I'm sorry but this rice did not taste anything at all like pilau rice. It was more like white rice and clumpy. I got this as a sub but I will definitely not be getting it again.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Surprisingly good

Bought this rice when my local shop was sold out of fresh pilau rice and was pleasantly surprised. It was quick, easy and tasty. The rice has a pleasant aromatic quality that was unexpected for this type of convenience food.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Quick and easy

A tasty staple in my house. Try to have this to cut down on eating so many potato products.
