This was my first attempt at Pad Thai. I really liked the flavor of this recipe. I did use only shrimp and no chicken because that is what we had on hand. Also, I think I used the wrong type of noodles. Mine were really thin compared to what I normally get at a restaurant if I order Pad Thai. Also, I doubled the sauce but I also added too many noodles so I think I probably ended up with the amount of sauce the recipe would produce without doubling and I wished it had more. Served with Easy Egg Roll and Chow Gai Laan (Jade Green Broccoli). Thank you!

Fantastic!! I doubled the sauce as everyone had suggested and added 1tbsp of peanut butter to it. That made the perfect amount. I eliminated the shrimp and chicken and used well drained med firm tofu cut into 1/4" sticks. I added them at the same time as the garlic, along with a hand full of snow peas and bamboo shoots. This is my new favourite recipe!!

Fab! Made as directed but did not have roasted peanuts, which would be great. My daughter didn't care much for the texture of the rice noodles.

I made this on a Lenten Friday, so I made it without chicken. I doubled the sauce ingredients and thought it could be a little saucier, so next time I'll either triple the sauce ing or use less noodles. Having said that, this was REALLY good!! The only Pad Thai recipe I've ever made that comes close to restaurant quality. Thank you so much for posting!!!

We loved this dish! I did add more noodles, I used a 14 ounce box and did double the sauce as suggested. It was wonderful! I followed the directions as written (other than the noodles) would not change a thing.

This is a fantastic recipe considering you can find everything in your local grocery store no matter where you live. When I can get my hands on tamarind sauce (we live in a rural area where it is not available) we add a few tbs of it and cut back on the ketchup and omit the worcst. Also we add a tbs or two of peanut butter. We double the sauce as others suggested. This is a regular in my house now and I would recommend it to anyone who is craving phad thai. I have had better in restaurants but I have also had many that did not stack up to the flavours in this. Thanks so much!

Yummmm, made it with shrimps only (no chicken) and doubled the sauce. I omitted the chilli flakes and used chilli paste instead of Sambal Oelek. Will definitely make again and again and again. Thanks for posting.

Firts time I've tried a Pad Thai recipe. It was a request by my son who gets a Pad Thai from one of those mall outlets. He enjoyed the flavour but I reduced the sambal oelek for MIL. He added extra at the table. He also thought there should be more sauce, even though I doubled it. As first timers we thought it was quite good. Thanks for the post.
