5 stars

These are so quick to prepare and very light yet satisfying, with a dash of light soy sauce. The filling is tasty, savoury and exactly as you would find in Chinatown. Really happy to get the authentic taste without travelling to a restaurant.We really like them for lunch. Thankyou Itsu.

Delicious with cute paper bags

5 stars

So delicious! Comes with tiny paper bags for each individual bun which was handy for taking on a picnic, handed out all 6 and everyone was asking about them to buy more. Highly recommend!

delicious and easy to make

5 stars

They are delicious and very easy to make. Feels like you're having a takeaway, only much cheaper. The duck alternative is also very nice.

Strange bitter taste....not for me!!

2 stars

Found these had a weird bitter flavour that wasn't pleasant. Have tried these & the Chicken ones and both not as good as the Duck option. I use them as a light lunch with a bit of salad but the only ones with any real normal taste is Duck. Had these for lunch with a friend and she said the same before I had said anything - the rest went in the bin sadly. Also, feel that the paper bags that come with these to microwave in is a total waste of paper and adds to the price no doubt. Sorry!!

The actual bun is as light as a cloud but the filing isn't very nice, far too sweet
