust them and this site!!

We have an unusual business....started finding things for people with chemical sensitivities. Often find food from other countries have no or less preservatives. Because I am a retired teacher/counselor, I have time and the inclination to find things to help people as well as myself. Eventually we had requests for gluten free solutions (before these were more easily found locally.) Diabetic solutions were next (different foods rather than standard American make a more interesting diet.) I have been following your site for quite a while and ordering retail from you....gives me a chance to find good sources. You certainly are a good source....your service and selection are fine and I love the big wok (really love it!...my son who lives in his own house, but frequently comes over to cook neat stuff, admitted the new wok my husband wanted because of the flat bottom....cooks nice but he is still partial to the round bottom) and pail BBQ....and your videos are to die for....what a fabulous project....I don't know how you have the energy to do such fabulous work....good luck with your new school. PS And I love your meat knife....son works in Krogers in the meat dept.....thinks this knife is about as good as they come (price wise and sharpness.)

When we try to make pad kee mao at home we have had to use the store bought noodles, and we've been wanting to make our own hu tieu (as I understand they are called) for some time now. Thanks again, great website!

We just received my Kiwi Brand stainless steel meat knife and it is without a doubt one of the best knives we have ever used in our kitchen. It is very, very sharp and we used it to slice very chilled beef to paper thin slices to fix the Korean dish "Bulgogi" and it did a great job. I will definitely add more Kiwi brand knives to our collection. Thanks for being there!

I just love spicy food, almost every day I eat my version of a hot and spicy soup. Rice noodles, Red curry (lots of it), Ground Chili with Fried Garlic, plus the non Asian habanero pepper for heat, I used to add ghost peppers but that got to expensive. I put some kaffir lime leaf powder, powdered garlic Thai pepper flakes, and lemon grass powder in my soup bowl right before I eat it. Import Food is the best place to get my Asian spice fix. I make an order at least 2 times a month, my wife thinks I am nuts, because I eat almost 10lbs of habanero peppers a month in my soup and on almost everything else. All I can say is Import Food has a life long customer.

Hi there! I have always been a fan of traditional Thai Iced tea. After spending quite some time searching for the brand I enjoy the most, I found it here on your wonderful website. I was told to go to Amazon. I did. After using your site to make my purchase I saved over $14....and I do not exaggerate. Thalk you so much for providing such wonderful products at the best prices I have found yet! Can't wait for my tea to get here...:)

Many years ago I discovered you to be about the only place to carry not instant Thai tea, but the kind that you actually had to brew. I've moved around a lot and am fairly poor, but by heavens at least once every year (and a couple years twice a year!) I order the three for 12 or so bucks of the brewed thai tea that you carry, I practically live on this stuff, and it is very forgiving regarding brewing, I can't always do it like you instruct, but I have found a number of ways I can fix it and it's ALWAYS good.

I'm living near my mother again and I recently took some down for her to try, she loves iced tea in the summer. It's going on winter her now but I suspect when I order my next batch of Thai tea I'll be ordering extra, because she liked it very much, I was scolded for not having introduced it to her during "iced tea season"! (why it's only summer for her I don't know, it's all year round for me!)

Thank you for continuing to carry this product all this time, for having it a reasonable price...please don't ever drop it from your inventory. Thanks to it I've also occasionally ordered other items here and there to experiment with and get to enjoy a wider variety of flavors and cooking experiences. You folks are wonderful.

I've ordered so many things from you and I'm ashamed to say I don't know how to get started. I love to stir fry but hope to learn more about the Thai food. I do love the Szechuan peppercorn and use it quite a bit. My order always comes so quickly and no breakage with your excellent packing. I'm going to see about a class in Thai cooking.

Just submitting a testimonial. I ordered the tao cooker a couple weeks ago, and love it! So far we've used it for steaks and stir fry, and have also found that it works well for making s'mores as the coals are dying down (you can also warm your hands over it while making s'mores). It uses much less charcoal than a traditional grill, and it's easy to get the charcoal started without lighter fluid. I just use a bit of paper and some twigs from the yard, then throw the coal on. Overall, a great way to cook and a lot of fun to use. Thanks!

I have never regretted buying your nine inch mortar six years ago. I glued a piece of rubber anti slip mesh to the bottom. It allows me to use the mortar on any surface without a towel and keeps it in place too!

I made Massaman curry last night. All I can say is OMG.... what a wonderful dish. I went by the recipe on the video. The combo of sweet and spicy is remarkable. I used chicken breast cut into bit size pieces. And because I love cardamom so much, I added that and the bay leaves also. I just served it on white rice. This is my new favorite meal. Thanks for the email making me aware of the wonderful Massaman Curry Paste.

The mortar and pestle's carried at importfoods are probably the best deal around. the 8 inch is perfect for my home use but ill probably still buy a 6 and 9 inch version because there so nice. The knives are my next everyone must own a set from this site item. cant compare to a 200 dollar shun, but for 10 bucks or less a knife there incredible.

I've never see any site that had soooo many great testimonials as ImportFood and you deserve every single one of them -- and more! Of course, most people never take the time to make a comment after ordering something (unless it's a complaint) so this just goes to show how great of a company ImportFood really is. I appreciate all of the time you put into your website to give us recipes and tell us stories, and keeping us up to date on the health properties of certain foods. I am especially touched by what you did to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. I was not online during that week so I didn't get to to donate through ImportFood, but I want you to know how impressed I am with the kindness, generosity, and the care that goes into your website. Not only do you provide fantastic Thai foods and exotic recipes for all to enjoy.,, you also bring the human element of Asia closer to the US. Some websites seem like they're being run by robots (and they may be! HA!) but clearly ImportFood is run by humans with big hearts! (P.S Love you foods too, but that goes without saying)

What can I say. We received our GREEN papaya and herbs on Thursday and immediately got down to work. The som tam I made was the best I have had since my wife and I were in Thailand in 2000. And you just can't make proper Tom Kha Gai without Kaffir lime leaves. Our entire weekly household menu is going to be THAI,THAI,THAI. Without the best ingredients, that you provide it wouldn't be possible. Krab koon mach krab!

I hope that you are awake and happy. My sweet chili did not last too long. My son came for visit for Mother's Day and he took it. I am going to have to order three this time, so I can get at least one for myself. My whole family will be back next month for another visit. We used the curry that I bought the time before at my combination birthday party and Mother's Day. It was absolutely delicious. I gave all the people there your web site. I hope that they will visit and buy instead of shopping out of my kitchen cabinets. I also gave your web site to some of the customers that come to the drug store.

Just wanted to let you know that I made Tom Khaa Gai, using shrimp instead of chicken, for my daughter and son-in-law who lived in Cambodia and traveled with me in Thailand. I used the lime leaf powder and the kaffir limes you sent and the result was wonderful. Absolutely the best I have made (I have been modifying the recipe over time and think I have found the one that is right for us - like that I had in Phuket), and just makes me want to try again with lime leaves. Thanks for the substitution - it worked great. I'll be ordering kaffir lime leaves soon.

I used to live in Thailand myself but had never heard of Zebra (I'm talking over ten years ago) at that time. I am actually a fan of Zebra pens, which I believe to be from the same producers. I came across Zebra several years back in Milwaukee of all places. My wife and I were just on a day out and found am oriental spice store which sold the turners.

