    Worse than ever basmati rice

      Worst basmati rice on the market. Go for India Gate Classic, no regrets with that choice. Though price is close to around $27 for 5 kgs.

      Try this… It's often half price too…

      • Okay, will wait for the woolies one! Thanks!

    • If it aint broke…

      I've had this before. Some of the other brands are noticeably better. More fragrant/better texture but I was still happy to eat this on the 1-2 times I bought it. (But sounds like its hit and miss with some bad bathces?)

      • Excited to try other ones.

        I’ve probably had over 20 bags in the last few years. Never really experienced any fragrances though haha

  • Bought once, never again.
    Highly doubtful that these are basmati even

    • Its long grain basmati

      Plenty veriaty of basmati rice available in market

      India gate classic only beat market

    As everyone said, pretty low quality.

    Coles and Woolies brand do better than this.

    This brand takes the wooden spoon for Basmati rice.

    The Woolies Daawat brand (5KG for $10 standard price) https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/129814/daa... is much better.

    for it's been random, sometimes very good, sometimes a bit of smell and bad taste.
    The bag I have now is really good, and honestly it's been mostly good

    Why anyone would buy rice from another country like India or Pakistan is astounding.

  • -1

    These rice are not really quality basmati rice, the grain is so thick and does not taste good for a basmati rice.

  • Tried it once, never again…
    India Gate Classic is nice.
