I was delighted that the recipes in this book really taste like the stuff I get in Thai restaurants. Very satisfying! I took liberties with the ingredients that were hard to find, and was still very pleased with the outcome. The red curry is delicious and the chicken and cashew (I used tofu and cashew) turned out great. I recommend this book to any adventurous cook.

The recipes in this book are more complicated than the title implies but they are worth the effort! Most of the ingredients mentioned could be found at local specialty grocery stores. The descriptions for each recipe were wonderful and the author is clearly passionate about Thai cooking and culture. The green curry paste was amazing and very authentic. The pad thai was also fantastic and just like something you would get a good Thai restaurant. Highly recommend this book if you enjoy Thai food!