I am the kind of person that likes to buy something once. I remember a story about people in England a hundred years ago buying shoes - it cost 1 shilling for a pair of cardboard shoes that lasted a year, or three shillings for shoes that lasted 5 years. OK, strange story but it's always stuck with me when buying kitchen products and I have a feeling you might get my point.

Personally I find Zebra utensils laughably cheap for what you get, please don't under-sell them! Be confident in these products. I would pay three times what they sell for and be happy. I think professionals in the trade would too. Thailand makes some quality products these days (We still have Swing-line staplers, Mag-light and Zippo's). I cannot wait for these to arrive, some are Mothers day gifts. Thank you again, I wish you all the best of success. I will recommend your website to all I know.

My Kaffir lime leaves arrived 4 days after ordering. I'm impressed! Your site is fantastic and it is great to know that my impossible to find ingredients are only a click away. Thank you so much!

Thank you for sending your good article about Piper sarmentosum, the leaf used to wrap miang kham. I'm pleased that you are using genus & species names for some of the plants. Please add genus & species Piper betle, the leaf used to CHEW betle nut. The Thais I meet in the Kingdom say only Piper betle leaf is used for chewing nuts of the betle palm (Areca catechu). I have never seen the Piper betle leaf used to wrap miang kham but perhaps I should try it sometime. Your WWW site and photos are excellent. Thank you for presenting such interesting material about Thai foods & culture.

I chose your service because you had the availability of fresh galangal and kaffir lime leaves. I've looked EVERYWHERE I could find on this small island for these items and found nothing, not even any tamarind of ANY kind. When I made my first order from ya'll, of the mortar and pestle with the ground kaffir lime leaves, it came within 3 business days. That's why I thought the fresh produce would come sooner. And I know you can't control the shipping time, I think it could maybe be because it said "dry products" on the label, when there was actually fresh ones in there too. That could possible push them to rush it? I don't know. I don't know how they choose which goes quicker. I'm glad you told me that the galangal will be okay though I mean if it isn't a problem, I'd even pay more, but if you don't want me to order fresh produce it's fine. Your the only company I've found that actually ships here And uses USPS. I mean, if I just order fresh produce, and it Only looks the way it did, and it is still okay to cook with, I'm fine with that. What do you think? I'm here for 3 years, and I've never thought they wouldn't have any Thai products or ingredients here. Not even at the farmer's market. Can you believe that? I've even tried to ask the local thai restaurants, but they aren't very helpful, because their workers don't know what I'm talking about But I don't expect you to sympathize with me. I just wished there were a REAL Variety asian grocery store here. Thank you for everything though!

First I'd like to thank you for having such a great selection of items, recipes, and tools to choose from! That and great prices. I remember how happy I was to discover your website. I was trying to make some Tom Kha Kai soup after having it at a local restaurant but no specialty food markets carried the items. Finally I decided to try online and I was extremely surprised to find not only hundreds of ingredients, but that you actually offered a kit to make several servings of the soup! I really enjoy cooking Thai thanks to you. Now I found out that you were giving out carving knives and I am completely thrilled. I have liked your Facebook page from the day I discovered your site and I just suggested it to 12 friends that I know cook regularly. Hopefully thy will be your future customers too.

Thank you for emailing us. We are on your contact list because we order AROY-D coconut milk from you. We are nutruition and health conscious, and have experimented with many other "milks", such as soy, hemp, dairy, almond, rice, etc. So far coconut milk seems to be the safest, more nutritious, and - just as important - the tastiest. Did you know that AROY-D is the only coconut milk producer that packages their product in a package instead of a can. Why is this important? Because scientific research has now found that the lining of tin cans contains Bisphenol A (BPA), just like some plastics do. BPA has now been proven to be a carcinogen. It's one of the reasons why people are being encouraged to find alternatives to drinking water from plastic water bottles.

Just had to write again to praise the Maxchup line of sauces. I'm quite a good cook, and rarely would endorse something as complete, right out of the bottle, but these sauces are amazing. Maybe it's because they're simply made from the same stuff you'e cook with, not a bunch of corn syrup -- I don't know how they get such fresh flavors to survive the bottling process, but they do. If I'm in a hurry or home late from work, I shake a little of the hot basil Maxchup on some stir-fried chicken and onions, it's really good. Today I seared some tofu cubes and shrimp, tossed in some broccoli, and a couple shakes of the black-pepper Maxchup that you had on special last week (I am so happy I ordered five bottles!). I can't believe it came from a bottle and I can't believe I'm saying this - it's as good as anything I make from scratch. It's phenomenal with shrimp. I love it!

We received our first order from your company last week.  After a week of great enjoyment trying the various products we ordered, I just wanted to write to you and say THANK YOU from my family for all these wonderful foods. Your company has new fans in our household. And a question: Might you have any *green* curry pastes that are vegetarian?  Sadly for us, your wonderful Hand brand green curry and the delicious Mae Ploy green curry both contain shrimp paste (only the yellow curries are vegetarian).  I did check all the curry paste products I could find on your website before my order, but found no green curry pastes among them.  Did I miss something?  Are you hiding any vegetarian versions in your back cupboards, by chance. Also, will you have any 'flat rate free shipping' days this month or further in the future?  I will plan our next order accordingly. Thank you again for your wonderful products and your great service.

Unlike any other email advertisements I get, yours offer wonderful recipes, access to interesting street food preparation and a boatload of wonderful, mouth-watering products. Your service is also next to none and the orders I have made have always arrived fresh and have made eating an unbeatable pleasure. I am not ordering today but will again in the future but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate and cherish everything you send. Have a great week.

I am so thrilled with the products I received this week.  I have followed two of your recipes and both were outstanding.  Your packaging of the products for shipping shows great care and conscientiouness.  Everything I ordered was far superior and at a better price than I can find locally, even factoring in the shipping.  I have told everyone I come into contact with who loves Thai and Indian food about your site. The produce manager in Safeway was thrilled to learn that he could order the ingredients for himself because he loves Thai food.  The conversation was initiated because Safeway, in a town of 75,000 people didn't have Thai chilis.  For 3 hours I went to grocery stores, and none of them had Thai chilis.

Importfood.com rocks.  It's just that simple.  As an entrepeneur myself, I know you have worked very hard to accomplish such a great business.  I am so glad you had the guts to start this venture.  By the way, since I have been eating Thai food using your recipes, I have lost 5 lbs.  Now THAT'S a testimonial!

Thanks for being there,
Kathryn

Also, I order quite a bit online and without a doubt yours was the BEST WRAPPED ~~ simply the most intelligently wrapped and shipped parcel that I have ever received.  It is worth noting.  You have a genius in your employ who completely understands the shipping process.  If you weren't so far away I would hire them to do a consultation with our shipping department at the nursery.  (we ship live plants)  The use of recycled material was just a bonus to the excellent technique.  It really stood out.  And also it WORKED.  Everything arrived in PERFECT condition. You can be assured I will order from you again.

