    Pretty authentic thai dish. Next time I will omit the ketchup and put in chilli paste. We like hot thai foods so I added fresh little chillies to spice it up a little, otherwise it would have been too bland. V. easy. I also substituted the shrimp for chicken to be a little more filling!  -  10 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The noodles tasted great but turned out a bit dry. So when I made it for the second time, I added an extra tbsp of Ketchup and fish sauce and also a bit more sugar. I love spicy food and so added some chopped fresh chillies as a personal preference.  -  12 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't think that this would taste as good as it did! I used Sriracha instead of ketchup and doubled the sauce, SO YUMMY! I devoured the whole thing and my apartment smelt so yummy after!  -  27 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
