Very tasty, rich, creamy and delicious. Next time will use the noodles as per instructions instead of egg noodles that stuck to the bottom of pan and still managed to pull it off. Would definitely have this again.

Amazing, swapped out the chicken for aubergine and chicken stock for veg stock to make this vegan and it was sensational. Will definitely order again

I increased the cooking time for the veg as we like it soft.

Marie - 1st September 2020

Bit too spicy for me but the family liked it!

Gemma - 26th August 2020

Added half a chopped chilli and 2 tbsp of fish sauce to give it some depth. The sauce was a little watery until I added the uncooked rice noodles, then it thickened up nicely.