I made my first good pad thai this week and realized to make it right I really needed some authentic ingredients, which is why I bought Palm Sugar and more noodles, and Tamarind Concentrate. I actually created my own tamarind paste from a block this week, so am hoping the concentrate will be easier to work with. I am also excited about the curry pastes and am trying both brands b/c of your interesting descriptions. We're having "thai lunch day" on Monday of next week. All of our employees are making thai dishes for each other...it's going to be fun and we'll most likely be blogging about it.

I went to a Thai restaurant for the first time in July(2009). I noticed that a girl at a table near us had a drink that was orange colored so I asked the waitress about it. She told me that is was a Thai Iced Tea and what was in it. I ordered one and absolutely fell in love with it. I have been looking online for the mix and finally found here at Importfood.com. I received my order a couple days ago and had some last night. Thank you so much for providing this product to the public. Now I can have one of the best drinks at home!

What a fantastic web site. You have a great selection of products and the video series is outstanding. I have placed numerous orders with you and everything arrives as expected. My wok came in pretty well dinged up but was cheerfully and quickly replaced. I especially love the tamarind cutting board. Please keep up the great job.

Received my first order today, and I could not be more pleased with the packing of my products. Finally a place where I can buy all I need to make all my favorite Thai dishes. It’s been over 5 years since living in Thailand, and NOW I can bring the wonderful aroma of Thai food into my own home. I’ll be back! THANK YOU, Thank You, thank you!

I received the street-vendor wok that I ordered and I absolutely love it! I was a little scared of it at first---I thought it would be smaller but it fits on my stove perfectly and I am addicted to it. The spatula you recommended is also great. I am also addicted to your chili paste with holy basil. I appreciate that you list all of the ingredients, I am a strict vegetarian so it helps to know what is in the sauces and pastes. Many thanks and looking forward to my next order!

I was searching for Kaffir leaves and found your web site. I have to take the time to let you know it is the best web site I have found for Thai foods. I can't commend you enough on such a great job thinking of everything you need to cook Thai!!! The videos, the recipes, the selection!! I absolutely love importfood.com. In 2 weeks we will be settled into our new place and I will definitely be placing my order to stock my Thai pantry with all the greatest products from you. I want to thank you for all the information you provide for us to cook and create authentic Thai dinners. I am planning a Thai themed dinner night for my family...I am excited to know I don't have to run all over the place trying to find everything I need, I will order it all from you...Thank you!!

Good grief, I just didn't know how many videos you had--I just looked at them all and gave myself--gratis--a Thai cooking lesson! And now I want to go to Bangkok again--having just gotten back from a street food bash--because I didn't get to eat enough different things. What a wonderful series this is. Thank you so much. It just transports me back and makes me want to cook!

I love Thai food and I have long been a slave to the local Thai restaurants. Last week, I discovered your website while looking for an Asian grocery store on the west side of LA, thinking about attempting to make my favorite Thai soup. I looked at your recipes and watched the street vendor videos. I looked at your products and read the explanations about the uses of various Thai produce, spices and condiments, which would otherwise have been a mystery to me. I placed an order for produce and other ingredients last Wednesday, and received my fresh produce two days later on Friday! I got my spices and condiments on Monday, and today, Tuesday, I made a Tom Yum Goong soup to rival the soup at my favorite Thai restaurant. To say that I am impressed by your service is an understatement! You have made me very happy! I will spread the good word to all my food-loving friends. Thank you.

I just received my order today in the mail and made a very large wok full of the Chicken Panang Curry for some friends. It was beyond amazing and very simple to make. Every one raved as we all thought it tasted better than we get here at the local Thai resturants. Perfect with a Lychee Martini! Can't wait to try the next dish. Thank you!!

I placed my first order from this store. The postal service made a mistake (not the store's fault), but the store went above and beyond and out of their way to make sure everything was delivered, and even followed up. My Thai tea is perfect and delicious. The bag was larger than I expected and will last me awhile. Thanks for the excellent service, products and prices. You will have a return customer!

The wonderful kaffir lime leaves came yesterday, and I am so pleased.  There were a few that I did not keep, but so many were included in the package that there's no way anyone could complain.  I had to freeze them considering our schedule this week, but will use them soon. Am very happy, and very pleased with Import Foods. Thank you very much!  I will be telling every one how good you guys are.  How responsive.

I bought an 8" mortar and pestle. I expected to use it a couple of times and then it would be a decoration, but Oh No! I use it all the time! Now I smash fresh herbs and spices before adding them to a recipe for extra yum. It's nearly as fast as using the food processor, and it's easier to clean. I'm getting one for my friend for xmas.

When service is especially good, I try to take the time to send a positive note (esp. since others tend to only note the negative). I was going to compliment the speed, efficiency and thoroughness of the individual who just took my order for a mortar and pestle. However, since his name was Jerry, I'm guessing it's not simply a coincidence that that's also the name of the company's owner. Your products seem great. Your asssistance was great. I look forward to receiving the mortar and pestle.

My brother (who is a professionally trained chef) turned me on to your site. He cooked some of your products (red curry with chicken and veggies) for us over the holidays and we enjoyed them very much. We live in middle Georgia and it's hard to find good Thai around here. I can't wait to introduce it to some of my friends. I will give them your web address in the hopes they too will place an order.

Thanks for the quick shipping (considering how big the order was). I'm almost alarmed how excited I am about this -- it's my Christmas present from relatives (they gave me the check, I pick what to get) and I've been watching more of the street vendor videos than is good for me. Nice job on the website!  The videos are a great incentive to buy, and the links to the products in the video are a good idea.

Hi All- Just wanted to drop you a line or two....I absolutely love your site.I've bought many items(from produce to spices to cookware)) over the last several years. I have never been disappointed...everything is always so wonderful.I have tried many of your recipes...all are so very authentic...like being in Thailand! I just made both your Panang Pizza and the Panang lettuce and tomato sandwiches....this recipe is out of this world!!! And just when I thought you couldn't outdo the Baked Noodle Casserole! I've also tried many of the Street Vendor recipes which are also great. Thankyou for such a wonderful site and the many items and recipes you offer...I shall be a fan for life!

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your website and newsletter. Your pictures, videos and descriptions make me feel very comfortable about cooking Thai food. I discovered Thai food seven years ago during a trip to Seattle. Sadly I live in Alabama, so it's very difficult to find authentic Thai food. A few years ago, a Thai restaurant opened in a nearby city (Opelika), but closed after about a year. At the time word of mouth was just picking up and they already sold the restaurant. Now it's three years later and I discovered another restaurant that serves Thai food, but not as authentic as my previous restaurant. If I'm lucky, I can get to the restaurant once a week. Why am I telling you all this? Because I can't cook. And I get frustrated very easily when I try. That is why I appreciate your videos. They take some of the "mystery" out of cook and I feel brave enough to try. Please keep sending newsletters. I love them. I am considering taking a cooking class this summer to help with my cooking jitters. Hopefully I'll be able to try more of your recipes.

My wife, Thongkai, is from the Nakhon Phanom area and loves to "yell" at your street vendor videos, "no, no, that's too much ... (fill in the blank)".  She has had a few, "oh, that's how they do it" moments and looks forward to your emails.  We'll have been married 40 years this December and it looks like it's going to work out just fine.

