    It turned out great but I just a little of the hot sauce because it is hard on me. I did not put the peanuts on it.

    I think it’s a little dry perhaps more liquid could be added

    Great. Instead of peanuts, I added little peanut butter. Also added pea pods and shredded carrots. Awesome.

    I was surprised by how well it turned out, considering how easy it was to prepare! I added egg and yellow pepper, and cooked the shrimp in their shells. Will definitely make it again!

    Really yummy pad Thai recipe. Personally I thought the sauce was a little heavy on the fish sauce but to each his own

    Hubby loved it! I didn’t have green onions and that would have spiced it up a little. Delicious, quick and easy!

    This recipe was easy to make and turned out really well. The entire family enjoyed. Added a little extra sriracha and lime to taste, but excellent as written,

    I had just gone out for Thai with friends and ordered satay and spring rolls. As I watched my friend's pad Thai come to the table I knew I made a mistake. THAT DISH WAS ON MY MIND THE WHOLE NEXT DAY. I found this recipe and had everything I needed at home. It absolutely hit the spot! I added one more tsp of all the parts of the sauce just to make sure the noodles were covered. I also added lime juice liberally and subbed chicken. Maybe not restaurant quality, but that's only based on my skills. This recipe is awesome.

    Easy, fun dish to make at home. Make certain to top it with the chopped nuts. You can easily make it with beef or chicken.

    this recipe was very simple and easy to make. I used chicken instead of shrimp, and regular soy sauce instead of low sodium. The taste was good, but I would recommend adding red pepper flakes, and truly using the low sodium soy sauce. Also, squirt some lime on top of the final product!
