Really enjoyed this! Followed the suggestions of a few others and reduced the quantity of noodles and prawns plus added mange tout and a teaspoon of fish sauce. Will leave some of the chilli seeds in next time for a little extra kick but very tasty. Will be making again.

I used 40g of noodles and half fat coconut milk. I also added a couple of scallops mange tout and baby corn

Enjoyed this with some adjustments. I cut coconut milk to 100 ml and upped the chicken stock to 300 ml, this worked well for me. I also cut the noodles to 50 gm. I had some water chestnuts so I tossed them in and they added a nice crunch. If I had ordered this dish in a restaurant I would have been pleased with my selection which is my standard.

Very happy with this. We thought it was a bit weak to start with we let it cook for longer and the flavour came out. Double the ingredients to make for two and use a pack of slim spaghetti which has no carbs, calories, gluten or fat, great for a low carb diet. My previous favourite was tom kha soup but I find it hard to get right, in fact the restaurants struggle to get it right but this recipe tastes good every time.

Fast, simple dish to prepare, full of flavour. I used 70g noodles which was more than enough. Great recipe.

I have just come back from Borneo and was eating a lot of laksa - often for breakfast! This was authentic tasting. My changes though were to use reduced fat coconut milk, an assortment of fish & shellfish and I cooked the noodles in the chicken stock then added it to the rest.

Very good. I used rice noodles to make it gluten free. Could use a bit more seasoning.

Loved this recipe. Having read the previous comments, I halved the amount of egg noodles which was a good idea because it was still a generous portion.
