    Delicious! I’ve made it for my granddad twice now, once with shrimp and once with chicken! It was great both times!

    It was delicious! I used tempura mix to get them to the same consistency as show in the picture. Definitely try this!

    Absolutely delicious, but my shrimp did not end up like the pictures. Mine were more pan fried than what looks like deep fried

    Pretty good. Recipe list doesn't include everything needed so read instructions and you'll find you need corn starch for this.

    Wonderfully I was a bit worried at first about the sauce I didn’t want it too salty so I laid back in the soy sauce a bit.

    This turned out really good. I had most of the ingredients on hand. I omitted the red pepper flakes. It was easy to make and yummy. My husband and 2.5 year old loved it.

    Quite good, though i did also fry some sliced green leeks and added extra hot peppers and then a dash of honey to make it stickier and topped it all with black and white sesame seeds.

    After reading the comments I cut the water to 1/2 cup and I cut the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. It was very tasty and fast. I read a comment that they wished the sauce was a bit thicker, this can be achieved by making a slurry of cornstarch (use sparingly) and a little cold water mix it up until it is smooth and thick enough to pour and add it to the sauce as it is cooking.

    I used chicken instead of shrimp and half the soy sauce. The sauce could have been a bit thicker (maybe a bit of corn starch?), but it was super tasty.

    Very good. I made the recipe as written, but I have to agree with one of the earlier reviewers, the sugar can be cut back on. Other than being too sweet for me, it was very easy to make and very tasty. I already have plans to make this again, using less sugar next time.

    Read Sharon's comment before making this dish and I'm glad I did. I also had the shrimp soaking in rice vinegar and water while i cleaned it; along with sprinkling salt on the shrimp before covering witg cornstarch. The dish was seasoned well and delicious. I paired the shrimp with white rice and green beans (fried in sesame oil, honey, garlic, salt and pepper)
