'As good as your local Chinese restaurant or your money back!' Who can resist such a claim? Particularly when your local Chinese takeaway is excellent! So we bought a box reduced to £1.50 from a supermarket where every little counts, along with the necessary chicken and vegetables. As we opened the box we were pleasantly surprised by the separate stages that you had to go through, seemed authentic. A packet of this powder, and a pouch of this sauce etc. and of course the freeze dried noodles. I began to look forward to it. My wife began cooking while I put the children to bed and it smelt delicious, really very good. And then it came to adding the ... Read the complete review

I was so excited to try this kit as it sounded gorgeous from the description but i couldn't have been more wrong. The noodles were like cardboard, the mushrooms were chewy but what was worst out of everything was the smell when we added the sauce to the pan. It smelt like chemical vomit. Words can't even explain how foul tasting it was. My boyfriend described it's taste as perfume and sick mixed together. Do not buy this product!

I was looking forward to this meal. The kit itself is very well presented and I had high hopes for it. It was all very promising until I added the 'rich black bean and ginger sauce'. A really unpleasant smell, like burnt rubber, started to fill the kitchen as soon as it started to warm up. I continued on, hoping it would taste better than it smelt but it was in vain. I'm not at all fussy with food but both myself and my partner found it completely inedible, nothing like the black bean sauce you might get at your local takeaway or even out of a jar. I can't believe anyone would find this product enjoyable. I think I can say this was the worst meal I've tasted in years. We Read the complete review

I was quite excited to try this recipe out as I love mushrooms and black bean sauce. So I had cooked the chicken with the included marinade, added the mushrooms and veggies, and then went to the last step, adding the black bean sauce in. Immediately after pouring it in, there was this horrifically foul smell from the pan, it was like a very chemical-like and sharply acidic. Smelt like really bad vinegar, but only worse. I thought the smell might go away, so tried some of the food but had to spit it out and throw all the food away as every time I tried it I got nauseous. And this is from me, someone who eats everything and rarely complains about any kind of ... Read the complete review

I have been shopping online with Ocado for over a year , and I am very happy with the service I receive. Quite often, along with my order, Ocado slip in a new product to try. This week I was delighted to see a box of Wanchai Ferry. I'd seen the advert on the TV for these recipe kits and was keen to try out this 'freebee'. There are a number of different recipe kits made by Wanchai. This review is for the Xiang Gu Chicken kit. I do no speak any form of Chinese so was pleased to see a translation on the box!. Apparently Xiang Gu (pronounced shang goo!) means Shiitake mushrooms. There you go! Don't say you never learn anything new from Dooyoo!! So this ... Read the complete review
