These are large pieces of pasta, which has a “resize” effect- it makes the meal look quite small in the pan, because you can count the number of pasta tubes! The pasta is overcooked, a horrible squelchy soft. I’ve had worse (think school canteen meals) but it could do with more bite, texture-wise. It could… [Read More]
The noodles have no texture, flavour or vigour. Nicely surprised by real pieces of chicken, albeit tiny. Authentic Chinese flavour, but no SUBSTANCE. Feels a bit like eating the sauce from a chinese dish, but without the dish. Tasty enough, would have again. Serving suggestion: add your own pieces of chicken/mushrooms. Though, admittedly, this kind… [Read More]
Unlike the Ainsley Harriot cous cous I’m used to, this requires a lot of faffing about- not simply a case of adding water and waiting! I had to heat oil in a pan, stir fry the cous cous for a minute, add water, cover it, remove from the heat, leave to stand for 5 minutes,… [Read More]
Very good first impressions. Gorgeous smell, looks amazing. Fairly creamy, but nothing like a korma. This is just like the sauce you get with a biryani. Contains sweet potato, which I’m not a fan of, but this is tasty nonetheless. This is a mild curry which has a slightly warm feeling as it goes down… [Read More]
Thick sauce. A little unpleasant; I wanted more kidney beans and meat and tomatoes, this doesn’t feel substantial enough. Very hot! Has a nice bite to it. The kidney beans have a pleasant texture, not too soft. This dish needs more of them! I’d also like bigger pieces of beef mince. Tasty, and certainly hot… [Read More]
Eurgh. A bit bland, stodgy and tasteless. Overly sweet. Not having this again.
Really gorgeous thai curry smell. Don’t let the word “soup” fool you- I tried eating this with a spoon and struggled! This is principally a noodle dish and you’ll need chopsticks or a fork. Lovely, clearly fresh ingredients, healthy stuff, one of your five a day. The sauce is just creamy enough, and has a… [Read More]
Looks very creamy and appetising but has an alarming lack of taste. Why put unhealthy ingredients in something if we can’t even taste the benefits?! There’s very little ham to speak of, and even less mushroom. A satisfyingly thick sauce, but leaves you wanting. The ham tastes suspiciously like spam and doesn’t do much for… [Read More]
Tasty, indulgent creamy sauce, and plentiful pieces of succulent chicken. Nice, smoky bacon, though this makes the dish too salty.
Tastes like it’s been made with the cheapest ingredients. Sauce is overpowered with tomato and is otherwise a bit flavourless. There is only the merest sprinkling of cheese, which disappears when you stir the pasta as per the microwave instructions. The sausage is quite tasty and almost makes up for the carbs that it is… [Read More]
