Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    For the dried noodles, bring a large pan of water to the boil, turn off the heat and put the noodles in the water. Let them steep for 10-12 mins until tender, but still a little chewy. Then rinse under cold water until the water runs clear and keep in a pan of cold water until needed.

  • 2.

    Place a wok or large frying pan over a medium-high heat and add a small splash of oil. Add the prawns and the Pad Thai Seasoning and stir-fry for 1-2 mins until they begin to colour but are still juicy. Then remove them from the pan.

  • 3.

    Add the spring onions to the pan and stir-fry for 1 min until the onions wilt. Add the Red Pepper & Chilli and the Pad Thai Paste, and 1 tbsp of water and mix well. Add the noodles and the beansprouts and mix well so everything is coated. Sprinkle in the sugar.

  • 4.

    Return the prawns to the pan, then push everything to the side and crack the egg and stir to scramble it. Stir the egg through the noodles and add the crushed peanuts, if you’ve got some, and mix until it’s all well combined.

  • 5.

    Divide the Pad Thai between 2 serving bowls and garnish with more peanuts and a squeeze of lime, if using.

Lindsay - Feb 23, 2020

worst one yet. I love pad Thai but this was really disappointing. Just tasteless. wouldn't recommend unfortunately.

Amy - Feb 22, 2020

Really awful, a terrible taste and texture. Completely inedible.

Margaret - Feb 08, 2020

Was really looking forward to trying this recipe but was very disappointed. Not enough taste.

Philip - Jan 16, 2020

Meh. OK but no better than a simple supermarket kit. Would not order this again.

Eleanor - Oct 07, 2017

Didn't receive this choice as sold out

Sophie - Aug 21, 2017

Too spicy, didn't taste nice!

Joanna - Jul 13, 2017

Belinda - May 22, 2017

V v good

Alexandra - May 09, 2017

Jennifer - Apr 20, 2017

LOVED this!

Mercedes - Apr 16, 2017

Really good

Anna - Apr 02, 2017

Very strange dish. Nothing like pad Thai. Inedible. Strange lemon flavour.

Lisa - Mar 19, 2017

Not the flavour I am looking for in a pad thai, will not be ordering again.

Marina - Feb 09, 2017

Not a big fan at all! It had a really overpowering lemon/lime/citrus taste and just generally tasted like no pad thai I have every had before. The texture was right but I can get a good pad thai from the local take away for a fiver so won't be ordering this one again!

Helen - Jan 29, 2017

I'm usually a fan of pad Thai so was looking forward to this, but it tasted like no pad Thai I've had before and I wasn't a fan. Sadly not for me.

louise - Jan 22, 2017

Very strange overpowering flavour. Not like any pad thai I've tried. Went in the bin I'm afraid :(

Ali - Nov 23, 2016

Have you changed the recipe recently? It certainly didn't feel familiar cooking it this time round. We both love Pad Thai and, while far from unpleasant this seemed to lack the hallmarks of a good Pad Thai.. Felt like it lacked the fish sauce and tamarind... Shame, as this was a go to dish!

Paula - Nov 17, 2016

I didn't have any prawns so i changed it to chicken and loved it, I forgot to add the egg but added the peanuts. I made a dish for my evening meal and a tub for my lunch the next day.

darlene - Nov 13, 2016

A super quick dish to make when don't have much time but want something tasty. I don't add the egg or peanuts and add different veg depending on what I have in the fridge

James - Oct 28, 2016

I made mistakes with this but I was still not impressed. I will not try it again

Kate - Oct 23, 2016

Good but not as tasty as others I've tried. However, I needed to use up some Edamame pasta, which I did with this recipe and I think that altered the flavour more than I thought it would so I would give this another go, with noodles next time.

cynthia - Oct 15, 2016

Not a fan of this one

Leah - Sep 21, 2016

Love, love, love this dish. So quick and easy to prepare and surprisingly low in calories but still full of flavour. This has become a regular for me, I'm on my third order of it!

Charles - Aug 20, 2016

Good recipe, enjoyed the taste. Missed out on the Lime so will make sure next time

Lina - Aug 14, 2016

Not really the taste I expected from a pad thai... would not order this one again.

Helen - Aug 03, 2016

Pad thai recipe was great and authentic tasting - make sure you have lime and coriander and forget the sugar which is mentioned in the recipe but not the ingredients list.

Andrew - Jun 27, 2016

Pad thai is one of my favourites eating out, but I doubted this would be replicated at home. I was pleasantly surprised. Added chicken to the prawns, and made sure we had loads of extra limes....YUM!

Ben - Jun 16, 2016

My partner and I were left feeling underwhelmed with this dish. A bit lacking in flavour and each mouthful was quite 'samey'. It also didn't really taste like any Pad Thai from any of our favourite Thai restaurants. I was also left feeling slightly frustrated as the instructions made a reference to 'sprinkle in the sugar' yet there was no mention of any sugar in the ingredients list. How much sugar? What type of Sugar? Sugar I say!

Abby - Apr 19, 2016

We really enjoyed this recipe, really filling but light. The lime was definitely needed to cut through the flavours.

jo - Apr 19, 2016

We really enjoyed this. Very quick and fresh!

Helen - Apr 05, 2016

Really delicious, took almost no time at all to make, definitely one of our favourite kits so far.

Viv - Mar 30, 2016

Really enjoyed this and found it to best I've ever cooked at home. Definitely needs the lime to cut through it and I also added fresh coriander at the end as per the picture. Will definitely order again.

Dan - Mar 29, 2016

I put off making this as I was thinking that 350 calories wouldn't be very filling. That wasn't the case, and it tasted great and was really quick to prepare.

Alison - Mar 26, 2016

It was ok - a nice evening meal - but it wasn't as special as some of the other meals.

Francois-Xavier - Mar 12, 2016

Tasted ok but not very authentic compared to my local thai takeway. Spice mix is nice but pastes are a bit bland. I added quite a lot of lime to give more flavour to the dish.

Laura - Mar 01, 2016

Perfect pad thai. Might add some chicken next time as well as prawns

Bethany - Feb 29, 2016

The lime definitely brings this dish together!

Emma - Feb 27, 2016

Really delicious. Have ordered it again.

Sarah - Feb 25, 2016

Nice flavours and easy to cook.

Zoe - Feb 21, 2016

It stank when I cooked it and tasted horrible first time ever having pad thai in my life and never will again, Definitely not for me.

Jessica - Jan 12, 2016

Maybe it's because I was really looking forward to it because I love Phad Thai but it was a let down. Not as flavoursome as I was hoping.

Claire - Dec 31, 2015

did not enjoy

Eleanor - Nov 23, 2015

Really delicious and tasted very authentic - not very different to a pad thai I've had in a restaurant. Only issue was the egg didn't scramble and mix through very well but think that was down to my technique rather than the recipe!

Michelle - Nov 06, 2015


Neil - Nov 03, 2015

Love this recipe, one of my favourites!

Meleri - Nov 03, 2015

Good flavours.used more prawns due to pack size

Helen - Oct 19, 2015

Good flavours, great taste.

Geoff - Sep 30, 2015

Used more prawns that the recipe suggested purely down to how many were in the pack. A good recipe with enough flavours to cover the additional prawns. Have had worse in a Thai restaurant so good work here

Louise - Sep 15, 2015

Not my favourite unfortunately, flavours were decent however a little mushy when egg added (make sure to scramble properly before mixing through)