I just ordered an 8" mortar and pestle from you. In the process I located your web site. I think you did a very nice job with it. You provide useful information while selling items I might want to buy. For example, you provided the recipe for Japanese Udon Noodles and gave me the links to the ingredients I might not have. I also love that you provide a library of videos. I think that your use of technology to run a business is simple, useful, and elegant. Bravo! My friend at work is married to a lady from Thailand. I'll share this site with them. Needless to say that I'll be ordering from you in the future.

Thank you so much for processing my order. The picture on the internet does not give the brass wok justice. I have a lot a copper utensils from Turkey and antique cooking pots from Morocco. This functional art piece goes so well with them. The people in the office said it looks like gold. I think you need a shinier pot on the internet. Whoever created that pot should be very proud. This is something to be passed down to family. By the way, the plum sauce was delicious. We had chicken stir fry with Thai Ginger yesterday and I put some in it. Yum. Next time I will order some Thai ginger. It is very expensive and I usually go to the International Market to buy it. If you can add it to the order today (the cheapest amount to buy) that would be ok as well, because I only have a little dried out piece left. Thank you so much. Have a great day.

Wow, just got my first order from ImportFood.com and I could not be more pleased! I ordered some canned and jar goods as well as fresh produce. (I was leery after other online orders of produce - that company sent?the entire order, canned goods, cookware and produce,?in the same box.??It took six days to arrive and the produce was much worse for the wear. I called your customer service and was assured, by a VERY helpful and pleasant gentlemen, that I would receive my good shipped separately so that the produce items would arrive fresh. I got both orders on the same day and the quality was excellent!! Five stars, without a doubt. Generous portions of high-quality produce. My husband and I must've stood in the kitched for five minutes passing the Kaffir lime leaves and Thai basil back and forth inhaling the delicious scents. Thanks for delivering such quality, both in product and in customer service!! I can't wait to order again and will recommend your site to anyone who is interested in Thai cuisine. I'm heading to the market to get some prawns right now and tonight my house will be filled with the smell of fresh tom yum koong. Thanks, ImportFood team!

Recently my daughter in the US had to present her senior project to her peers. As a designer she designed a Thai Restaurant and to make the presentation more appealing she asked if she could serve a Thai dish to her guests. I suggested Khow Neuw Mamuang and ordered her your sticky rice set. Both were great hits. She has become a fan of your site and I look forward to cooking some Thai dishes for her when I come to the US in May. Keep up the good work.

The items look so fresh; I can hardly wait to start cooking with them...tomorrow...will start with the Tom Yum Kung (hot and sour soup with prawns)!! By the way, I love your street vendor videos. Question, can you send me the Tom Kha Salmon recipe from the Prime Minister of Thailand? For some reason, it did not copy completely. Thanks. Again, thanks for the prompt service.

Do not buy the Shing Shang crispy fish unless you want to become addicted to them! I had to order another item from Importfood.com so thought that I’d try a container of Shing Shang. First nibble and they were OK, but now that I’m near the bottom of the jar I can’t stop. The texture is mostly crispy and just a bit chewy. They are sweet and at the same time hot, fish taste, but mild. A really neat snack. This Import foods order was shipped promptly, as always super well packed. Thanks Import Foods.

But no problem. khorb khun.

Received my order on Friday and just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the freshness! All of the produce was fresh as can be. I had shopped earlier in the day at a local Asian market (was afraid your order wouldn't make it) and was so disappointed with the wilted or old produce. When I returned home I found your order on the steps! It arrived just in time for our Valentine's Day Thai dinner we were cooking with friends..Thanks so much for providing this service. I also tried the recipes and they are also great!

Followup email: I'm gradually trying out all my purchases, and so far everything is excellent. I can't believe I can have good thai food at home. I'm getting ready to go fix some quick spring rolls for lunch. Just wanted to let you know I plan to do more shopping with you in the future. Thanks again for a great website and quality products.

I can't tell you how impressed I am at the service and quality of the products I ordered from you company. It's simply the best ever. In faact, I wrote about your company and put it on my blogging web site. Fishhawk Road--- this is my site if you'd like to take a look. Lots of people view it so I thought I'd let everyone know about you and your company and the marvelous recipes. I'll definitely be highlighting more of your recipes and ordering more. Keep up the great work. I wish you the best.

I have told all my friends about to go online to check out all you items. The latest order was Christmas gifts for some of my friends. I was shocked, when they were delivered so fast.

Just received my 6" granite mortar and pestle a few hours ago (12/9/08) and it reduced my recently pulled and dried dandelion root, into pulverized bits (for making homemade DRT (pronounced "Dirt"; Dandelion Root Tea)), in a couple seconds!  Amazing!  I love it!  I'm trying to think of other uses for it, as I speak!

I've been on your email list for awhile now, and wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoy reading about your products, plus watching the videos. I love the authenticity. Not just that it's all authentically Thai, but also that you are real people and your personality comes through. I really like the way you narrate the videos. It's all so honest and down to earth. You also do a great job of keeping the web site updated and providing lots of information about how to do things. I love to eat Thai food, but I'm not a great cook, and I'm easily intimidated when things look difficult. The way you describe things makes it all sound do-able -- very encouraging! Combining that with offering everything one needs to prepare the food, you're doing a terrific job of making Thai cooking accessible. Thanks!

I love the mortar and pestle! I ordered the 8" and 6". I love the 6" it is a kitchen staple.I use it to take the skin off of garlic, don't use too much pressure. I make guacamole in it and then use it to serve. Its great to break up nuts for pancakes and muffins. Its wonderful to use to make a bean dip like hummus. Or to smash beans to be refried.I love making Thai food and that is why I purchased it, but as you can see it is great for all types of cooking! Love it!

I just wanted to let you know I received my order a few weeks ago, in good shape. I'm not into Thai food, but Italian, and the mortar and pestle did a superb job making pesto. I'll never go back to using a blender again, the taste is so much more intense. Thanks again.

I just returned from a two week trip to Thailand. While there I attended 4 days of culinary school, where we learned to prepare quite a few of the dishes that keep me coming back. When I got home, I happened upon your site. EUREKA! I ordered two mortar and pestles and spices, lime leaves, etc....I am completely impressed at your quality and value. The 8" mortar is exactly the same as in our cooking class. I love it and am telling all my friends. Living in a small town, it is difficult to find things like Kafir lime leaves. You have it all. Thank you!

Wow! Fantastic service and products. I had no idea I would be receiving my order so promptly. One day I'm ordering, the next thing I know I'm eating authentic Pad Thai, which by-the-way, is the best Thai dish ever. It's very exciting to know that authentic Thai products are so readily available to me, living here in Boise, ID. Thanks for a great service and I look forward to a future partnership in Thai cuisine.

I am absolutely delighted to get the story of Thai wedding traditions, along with pictures of the beautiful and colorful wedding foods. I hadn't known anything about Thai weddings. As always, I treasure the authentic recipes, and I cook Thai dishes for company often (after I practice for my own meals before I serve to guests!). I fix Thai Congee for my own breakfast most often, as I prefer it over American style breakfasts. Your web site, and the mail order items you offer are the very best, especially your wonderful service. I recommend it to everyone who likes Thai food as the best presented and maintained web site of all I have ever checked. I don't even bother looking at any other any more! Keep up the great work.

