"Kway Teow Pad Thai" meaning "fried rice noodles, Thai style" is a dish that was designed in the 1940s to be the Thai version of Chinese noodles. It's done with rice noodles instead of wheat noodles, as rice was in abundance in Thailand. The dish was then promoted by the Thai Government to build a sense of national identity among Thais, and has since become the world's favourite Thai street food dish.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the noodles

    For dried noodles, boil the noodles for 8 mins over a medium heat until tender, but still a little chewy. Then drain in a sieve and rinse under cold water. For fresh noodles, save them to add in at Step 3. 

  • 2.

    Fry the prawns

    Place a wok over medium-high heat and then add 1 tbsp of oil. Add the prawns and stir-fry for 1 min (or 2 mins if using raw prawns).

    Push the prawns to the side and crack the egg into the space. Let it set a little bit then break the yolk and stir fry the egg. Then mix with the prawns. 

  • 3.

    Add the Thai flavours

    Add the PAD THAI PASTE to the pan and fry for 1 min.

    Add the noodles (cooked ones from before or fresh noodles, if using) and the TAMARIND SAUCE, and stir well.

    Add most of the spring onions (keep a few for garnish later) and the bean sprouts and stir to mix. (Tongs really help here).

    Add the THAI TOMATO PASTE and stir fry for 2 more mins. 

  • 4.


    Serve the Pad Thai with crushed peanuts on top along with the rest of your spring onions. Squeeze a lime (if using) over everything.

Not nutty enough

Nadine - Dec 05, 2018

Nice flavour but a bit dry.

Pamela - Dec 04, 2018

While it was cooking it smelled delicious, unfortunately the taste wasn’t as good. All that was obvious taste wise was a nice bit of heat. What a shame.

Kathey - Dec 04, 2018


Carolyn - Dec 03, 2018

It was lovely and really tasty- only issue it was a bit dry but can’t complain ????

Katherine - Nov 30, 2018

Super fast and easy :o) Used a box of “mushroom stir fry” veg in place of the spring onion & bean sprouts to add a bit more veg content. Will make it again I’m sure :o)

Michelle - Nov 29, 2018

It's a stunning dish with beautiful flavours, it's great that you don't have to go shopping for all the spices etc... so easy having them measured ready for you to simply add to your dish.

Steve - Nov 11, 2018

Quite dry and not very tasty

Emily - Nov 11, 2018

Not quite enough sauce and could use a little more flavor

Lovely but just a little dry.

Lauren - Nov 08, 2018

Really yummy. Made it with chicken and prawn and tasted amazing!

April - Nov 07, 2018

Quick and easy tea time portion

Shian - Nov 06, 2018

I gave this to my son to cook.

Shian - Nov 06, 2018

Good, l just prefer my own version and Churchill’s in Notting Hill tops them both.

Tom - Nov 06, 2018

Tasted like a shop bought stir fry kit, disappointing compared to previous boxes.

Maggie - Nov 05, 2018

Very quick to make

Joyce - Nov 05, 2018

Amazing! Tasted like our Thai takeaway. Used chicken instead of prawns as husband doesn’t like them. Really good to add squeeze of lime & crushed peanuts, plus some coriander leaves to finish (strange these are in the pic, but not listed as an ingredient—they really make it)!

Kerrie - Nov 05, 2018

The pad Thai was nice and tasty but wouldn’t be in a rush to order again

Jo - Nov 03, 2018

Used chicken instead of prawns as forgot I didn't have any! Also added some extra veg which really lifted it. Lovely taste - use a lot of lime to really give it a zing and freshness. Yum!

Anna - Nov 03, 2018

Great flavours but I’ll probably pass on this in future. I think it’s down to my poor cooking though as I just can’t cook it correctly to obtain the right texture and crunch.

Julie - Nov 02, 2018

Lacking in taste, slightly. But still nice

Shian - Nov 02, 2018

Actually l gave this to my son to cook with his girlfriend, these are great as little cooking lessons, if they’re no longer at home in my kitchen. It’s his favourite.

Tina - Nov 02, 2018

I didn't have any peanuts so I sure stirred through peanut butter. Nice addition

Sarah - Nov 01, 2018


Claire - Oct 30, 2018

Was lovely I used chicken and prawns

Davey - Oct 29, 2018

So authentic. Would pay good money for this!

Sarah - Oct 29, 2018
