The dish is perfect except for the broccoli which doesn't seem to be seasoned. The potatoes are exquisite, and as usual, Munchery does salmon justice.

Bit salty. Very tasty however. A lemon wedge would have also been nice.

Taste was good but the meat had a lot of fat which made it hard to eat.

This dish was certainly one of my favorites from Munchery. The fish was delicious, and the glaze for it was fantastic. I highly recommend it.

Okay, but not a wow like some of the other salmon dishes. Wish it came with a different side other than bok choy.

Very tasty! But that bok Choy....what is up with that? Tasteless and limp, please replace that with something more tasty, and visually pleasing is always nice.

Delicous! The salmon is tender and moist, and the miso sauce with the lemon is perfect. It went well with the furikake rice and the lomi-lomi tomato. The baby bok choy was not seasoned AT ALL which is very strange. I had to add salt to it.

It was so salty making it inedible. Totally missed the mark with this one.

A little more sauce for the portion size would have been better, especially for kids. And no guidance on best way to heat the sauce to keep noodles and veggies hot. I ended up having to use the microwave, which I do not love. .

Too much garlic!

This was a surprisingly delightful and satisfying dish--ample and tender beef too! 1 star off because peanuts were mixed in and I had to fish them out to add after heating or they'd be mushy--and no instructions re sauce: I put on meat before heating

Very unusual dish! It was pretty tasty and I loved the fresh tortillas and mushrooms. I'm not sure about the lime-cotija crema. Still thinking about whether I like it.

The actual queso portion was very small. And the price seemed high for what it was. Chipotle chips and guacamole is about $3 for a similar portion and the only addition is the queso.

Disappointing meal. The chicken and beans were bland. The rice had golden raisins in it. I ate about 1/4 of the meal and threw the rest away.
