This was great - meatballs were tasty and not dry at all and loved the thickness of the pasta which allowed for the sauce to absorb the pasta nicely

Nicholas
01/04/2018

Salmon was incredibly tasty

cara
12/11/2017

Fiancé loved it. I tried it and it was very good portion size is good.

Ayesha
12/11/2017

This meal was great

SHOSHANA
12/11/2017

My Salmon could have been cooked more

Deana
12/08/2017

This was a good meal, it had a lot of flavors going on. It was healthy and low cal and everything came out of the oven perfectly heated. The chicken was a bit tough but other than that it was a very good meal overall.

G
11/10/2017

It looks simple but very delicious beef curry. I wish I had more.

Alexander
10/25/2017

Seriously delicious

Crystal
10/23/2017

Simple and delicious. I especially enjoyed the side veggies.

Aimee
10/12/2017

I repeatedly get the tail end which is my least favorite cut of salmon. Veggies way too spicy.

Adam
10/05/2017

salmon was perfect! ratatouille was yummy

Kathryn
09/29/2017

One of my favorites!

Brett
09/29/2017

A little oily.

Philip
09/28/2017

Something was wrong with the fish. It's taste was such that we didn't eat more than a couple bites. We typically love salmon.

Christina
09/26/2017

Nice, but wasn't very spicy

Shaunlee
09/25/2017

It was a little sparse. Seemed a bit underwhelming.

Jennifer
09/21/2017

Not good. Mine was covered in large amounts of spice making the each bite all spice sandy gritty. Chicken good once the spice was removed. Would. Not recommend. Disappointing and again not good

Jennifer
09/21/2017

So much spice made the veggies dry and over flavored. The chicken was tasty once the thick layer of spice was removed. I have loved the Zaatar chicken in the past but someone must have dropped the jar of spice on my dish. The side was wilted cucumbers and tomatoes. A salad I enjoy but this one was not fresh.

Karen
09/18/2017

flavorful, but I there were no raisins to give it that "touch of sweetness"

Serge
09/14/2017

Great flavors and a sizeable portion. However, the side salad had tomatoes that did not smell fresh.

Karen
09/14/2017

The beef was cooked well and tender, but I didn't like the seasoning. Not traditional curry.

Eytan
09/08/2017

So much flavor. Every meal this chef makes is amazing. Highly recommend

Mohammed
09/06/2017

Tastes good and as expected.

Valerie
09/02/2017

Obsessed. I want more please. And please let me know when it's on the menu again. I added it as a favorite yesterday but didn't receive an email alert today that it was back. I'm so sad I missed it!

Barbara
09/01/2017

The coconut rice overpowered the dish

Karen
08/24/2017

salmon was very tender and the sauce was wonderful.

Shazia
08/17/2017

Salmon cooked perfectly! Sauce was great and I'm not event a mustard person. Vegetables were amazing!!

Eytan
08/09/2017

Love this.

Roman
08/02/2017

One of the best dishes I have had delivered!

Hilarion
07/31/2017

OMG! PLEASE SEND THIS WHENEVER ITS AVAILABLE!!!!!!!!YUMMMM!!!

Katherine
07/30/2017

Absolutely delicious!!!

Romy
07/30/2017

Disappointing , I'm afraid. The chicken was super dry, chewy and cardboardy. The cauliflower was very salty and drenched in half a cup of olive oil, making it a very high/calorie side.

Lisa
07/28/2017

The salmon had such a strong fish taste that it was hard to eat and the sauce which had great flavor couldn't be enjoyed. The kale didn't have much flavor and could have been better.

Dorian
07/27/2017

Enjoyed every bite.

Erin
07/27/2017

This was absolutely delicious! Loved!

Natalie
07/25/2017

Delicious sauce, chicken was tender.

John
07/22/2017

Surprisingly filling, even though there was less volume of food than in other dishes. The sauce (was it a pesto of sorts) was great on both the chicken and the quinoa.

