Light, savory fillet. Sweet peas compliment it well. Rice is tasty.

A little over cooked and the flavours were just plain to me.

Delicious. Held up well to reheating in the oven and the small scattering of peas and wilted greens was just right. Steak was tender and fresh and the fingerling potatoes were excellent.

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!

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.

Stuffing was bland and tasteless. It also only had one little piece of kale.

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.

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.

The peas on this were awful. There were dried leaves and pieces of sticks.

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.

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.

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.
