I want comfort food ordered this and was surprised not heavy even though it is creamy full of flavor loved it.
I think this is consistently the best meal on your menu. Keep making it. I love the flavors the doodles everything about the fish. Well balanced.
Best I had!
Why so good!
Tender! Love it!
This is scrumptious! It does not taste like a vegetarian meal because it is very hearty and the cous cous portion is huge. The meatballs did not heat very evenly in the microwave but I can't stop eating for the 30 seconds it would take to go reheat because it is that good. The cous cous is perfectly fluffy and filling.
Veggies were fresh and very tasty. Burger was very bland.
Excellent meal! Loved it!
Excellent meal! Very tasty!
get more moisture out of the veggies next time. after reheating the dish was basically sitting in a centimeter or two of liquid...
great flavors but the tortillas fell apart after re-heating. better to serve them on the side next time.
This was only ok. The chicken I had was not breaded as it appears to be in the photo. The lemon flavor was very mild and the zoodles tasted like they were just seasoned with just salt and pepper. Pros were that I could tell by the taste that it was a very healthy meal.
Great, fresh food at a fair price! Keep it up will order again for sure.
Very good. Probably the best dish here so far.
Everything was excellent. Sauce and potatoes were fantastic! Pork nicely seasoned. The sauce went perfectly with the meal

So good! I love the Brussels sprouts side dish. It complements the butternut squash very well. I like that extra sauce for the ravioli was included on the side.
This dish was sooooo delicious!
Sooo good! Accidentally ordered three servings of this as opposed to one, but ended up eating each serving for dinner that night and then for dinner the next two nights! Highly recommend
a little too hospital food-y
mashed potatoes could be a little creamier in texture.
Good flavors, but the zoodles got a bit soggy
Yummy yummy mmy
Yum! I love how tangy the sauce is. I chose to microwave the dish because I'm lazy. The potatoes still tasted good but they would probably be even better if you reheat in the oven.
The chicken was a bit dry. But the taste was excellent.
Didn't love the peaches
Pretty good. The spinach was perfect, and the rice was interesting in that the orange flavor was significant and it was kind of sweet.
The meat was so tender, the mashed potatoes were amazing. And the habanero sauce packed quite a punch!
Great meal. Loved the potatoes especially!
Wasn't my favorite. The portion was decent but the flavor was lacking. The sauce wasn't great. Would have preferred a teriyaki sauce
Loved the dish! But unfortunately, ordered 3 portions but one had definitely less (smaller ) meat portion than the rest.
Really delicious. Perfect for lunch.
Ordered 2. Portion sizes were really different in each entree
spinach was really tasty!
very good! would prefer a side that is healthier than mashed potatos
I did not enjoy the flavors of this meal (at all). The watery sauce didn't help and the presentation is different than pictured. Would not order again.
Everything was cooked very well. Sauce is amazing and brings these simple ingredients to the next level.
Way too many peaches. Would have been nice to have quinoa or rice to cut the strong balsamic flavor.
Very fresh flavor!!
Great portion size; juicy pork.
Loved the steak and berry sauce. The parsnip mash was way too sweet and chunky.
Delicious but not enough meat
I liked it. It did need the sauce otherwise it would be dry.

Arrived poached which was perfect but there was no sauce or other ingredients added. Someone forgot to finish preparing the meal. Better quality control needed.
Sooooo good!!! Surprisingly super tasty!!
the sticky sauce combo with veggie and fish didn't really work for me. It reminds me of nato too much.
Tasty, but the bone made it a bit challenging.
my husband ate this and thought it was very good
This dish is extraordinary, Wow.
Neil : 07/17/2017
Steak was tender and juicy, sauce was sweet with a little tang. Potatoes were mushy, but flavorful. Really enjoyed this dish.
Really good. Very simple and clean. Will order again.
The worst meal I've had so far from cook unity. It was just ok and there was barely any chicken or spinach. Definitely not worth $15.
Finally a dish with a good amount of food! Excellent.
I need more of this! Yum!
Enough portion. Love the creamy chicken.
Carol : 06/20/2017
Very tasty was chicken was small and leathery
The roasted potatoes turnes out to be french dries. Not great. Steak & onions were delicious as always.
A new favorite. One order sadly came without the lemon cream sauce. :-(
One of my favorite meals.
Nancy : 06/17/2017
Best I've ever had! Although I think there should have been a side of wild rice. Other than that it was perfect.
Loved the habanero sauce
Pork was rubber
Legit tacos. And I'm from El Paso Texas
Kim : 06/12/2017
This was ok. The sauce was really good. The chicken was bland and dry.
Very Nice! Will order again.
Chicken was over cooked and dry. Thank God it had a good sauce. Otherwise inedible.
I had to drive to my mamas house to smack her
The hype is real. They're a bit hard to eat being reheated, but it doesn't make them any less delicious.
One of my favorite dishes!
The peach and balsamic combo is amazing! I will definitely be ordering this again.
Very delicious! Especially the sauce! Wish there was more kale though, but otherwise really good :)
Chicken was good, but Im not sure if peach is the best combination. Meal wasnt big.
Terrible. Was not able to eat. Chicken was a weird consistency and the sauce was very sour.
