Free from taste
The version I had was as titled above, plus the words "Free from". Hmm. I'll tell you what it was free from: taste. The chicken had no taste, the rice had no taste, the sauce had no taste. That covers it! The word curry seems meaningless, there was no bite in the sauce whatever. This was the most bland and tasteless meal I have ever bought from Tesco in 30 years.
Confused about why there are so many bad reviews, love this ready meal would definitely recommend! Rice is fluffy, sauce is the perfect amount and the chicken is not chewy like some other ready meals.
Bit fiddly but nice for a change. Quite a good flavour.
Not at all tasty
Tasteless. Chicken reasonable size but not enough sauce. Would not buy again.
Requires OVEN and then Microwave.
Needs an oven to cook half of it and microwave for the other half. This is not a ready meal as persay. People buy these to take to work only to find you can just pop into a microwave, most work places dont have ovens. Quite deceptive putting this on the Ready Meal isle. Really needs to be better labelling on this,
Walk past and don't buy...
What's going on Tesco, the chicken portion size is rapidly shrinking - you're getting too mean!
Tasteless and bland
Unfortunately I agree with the other recent reviews. The chicken and rice are fine but the sauce is completely tasteless and bland. I usually love this dish and other supermarkets do much better versions of it. Come on Tesco, you can do better!
I'm sorry to say I was quite disappointed with this dish It was very bland - almost tasteless. The chicken had the texture/consistency of chicken nuggets (but is labelled as "Chicken Breast") but was tasteless and the sauce was just a big nothing. I was looking forward to trying this as I had noticed it on the shelf and it looked nice - then I watched a programme about Japan and they mentioned this dish, so I was really keen to taste what it was like. Major let down I'm afraid. Usually I find Tesco branded items are fairly reasonable quality. I won't get this again, but if I was given one (say) I would definitely doctor the sauce to liven it up with some ginger or curry powder. Perhaps put some Sushi pickled ginger on top or on the side. It it just flavourless and bland. I don't know what this meal is meant to taste like, so maybe it is totally authentic, I couldn't say.
Not a ready meal at all
It’s not a ready meal, you can’t just put it in the microwave- the chicken needs the oven, which most workplaces don’t have... I made the mistake of trying to put it in the microwave still, for 5 minutes, and it just came out rock hard and inedible. The sauce isn’t nice either. Overall a huge disappointment.
Hardly resembles Katsu curry. Also what is the point in having a meal which half of which goes in the oven and the other half goes in the microwave? Portion size is a joke.
