The flavor of this was very similar to the Tom Yum soup I get at the local Thai restaurant. I did omit the cumin (because I just don't care for it personally) and added curry powder in its place. I made a few other minor changes that don't really affect the recipe much, so overall, a really great recipe that I will make again!
