I thought this was a great recipe to make at home for those who aren't very experienced in Thai cuisine (like me). While it's not a restaurant quality final result, it was fabulous as a way to get my kids to try something different. We all enjoyed it though I did tweak it a little by reducing the garlic and the chilli to make it a little milder. I would highly recommend this to those who are new to Asian cooking as it was a fairly straight forward recipe which gives a great result.

The recipe was very disappointing. It lacked the true Thai punch...sweet, sour, salty, and piquant. It wasn't a total flop, we were able to eat it. I would suggest that you "save the chew' and try something else.

Superb. I added a little more vinegar and soy to get extra sauce but only a 1/2 tbs each. The flavor was fantastic, only mint i had was spearmint but it worked nicely in it.

Very nice. Both dh & myself liked it. I would like a touch more sauce, maybe next time I will double the sauce. I did not add the mint leaves. Not only since I didn't have them, I just couldn't imagine we would like them. I also used button mushroom because that's all I had, but I had to pick them out of dh serving anyway, as he has some kind of mushroom phobia. I purchased some Thai peppers at the local farmers market, and this is one of my first experiences with them. I like them! Thank you very much, I am sure we will make this again.

My only change was to use dried shiitake mushrooms rehydrated, and to substitute some lemongrass for mint. This made a light sauce that was delicious and tasty. My only complaint is that the fish sauce came on a wee bit too strong for me, and I tend to like the stuff. Next time I'll use 1T. Also, not much sauce for the accompanying steamed jasmine rice.

Loved it! I didn't have any mushrooms so I added some green beans I had instead. Very easy and very tasty :) Thank you!

I love you !! The dish was wonderful . I followed your recipe almost exactly and turned out a 5-star-dish! I used 1 tablespoon of dried mint because I didn't have fresh one. It was just perfect.. Thank you!

I'm glad I grow spearmint in the backyard.. this was very good and I have made this twice already. I didn't have shiitake mushrooms so I just had to use regular ones and I also didn't have any green onions so I used a shallot that I had leftover. Still came out fine. Thanks!
