Great rice. Brilliant value!
I discovered this rice because it was the only 5kg bag at our local Tesco. We eat a lot of rice and this has become our staple. The reason why some of the comments here are negative is because you need to wash this rice very well to remove some of the starch before you cook it. It is also better to add it to boiling water when you cook it. And you will need a lot less water and heat than usual as it prefers gentle steam. I have used it to make jollof rice, fried rice and plain boiled rice. All came out very well.
Not good. Cooks very sticky and gloopy even after
Not good. Cooks very sticky and gloopy even after removing starchy water after boiling. Not acceptable for Pakistani cooking. The rice has no fragrance either. Bought it for the first time. Quite expensive for such low quality rice.

I'm finding it rather curious with regard to some of the negative comments about this rice?. We eat a fair amount of rice and contrary to the negative comments I've read, we very much like the Laila brand rice which has now become our Basmati rice brand of choice. We purchase it in 5kg bags which is correctly stored in our utility room and it is delicious with good texture when cooked correctly and we've not had any issues with the rice whatsoever, therefore all I can say is that those people who have had issues with the product are either very unfortunate or are perhaps not storing or cooking it correctly but whatever the cause, we've certainly had no issues and from our experience of this product I'd highly recommend it!
Good quality easy to cook flavorsome
I have tried various brands of basmati rice and this to me is top quality. No strange smell .Easy and quick to cook ,full of flavour. I use it on average 3 times weekly. My family when they come to visit and I serve this rice they always comment on how good it is.
Great rice, use a cooker to cook
great rice, have been using for years
I didn't have a good experience with this rice
The rice had an off flavour and smell which after using half the bag I could no longer tolerate. I threw the rest out. Presumably it hadn't been stored since harvest in optimum conditions. It might just have been the batch that I bought that was unpleasant but I wouldn't want to risk buying it again.
Just cooked this rice today and from the point of
Just cooked this rice today and from the point of preparation washing it fell to pieces...quite strange and had to throw this batch away. Once cooked there were random parts of the grain that hadn't cooked properly. At one point I wondered if it was fake rice :o/ Overall not too impressed with this brand so wont be using again!
