    Never heard of it. Best ones are Lion,Phoenix and Rose brands IMHO.Sunrise Jasmine is ok.
    Might be good deal for those who want to buy in bulk…

      we tried this one and is much better than sunrice jasmine, texture is even better than rice from asian shops. Those mentioned above sold at asian grocery are more aromatic but almost $2/kg. For rice conoisseur then nothing beat freshly harvested rice sold in SEA countries, by the time these arrive at Australian port fragrance only remains in the name unfortunately. The best rice i've eaten were sold in restaurant along the Mekong river in Laos, those were heaven, and they must've been loaded by our standard because they only eat jasmine sticky rice lol

      For the price it's a good buy.

    It’s a jasmine

  •  

    g0t rice?

  •  

    Plenty at Westfield Doncaster - Woolworths, near the deli dept.

  •  

    Just heads up, this rice is a product of Vietnam, not Thailand
    Not implying one is better/worse, but the taste between the two is subtly different

  •  

    It is available online too.

    Shows as "Sorry, temporarily unavailable" at 7 Perth metro stores near me.

    it's from Vietnam, taste much worse than Thai's IMO
    Golden Phoenix is now around $26/10kg
    There is a reason why it's $10 cheaper
    But it doesn't really matter to most people
    The Jasmine rice served in most Asian restaurants is from Vietnam anyway

    Rice is pretty plain in flavour. It’s what you eat with it, that’s more of a factor imo

      No, there's way more than that
      Decent rice will be fluffy, no name brand will be crunchy and unpleasant
      once you've had the 'home brand' nasty stuff it'll be an eye opener

        Wash it and let it sit in water for at least 2-4 hours if it's cheap crunchy stuff

        Ps. sorry for offending the rice connoisseur who negged me :) ;)

          Wasnt me who negged :)
          Surely, who's got time to wait 2hrs to soak rice :p

          Ps not a connoisseur at all, we just grew up on rice

            @payton: Pre-plan ;) :P

            When you make sticky rice you have to pre-soak for minimum 4 hours (overnight is best) or it doesn't cook right.

        Guess I'll avoid then, since I don't like soft fluffy rice. I prefer it a bit harder and drier. Not crunchy though. I've never had crunchy rice unless it's stuck to a clay pot, which is actually quite nice.

          I wasnt commenting specifically on this brand. Years ago I bought a bag of Sunrice or something from Colesworth and that wasnt great. Rice left in rice cooker for several days would quality as crunchy, when they turn yellow and dry out

          •  

            @payton: You aren't supposed to leave it that long.

            I don't leave it more than one day. The next day it will get a bit dry. I spray it with water from a spray bottle to regain some moisture, then cover it with cling wrap before microwaving it.

    Is this nationwide?

  •  

    Chinese "粘米" mean Sticky rice?

  •  

    While we're on the subject, this is the brand i go with. Consistently good over the years. One bag had pantry month in them but could get it swapped.

    Is this a nice long grain like you can get at asian grocers? The normal white bag bulk basmati rice from Woolies is much shorter.

    Geez, you guys must eat a lot of rice if $16 for 10kg of rice seems like an amazing deal :O
