"Delicious and super fast and easy! I used some leftover white rice from a Chinese restaurant and followed the recipe exactly."

"This was ok... We felt it lacked pizazz."

"This was good and everyone ate it right up... One of my daughters did complain that the rice smelled funny... I'm thinking maybe it was the ginger or another Asian spice in the fried rice seasoning packet? Anyway, the rice was a nice side to the egg drop soup and the sweet and sour popcorn chicken that we made - which were submitted by the same person. Overall - a great meal!!!"

"The cold rice was bizarre and made the rice kind of cool even after cooking it for quite a while. Next time I make it I'll have the rice hot."

"Will not make this again, did not like the fried rice seasoning packet. Will look for something from scratch."
