I halved this recipe, but otherwise followed it exactly. My only complaint is that there was not enough heat. I'll add dried thai chilis next time. The sauce is so incredibly delicious. Be sure you have some crusty Italian bread to sop it up with!!!

We made a big pot of these for a party we had on Monday (since it was a bank holiday here)Great idea - served them with some pickled ginger and hot chilli sauce. Nice and spicy!

Simply amazing. Such an elegant and flavorful first course for a Thai dinner party. The sauce is to die for, and the cilantro is a wonderful touch. I've always been afraid of making mussels but they steamed up perfectly with this recipe. We bought 3# for 4 people and it was way too much, though. Recommend half that.
