  • We have used Rafi spice box for a few years...we were in York a few weeks ago...spent a few pounds on mixes....... just used a made to order Madras curry, beef.... honestly I'm 70 .. this is one of the best I have ever tasted..... amazing...
  • I have visited York with my partner this weekend as I went to university here and love the city! My dad came to visit me here a year or so a go. He is a massive curry fan and was thrilled to find Rafi’s and see spices blended for him right there in the shop! There were even recipe cards for each spice mix. He was excited and stocked up but ended up leaving his spices in a hotel room! I came in today to get some more and was served by such a lovely lady who had us both giggling. I told her the story about my Dad and she popped two extra spice mixes into my bag! Made my day and was just lovely 🥰. Spice mixes look and smell amazing and she gave us tips on how to store them. Cannot recommend this place enough! 💜
