Absolutely fantastic. Very versatile as well. Shame to see any bad reviews on this. Yes its hot, but thats what Thailand is about. Mix it up with coconut milk, the higher density of coconut the better. And it cools the paste too with a touch of sugar. I use coconut milk at 80%. Perfect creaminess. Plus lime and all the classics for Thai food. Or go for tom yum style and thin the paste with stock. Mix with just veg and or meat. Will definitely be stocking my shelves with this time and time again. Awsome .
Acrid, harsh, unpleasant .
acrid, harsh, unpleasant . much the worse thai paste i have ever used
Delicious but needs to be tweaked
With a bit of tweaking to the paste I managed to get it tasting like the curries I've had from the Thai restaurants here in the UK. The paste is very salty but I added brown palm sugar to balance the saltiness and added grated fresh ginger and garlic to it. I fried the fresh ginger and garlic first until the aroma is released then added this curry paste and continued to fry with a bit of coconut oil. Once the aroma from this paste has also released I added the rest of the coconut milk and vegetables then let it simmer until the coconut milk has slightly thickened as I don't like a watery curry. The veg curry I made using this paste with a few tweaks was delicious.
Very tasty, it reminded me of the authentic thai food we ate in Thailand. I pan fried with garlic and ginger, then added chicken, browned and added coconut milk. Delicious
This is fab, nice and hot and spicy the best paste I have tried yet!
Disappointing to say the least
Disappointed to say the least! This curry paste is SO spicy and has a nasty salty taste. Do not buy this!
Awful! So Salty!!
Absolutely awful! If I could give 0 stars I would! Do not buy it. It is so salty. I read the other reviews who also said its salty but I thought maybe they had a bad batch so I gave it a go. But no it really is salty. When looking at the label it has nearly a whole tablespoon of salt per 100g! Unbelievable considering manufacturers should be reducing salt content in their foods. Using this paste totally ruined our family meal which meant we had a whole pack of chicken breast wasted, 2 peppers and a can of coconut milk. You have been warned!
Horrible all we could taste was pure salt! Had to bin our dinner's Avoid

Okay. We thought this would make a change from the Patak's pastes we've been buying. Unfortunately we found the cury we made with it was far too salty--we could hardly taste the other ingredients which had smelled so inviting while it was cooking. It was a really disappointing dish. Perhaps the cooking insrtructions could be a little clearer as to how much paste to add to make a dinner for four people?