John
07/22/2017

The mango sauce was really tasty. Salmon tasted fresh even after a couple of days.

Nicole
07/20/2017

Chicken was very rubbery! Not good!

Eytan
07/19/2017

One of the best meals by cookunity without question. If you see it buy it...

Gregorio
07/16/2017

incredibly tasty

Brian
07/15/2017

Loved the pesto, and the salmon was perfect.

Julien
07/14/2017

This is one of my faves. You should make it available more often. Like everyday. And then I would eat it everyday. And my life would be that much more wonderful.

Sarah
07/14/2017

Would love it to have more spinach!

John
07/14/2017

Salmon and the mustard sauce were great. Not as much a fan of the greens.

Rick
07/14/2017

Good, but oily

Harrison
07/13/2017

Excellent meatball serving (4!)

Erin
07/13/2017

Amazing! Loved the generous portion of the kale and butternut squash along with the salmon.

Azzrah
07/07/2017

Overall a wonderful dish, very flavorful. The salmon was a bit under salted for my preference but an easy fix! I'd order this again!

Julien
06/30/2017

A classic. A hall of famer. A show stopper.

Kara
06/29/2017

It was okay. Not as good as I thought it would be. I wish the chicken was cooked a bit more. I probably wouldn't get it again.

Dorian
06/29/2017

Honestly, the best chicken I've had in along time. So impressed!!

Julien
06/23/2017

A classic. Pure goodness. Firing on all cylinders. Will hit your taste buds like pow! Pow pow pow!

Nicole
06/10/2017

my favorite dish!

simon

Very good, will order again

simon

Good, hearty, tasty

Katherine
05/31/2017

so delicious!

Erin
05/27/2017

One of my absolute favorite meals! Never disappoints! Perfect portions of all items, and all are equally tasty!

Darlene
05/26/2017

Delicious.

Kenneth
05/26/2017

Totally enjoyed this meal

kristin
05/22/2017

I order this one often it's really good!

Francesco
05/20/2017

good taste and value

Francesco
05/20/2017

very good

Erin
05/19/2017

Everything was perfect. This is one of my new favorite meals. Loved it!

Kenneth
05/11/2017

Delicious

Kenneth
05/11/2017

Delicious except for the sauce which i didn't like & fortunately tasted before I put it on the meal.

theresa
05/08/2017

loved the meatballs!

Rebecca
05/05/2017

This is a really delicious meal, hot or cold!

phoebe
05/04/2017

I microwaved it at work the day after I ordered it so it might have been better the day of. Fish is pretty good and definitely filling. Just slightly less fresh than I have had before with another salmon meal from cookunity. Vegetables a little sparse. Would recommend sticking everything in the toaster and not microwaving if you have a toaster. All in all, solid meal just not my favorite from Cookunity.

Wincy
05/03/2017

Yum!!

Justin
05/01/2017

Great pesto

Rebecca
04/25/2017

really really good

Sara
04/21/2017

I appreciated the subtle flavor, but this was not a curry. A curry by definition should have sauce/gravy, where this was more of curry flavored beef cubes, which could have been more tender if simmered in sauce a bit longer. Also, one of the reviews mentioned it came with brown rice, but my order had what appears to be par boiled rice flavored with cumin, hence the brown color.

Gail
04/13/2017

Love, I want the recipe!

Alex
03/31/2017

Far exceeded by expectation! The sauce was divine and added a lot to an already delicious meal.

Lynn
03/31/2017

Portion size wa samall for the price but quality was very good

Alex
03/31/2017

Decent flavor. Homemade style, not over season. My bowl barely had much quinoa or greens in it. Wasn't half the food as the other entree we got. Sort of disappointing first experience

Andrea
03/31/2017

Better meatballs than our neighborhood Italian restaurants!