I am just writing to say Thank you. We have recently moved from Sammamish, WA to a very small town in Alaska :). This place only has one super market in town and I was having a hard time getting Asian ingredients. Oneday someone commented me on my blog and told me about you! I have been craving Thai foods since I've gotten pregnant so I was so happy to find you! Unlike other webstore, you give us a deal on shipping. That really helps me! I am using your recipes and they are great. I would like to request recipes for *YUM WOON SEN* and *SEN LEK NARM *in the future. And if you could provide a small set of "Lemongrass, Thai chile and Kaffir lime leaves" also helps! I hope you consider this. I have enjoyed Street Vendor Video! I love it! I will recommend your store to my friends and people who love Thai Food.

I have been looking for a QUALITY mortar and pestle for two years. I have tried numerous types but none lasted long. I ordered your 7" mortar and pestle and I adore IT! It is not only gorgeous but it is functional. The attention to detail is outstanding. The pestle has a slight flat edge on one side to keep it from rolling off the counter. The mortar's sturdy construction makes it built to last. I can foresee only one reason to buy a second mortar and that is to get the 9"! I also purchased your set of Soy Sauces. WONDERFUL! A+++ The tastes are authentic and everything was packaged securely. My experience with your service and quality of product will keep me coming back. I will recommend you to all my friends. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Hey-I just wanted to compliment you guys on not only an amazing website but wonderful products as well. I really wanted a selection of Asian spices that I can't get where I live and ordered from you.

You guys rock!! I ordered the Okonomiyaki pizza kits and sauce on for a dinner party I am planning just praying I would have it in time. I called in for a tracking number and a very polite professional gentleman told me that I may not receive the package in time, he graciously apologized and thanked me for my business, and told me that rush orders are best called in. I got the package this afternoon!!! You folks really stepped up for me on the shipping and I greatly appreciate the service. You're welcome anytime for Yakatori and Okonomiyaki pizza! Thanks again!

I love everything I bought from Importfood.com. Can't believe how fast it came. (When you order things online, you want them immediately! The order doesn't come that fast, but close enough!! lol) Loved the Thai Green Chili Peppers... the Chicken Broth is better than any I've ever had. (In fact I'm back to order a case this time!) The Palm Sugar is great... loved trying all of the different canned fruits. (great for martinis!) This time I will order the Mulberry Tea and the Bael Tea, and Aloe Vera Gel for their health benefits. (Dr. OZ was on Oprah the other day talking about how good Mangosteens are for us... as well as Mulberry and many other Asian foods, so I came straight to Import Foods to order them!) Thanks!! Great service and great products.

I am going to talk it over with my wife to see how often she needs shipments and then I would like to set up something to where we can automatically send food every so often and just take it off my card. Got to keep the wives happy. A happy wife is a happy home. Again, thank you so much for your store and your services. Take care.

I just received an order for canned products which will do me for a while. The information about keeping the basil in a jar was very helpful and I will order a fresh batch. The last basil I ordered was put to good use. I used some fresh and kept it in the refrig. I found a recipe to make basil oil on the Net and made a batch which has been great. The rest I bundeled with rubber bands in several packets and hung them on my kitchen cupboard until they dried. This worked very well and I only have a pinch left. Seemed to keep a nice flavor and I used it in dishes and soups. Thanks again.

My family and I have a favorite Thai restaurant here, and the other night we celebrated 3 of our birthdays by going there for dinner. After our meal the waiter brought out a dessert that he called sticky rice with mangos. It was heavenly. So I researched the recipe and found it on your website. My husband and I just sampled it and it also was heavenly. I can't thank you enough for your assistance with this recipe. My next endeaver is going to be the Thai Spicey Lemongrass Chicken. Again thank you.

I am really enjoying all of the good stuff that you sent last time. I think that you must publish a recipe book. Your Thai recipes are so good, and much, much better than those available in other Thai cookbooks! I have been cooking like crazy, my house smells wonderful, and all of our friends love the food.We have 1 Thai restaurant in Keene, but they are SO expensive, and serve very small portions. When they began charging $1.95 for 1 cup of steamed rice.............we all rebelled. Now everyone is cooking their own Thai food. I have a rice cooker/steamer, and it is always in use. I could easily use #50 of rice/month. Thanks again for your wonderful service!

I'm about to place another order but have a question: which dessert is best? thank you so much, lyn.

My mother-in law sent us some Kaffir lime leaves, from your company, after we told her we were having a hard time trying to find the leaves fresh. When they arrived the leaves were in amazing condition and smelled wonderful. We use them to make Tom Yum soup....it made the soup fabulous, I just ordered more, can't wait to recieve them in the mail. Thank you for having such wonderful fresh produce!

About a year ago I purchased Importfood's wok and I love it!!! I use it just about every day. It seasoned quickly and deeply and is relatively stick proof. In addition, it's light weight, sturdy, has a large cooking area inside, a solid wooden handle, and great heat distribution. It also heats up very quickly. In short, it's just a pleasure to use!! The flat bottom is perfect for my gas burning stove and I don't need to worry about it tipping or food spilling out. A nice extra is that the Wok is really inexpensive when you compare it to others on the market. It's a steal for the price! What did I do with my old wok? I threw it away. The only bad news is that I no longer use my fancy and expensive pot and pan set that my wife and I got as a wedding gift! Thank you Importfood.com! I think I have entered Wok Heaven!.

I was amazed and delighted to receive the package of fresh galangal, Thai chiles, and Kaffir lime leaves within 24 hours of my order. This is a marvelous company, from which I have now just ordered everything to make my first grand Pad Thai, which is, I trust, only the beginning of many orders to come. Although we have many good Asian markets in the Seattle area, none offer the remarkable range of Thai products that ImportFood.com does.

I received your 6" granite mortar and pestle a few months ago and have been very pleased. I never knew a mortar and pestle could work so well. I just love it. I'm ordering the 8" as well now because it will be better for making large amounts and also for pounding things like dried watermelon seeds, which tend to jump and escape from the smaller mortar. I won't be surprised if in a little while I will be ordering the 9". That one is probably too heavy for me, but will be great for putting the menfolk to work once in a while -- and will make a great looking serving bowl. I have used suribachi, marble, ceramic, metal and wood mortars and pestles before and your wonderful granite ones are my favorites by far. No contest. Superb!

I just had to write again! As always, I love your store, and have been particularly pleased with my hand-forged brass wok and the pro-slice peeler. My latest creation with one of your products is just amazing (if I do say so myself!)...I steamed some little neck clams with fresh basil and tom yum paste...what a powerful flavor! I then used the resulting broth on rice noodles and threw in some other seafood. I feel like there are no limits to what can be done with your ingredients -- I have an entire Thai pantry now! I am always happy to let folks know when I am pleased with products, especially when they are accompanied by terrific customer service...unfortunately the latter is extremely hard to come by these days, so when I find it I am that much more appreciative! Your website has been a culinary godsend...it is so hard to find stuff in Asian grocers sometimes because the labels are not in English...I love that you guys have such great descriptions of your products, they have enabled me to try so many different things! I am a real fan of the Pho paste...I can't image ever trying to make the real thing myself, but this is so darn close, especially if you through some star anise in while it is simmering...I have bought it for friends who are huge, but finicky Pho fans and they too have been pretty impressed.

