I love laksa but this wasn’t great. I adore all the other recipes tho.

Joanna - Jul 07, 2019

Tasty and easy to cook. Has a bit of a kick which is needed. Lime is essential to bring it to life.

Janet - Jul 07, 2019

We love it, fresh and coconut with spices twist. One of our top 5

Nick - Jul 06, 2019

Over powered by all the spices ... nice but not a fav

Carly - Jul 03, 2019

Really flavoursome and easy to make. I added a little more coconut and also some palm sugar as I like a little sweet note. Will definitely make again

Steven - Jul 03, 2019

Very very tasty, however I’m not sure asparagus goes with it. It’s a really nice Asian style soup which was more than sufficient for a main meal.
