    Very Good
    This was a good recipe, but I did modify with lemongrass, green onion and red pepper for a little extra flavor and to make it a touch more filling. Very good though. - 2/4/10

    This was really good tho I did modify a little bit. I throw a couple handfulls of shrimp in as well as half a stalk of lemongrass. In addition I put in some chilies, at the resturant I always order it extra spicey hot, as hot as they can make it. A serving of rice in the bottom of the bowl also. - 9/1/09

    This is great stuff, and so easy and quick! I like the chicken sliced very thin, and I tend to use cilantro rather than basil, but it's delicious as written. - 4/29/09
