    I just wanted to write and let you know I received my order and I couldn’t be happier with how well it was packaged and shipped. You’re my number one resource for authentic Thai ingredients, videos and recipes. I’ll post a review online, but wanted to say thank you.

    Thank you

    I received my order the other day and I am so pleased with the way everything was carefully packed and the quality of the items. Am very excited about using the Thai sticky rice cooking set.
    I am glad the New York Times mentioned your business or I might never have found you.
    Thank you for making authentic Thai food and cooking items available!
    Best Regards,

    I received my order package today and I am WOWed, overwhelmed, and so appreciative of your amazing generosity!!! When I placed my order for my fish platters and signed up for your free Christmas present, I thought that you would send me one of your wonderful items as a gift. But when I opened the box, you had sent me SO MANY wonderful Thai products that I love so much as a gift! WOW, you guys! Thank you so much! I am completely blown away!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you - and Happy Holidays to you, too!!! I am really going to have fun this holiday using all of the wonderful Thai ingredients and cooking up a storm!

    I love ALL of your Thai products, but I especially love the beautiful blue and white Thai porcelain dishes and the Zebra Head stainless steel products. I have slowly, slowly been collecting (as you know from my orders) some of your blue and white Thai porcelain dishes over the years and I now just about have the full set with service for four. These dishes are so fantastic! They are thick, sturdy, beautifully made, and stand up to constant use - always looking as good as new! Food always looks fabulous on this dinnerware. The Thai are not only fabulous cooks, but they have also mastered food presentation skills to make their dishes always look so beautiful and delicious. These blue and white porcelain dishes are the perfect canvas to display these culinary skills!

    I hope you and your beautiful and accomplished family have a wonderful Holiday Season! You have made our holidays even happier!

    Stay safe and healthy!

    Wishing you always the very best,

    My 6 inch stone mortar and pestle set. What a beauty! To be honest, I was worried it would be too large and take up too much real estate on my counter top. Silly me. Its Perfect and I cant wait to start using it. Thank you so much for making all of these wonderful products and ingredients available to us here in the US. Very best wishes from Sequim Washington.

    Linda. Ah ps. Thanks again for providing such beautiful young ginger. I'm really enjoying it and the shipment yousent to my daughter in Brooklyn was a huge success! Thank you!!

    Hi there,

    Many years ago already I discovered your website with all the great recipes to be found. In my opinion it's one of the best and most of all most genuine.
    Lots of sites can be found on YouTube but not all of them are really good - only when a thai person runs them then they are authentic I observed.

    Myself living with a thai wife for many years already in Switzerland and I always loved to cook myself.

    Her advice and your site are always a great source and help in making my cooking delicious.

    Of course I can never beat her with cooking but that's also not the goal. Fun in what we do must come first always. LOL.

    Thanks and best regards,

    Thanks for taking my call about the delay from FedEx. They finally delivered the 2 day shipment today (1 week out). Everything looks in good condition as you indicated it would hopefully be. Plan to use to make some curry pastes tonight and tomorrow.

    Thanks again for the help and the order. Great to find a good source for some of these hard to find items, at least hard to find in a small town in Minnesota.

    Will keep you in mind when looking for such items in the future.

    Great products! I made Gang Jued soup this week. The fried garlic that I purchased was an excellent addition to the soup. And, I made green curry with pork this evening. The Maesri green curry paste is excellent. It is the best green curry dish that I ever made, and the best green curry dish that I have ever had anywhere. Tasted very authentic. If you are a foodie and/or Thai food enthusiast, I recommend that you check out the products that this establishment offers. I look forward to trying the other items that I bought.

Cannot wait to try the salad dressings with dinner tonight and make some Pad Thai next week!! We live so far away from the Asian Market in Cary it is a major trip!! I was down to my last bottle of squid sauce and sweet chili sauce!! With Covid we just could not make the trip!! Thank you for providing our family with a great alternative!!

    Hello friends! Received the tao today. Very nice craftsmanship. Quick delivery. Great customer service. Tao arrived in good condition and packaged well. It is a pleasure to work with you. I will try using it tomorrow to grill some marinated thai beef to serve with sticky rice. Will send you some pictures! Thanks! You guys rock! Kelly and Eric Schulz

    I just finished my first serving of the MAMA Green Curry Noodles. Wow, they are delicious and taste exactly like an authentic Thai Green Curry. I love the heat and spice of the noodle, as it contrasts with milkiness and creaminess of the broth. These noodles are so good I'm going to tell my Mama about them.

    Pleasure doing business with you guys at ImportFoods and thank you for providing such a quality product!

    Got my kaffir lime leaves today. VERY fresh/shiny/stiff/tasty leaves. Just what I wanted. Thanks for selling good stuff!

  • Donna

    Rated 5 out of 5 stars

    Placed my first order which had several glass bottles and was apprehensive about how it would arrive. It arrived beyond my expectations! All the bottles were wrapped in heavy cardboard and other items were wrapped in plastic bags to prevent the possibility of spillage. Even the small plastic bag of powdered Kaffir leaf was taped to the invoice so there was no chance of missing it in the box! It is rare to see such care in packaging. Can't wait to start on some of the recipes. I am certain this will not be my last order!

