Not as quick as those classic Herb-ox cubes, but this stuff will give you authentic Japanese flavors for your cooking. This is the base note for proper tempura dipping sauce (also known as tentsuyu). Some people think the flavor is overly fishy but it tastes right to me, the tentsuyu I prepared with this tasted the same as restaurant dipping sauce. You may wish to strain the results after boiling, but the flavors are right on.
I am from Japan, so I know this is a real macoy. This is based on real dried fish, and that's how Japanese make "dashi". I would say this is a good product.
I wish you didn't need to use an entire packet every time. There aren't very many in the package and you go thru it quickly as a result. I recommend that when you use it, just cook up a large pot and refrigerate what you don't use so it lasts longer.
