Excellent. One of my favourites. Tons of flavor. Great for lunch. Have made may times.

Fantastic. I don't like hoisin or salad, but i really enjoyed it for lunch at work. Omitted coriander as had none, used hoisin stir fry sauce (amoy), otherwise stuck to recipe. Will definitely make again.

Why do lots of recipes show a 5 star rating then when you drill down into the recipe, there is no comment or rating! Very annoying!!
