Wish I'd read these reviews beforehand. Have used this product in the past & been happy, but this current version is awful - bland, lacking in any flavour or heat - ruined Friday night curry night!! Won't be buying again!!
What have they done.....this is rubbish now.
What have they done? This used to be quite a good family friendly paste. Now it's just bland rubbish - not just no heat, but no flavour either. Will NOT be buying again. Why change it... beats me.
Surprised that the label advised to use the entire jar with one can of coconut milk (which we did) as thought it might make the dish over seasoned. Although it smelt quite fragrant whilst cooking, it made the blandest Thai green curry we've ever eaten. If the chefs who signed this off think this is the best they can do, it's time for a career change. Avoid.
No heat or flavour
I have bought this curry paste for years however the last two jars have had no heat or flavour. Has the recipe been changed? It still says hot, with a picture of 3 chillies on the front to signify this and the ingredients says 8% green chillies. There is less heat in it than a mild Korma. Very disappointed! I will not be buying this anymore.
We bought this yesterday at our local Tesco. My partner went to use it this evening to make a Thai green chicken curry, opened the jar, and said to me "Does this taste odd to you ?". I had a sniff and a taste and said that it tasted like no Thai green curry sauce I'd ever tasted. My partner went on to make a different dish using a different sauce she found in the cupboard. I Googled 'Tesco Thai Green Curry Paste' to find that the reviews are almost all very negative. Why do Tesco continue to sell a product that nobody wants to buy ? We will be returning our jar of sauce for a refund.
Flavourless and watery.
Very watery. I had to add so many extra ingredients that I may as well not bothered using it in the first place. Waste of money I'm afraid.
More like guacamole than Thai curry
This is dreadful. Used the prescribed amount of paste and the Thai Green curry tasted nothing like! It was so bland yet has 3 chillis indicating it is fairly 'warm'. In fact, checking the bottle afterwards it smelled more like guacamole than Thai green chilli. Be warned, this is terribly bland stuff. Going to stick to Blue Dragon in future as it's more authentic.
Don’t waste your money
Really disappointing, tasteless gloopy and not worth buying. Your better off spending a little more for a much better quality and taste than the Tesco brand.
Why has the original changed? It was the best thai paste anywere by miles. This is awful. Had to throw the whole thing away. Looked indedible and on tasting, it certainly was. Absolutely horrible. Wasted a load of chicken because we couldn't eat it. Make it the old way. Not this horrible sloppy split, watery mess
I'm sure the product has been changed, and not for the better! The taste isn't as strong as it used to be, and my curry is an unattractive milky colour, not the GREEN you'd expect from a Thai Green Curry.