Thank you for your extra efforts!  I greatly appreciate it.  I did indeed write a cookbook & included your site.  I couldn't imagine writing a cookbook and not including it.  Your products, and service, are fabulous. I am actually teaching a cooking class over the weekend, which is why I was in such a hurry for my order.  (I realized at the last minute I was running low on some things.)  I will be sure to mention that I have the items for the class thanks to your effort.

I received my order yesterday, and am very pleased with it. I haven't ordered frequently with your company, but have always been immensely pleased with your products and service when I do order, and have provided your web site information to several other people, who have been just as pleased with your company.? Between us, we have ordered sauces and seasonings, cookware and cooking utensils, fresh produce and pasta - and whether we use our own recipes or ones you provide, we've never been disappointed with anything we have ordered.? You bring the market to my doorstep - thank you.

This is the first time ordering however, I was extremely satisfied with the curry paste and the Thai recipes that you guys share with the public.

My sister is a miang khem addict. Every time she comes to Florida from NY she has to gather up as much bai chaploo (Thai betel) as she can carry back on the plane with her. I moved to another house and was having trouble transplanting and getting it to grow in the new soil, so when she asked me to bring her some on a recent trip, I was really hard-pressed, so I ordered it from Importfood.com and had it shipped to her! Thanks for saving the day!

The mortar and pestle work great. I make traditional Thai recipes without shortcuts so I greatly appreciate how quickly I can pound and grind ingredients. Tomorrow I will use my barbeque for the first time for satay and have already ground the roasted curry paste and the red chili paste to make the satay sauce. I'll also try the sticky rice recipe tomorrow as well. I look forward to making real "la lot" beef roles instead of the grape leaves I have been using. They are good, but not the same as the real thing. I will freeze most of these groceries because I am only one person. Cheers.

Thanks for getting our gifts to my friends on time. The whole crew deserves a big thanks for the work they did during the storm problems. YEA!! for them. My wife loves her new rice steamer but she just had to point out at our last model (looked just like the new one) lasted 38 years and was purchased in Korat for 15 Baht (1967, 75 cents US at the time). She says she is sure the new steamer will as long, but is not sure I will.

I live in Houston, TX and this city has a very large and diverse asian community with vast asian markets, but believe it or not, as big as the markets are here, I have a very hard time finding a specific item. So I decided to search the internet for NANAMI Togarashi and found 2 websites that I considered purchasing from . After adding the same quantity to my cart from both sites, I found that your site has a more reasonable shipping charge and decided to proceed with the checkout after adding a few other different items (The other website is a MAJOR shopping site that starts with an "A"). My order came in promptly and with more-than-Excellent packaging! I'm so glad to have found your site and you'll definately be seeing more of me!

Wow! My order just arrived, packaged as if it were to travel around the world twice! The 8in. granite mortar and pestle is impressive (and beautiful workmanship). The recipe you had for the Larb Gai and sticky rice turned out great, just as I remembered from the Bangkok House, Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. I'll be heading down there to visit Su, Tukta, Benchaporn and the gang Christmas week. Can't wait to tell them what I have done! Happy Holidays. Thank you again. And you can expect another order from me very soon.

The first I'd heard of your company was when I received a recipe by email last week. I checked out your web site, and found several items- especially fresh kaffir lime leaves and pickled radish- that I've had difficulty in obtaining even at local Asian markets. Less than a week after placing my order, I have all of my ingredients. Everything was well-packaged and arrived in impeccable condition. I am blown away by the quality of the products I received. I will be ordering again. And again...Thank you!

I wanted to let you know how very happy I am with the wok I recently purchased from your online store. It is truly a quality crafted item. At first I was hesitant because your price was so inexpensive. But I must admit it is a high quality, very attractive and effective utensil. The booklet you included with this item was also very helpful and easy to understand. Thank you for offering such a competitively priced high quality product. I could not possibly be happier with my purchase.

I don't know if you like to know every now and again what customers do with some of your ingredients, but I tought I wouls share this one: I absolutely love steamed clams, but have found they are pretty unbelievable if you steam them with a couple of dollops of the tom yum paste...really fantastic and makes an elegant starter if accompanied by some sprigs of fresh lemon grass.

Just had to join the testimonial throng here, realizing I've picked up quite a few things from you. My big wok, mortar and pestle, my Vietnamese coffee sets, my kanom krok pan, etc. Fastest shipping around, super-well packed, and great recipes! Just made the Thai fried bananas for the kids; they loved 'em, and I felt like I was back on the streets of Bangkok. Also, just wanted to thank you for the tip on the Golden Abalone fish sauce - some might think six bucks a bottle is steep, but this is the first nam pla I enjoy from the spoon! Wow.

Deadheads usually decompose back to the soil.  the act of deadheading a plant can give birth to new flowers.  Usually the head is put in a vase for trying to prolong the life of look.  Grateful Dead followers considered deadhead thanks to LSD and Tibetan/ Egyptian Books of the Dead. Mainly the action of seratonin/third eye; the chemical active during the process of dying to give the spiritual apsect to infinite, also activated by many chemicals synthesised and found in botanicals.  Noone will truely understand the spiritual world if there is any that does not tye into the emotional stupor of the human being. Thank you for this mortar and pestle.  Will be putting it to good use. Peace Love

I have just tried the No. 1 Hand Brand red curry paste, and I am embarrased to say how much I ate last night. It is clearly superior to Mae Ploy, and the unit cost is about the same. The flavor is much fresher, brighter, and less grainy. The difference in complexity is like a $45.00 bottle of wine compared to a $14.00 bottle of wine. I also bought the green, and penang pastes, and cant wait to try them. The 8'' mortar and pestle I bought is such a great tool, and so much easier to use than the smaller ceramic ones, that now seem like a joke. Tra Chang fish sauce is definitely nicer and more refined than the Squid I was using. If you can't get Fresh Holy Basil for a dish like Chicken with Green Chili and Holy Basil, the Por Kwan Chili Paste with Holy Basil Leaves makes for a great substitute for the chilis and Holy Basil leaves. I acheived better than expected results using this, and my guests were wowed. I will submit the recipe if the owner wants it. The way your order is packed is excellent. By the way, the customer service I got whem I called was very informative and freindly.

I've placed this order Saturday and received it today (Wednesday). That was super-fast delivery for the shipping & handling that you charge. Thank you. As the Thai's, in a Vietnamese kitchen, mortar and pestle is an everyday kitchen tool for a serious cook. You just don't know how long I've been searching for a heavy duty set. Thanks for a very informative website as well.

Your prices are so reasonable it encourages me to experiment even more with authentic Thai recipes. Thanks again for great products and great shipping rates!

Just received my mortar and pestle today. It is absolutely gorgeous! I would have liked it just for use as an art piece let alone for use in the kitchen. I ordered it to crush up myssupplement tablets for easier and more thorough digestion. I had been using a coffee grinder but the tablets proved too much for it to grind causing it to wear out after a few months. The mortar and pestle is very thorough in pulverizing the tablets and takes very little time. The best part is that I do not have to worry about mechanical failure as I experienced with the other method. Expect more business coming your way as I will be telling everyone I know about this wonderful and AFFORDABLE product!

