This one works out cheaper not sure about availability. Nevertheless good price. Has anyone tried this rice compared to Tilda?

This is a deceptive price mate. Basmati rice, apart from Tilda, are always sold for an average of £1 /kg. These are the supermarkets tricks to attract the random customers who buy things just looking at reduced price labels without knowing the average price of that product.

Agree, but £1.05 for the larger size is tolerable.

£1/kg used to be the going rate for decent non premium brands (Tilda/White Pearl/Zebra).....you could get inferior brands more cheaply.
BUT that hasn't been the case for many months now. Inferior brands or the longgrain substitutes packed under a basmati brand name are still occasionally available for around £1/kg but Laila generally isn't.

Of the various brands we've tried Laila hits th he sweet spot in terms of price and quality. If I had money to burn I would only buy one of the premium products I mentioned in my first sentence but they don't warrant the price when we find Laila gives us as good results at a significantly cheaper price. Having tried some other cheap supermarket brands we now avoid them. My wife is Singaporean so there is a lot of rice consumed in this house

Tilda is the best. Follow by Kohinoor Platinum, but you don't get Kohinoor Platinum range at most places now a days.

I prefer Kohinoor and Tilda, I find them way better than this Laila rice which seems to have an odd smell

Totally agree plus laila rice seems to have a very small time window when cooking between being bitty, cooked and mushy

If your rice is ending up mushy have you tried using Sella basmati rice? Sella is supposedly better for biryani cooking than ordinary basmati. We keep both in our kitchen (though as a pulau fan over biryani I dont really see the need for Sella as much as the mrs)
