The meat I got was super chewy and had a ton of fat, so that was a bit of a bummer, but the taste was so on point! The sauce is phenomenal! (Needed more of it!)

By far this is the best meal I've had from Munchery. The meat is always cooked to perfection. Even after nuking for 2 mins, it remains juicy and tender. OMG...and the beans. The flavor is off the chain! But I prefer trad'l sweet slaw.

I'm kind of picky with regards to mashed potatoes. I was left licking the bowl! These were amazingly delicious mashed potatoes. Kuddos to the chef!

This is 2nd time for this dish. For something so seemingly "simple," this is a delicious dish with great flavor. Also, given what looks like a rather skimpy portion, it is actually quite satisfying and doesn't leave you hungry.

Needed more soup and spicyness should be optional/on the side.

Maybe this was not my cup of tea in general but I gave it a try. I did not care for it and have nothing to compare it to since I don't eat Thai food. Try it but you may or may not like it.

The beans were ok. The meat however was extremely tough. Was extremely hard to cut the meat, and impossible to eat and chew.

Pretty much the only time I spent $5 on cooked Edamame and thought it was worth it. The furikake and sriracha-sesame oil make these soybeans taste like crack.
