The katsu sauce was really good and the coating was nice and crispy but the fake chicken was bland and slimy yet fibrous - and made me gag. The rest of the family didn't notice any issue with the texture and were happy with them. I definitely can't stomach them so won't be buying again.
The Katsu sauce inside was pretty nice and the "me
The Katsu sauce inside was pretty nice and the "meat" part looked good at first, but has a bit of a tough texture and is very bland - tastes faintly of peas and not much else. It's not the worst vegetarian thing I've had and probably worth a try if it's on sale, but it isn't worth the full price for me.
Iffy texture delicious taste
I think it tasted really nice and i appreciated the difference from traditional kiev flavours but, like others have said, the texture was disappointing.
Taste good, texture off-putting.
Enjoyable katsu flavour, crispy coating, but the ‘chicken’ substitute is slimy and stringy in texture. I’m pretty sensitive to texture so it might just be me but be weary if this is something you find off-putting. Definitely won’t be having again.
Having decided to be vegetarian a couple of months ago, we have been trying a range of different meat substitutes and dishes, most of which we were not keen on at all. These are delicious! No sauce leakage like other reviews. A nice crispy crumb coating. I had one in a wrap for lunch and it was so tasty. Texture seemed the same as "normal" chicken keivs to me and I am very sensitive to texture, it is the main reason I haven't enjoyed other meat substitutes I have tried. I will definitely get these again.
Overly soft and slimy 'chicken' substitute (think frog spawn), filled with so much overbearing katsu sause you can taste nothing else on the plate. Ruined the meal - will not purchase again. Looks lovely on the packaging though. A great example of marketing over content.
These are lovely, nice Katsu sauce inside and good
These are lovely, nice Katsu sauce inside and good crumbed outside. Some leakage when cooking but nothing to complain about. I will definitely be buying again
I absolutely loves these, unfortunately it seems my partner has a soya intolerance so unlikely to buy again but would 100% recommend if you like katsu. Nice texture too.
Tesco Kickin Katsu Kievs
These were awful. It was like eating a sponge, sauce, very little, had leaked out.
Great texture and a good size but seriously lacking in any katsu flavour, just a vague warmth to it. Another disappointment from wicked kitchen
