Poor quality food for Finest - Tesco take notice
I have bought this very many times over the years, it was my favourite curry. I stopped buying it a few months ago because the rice was terrible, it was more like mashed potato, and there was no meat in it. Also, it seems the flavour had changed. Tesco, you are letting your customers down by using sub-standard ingredients and sub-standard manufacturers. Please change it back to how it was. I’ll keep looking at the reviews to see if it has improved.
Enjoyed meat madras
Tried this beef madras with rice and i thought it was very tasty. There was enough Meat for a meal for one and sauce was rich and quite flavoursom. Read the other reviews and was worried no one gave a good review but I enjoyed it
To be avoided - it's horrible
For some strange reason, despite following the guidance carefully and cooking in microwave for 7 mins, the rice turned dark brown. This happened once before. It was still edible but not nice to look at. As for the curry, I could hardly find any meat in it whatsoever. Perhaps just two extremely small pieces. I won’t be buying this again.
Very poor now - has deteriorated over past few months. Little beef and of questionable quality and the rice just sticks together into one unpleasant mass. I used to enjoy this but it is not what it once was.
Absolutely disgusting. Had 3 chilli marks, was soooo hot, yet tasteless. Dustbin straight away, UGH.
Full of leaves
Very poor quality seems to be full of leaves and little of anything else.
Not as tasty as it looks
Enjoy most of Finest curries but this didn't taste as good as it looks. Lacking in flavour.
The absolute worst curry EVER
Bought this as a treat during lock down. Felt more like a punishment. Absolutely dreadful . Overriding flavour was tomato. Do not care to think where the beef came from but had the texture of a suet dumpling. Finest -seriously. Just awful. Have a second one in freezer - any suggestions as cannot give it to the dog
It’s been a while since I’ve had this and I’m afraid they’ve changed the recipe. It used to be nice but now it’s dire: Meat was fatty and spice was hot with no trace of the subtle coconut flavour from the previous recipe. Rice was poor too: gone is the fragrant pilau I’d had before, only to be replaced with spiced basmati with no character whatsoever. Definitely one to avoid.