Alyse
03/22/2017

Love this meal and I've ordered several times, however this past order the sauce was lacking and there was half the amount of chicken. Very disappointing.

Nicol
03/21/2017

Food did not show up

A
03/16/2017

Found a meal that my picky daughter 8 yrs old can enjoy too! An alternative than the regular meatballs w/tomato sauce!

Melanie
03/13/2017

Very tasty!

Nancy
03/08/2017

So good!

Tiffani
03/08/2017

Tasty.

John
03/08/2017

Best dish I have ordered. Large portion. Excellent

sarah
02/23/2017

Noms.

Saudia
02/23/2017

Always good and dependable. The dish I have ordered the most.

Sarah
02/23/2017

Delicious!

Jaclyn
02/23/2017

The cauliflower was amazing. Wish there was more of it, and honestly almost wish it was somehow the main meal.

Jamie
02/15/2017

So delicious! On of my favorites.

William
02/09/2017

Salmon cooked perfectly. Moist. Sauce was delicious. Def order again

Andrea
02/09/2017

Nice combo of ingredients but would've been better with a more flavorful dressing.

Pierro
02/03/2017

Flavorful and satisfying.

Andrea
02/02/2017

Love this dish!! The texture of the salmon was perfect and the sauce was delicious. The cauliflower mash was better than typical mashed potatoes.

Francesco
02/01/2017

Tender chicken and very tasty.

Carla
01/28/2017

absolutely perfect taste!

Denise
01/26/2017

The Salmon was cooked perfectly. I am not a fan of Ratatouille, so don't want to comment.

Craig
01/25/2017

Delicious, really!

Anvesh
01/19/2017

Please make it again

Daniel
01/19/2017

Perfect!

heather
01/10/2017

This was so good and hearty. Perfect for the weather. Will order again!

Christina
01/06/2017

The texture of the mashed potatoes was a little funny, but the taste of this meal was unbelievably good. Great addition to the menu. Totally satisfying and a real comfort dish.

Christina
01/06/2017

This was pretty good. Sauce was perfect.

melman
01/06/2017

Was Delicious! one of the best meals I ever had in here!

heather
01/05/2017

SO delicious!

Christina
12/19/2016

This was very hearty and tasty. Thank you for providing the grated cheese as well! Only downside was didn't reheat fully in the microwave. Definitely recommend oven heating.

Aimee
12/19/2016

ok

Yolande
12/16/2016

DELICIOUS!

Zach
11/30/2016

This might be the best thing we've ever ordered

Pilar
11/18/2016

Simply delicious! From the roasted salmon in the perfect point after being heated, plus the original mashed sweet potatoes and the tasty coconut sauce, every ingredient deserves five stars!!!

Alyse
11/18/2016

Loved this! The mashed sweet potatoes were so good and a perfect blend with the coconut curry sauce

Alyse
11/18/2016

Chicken was rubbery. Did not care for this at all.

Christina
11/17/2016

Very yummy, but I wish they would pound down the chicken to make it a bit thinner. Had enough humus leftover to dip some pita in.

Christina
11/17/2016

Very interesting and tasty - also extremely satisfying.

Elizabeth
11/02/2016

good dish- the chicken was really rubbery tonight though

Shelly
11/02/2016

My husband loved it!

jed
10/27/2016

This is my favorite dish from CookUnity! It's the perfect dinner with a delicious piece of salmon and savory fettuccine to compliment it.

Julie
10/27/2016

Microwave instructions were correct. Delicious buttery salmon texture. Butter squash was browned perfectly, caramelized.

Debbie
10/26/2016

Better than my last restaurant meal. Salmon was excellent. Risotto probably got a bit crunchy reheating in the oven rather than microwave.

Julie
10/16/2016

Delicious! Great flavor :)

Jess
10/13/2016

I loved this meal! I was iffy about the craisins but that and the sauce made it even better. I ate it with the honey glazed carrots. It was a perfect meal and it was also filling. Would buy it again!

