"Excellent! We thought it was really good. I served it with stir fried vegtables. Will triple it and make it for company next time and maybe add some edamame and serve it with potstickers and pad thai."

"I made this last night and we both LOVED it. Only change I made was added more Rajah (hot) curry powder since we like curry. (I heaped tsp. then added approx. 1/4 tsp. after that total). I used fresh ginger - grated.. all the flavors came together so nicely. Cilantro and cashews topped it off.. we will definately have this again and will be using for company!"

"I've spent a lot of time in Thailand. This does not remotely taste like Thai. Poor flavor. We basically hated it."
