I tried unsuccessfully to make Thai food for years. I finally got this sauce at a friends recommendation and my food tastes so much more authentic. Still not an expert at Thai food, but this definitely made a difference

Delicious full flavored coconut milk. I use this product consistently for full flavored Thai food. Reasonably priced at about 1.75 a can in most retailers. Highly recommend.

We use this paste to make green curry all the time! It's great with chicken, zucchini, onions, garlic, ginger and coconut milk over brown rice. Some chili garlic sauce and fish sauce as toppings. mmmm

The best sweet chili sauce, it has a nice consistency. It's not too spicy, It's perfect for lumpia dipping sauce.

This thing tastes so good! It has a natural caramel flavor and is much healthier when you compare it to cane sugar. It's very versatile also and I've found that I use less of this when compared to using cane sugar

My family loves almost all of the Thai Kitchen products. This, though? Seriously! I stock this in bulk in my pantry. My five-year-old thinks these noodles are the best thing in the world. It's the only thing she will eat when she's going through a picky stage. And it's perfect for us. I can make any dinner and include these noodles as a side, kid them plain and I eat them mixed with some delicious sauce, usually by Thai Kitchen. The ginger sauce is bomb, y'all. These noodles are really easy to mix when adding sauces or veggies, etc.. Easy to cook with when making stir fry. They don't get "gummy" like some. I nearly took off a star for being more fattening than the real deal procured from our local Thai grocery. But then realized that these noodles may not be as good if they're less calorie heavy. But it should be noted. Now, I'm off to get fat from a load of these bad boys. Get you some
