These are NOT on offer as such but I tried the Jalfrazi and Tikka Marsala both were excellent and the chicken content despite saying was actually quite a lot for the price even if they are slightly below par taste wise IMO! But of course you can adda little extra to suit your own taste.

These are the best tasting ready meals by far

And unlike the BIGGER supermarkets there not skimpy with the meat

Could not agree more, alot cheaper than my local tesco and a lot more meat in them

These and the Aldi ones are lovely.

I'm going to guess it's Thai chicken.

Not tried these but will. Have noticed that Aldi are learning some bad lessons from the big boys. Frozen meals were £1.49 for 400g. Now sneakily £1.49 for 375g.

Also one or two other items just 'creeping up'. This practice will not do them any good. Keep your eyes open with them...........

Food 4 Hours out of Temp.... Nice

Tried these and wasn't that impressed to be honest seemed quite poor in flavour, quite bland. I've not tried the tikka masala though as that isn't a flavour I normally go for.

I like the frozen curries from Iceland for £1.50 without rice. Also being frozen they don't have to fill the curry with a lot of shelf life extending chemicals that chilled products have. Rice is only 40p a kilo bag anyway which does a large number of servings and you end up with a lot more curry of higher quality. Yes I know Iceland are not famous for super high quality food but these are surprisingly nice and certainly I find Iceland food to be higher quality than Lidl's offerings generally.

not much flavour in these , but saying that my kids liked the tikka ones . but i thought there was no depth to the flavour of any as we tried them all also i found the chicken a bit chewy maybe im being picky but being truthfull of what i got from them

Probably tastes nice, but then all supermarket ready meal taste fine. It's where the ingredients are sourced from that puts me off.

Cheaper than the bigger supermarkets because the chicken comes from somewhere other than the UK

Lidl curries used to be made by the same company (Noon) that made them for Sainsburys, not sure if that's still the case as my Lidl has such big queues (mainly due to a lack of staff) that i've given up shopping there. Decent offer this though, i might have to pop back in...

The jalfrezi one is lovely and like others have said, lots of meat too. A bit like the curry you get in a wetherspoons pub

been this price for a while now

No mention of Lidl on the Noon site. Just Waitrose, M&S, Morrisons and Sainsburys but then Lidl use fake brands to make it seem like they are selling an actual branded product so that might be the difference. So maybe they are Noon. If they are Noon I don't think much of their product, I suspect they are not though as the Sainsbury's ones seem nicer but I still think the Iceland ones are the best value.

They definitely used to be Noon, but as I said that was some time ago. Agree that Sainsbury's curries are the best, their Chicken Madras is superb!

Ah, ta for that, obviously changed then. Certainly the packet pic above looks different, also they didn't do Chicken Madras before, but the OP has listed that one. Will have to give them a try!

So they supply curries to Lidl's and mexican processed meals to Iceland? If its also the same company that does the iceland frozen curries I might give the Lidl's meals another try. Although I do feel frozen is better in general for such meals.

Or have to keep costs down? Most people say they don't like this practice but who in all honesty will stop buying these now? And if if isn't worth it for 375g then don't buy. Lack of sales is their problem not yours.

Finally got round to checking this today - turns out I was right, it IS Noon - states Noon Products Ltd on the back left of the sleeve. Also the OP seems to have updated the deal post to state this. The frozen curries at Lidl are not Noon however.

Who produces the chilled ready meal curries seems to vary from store to store, some have Laila's and others have Noon.

Yeah, I was thinking that was probably the case. Since they are the ones in the fridge rather than the freezer it would make sense to have a range of suppliers to ensure they can be delivered fresh.
