I love Branzino. It was done to perfection. Not dry at all. The size was very ample and loved the sides.

Delicious. Perfect--one of the few truly flawless Munchery dishes that I have tried. Most are good, but not 'awesome'. This one definitely is all that!

My best Munchery meal to date. Everything tasted fresh & flavorful--especially that cherry chutney! Reheats well too.

The picture portion was definitely more than the actual serving (received 4 mini slices). The sauce was the star for this meal.

Fish together with ponzu really delicious and the snap peas, bok choy, and sticky rice perfect with it. Surprisingly filling for something tasting so light. Would get again when I want something simple.

Very disappointing, the steak was full of fat and unedible, but the rest of the dish was very good!

The picture is misleading in that it shows three slices of pork but it only came with two. I ordered two of this dish, for myself and my husband and they both only came with two slices so was disappointed. The taste was fairly good.

A little too salty... But it tastes good. Could have used a little more sausage,. It only had about 3-4 small pieces of sausage. I'll order it again tho.

Very bland nothing special

This arrived looking in limp condition and quite unappealing, and with a measly portion. Perhaps a quality control oversight? Munchery issued credit and will discard, though that means having to go look for other food this weekend... Grrrr.

Too much pepper

By Luis Padilla
At first, the portion looked small but once I transfer all the steak pieces and potatoes, the portion was more than enough. Wish there was just one more thing as a side to this delicious meal.

A bit too salty.

Tasty - next time I will eat the pesto separate. It was flavorful enough without the pesto in the soup, but the pesto on its own was delicious.

Reheating steak is difficult to do well. I thought it was under-seasoned. The fava side was good.

The sauce should be sweeter and thicker

Very generous portion of pork, cooked perfectly. Maybe needed a bit more sauce.