    I got the 7 inch Granite Mortar and Pestle for my wife. After getting fooled by a local asian supermarket and buying what was advertised as a Thai granite mortar and pestle, only to find it was a bad knock off from China, we were searching online for an authentic one. After a long search we finally ended up on IMPORTFOOD.COM.
    Let me assure you... when you buy from this vendor you are dealing with an honest, extremely knowledgeable and helpful person. When the item got here we were so pleased with the care taken on the shipping package, and the mortar and pestle is the best quality and is an authentic Thai product! My wife is very pleased with it. Thank you so much for everything.

    The customer service I received was amazing! I got the 7 in Stone (Granite) Mortar and Pestle for my girlfriend as a birthday present, and not only is it an amazing product and even better than I had hoped, but they really went above and beyond. I mentioned something in my order that I wanted included as a message, and told them that my girlfriend loves puppies. So these guys literally hand wrote a card with my message, and put puppy stickers on it. I was shocked by that level of personalization and I can't speak highly enough about these guys' service. Go ImportFood!

    Have always received the very best service and products! Import Food has most interesting educational food/travel/recipe Videos, I become hungry after watching them. I love the variety of fresh and otherwise difficult to find items here. The mortar pestle is authentic Thai and beautiful. Every food product I have ordered is of top quality. I highly recommend Import Foods and will return when needing to resupply. Thank you!

    I have been cooking since I was about 15 or 16 years old. I love cooking. Not much of a baker, but cooking over the stove, pots and pans, from a flash in the pan stir fry to tenderly cooked stews, I love cooking. Which requires preparation. And good cutlery, well, that is key in the prep time, right. This knife is incredible. I truly can say, I have not had anything like it. My disclaimer is, I am a friend of the owner of this business, but he knows I am not just saying this for him. And hopefully that will resonate with potential customers. You will not regret, in my view. What I think? Consistent, high quality product and service. Can't be beat.

    This is the SECOND Item that I have purchased from your wonderful on-line store. I also purchased a LARGE capacity granite mortar and pestle (six cups plus) some time ago and I am absolutely thrilled with its performance in my kitchen. I was inspired to purchase this Pork Vendor's Knife by several videos that I looked at on YouTube on a channel called Almazan Kitchen. He uses a knife similar to the one I am purchasing but yours is the only one that I have found anywhere that even comes close to what this man uses in his videos. I am looking forward to receiving it. Thank you so much. As always,
    it is my distinct pleasure doing business with you and your company! Cheers. I am a big fan.

    Hello to everyone at ImportFood. I received my Tao cooker and street vendor wok this past Saturday, and I'm beyond thankful. I hovered over the tracking information sent to me by Jerry as if I was tracking Santa Claus on radar. I patiently waited for the FedEX guy to show up--and when and he did, I think I may have scared him. Come to think about it, yeah, I spooked him, because the look of amazement, and possibly shock, as he watched a grown man run up to him with a silly grin on his face, he was quick to put down my package and retreat in his vehicle as if being chased by wild big game. I scooped up my boxes, tore them open immediately, and I have to say; I was just like a kid during Christmas morning. The Tao cooker was intact. No cracks, no blemishes. Amazing craftsmanship, the wok was packaged just as good and was flawless. I took a bunch of pictures and forwarded them to all my family and friends--they're envious, I just know it. I want to extend my thanks to everyone involved in this venture. The whole process felt very personalized, which is a great feeling. This is an amazing addition to my kitchen ware and I can't wait to cook for my family and friends. Thank you again!

    Hello. my Ovaltine (I grew up calling in Ovomaltine in Germany) arrived today in a very timely fashion, I might add. I am so pleased with it - it tastes just like it is supposed to taste, not like the chocolatey stuff they sell here under that name. How is that even legal?

    Thank you so much for selling such a great product.

    Hello, I saw you the other day at PCC Issaquah. I tasted your delicious Tom kha. It was really yummy. I assumed it had to be kept refrigerated. I would love to buy some but I live in SE Alaska, so transport might be an issue. Just to verify, does it need to be refrigerated? I'll be here in Issaquah thru Friday. I hope I can take some home. Please advise.

    Do you have a storefront or are you still strictly mail order? I have purchased items from you in the past and would love to drop by your store, if there is one. Thank you.

    IMPORTFOOD.COM RESPONSE: 'We are so glad you found us at PCC Natural Markets, our favorite local store. You can buy our Amazing Elephant Tom Kha at PCC in the soup section. It is shelf-stable for two years (does not need refrigeration). We use a modern cooking method, the best packaged soup in the world. We developed it here in Issaquah, and we do have some customers in Alaska - one gentlemen in Bethel orders it every few weeks! Please buy it at PCC then take it back to share with your friends in AK. We can also ship it to you via Priority Mail, after you run out and need more. Thanks for all of your support.'
