Doesn't deserve the hate!
This Thai red curry ready meal really doesn't warrant such negative reviews in my opinion, especially given its health credentials. It's true that there's not tons of chicken in this, but the portion of rice/quinoa is generous, so I was full up when I'd finished the meal. I added a couple of simple garnishes to mine to spruce it up a bit (some spring onion and red chilli) - quick fixes to turn a ready meal into something more flavourful and satisfying!
Terrible sauce, no chicken
This is bad. The sauce is not only flavourless but it has the consistency of snot. it is a shame because the rice/quinoa mix is great and the edamame beans are nice. Only 3 thumb-sized pieces of chicken in the pack so it is not worth the money. AVOID.
A plastic bowl of Thai hell
I don’t even know where to start with the vile flavours I experienced when eating this meal, the sauce tastes like a gypsy thumped a sack full of limes into a pulp, then chucked the pulp into a wheelbarrow full of bleach, mixed it up with a Slazenger trainer then poured it into a plastic bowl, chucked a few baby sweetcorns in and then sprinkled half a pack of fridge raiders on top for the chicken. I’m still so angry I wasted my dinner hour eating this, it was one of the worst experiences of my life.
Ruined by horrible tasting sauce.
This promised so much but delivered so little. On the face of it, it's a nice set of ingredients with a Thai Red Curry sauce and there is the problem. The sauce is horrible, spoiling a perfectly good set of meat and veggies. I wish I could give a description of the flavour, but I can only go with wrong, unpalatable and thrown in the bin. It's one of those undescribable but instantly unpleasant mixtures of unidentifiable ingredients that has none of the flavours I expect from Thai red curry. In short - avoid. Maybe try this green curry instead, which is a much nicer product. https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/271907774
Chose this as a ready meal because it has more veg in than most but couldn't finish it. Just bland or something. Preferred the tandoori chicken and roasted veg in this range.
Delicious aromas as it was cooking, however sadly the taste was bland, and only contained a couple of very tiny pieces of chicken. Will not be buying again.
Hardly any sauce.
I would expect Thai Curry to be swimming in sauce as I have been to Thailand. Definitely not the case with this dish. Most disappointed. I shall not be buying again.
Or just chew on a lime...
Gotta love tesco for all they do well, but sorry guys, this is not one of those things... I think someone went a bit mad with the lime. I actually can't eat it and thats saying something! Wouldn't buy again. Perhaps a little less citrus in future?
Chickened out of that one did you Tesco?!
Got to say 2 tiny pieces of chicken was embarassing for 3 pounds. By tiny I mean less than 2cm Pieces. I'm shocked Tesco I really am!
