    DELICIOUS! I am a huge Thai food fan because of the complex flavors Thai dishes have. This was my first try at making Thai and I must say I was really impressed! It tasted robust and flavorful, was super easy to make. The ingredients were sort of difficult to find at a smaller supermarket, but I went to Cost Plus World Market and found the chile oil, oyster sauce, etc. Worth the hunt! I love that its all made in one pan - less clean up! I served over sticky rice. The only comment is that it came out very spicy when made as directed. I personally love spiciness, so does my boyfriend, but his mom couldn't eat it due to the heat. You can omit the hot peppers or use olive oil instead of chile oil to take it down a notch. I'll make again!  -  05 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
