Very nice - I marinated the tofu in the curry/soy/chilli mix for half an hour before frying which tasted fantastic.

Light and tasty and really easy to make. I used wheat noodles instead of rice noodles. Tasted better than most noodle dishes I have got in a restaurant.

I made this last night, and it was absolutely divine, and I am not a vegetarian! I had marinted the tofu in Teriyaki Sauce all day long, and then I sauted the tofu first in a few sprays of 'mild and light olive oil spray' (am trying to watch the calories), and I had to keep turning all the pieces of tofu until they were crispy and golden brown on all sides...then I took them out and rested them on kitchen towel while I cooked the rest of the stir fry. I also used the straight to wok noodle variety, for quickness. The sauce was gorgeous - like a cross between a curry and a chinese - it was hot and spicy, but sweet and salty too, and the lime added the sourness, It was quick, and easy to make. An absolute winner!

This was quick, easy and tasty although I did substitute the tofu for paneer as no-one in our family likes tofu.

My partner (a vegetarian) and I ( a meat eater who normally doesn't like tofu) really enjoyed this. Very easy and very tasty, with a great contrast in terms of the soft noodles and crunchy veg. Apparently it was so good my partner would happily pay money for it in a restaurant!

This was great. My husband loved it as well. I might need to invest in some better sweet chilli because it needed a bit more of a kick for us. Was very easy and tasty.

This is fabulous - easy, quick and delicious. It was really tasty and the crunch of the veg is fab with the soft noodles and tofu. The tofu was surprisingly tasty despite not being marinaded in anything.
