Not up to Plant Chef's usual tasty standards!

1 stars

I would go as far as saying I am Plant Chef's number 1 fan (excusing this product), that coupled with the fact I have never reviewed a product before in all the time I've been shopping with Tesco, goes some way to explain how much I hated this product. I was really excited to find an alternative to a 'roast' but everything was wrong for me. There is a (too) large covering of herbs strong with garlic across the top, the texture of the 'meat' was unpleasant and the taste was terrible, I managed only a couple of mouthfuls. I also had a bad tummy the morning after which I attribute to this. The other eater whilst they ate their portion (which is sizeable) admitted they wouldn't like it again either.

Enjoyed it

4 stars

I liked this, I didn’t find the texture soggy like some others have said but we did cook it a little longer than said but was still very soft. Enjoyed the topping I would have again as it’s well priced. Nice to see the range expanding too.

Disappointing, avoid!

Weird tasteless spongey texture, very disappointing


1 stars

So excited to try this but completely disappointed. It has a nasty soggy, spongey texture and the taste is overwhelmed with a pungent covering of herbs. Tried one piece, made me feel ill, like I had a lump of fatty tissue in my mouth. Binned the lot! Such a shame.

Love it - this will be a regular purchase now

5 stars

I really loved this - it has the texture of somewhere between chicken & turkey breast and really hit the spot for me. I made some gravy and roast onion for the side - so I had the full works. I honestly can't understand the negative reviews. Maybe if you undercook it the texture would not be so nice but mine came out perfect for a lovely Thanksgiving treaty dinner. It's going to be great to have a substitute for Sunday roasts and I'll be getting these regularly from this point - especially at this price!

The best vegan roast I've had

5 stars

Really enjoyed this, as did my meat eating husband. Great flavours, texture could be a little firmer but didn't put us off at all. Fantastic for a proper meat free roast dinner!


2 stars

Looked impressive, made into a chicken crown shape and smelt good especially when in the oven, however apart from the taste of garlic and slight heat from pepper it was relatively tasteless with the texture of soggy bread with a crusty bottom. Very disappointed and won't buy again.

Better without the garlic..

4 stars

I hated the parsley and garlic on top as it was cooking in oven it stunk the place out with to much garlic,I scraped off all the stuff on top and washed it off,the meat free roast was lovely without all that gunk on top,if I have it again,I will scrape all that off before I cook it..i hate garlic..

Awful! Made me feel ill

1 stars

I had high hopes of this as a veggie roast but it was awful. Very garlicky but that's not the problem for me. It's the texture of it that's really nasty. It made me feel sick, so its all gone in the bin.

This was horrible! It had no flavour whatsoever an

This was horrible! It had no flavour whatsoever and I was very disappointed. Look elsewhere!
