Bland and tasteless.
Disgustingly bland. Spent money on quality ingredients to make a special dish, monkfish, king prawns etc. What a waste. Completely lacking in any thai flavours....
Absolutely tasteless. Added no flavour at all to the Thai curry we made.
Bland. Used with can of coconut oil in pressure cooker. No taste. Had to add lots more spices when finished which subsequently didn’t taste anything like Thai red curry.
Not too spicy
If you're one of those people who want your curries to blow your head off, then this isn't for you. It's very mild. I've used it with chicken and fish, each time adding fish sauce and a little sugar to enhance the flavour. It's been a winner with the family, including our 5-year old daughter who won't go near anything too spicy. For everyday meals it is excellent value.
Avoid at all costs!
Disgusting, smells like bathroom cleaner and doesn't taste much better. Spend a bit more money and get a branded sauce or make your own!
Terrible nothing like Red Thai curry paste paste. It’s as scandal that it’s sold as ‘Thai’ if you want to make red Thai curry avoid at all costs. Bland and tasteless. Rest of the jar is going in the bin.
it's just bland
it's just bland
After adding the coconut milk the sauce was really tasteless. Think I'll stick to other brands.
First time I've tried this Tesco paste. Really not
First time I've tried this Tesco paste. Really not keen, unlikely to buy again. Made my usual butternut squash soup but had to use the whole jar to get good level of flavour. Also, whilst it does have 'some' heat - the flavour was almost soapy? Not an authentic Thai curry paste to me.
Not a paste, ruined a meal!
First off, the is a sauce not a paste. Secondly It doesn’t taste like Thai red curry at all. A Strong taste of lemongrass is the only ‘Thai’ flavour I could recognise. Bizarre that this is labelled as Thai paste, I actually had to check I hadn’t picked up a pasta sauce. I have promised to remake a Thai curry for my husband soon (to right a wrong!) and I will absolutely not be using this. Rest of the jar went in the bin.
