    Simply wonderful! What an awesome flavor! I think the mayo mixture makes it! If you can have the mayo then don't leave out the sauce!  -  06 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    SPICY! A NICE CHANGE FROM THE TYPICAL BURGER. I MADE IT W/GROUND TURKEY AND IT WAS GREAT!  -  11 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe was fantastic and I highly recommend it. The coconut (barring allergy of course) is a must to cool the heat of the hot sauce and curry paste and the blend of flavors was perfect. What an adventure to find these ingredients, though! I added new stores to my shopping arsenal, and think that this is the perfect recipe to introduce Thai into a kitchen.  -  25 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
