As soon as it was delivered we had to try it. It was a bit hotter than a different brand we had. But this was very nice and tasty. So pleased we found this site. Looking forward to ordering more.

I am very happy with the speed of the deliveries. The products were of high quality. I will definitely use this online shop again. It's a pity that fresh fruits are not available because of the current pandemic.

Not Hot

Like too many products, the packaging on these noodles hints at a spice heat that just isn't there.

The noodles, however, might just have the best texture I have ever tried, remaining firm and chewy throughout. These do actually taste well of seafood and the aroma is very appealing