I recieved my most recent package as promptly as every other one since I began ordering with you a few years back. I've written before how happy we are to have found your company; we moved from Seattle 5 years ago and cant find supplies of quality Asian foods locally. My kids roll their eyes when your boxes arrive and say...'CURRY for dinner, right?!!' I surprised them this past order with Okonomiyaki/Japanese Pizza. It was fast, fun to do together and they ate it; even with the vegetables!! I would recommend your fresh produce to any other customer; quality is great even AFTER it crosses continents and then gets shipped across our country from you to me. Your customer service is excellent, and I will remain a loyal customer as long as you stay in business!

The flat-bottom wok is fantastic, the mortar and pestle is extremely good for grinding chiles as well as other spices and the sticky rice cooker reminds me of the desserts I had on my vacations in Thailand in both 2003 and 2004. The recipes are great and I really enjoy experimenting with them for a diverse taste. I cannot wait to experiment some more. Thanks again for being a respectable company and keep up the great work! Now if I could only find fresh Mangosteens!

Just to let you know that the order arrived yesterday, wonderfully packed and each item was in perfect condition. I appreciate the care with which the order was handled. The ceramic dishes/spoons are exquisite and I will continue to add to my set, hopefully on a monthly basis, for a really complete table service. I think they are all really lovely and will add to the enjoyment of whatever food I serve in them. Thanks again and it certainly is good dealing with you. The items you feature of kitchenwares, food and other items leaves "no stone unturned" when it comes to having everything perfect when serving a Thai meal and makes it truly authentic. The porcelain dishes certainly add to this to a great extent.! Thanks again!!!

So thank you for this wonderful product, and for making me a true Thai food devotee.

I would like to thank you for your role in letting our five man cooking group, called Men Who Cook (which I copied from my brother-in-laws group in St.Helena, CA) prepare our excellent Thai dinner. One other guy helped me immensely down the stretch, and another of our group did the Lychee cocktail. I bought rice bowls and a lot of little stuff from Pier One and Crate and Barrel, broke out the Thai bronze ware and had the table looking pretty cool. The recipes were excellent and everything I bought from you was right to the last detail. Your prompt service was much appreciated. That sticky rice with coconut milk and mangos was a killer, and was so good I am sure it is illegal somewhere. My wife snuck in at the last minute and enjoyed it also.

I am so very happy with both of these items. Today I ordered your condiments, spices and chillies. Cannot wait for them to arrive.

The replacement aluminum tray for the steamer which had been smashed in shipment arrived on Monday. I am perfectly satisfied with the order I received from you. Everything I got from you is good stuff. I guess it goes without saying, I am especially pleased with the 9 inch granite mortar and pestle. I have worked as a chef during a part of my life and though mortar and pestles are used less these days commercially, I have always used one at home. But the ones I have had were kind of in the class of being merely a toy compared to this wonderful granite mortar and pestle. Again, thanks for a high quality product in this day of make-believe.

There's nothing like the taste of hand-prepped, old-fashioned home cooking! It will get two or three lifetimes of use in just mine - Never mind the lucky bugger that inherits it! Thanks.

I want to thank you so much for your support during my deployment. It meant so much to me. Thanks again.

How do you do it?  I ordered two plates last week to see if my friends would like them for their wedding and they arrived the next day.  My friends liked the plates, so I ordered enough for four settings yesterday (more to come at Christmas time, I think).  It arrived today.  You sure do specialize in good service.  They will move to a new apartment on Saturday, so they will be able to start out right away with real plates.  Thank you so much for helping make their first meal in their new house a good one.

Many thanks for the fine Weapon of Mash Destruction received in the post today. I ordered your 8" Granite Mortar and Pestle, and it arrived by postal delivery with only a further fee of C$13.00 applied by Canada Post.  It makes your postal service very competitive, and advantageous for cooking enthusiasts like me who prefer authentic cooking ingredients and  utensils to get a genuine taste.  I am an avid cook (I wouldn't use the term Chef), and have lived in Asia for 6 years, so my perference is always for authenticity.The mortar will prove indispensable in this regard. Many thanks.

These items (Thai ceramic tableware) are beautiful! They are even nicer than I thought they would be. I am considering ordering some additional pieces. They remind us of our trip to Thailand and the wonderful ceramic items used there to serve fabulous Thai food. Thank you for offering such high quality products at such reasonable prices. Thank you, too, for the excellent packaging. Every piece came through in perfect condition.

I just received the mortar and pestle today, after only 5 days shipping (Thur - Tue). Very fast! The mortar and pestle are in excellent condition, as promised. Not sure about duty costs as I have not received notification just yet, but I imagine it will be around $9 CDN. Thank you so much for selecting such a beautiful set! I can't wait to make use of it!

Having spent quite a bit of time spoiled on readily-available and authentic Thai food in both the Portland, OR area and the Boston area, I find myself currently living someplace with no Thai restaurants around under an hour drive. Lucky for me, I find your website, order some things, and find them easy to prepare. EXCELLENT quality on everything, and the food comes out just as I'd hoped. I'll most definitely be back for more in the future. Couldn't be more pleased.

I recently purchased the 8" Thai Granite Mortar & Pestle. I always thought a large Marble Mortar & Pestle would be my ultimate luxury. Much to my amazement, your Thai 8" is that and more - at a fraction of the cost. I've used it almost every day and don't know how I have survived without it.

Jerry and Yaowalak- Just a quick note to say thanks for the wonderful Thai recipes and ingredients. ImportFood.com is high on my list in terms of quality and service. I have loved Thai food for years but have never been brave enough to track down the details and try it at home. Finding your site gave me an excuse to have a real cooking adventure! All arrived on time and in great shape (your care in packing is much appreciated). A friend and I spent the afternoon chopping and grinding and had a wonderful dinner that tasted as good (if not better) than what I've had in restaurants. It was also a real treat for me to have authentic iced Thai coffee - following your instructions (with the filter) did the trick! I am sure I will be ordering again, but I wanted to let you know that your efforts are much appreciated! Best of luck to both of you...

I was worried that something would be damaged on its way to my house - and I have a gate down my driveway that keeps everyone out .... including the postman. So, what normally happens, is that they drop it over the gate and something always breaks. But, nothing broke. In fact, I am very excited about my new set of Thai plates and serving dishes. They are really great - the glaze is beautiful, the color is perfect .... I really will use a lot of these.

The quality with the overall appearance, glaze, weight, design, etc. were perfect. A friend was visiting and she really liked them as well. The price was excellent. I hope you add some more options for ceramic ware to your site, in the future.

I have rarely seen any packages from any on line retailers this quick. I have recommended your web site to all my friends and co workers. I recently made Pad Thai (from your recipe of course) and brought it to work. Everyone LOVED IT!!!! and now I have a quality source on line to order from and no longer have to inconvience my family to shop and send me and Thai speciality foods I want or need.

I love your website and the recipes are so inspiring. I am giving a Thai dinner party on Saturday and am excited to use my exotic ingredients. One question please; what is the best method for reconstituting the dry rice paper so that it is pliable? I want to make spring rolls and have considered simply soaking the sheets in water but thought I would check with you first. I shall be giving your web address to many friends and I want to thank you for providing such great products with wonderful service

I will look at your web site in the future to see if there are any other things I would be interested in.

