    Delicious! I didn't have any basil and doubled the sauce + added an extra egg (as the comments suggested!) and it turned out great. Using a whole chile made it spicier than I'm used to, so maybe halve it if you're more capsaicin sensitive ;)

    so good! the rice noodles i found we're not as wide and i ended up only using one 24oz pkg. i would need more sauce if i used the full 4 cups of noodles. i also didn't have sweet soy sauce so i split the difference with 1tbs light sodium soy and 1tbs molasses and slightly less than 1tbs of fish sauce. i also put 12 shrimp so we could split them well among our family. i can't do much spice so no peppers during cooking but cut them for my husband. the sriracha was enough spice for me and the kids. it made about three adult servings. definitely going to make this again!! ... Made it again a week later and doubled the amount of sauce and added more shrimp. this is easily one of my favorite recipes I've found!

    Turned out great! If you don’t have sweet soy sauce, I found mixing sugar and lite soy sauce to help a lot. Also be sure to have a very wide and tall pan, because it will get full in a hurry!

    tasted great. had to modify for dried rice noodles / rice sticks. also recommend using tongs.

    It’s delicious! Almost** I’d rate it 5 stars next time with one small adjustment. WAY less fish sauce. I doubled the sauce recipe and that meant adding 3 tablespoons of fish sauce (which I’ve never cooked with before so I didn’t know what I was in for). I just looked at other recipes and saw that it’s either not on the recipe or is noted as *to taste* or 1 tsp instead of this one calling for 1.5 tbsp. Otherwise! Delicious and I will use it again with that adjustment.

    So delicious! The family couldn't get enough of these noodles! Doubled the sauce which worked super well. A little salty so would use less fish sauce next time.

    made it with dried rice noodles and they ended up not being quite right. still delicious, will try again with fresh noodles. it took about 2 hours to make.

    Amazing flavor, and easy to follow recipe

    Very beginner friendly. More tomatoes and aromatics would be good the onions need to cook a bit more and if subbing out fish sauce for vegetarians be very mindful of using enough salt. Love this recipe, it turned out pretty well on the first try because Chef Jet explained well

    This came out great! I left out the shrimp as I served this with Korean bbq pork. I doubled the sauce and left out the Serrano and still found it slightly too spicy but still yummy.

    This was excellent! I added one additional egg, and the next time I will use more pepper or I may use habanero to make it a little spicier.

    Great! Definitely double sauce.

    Perfect recipe! I prepped the ingredients early in the morning and sat in the fridge until dinner time. Once it was time for dinner, it took 15 minutes, which is my kind of meal. I will likely use less peppers next time but the flavor was delicious. Make double the sauce for enough flavor.

    Sauce needs to be doubled if not tripled great flavor but very dry will make again!

    Watching the videos is a fun way to cook. Have everything ready as this goes pretty quickly with the high heat. It came out a little salty, maybe due to not having enough noodles (limited by amount store would sell). Left out a bit of the heat for the kids. Great dish though, may add more vegetables next time. Update: made it again -- had the correct amount of noodles this time around. Went easy on soy and it was much better. Not so salty as the first time.
