Was hesitate on buying this as it is very cheap I didn’t know what to expect from the taste. But to my surprise it was delicious . Great for those days you can’t be bothered cooking rice .

This came out so dry, but somehow still clumpy. It's so bland. I prefer Tesco's boil in the bag rice instead, it's worth the little bit of extra effort.

Great value

not very palatable

1 stars

Not very nice, tasted of fusty old books, even the birds would not eat it, not good Tesco, sorry, but not up to your usual standard.

Tastes just as good as uncle Ben's I have this wit

I don’t understand why this has got such good reviews. It’s a horrible, greasy, flavourless, disgusting mess

Surprisingly enjoyed this rice.

5 stars

I don't like to use microwave rice as I know it's not good value for money, especially when rice is so easy to make- however, given the current circumstances I was having trouble getting basmati rice for my weekly chicken paneer, and so I used these instead and I do have to say the rice was really nice and fluffy - I hate to say it, but my partner preferred it to me making the rice (though that probably says more about my cooking skills!). Good and easy option for those who don't have much time to make rice.