Ok so I'm a guy and I should have no use for a ceramic tea set, right? Well, no. My girlfriend thinks tea in bed is just about the greatest thing in the world. Unfortunately, making her happy involved tea served in an "America's Most Wanted" mug (garage sale, 25-cents). Anyway, I figured I'd actually break down and buy something nice. How nice was the tea set? Not only was it packed perfectly and shipped quickly, it was so beautiful that my girlfriend took it home. Thanks guys, you're the best

(posted on chowhound.com message board May 08, 2004 at 00:40:13). My latest fave is http://importfood.com/ and I like it for the same reason that Fluff likes tienda.com. It's a one-stop location for all things related to Thai cooking, including recipes, equipment (want a sticky rice steamer or a Thai mortar and pestle?), staples (bags of rice), canned/packaged sauces, and the raw ingredient to cook from scratch. Prices are good and shipping is cheap .

Your company has been an absolute dream to work with. You should be commended for that. SO many companies these days do their work with the ever-growning mentality of "fast business." Move em in, move em out. I feel like I've been able to work one on one with someone regarding the mortar and pestle stuff, as opposed to some unknown at the other end of the computer. So, thank you. A few days after we shipped her order of three mortar/pestles (one each, 6", 8", 9") she sent us this picture from her home, and another note of thanks. Thank you Emily, glad you're happy!

What tremendous sensations cooking, serving and eating Thai creates with overwhelming taste, smell and texture. I have served supper to my family and friends on numerous occasions with great success since I started ordering from Import Food. It can only be credited to your recipes, wonderful food products and terrific Thai ceramics which have enabled me, a Tennessee "hillbilly", to become a "Thai chef"! Long live Import Food!

I am American born Europe background. I want to say thanks for the input of all your good recipes. I have been to Main Land China 5 times and well as many Asian Countries. One thing I have found out is that the Chinese and some of the Asian Countries is that they cook and make the best food in the world. I guess it is the 5 thousand years of knowledge. I have many friends in these countries and I have sent your site to them. Thanks again

My mortar and pestle just arrived!!! It is absolutley perfect!! I thought I would let you know that the duty that was charged was $9 CDN which is about $6 US which isn't bad... although it is just another tax that we lucky Canadians have to pay!!! Many thanks for all of your help! Cheers!

Just to let you know that the mortar and pestle arrived yesterday and I just picked it up at the post office. Geez that's a heavy sucker! I unpackaged it all and it looks fabulous! I can't wait to make my first curry sauce! Thanks again! I shall enjoy many years of using my new toy! And it was only $9.26 in duties to import it into Canada. It's the $US to $CDN conversion that scares me - but whatever!

Thanks very much. It all worked out great. We already made the sticky rice, and it was fabulous. (We visited Thailand in October, and ours was almost as good as theirs.) Customer service like yours is not common.  We'll be ordering more food soon.

Couldn't resist writing you to tell you how much I appreciate your company. You have delicious products and your packaging is unbelievable! I do 90% of my shopping online (for medical reasons) and your packaging is by far the neatest and most efficient I have seen! Never a spilled or broken container :).

Hi - I just wanted to applaude you on your outstanding service. I placed an order on Sunday evening and my box arrived Wednesday morning! And everything was packed amazingly. You guys do a better job than professional movers. Not a single noodle was broken, and you wrapped the sauce so well, it case it had broke it would not have leaked all over! My husband and I are currently (and temporarily, thank god) living in the midwest and miss all the culinary diversity we used to have when we lived on the west coast. So thank you for providing it, and doing it so well. I order tons of things of the internet from clothes, to tables to electronics ect. And I have never received a shipment this quickly! I will definetly buy from you guys again! Thank you!

I have never in my life received any items so carefully and wonderfully packaged for shipment. The items arrived quickly too. It is a joy that I was able to find the seasoning that I grew up on and learned to love after searching for it for years in my local markets. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Thank you very much for your wonderful products. We appreciate that you send us so many updates and recipes. I could only wish that all companies could be as "caring" of their cuctomers as you are. As I'm sure you know, it is all about making sure that your customers are satisfied with your product......you have marketed your products well, at a decent price and a very good "friendly" marketing strategy. Keep up the good work with a good product,and a great 'corporate personna". Best of Luck... I'm passing your good products on to my friends, Thank You.

Having recently discovered the amazing taste of thai ice tea, I knew I'd have to make my own! I stopped by the local thai shop and discovered that they buy your brand of tea! I immediately ran home and ordered my own! After receiving the package, and making my first batch of tea, I am happier than I could have ever hoped! The tea is perfect, and you will most definitely be getting repeat business from me! thanks again!

Hi, just wanted to let you know that I've enjoyed your products so, so much!! I've already ordered twice, and I've been very happy with everything. I've ordered ingredients for the Pad Thai and the Tom Yum soup. My husband and I love it! Everything tastes just like the Thai restaurant we go to! (Well, my husband says it tastes BETTER than the Thai restaurant we go to.) :-)

I'm happy to receive the egg noodle type this time but I would like to try the other, so if you could let me know when you get some in that would be great. You really do have an excellent site. There is a large Asian supermarket very near to where I live but I prefer to shop at import food for most things because they never seem to carry the brands and selection of Thai food that importfood.com does. I wish you every success in the world and congratulate you on an excellent service.

It's really great to deal with a company that not only has "customer service" but actually excels in service.  My daughter is totally in disbelief that you just sent a replacement order before receiving a reply/response from us.  You certainly know the value of customer satisfaction and as a result, we will both be spreading the word.  Gretchen will be shopping at ImportFood.com in person very soon.  Thanks again for going the extra mile.  You guys are great!  I love your newsletter and recipes, too.

Received the mortar and pestle and absolutely love it,,,,made the classic Basil Pesto last night with noodles,,,best I've ever had. I believe it is true that this machine" gets the essential oils out of the vegetable products, better than anything I've ever used, and my guest agreed. It's all in the taste, and that's the proof. Additionally we made a simple salsa for appetizer, with the same great results. You can use the mortar as a great presentation piece for salsas/sauces also; just wipe the top and sides as needed,,,almost looks Mayan, and how fitting that is. Also appreciate the excellent customer service from your company.

I just love my new pro-slice Thai peeler...it is amazing!!!! Although I have trouble finding green papaya around here, I use it to shred not quite ripe mangos and make a similar salad to "Som Tum." It is quite good and I would have never thought to do it without the peeler! Thanks!

Importfood is a quality company. They managed to get a shipment over from the US to Sweden, EU, in under a week using USPS Intl. Air Parcel. I am deeply impressed. Also, the contacts were quick and helpful. For you Swedes out there:  "Bra ställe att handla på, fraktpriserna är helt OK. Beställ en hel laddning med saker du du är på gång.

I just wanted to share with you that I just cooked your Masaman curry recipe, and I absolutely loved it. I have been trying to cook Thai ever since spending a few weeks backpacking through Thailand in 2000, I even took a cooking class there. But I have not cooked anything so wonderful and authentic tasting until I got your authentic ingredients and cooked with your recipe. The curry was totally restaurant quality, the blends of spices totally soothing to the palate.