Jess
10/13/2016

I think the portion was a little bit small and if there was a low sodium option, I would definitely buy this again in the future. Other than that, it was delicious!

Amanda
10/12/2016

It was quite good, but not great. The meatballs were delicious, but I wish it came with more spaghetti, and that the spaghetti itself were a bit more al dente (which might not be possible, considering it's delivery?)

Madeleine
10/03/2016

My first meal and i was very impressed. Incredibly delicious and easy to prepare.

April
09/29/2016

Excellent!

Erin
09/20/2016

Love!!!

Pamela
09/15/2016

Salmon was amazing, however risotto doesn't travell or re-heats well.

Rebecca
09/08/2016

Amazing! The minted sauce is the best.

Gregory
08/31/2016

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Good!!!!

Meredith
08/17/2016

I was a little disappointed that the greens were not the vibrant green seen in the photo...but then I took a bite. The flavor of this dish is absolutely wonderful. I could hardly believe my mouth. It would have been nice if I could have finished the dish off in the oven (as recommended) or in a skillet like in the picture, but since I was at my office, the microwave was the only option. Thanks to the genius of the chef, the dish did not suffer for merely being nuked.

Aimee
07/28/2016

Terrible. Very little protein and little variation of greens.

Aimee
07/28/2016

Good.

Gabrielle
07/27/2016

Salmon was great, greens were okay

Alex
07/27/2016

Delicious!

stacy
07/07/2016

A real winner! The seasoning was perfect from the salmon and the cauliflower mash to the garlicky broccoli and the delicious dill sauce. I would definitely order this again!

Jerl
07/06/2016

Fine

Jessie
06/29/2016

Well prepared, good flavors. Portion was too small, and the rice was not flavorful.

Alyse
06/25/2016

Loved this dish! Very filling and flavorful. I chose to heat up the chicken instead of eating completely cold as recommended. Would definitely order this again!

Rob
06/23/2016

Very tasty and very healthy. The sauce was good too. It did not look quite as good as the picture looks. My order came 20 minutes later than the delivery window. I ordered at 625pm for a 715-8pm delivery and it came at 820pm.

Rob
06/23/2016

The risotto was very good, the salmon tasted very good but the actual piece of fish had some blood/bright red parts which I have never seen before on salmon. I had to eat around it.

Brian
06/02/2016

Delicious! My favorite salmon dish of Isaac's so far, and they are all good.

Shilpi
06/01/2016

The salmon was delicious. The pairing with the sweet potatoes made the dish overall a little bit too sweet. The rice was bland.

Aimee
05/26/2016

Good but needs mixed grilled veggies .

Aimee
05/25/2016

Good

Aimee
05/25/2016

Tasty.

Richard
05/25/2016

Food has not arrived. 1.5 hours late. And they called 30 minutes late to say there were out of salmon. Had bad trouble like this the first time. Probably will never use service again. It's a shame your good food is limited by your poor tech and service.

Eileen
05/23/2016

Chunks of chili pepper no lemon or lime. Washed the chili off before cooking

Eileen
05/23/2016

Not crispy.

Denisha
05/23/2016

Salad was my fave part. Everything paired together well, the salmon seemed a bit underdone. I don't know if it was due to the microwave because I followed instructions to the T. Yet, overall I would recommend to any and everyone. Keep up the good work.

evan
05/14/2016

Salmon was very fishy tasting and over cooked after following heating instruction. Side of rice had little taste

Alexander
05/12/2016

Salmon was perfectly done.

Elizabeth
05/09/2016

Very fresh and the chicken was tender. Sauce was a good addition and I love the squash.

Brooke
04/29/2016

I don't usually enjoy curry dishes, but this was delicious!

Daniel
04/27/2016

Loved the cauliflower potatoe mash; would rather have more of that then the broccoli side (wasn't anything special). Salmon could use some more seasoning and for medium rare microwave instructions should be even less than 1 min 45 secs...1 min 30 secs would (likely) do better!

