My husband and I love Asian cuisine, so I was excited to try this dish. It was pretty disappointing that it tasted like noodles smeared with peanut butter. I thought that the peanut sauce would end up tasting better, with all the other ingredients in it, but you couldn't even taste them. We took two bites, and couldn't even finish it.
