It's on the mild side but great smells and taste of mild spices, subtle.

A bit bland

Not bad, just not that great either. Quite a thick texture, which is a matter of personal taste, but the main issue for me is that the flavours are a bit bland. The advertised herbs and spices in the ingredients just don't come through that well and the spicing is very mild.

Not Good At All

I was looking forward to this but was really disappointed. It had an unappealing, mealy, stodgy texture, very little spice and a predominantly tinny taste of tomato paste. Dhal is such an easy dish to get right. I had a couple of mouthfuls and had to throw the rest away. It didn't taste anything like any Indian food I've ever tasted!

We buy this regularly

Good curry for a vegetarian, my husband has these regularly. Nice and tasty. Not too hot, but you could add spices easily if you prefer it hotter.

Chunky and Delicious

Loved the texture and flavours. Nutty chickpeas.