Aimee
04/20/2016

Salmon was OK. Would have been nice to have had a vegetable with the risotto (and less risotto).

Aimee
04/13/2016

His best salmon dish of the three I've tried.

Aimee
03/30/2016

Salmon was dried out.

Eytan
03/23/2016

The best meal I had , out if 100 orders from munchery and maple.

Celia
03/16/2016

Awesome, just a little more sauce as it gets a bit dry once you nuke it at home.

Jessica
03/05/2016

The fish was delicious. The side was a lot of rice and lentils , which were good, but it would have been better if it had a little less rice and lentils and a vegetable was added.

Sarah
02/23/2016

So tasty with very moist salmon and delicious vegetables on the side!

kevin
01/27/2016

The best meal at CookUnity! Excellent flavor

Spencer
01/23/2016

The pictures do not match the dish I was presented. The flavor was great. The dish was good I just expected something different. The roasted potatoes was very small I mean a super small portion.

ilkka
01/14/2016

Perfectly cooked. Love that sauce. Thanks!

Darcy
01/13/2016

Loved this dish. Very simple, nice combination of flavors.

Yann
12/30/2015

My wife didn't really liked it compare to the pakistanese one we can find around the corner . It was too dry

Matias
12/26/2015

The food is ridiculously good, homemade and superior quality. Love the personal touch and the story of each chef.

Joey
12/08/2015

The ziti was flavorful and the extra cheese was a nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Joey
12/08/2015

The salmon was surprisingly moist and I really enjoyed this dish.

Nicole
11/28/2015

this was good but there wasn't enough curry sauce included in the meal. otherwise I liked it

Zamurrad
11/21/2015

I am in love with CookUnity

Eileen
11/16/2015

Just delicious. Moist and tasty

Eileen
11/16/2015

Yummy,, not gummy or sticky pasta and very good meatballs

Jaime
11/14/2015

Quite delicious, the squash wasn't too flavorful and not cooked enough

Betty
11/12/2015

We really appreciate your using organics and healthy ingredients. So far we've loved the meals we've had.

Daniel
11/01/2015

Was good, 8/10

Eileen
10/28/2015

All of the salmon dishes are delicious. This one particularly so and the sauce for the top, yummy and perfect.

Naila
10/24/2015

Ridiculous. Didn't want it to end.

Eileen
10/13/2015

I love this farrow & pistachio salad. Salmon was nicely seasoned.

Norberto
10/05/2015

Great dish, would totally order it again. Portion was big, meat was perfectly cooked and a great combination with rice and seasoning.

lori
10/02/2015

salmon was not fresh. i had to throw it out. the beans were very good.

Naila
09/22/2015

good, but not particularly special

Stephanie
09/21/2015

Delicious! The meatballs were perfect!

lori
09/12/2015

one salmon not as fresh

Eileen
09/10/2015

Different and delicious

Eileen
09/05/2015

I love salmon so I did not expect to be delighted with the taste of a prepared salmon. The salmon was perfectly cooked and seasoned. yummy.

Richard
08/18/2015

Perfect curry flavor. Chard and brown rice an excellent side!

Abeer
07/14/2015

I got a free meal coupon from the Yelp Elite peeps, and used it immediately to order a baked salmon with faro dish for dinner that night. It was easy as pie to order, got delivered exactly on the dot at the beginning of my half hour slot, and tasted great! I baked it for a bit in the oven, and then devoured it - perfectly cooked salmon, nutty faro with fresh veggies and roasted pistachios, a small light salad, and a big cookie for dessert. Well done, CookUnity. I'll give your goods a try again sometime.

Stanley
07/08/2015

Nicely moist chicken in a lovely, lemon sauce. Definite meal to reorder

Jennifer
07/02/2015

Delicious! Lots of great flavor and generous serving size. I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day.
