It did not resemble basmati rice at all. Looked discoloured, unappetising and tasted like the packet it came out of. No fragrance. Bland. Chucked most of it away! Will not buy it again!

I bought two of these packs of rice. After cooking exactly to the instructions on the pack I found the smell and taste of the rice disgusting. It ruined my whole meal. I have read other reviews, I’m glad it wasn’t just me. Absolutely horrid zero stars

Smells & tastes vile

1 stars

This rice smelt and tasted extremely strange. I brought three packs of the same rice and they all smelt/tasted the same. They all had at least 2 years until the 'use by' date expired. I would give it zero stars if there was that option.
