Simply delicious. Yes lentils were bland, but texture was nice. I enjoyed the combo of flavors. Please include more saffron yogurt. Almond crusted tofu was delish- my son ate more of it than I did!

All the textures were very good together and the tofu was good quality and cooked just right but the dish was very bland for my taste.
3 Stars
AMAZING portion size. Love the grapefruit addition. Tofu was a bit bland.
3 Stars
A mixed meal. The texture of the tofu was nice, but bland. The lentils were watery (rendering the tofu soggy) and under-seasoned. The sauce was tasty but confusing--what was it meant for? Everything needed it, but it didn't stretch to the full plate.
3 Stars
The tofu was good but the lentils were really bland.
4 Stars
Good, but I thought the tofu should have been a little more flavorful. A little bland. but I would still order again.

I make tofu all the time but can never achieve such a water-free texture. It was super filling with the lentils. I was confused about how to serve it; with the salad on top? I ended up eating the salad separately. It was fresh and a nice contrast.

Tofu had almost no flavor (without the saffron yogurt, which isn't to my taste). Perfectly serviceable lentils.
3 Stars
This meal felt very light and healthful. The tofu breading was great, but I wish the tofu inside had been seasoned. Yogurt sauce was delish and salad was fresh. Lentils were very dry and bland and would have liked more sauce or flavor to these.
4 Stars
Wonderfully crispy tofu over a bed of well-seasoned lentils, exactly as advertised. I enjoyed the citrusy, spicy contrast of the salad at the side. Well done, Chef Batson! Thank you...
5 Stars
I loved everything about this dish! I ended up using balsamic vinegar because the sauce it came with seemed a bit thick but everything else was lovely!
3 Stars
The lentils were tasty. The tofu itself was bland tasting. Maybe it could have been marinated first? The saffron yogurt was also underwhelming in flavor so I skipped it completely. Thanks.

This dish has potential: The lentils but the tofu was quite bland. Perhaps smoking or marinating it beforehand would help.
4 Stars
Love the green lentils. The sauce with Lentils is awesome. The paired saffron yogurt, oranges are perfect. Tofu tastes a bit too plain though.
5 Stars
This was great! The lentils and tofu were delicious, and the fennel and watercress nice and spicy. The saffron yogurt sauce had a very mild taste and I ended up not using it. So happy with this meal! I'll definitely get it again! Thanks, Chef!
