"Lovely flavour. Didn't use water chestnuts as don't like them. Next time would add some extra vegies. All in all a wonderful dish. Really enjoyed this and gave it a 9/10. Thanks for the recipe."

"This entree is amazing! Very simple and once you purchase the sesame oil and hoisen sauce its basic kitchen pantry staples. It only takes about 20 minutes to throw together, especially when cooking the noodles via microwave. Very impressed. Very flavorful. I make it about every 2 weeks! Everyone loves it in our house. I'm going to try it with chicken next."