Would prefer a healthy grain instead of jasmine rice - faro would be great
This was fine, but don't remember much about it one way or the other. I'd say about 3.5 stars.
pretty awful...i wouldn't think it would be difficult to make ravioli with tomato sauce but ....
Very very good!
Was very well done, should have been rare considering reheating. Not enough meat.
Rice was a little too al dente for me, but the chicken, spinach and orange sauce were delish!
One of my favorites!
It was excellent. I like to eat healthy and would like more low calorie selections like this.
Tune looked discolored. I was afraid to eat it.
The picture looked like the chicken was more like a cutlet.
Rebecca : 05/05/2017
A very healthy and delicious meal. Chicken looked great. very appealing. loved the flavors.
Sauce was way too hot! Potatoes were good but salty.
Delicious! Really enjoyed our meal -- incredibly flavorful but light!
Loved these. Ribs fell of the bones, kale was flavorful and the herbed potatoes were unbelievable. I need to find the recipe!
The steak was inedibly tough and tasteless. Had to throw it away. The "roasted potatoes" were more like soggy fries, but thankfully they had a bit of flavor. Worst meal ever from Cookunity. Likely my last.
Rebecca : 04/25/2017
did not like the meat
Tuna seared perfectly, love the rice!
jacques : 04/02/2017
Not easy to reheat The indicated timing -14mn in a 400F oven - is not right
Just love it!
Flavor is great, but microwaving as instructed led to very well done steak. Surely there's a way to end up with medium rare?
Usually I don't like fruit flavored chicken but this was really good and ive ordered it a couple of times now
I didn't receive. It's bad delivery.
I didn't receive it.Where is it ?
Amazing. I mixed up the sauce steak potatoes and onions after I heated up, was so good. Made the potatoes soft and juicy!
My previous meals have generally been really good so I was hoping for a great dinner. Unfortunately, there were only 3 small pieces of steak that didn't taste fresh at all (tasted like they had been reheated several times/old) and the potatoes lacked taste. I was pretty disappointed.
It was hard to separate the meat ball from the bread without it breaking into pieces.. Tasty though... also did not get any utensils or my cookie :-( ... Otherwise, was great and fast delivery
Delicious! Tuna was perfect and coconut rice is our new fave!
This was really incredible. Quality of the Tuna A+ Rice and sauce delicious
This was one of the best Cook Unity meals I've had! You guys always do a great job <3333
Excellent. Appropriate portion size also.
A yummy standard.
I wish they would send these the old way bc now i have to separate the veggies from the meat and tortilla to eat it warm
Pretty nice. Maybe it would be great to have little bit more sauce. It was lacking it.
This meal was more than wonderful. I i've never tasted such incredible spinach I could eat gallons of it so good. The chicken and the rice were great too and the sauce loved it
Delicious. I made a mistake and he did the tuna for two minutes so that was not good but it was still delicious I just have to read the instructions the next time
The ribs were tough and fatty. It was the first meal I've gotten from cook unity that wasn't good let alone terrible.
Orange sauce was fab. made even the spinach taste better.
Sauteed spinach was great. It ended there. The rice was not good. Why was there a cup of half melted butter in with the chicken? Not a pleasurable experience.
I never leave reviews - ever. But when I tried this dish (and I've tried a ton on CookUnity) I knew it was my new favorite. This is amazing -- where do I begin? So filling. Great quality chicken. Delicious sauce. Flavorful sautéed spinach. And the perfect flavors throughout!
Way too small for the price and not enough meat on the ribs.
Love these tacos but I think I cooked them too long in the oven and the tortillas dried out a bit. Would've been better if the filling could be heated separately from the tortillas. Nonetheless they tasted great!
Aimee : 12/19/2016
So delicious! I didn't use the tahini sauce as the chipotle sauce is my preference and was so good.
delivery person got into an altercation with a pedestrian, threw our food in the street and ran away, so we didn't get to eat
Tuna was high-quality and nicely seared. Coconut rice complemented it perfectly.
Rib sauce was perfectly tangy
Ilka : 08/27/2016
I really enjoyed the salad, the olives were unexpected and of very good quality. The falafels were fairly moist and delicious. But I love tahini and somehow I missed it here.
Loved the salmon. Would have preferred two veggies instead of the pasta and more broccoli.
Wonderful flavors, nice rare tuna. Very happy with this meal!
Thanks! It was just as amazing as it looked in the pictures! Keep rockin'!!!
Delicious and very prompt.
I thought the meal was good, not great. The salmon was tasty but a little bit overseasoned in my opinion. The portion size for the salmon was good but the orzo was too small. I would try again, depending on the dishes on offer.
the pasta was good, but the flavor was a bit specific.
I didn't have but my husband said it was very good. Now when I am out in the evening he can have a healthy dinner at home.
Was disappointed with this one. I've had it in the past but this time it was all cheese ravioli instead of 3 different kinds as described! :(
Nice surprise. Didn't know what to expect except there would be tortellini. Very tasty, light, not spicy. Even my children ate it.
Not your frozen cheese raviolis. Each one has a distinct flavor. The sauce is not over bearing so you can really enjoy the ravioli flavor.
Another wonderful Funky Friday dish! These ravioli's were off the hook! Such a huge portion!
