  1. THank you ! Enjoy it. I jsut got ticket to go to Thailand yesterday. 31 October to 21 Novemver 2011. If you are there maybe we could get together!

  2. Sawdeeee khap--How many servings, individual pad thais, will the ingredients listed above make? I'm using this recipe tonight for five adults.


  3. Hi Antoies, this recipe is good for 2 servings. You can douples recipe for your guests. Good luck!

  4. Khop khun na!


  5. Very welcome Ka... I just make this recipe again, I wonder how do you like this ,

  6. Hello, so the Pad Thai was good, but I had some trouble with the egg wrapping. It was too thick , more like khai jiaow omelette then like a wrapper. Also, whenever I flipped it over onto the plate, the egg wrapper riped up and broke. Haha, everyone still found the dish tasty though. Any tips for this problem?

  7. I try to make a thin omelette and try not put too much of Phad Thai in the wrapper, just good amount of Phad Thai in one serving. I like to put shrimp on the bottem of the wrape then you can see the shrimp on the top of dish. I should mention one wrap is good for one serving. My last tip is Please go up to see the step. 23 to 24. I just use my serving plate face down to the pan of Phad Thai Hor Khai then turn it over, you will have a perfect Phad Thai Hor Khai in the dish, then cut open the top. I hope it helps. I am glad everyone like your Phad Thai.
