I am a big fan of laksa so I had high expectations on this recipe, but I was a bit disappointed. Result is okay but nothing exciting. I don't think I will repeat.

Gill - May 14, 2019

Gave this to a friend as I didn't fancy it.

Suzanne - May 13, 2019

Stunning flavours, easy recipe with big results!

Jennifer - May 13, 2019

It was ok but not my favourite. I’m not an asparagus fan so should have replaced that with something else.

Alison - May 13, 2019

Using light coconut milk made it very runny but taste was good.

Sarah - May 13, 2019

Bit too mushy for my liking - don’t know if I cooked it incorrectly

Sam - May 11, 2019

Boring and no flavour!

Hannah - May 10, 2019

Tasty but with dried noodles there was no difference in the recipe so it ended up with very little sauce

I miss out the butternut squash as felt it would be a bit heavy. And wow it was gorgeous! Very simple, quick to make and very yummy! Will order again

Claire - May 07, 2019

Very tasty. Easy to make.

Lovely dish, I put in double the quantity of butternut squash and it was a lovely big helping. Quite high on the calories though.
