  • has bad smell

    1 out of 5

    This used to be an okay rice and we used to buy it but not anymore! The color is just off and it has a bad smell to it that even after several washes, does not seem to go away. I thought what I have was just a bad batch but bought it again on a different store and the same bad quality.


  • Quality has declined

    1.5 out of 5

    I used to buy this rice all the time but I have noticed in the last batch which was purchased 2 weeks ago there is no taste and the quality has significantly declined. I agree with the other reviews that it made the family sick


  • Worst rice ever

    0.5 out of 5

    I couldn’t finish this
    Had to throw it away
    No Basmati flavour or texture.
    Just gross


  • on 3 occasions this rice gave my kids food poisoning.

    0.5 out of 5

    We always bought this product without problems but the last 3 times (2 different packages) a few weeks apart, this rice has given my two young (6 and 8) children vomiting and diarrhoea (bought on special from Woolworths in the last month). I will be paying for a test of this rice. Please let me know if anyone has had the same reactions on this forum.

    We always bought this product without problems but the last 3 times (2 different packages) a few weeks apart, this rice has given my two young (6 and 8) children vomiting and diarrhoea (bought on special from Woolworths in the last month). One had to go to hospital a month and a half ago, the other thought he was dying (two weeks ago) and we were set to go to emergency but after 8 hours of almost constant vomiting and diarrhoea (every 10 mins), he slept and recovered. We couldn’t feed him for the whole day as he would just throw it up. We only slightly suspected the rice before (thinking just a coincidence and the adults aren’t sick but last night my daughter had the rice again and this morning from 6am is throwing up and and has severe diarrhoea.

  • I always buy this one!

    4 out of 5

    This has become my household’s favourite rice. I always buy it when on special at half price. It keeps well, cooks quickly and tastes very nice!


  • Just ok

    3 out of 5

    I bought these rice because of the word “Basmati”and I am not happy because ts not basmati. They easily break while cooking which means they are any other ordinary rice because basmatic rice doesn’t break and keeps their shape and they have that beautiful aroma which these rice was lacking. Its not basmatii so I will not buy it again.


  • Nice quality - Get it half price

    4 out of 5

    My family really likes this rice. Seems good quality. It is often half price so we grab a bag and find it lasts a while!


  • Disappointed

    0.5 out of 5

    DO NOT BUY THIS if you are after the aroma, fragrant, mouthfeel and texture of basmatic rice. I bought this expecting basmatic rice but was extremely disappointed and flabbergasted that this was sold with the word ‘Basmatic’ on the packaging.

    This rice is essentially long grain white rice which you can get at a much cheaper price with supermarket homebrand white rice.
