Great if you know how to use it!
We have ordered this item multiple times now and it has been consistently excellent. Yes it doesn't taste amazing on it's own but that's what seasoning is for! Simply add pinch of salt, and sugar and this will improve it massively. We use this, along with mushrooms, red bell peppers, spring onions and chickpeas (if were feeling extra hungry) and serve with steamed white rice. Adding a touch of lime juice helps improve the flavour profile further!
Tasteless. Utterly junk. Why dont reviews show on the app??? I’d never have tried this if they had
Not a paste - mostly water. Insipid. Awful.
More of a thin sauce that didn't taste of anything. It was so runny that you can't fry with it, so everything else just boils in it - vegetables and tofu ruined. Looking at the ingredients list you can see it is at least 88% water. Rubbish.
This is So so weak even when doubled the amount
Weak paste too watery, needs to be stronger flavou
Weak paste too watery, needs to be stronger flavours, too much pepper
Don’t waste your money
Absolutely awful, don’t buy! Tastes nothing like red Thai, just watery red pepper, what a con!
This is a disgrace. Just sweet tasteless rubbish. Do not buy.
Never ever again.
My first mistake was ignoring the reviews. My second was using this awful paste to make a veg curry with the delicious squash that my neighbour grew and then kindly gave me. I wondered whether I had accidentally used a soapy pan? Or bowl? I rinsed the veg in desperation to salvage something. Just as bad. Inedible. Soapy, with a weird unidentifiable unpleasant undertone. Never ever again.
Not Thai, not pleasant
I agree completely with all the one and two star reviews. Smells and looks like tomato pasta sauce with faint touches of lemongrass. No Thai flavour at all, not aromatic, no heat. We ate the curry because we had made it, but it wasn't a Thai curry and the rest of the jar is in the bin. How can Tesco be ignoring all the reviews like this in the last year??
This tasted so weird I actually thought my vegetarian protein 'pieces' had gone off in the freezer. It has a vile soapy taste. I forced down half my curry then binned it. To be honest I can't even put it into words, it tastes like the smell of a well known toilet cleaning product that quacks . .
