The taste is good & the rice is good, but I'm not

2 stars

The taste is good & the rice is good, but I'm not buying it anymore as the chicken is so hard and chewy and the wrong colour is almost black with a very dark gray & not very tasty, infact all your currys I have bought recently are the same the chicken is very hard and chewy, so I don't know what kind of rubbish chicken you're suppliers are using, but I'm not prepared to feed this weird tastes hard chewy chicken to my body any more. Tesco curry ready meals used to be brilliant tasty sucolant tender soft chicken breast, but not any more Tesco standards have gone right down hill when it comes to some of those ready meal. Why don't Tesco do something about it change suppliers or something, why has your ready meals quality standards have gone down so much? when they used to be brilliant, Tesco you have gone backwards on this one, please sort it out, thank you.

Excellent love it

Excellent love it

Not brilliant but not bad

3 stars

Not bad although there's a lot of messing around with the two separate compartments needing different cooking times. Rice came out slightly dry but at least it was recognisable as rice, unlike the glooey mess in the Thai Chicken curry. Useful as a standby.

Expired and expiring product. NOT 5+ days!

1 stars

We ordered two of these. One was already expired, having expired on the eve of us receiving delivery. Other one was going to expire the day after delivery. Taste of non expired item was otherwise good but wouldn’t purchase again because of short fridge life and misleading picture that shows product to be 5+ days whilst it was in fact a lot less than that.

Slow quick meal

3 stars

Can you imagine the sales being lost on this item because you cannot cook in the microwave from frozen. Instead you have to defrost for 12 hours before you can microwave. Pathetic. 12 hours is a long time to wait for a quick meal !!! Other wise taste is reasonably ok.

Tasty sauce, ok(ish) rice, truly awful chicken

2 stars

Like every Tesco ready meal I've tried lately, the chicken in this is shocking; a weird grey colour, and an odd mix of mushy & chewy. Every other supermarket manages to source decent (and in some cases, very good) chicken for their meals, but it seems beyond Tesco to do so. It's a pity because the sauce is one of the better ones and the rice isn't too bad, just a little dry & hard at times.

Poor taste. Not a true Tikka Masala taste.

2 stars

Poor taste. Not a true Tikka Masala taste.

PLEASANTLY SURPRISES

4 stars

After writing a fully justified scathing review for the Tesco Sausages and Mash I was worried that this too would be totally indedible. I was pleasantky surprised as it tasted really good ! :-) .It was very tasty and I would DEF buy again

Tough Chicken Lately ...........

3 stars

Not sure if Tesco have changed supplier or Recipe. but disappointed lately, chicken is quite tough, shame really, as it was the tender chicken that made it better than the cheaper German brands ready meal .....

Pleasntly surprised

5 stars

For a microwave meal I was pleasantly surprised nice bits of chicken and a decent sauce I get this regularly
