Bland and dry - the flavours were alright, but both me and my boyfriend agreed that we'd never eat this one again. Simple, though.

Totally delicious and extremely easy to make. Highly recommended. All the family loved this dish even my 9 year old twins.

These burgers were delicious, great combination of flavours! Agree with others, they are a sloppy consistency like they're going to fall apart as soon as they're in the pan but held their shape well!

I am just about to make this for the second time. They are amazing! I made them with sticky rice, I do have to say that it would be better with 2 of the burgers as 1 wasn't quite enough for a filling meal. But really great, I'm just going to double the recipe! Thank you!

Burgers are light, tasty and very easy to make, so is the salad. Served the burgers with soured cream and french fries.
