Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I didn't like the pea pods, it gave the dish a bitter taste. I didn't like the pea pods, it gave the dish a bitter taste. It was a little too dry so I added extra sauce, but it just wasn't as good as the real thing. I missed the spicy flavor that real pad thai has, so I tried to add some red pepper and then hot sauce. It wasn't the same. All in all, I think this could be ok maybe if you played with the ingredients a bit, but this is one of those things where you should just stick with the original! If you're expecting pad thai when you make this, you'll be disappointed. If you're not comparing it to the real thing, it is ok but a little bland.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I agree with others, does not compare to "real" pad thai. I agree with others, does not compare to "real" pad thai. That being said, this is a quick and tasty dish that is easy to adjust to ingredients on hand and is also kid-friendly. I used frozen peas instead of snow peas, added cooked cubed chicken breast and a little garlic, increased the amount of sauce and added one packet of splenda to counter the salt. I also used unsalted peanuts. I think red pepper flakes would be a natural addition to spice it up a bit. Will definitely make this easy dish again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I modified this quite a bit as I went along, and really liked the way it turned out. I modified this quite a bit as I went along, and really liked the way it turned out. I used chicken, broccoli and carrots as well as snow peas and grn onion, and for the sauce used a combination of hoisin, soy, and cayenne pepper sauce (instead of the teriyaki). It was still easy, and great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is easy and GREAT! This recipe is easy and GREAT! I used linguine because they are flat and wide like Thai noodles. I also added more teriyaki then called for and when pea pods were almost done frying, I added bean sprouts to fry for about 30 seconds. Yum!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you really like Pad Thai, then this is not the recipe for you. If you really like Pad Thai, then this is not the recipe for you. It would be better served to be named Oriental Noodles or something along those lines. It was bland, and definitely missing the sweetness of Pad Thai.
