  • Delicious and so easily

    Delicious and so easily adaptable to suit individual tastes. I liked the amount of ginger and star anise, but would add more Lime juice next time. I added a variety of veggies (bok choy, red capsicum, carrot matchsticks and sliced bamboo shoots) to the simmer basket with the chicken, it was so easy to serve the noodles, then chicken and vegetables using tongs, then just pour the broth over the top after carrying the bowls to the table, no fuss, no mess, no waste! Thank you.

  • The chicken flavour is nice.

    The chicken flavour is nice. But there was waay too much ginger and star anise for our taste. We'd 1/2 it next time and add in more Brown suger.
