Had to stop mid meal to write this review. This was amazing. Would be cool if you could do brown rice instead. But A+. My new favorite (much better than all previous favorites)

All of the 5 star reviews made me want to try this. However, I was let down by another Munchery dish with far too much salt. I could only eat half of it. Disappointed.

Quite disappointing. Quite similar to airport vending machine food. Mushy, tasteless cherry tomatoes. I really liked Munchery the first time I ordered from the company, but the choices & quality seem to have declined. Too bad.

Tasty. Could have used some more broccoli, maybe brown rice and do without the actual slivers of ginger in the sauce.

On my first order, the meat–two pieces and a scrap–was overcooked. On the second, it was completely well-done and gray–no trace of color. The pieces were fat-laden scraps. This after a call to customer support. Nothing like the picture. What a shame!

Excellent ramen soup! The noodles could have been a little more authentic, but the flavor and the pork was very good.

Truly horrible. Impossible to serve and eat the long slimey noodles. Chicken was grey and fatty. Broth tasted like dehydrated Lipton soup packet.

This kind of tasted like airplane food. Good airplane food, but still airplane food. The mushrooms were also a little weird. I would just order Chinese delivery next time I want beef with broccoli.

The portions are great except the two tiny florets of broccoli. More like a garnish

I eat way too much salt but the bean sauce was way too salty for me. The saltiness was so dominant no other seasonings came through.
