This was okay. Normally we love anything with coconut milk, but for some reason this just seemed to be lacking depth. I couldn't figure out what it needed to make it great. - 24 May 2013

This was really good! I added a couple of tablespoons of desiccated coconut before the fish sauce and spring onion, but next time I'll toast it off before adding the coriander and coconut milk. Tasted great, will definitely be making this again. - 29 May 2011
