Recipes: How to Make Prawn Phad Thai

18th Jun 2020

Phad Thai is a traditional street food dish in Thailand with stir-fried rice noodles, egg, vegetables, cashews and flavoured with tamarind.

The dish was made popular in Thailand during world war 2 as a way for the government to reduce domestic rice consumption. Phad Thai has since become one of Thailand's national dishes and is a firm favourite at the Zen Garden Restaurant.

Learn how to make this popular Thai dish served at The Zen Garden Restaurant:



  • 100g Shelled Raw King Prawns
  • 100g Dried Flat Noodles
  • 50g Bean Sprouts
  • 20g chopped Spring Onion
  • 10g finely sliced Leeks
  • 10g finely sliced Carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons Tamarind
  • 2 Tablespoons Palm Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
  • 2 whisked Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Cooking Oil
  • 2 Table spoons Crushed Cashew nuts



  1. Soak the noodles in hot water until soft.
  2. Add the oil to a wok and heat.
