Rated 4 out of 5 by HikerLipps Thai deliciousness at 9000 feet!
I was somewhat skeptical about this but decided to try it and I was not disappointed. It cooked according to the directions and tasted fabulous. A little pricey but worth it for the wait and the taste.

Rated 2 out of 5 by buzz didn't quite cut it
almost, but not quite as tasty as the real thing. Was a poor substitute for pad thai. If you're looking for a new meal to try skip this one.

Very good. Take it everytime we go backpacking on the AT. One of our favorites.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Two Dogs Fills you up and then some!
I bought the Pad Thai to try something new on the trail. After packing out eight miles (a trial trail run) it was time for supper. I popped the bag open followed the instructions and chowed down... Then a strange thing happened. I had leftovers. Since I was heading back to the car I decided to reseal the bag put it in a ziploc and hold onto it. Usually a two serving pouch is just about one meal for me after a good hike. This two serving pouch was closer to one and a half meals.
My only real gripe was the number of small plastic bags contained within the main pouch. Not a huge burden to pack out a little bit of extra trash but it means I prob will save this for a end of hike meal.
Overall I would suggest giving this a try if you are looking for something different than beef stew or the various incarnations of mac and cheese.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mountaineer Healthier Than Mountain House
This goes for nearly all of Backpacker's Pantry meals: half the sodium and twice the calories of Mountain House dehydrated meals. Three to five times the dietary fiber of MH meals and 0% cholesterol. More calories equates to more energy in a hiking/backpacking/survival situation and at the same price as Mountain House entrees, Backpacker's Pantry value can't be beat. I found my new brand of backpacking meals.

I am a fan of Pad Thai, and while I did not expect a whole lot from a freeze dried version, I thought I would try it out on a recent Cub Scout campout. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised and it tasted quite good. I will buy it again.

Ease of preparation and low weight of product made it ideal for backpacking. Filling meal at the end of a long day of hiking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Boots Carbs count for Omnivore
After 12 miles on the trail I was looking for something filling and tasty. The Pad Thai by Backpacker's Pantry fit the bill. With claims of enough for 2 servings I was hoping that this would be enough to satisfy my appetite. It was. That was a relief as other dehydrated meals have come up short in the past. Taste wasn't bad either. I won't stop dining out with this product but I will consider it on other backpacking trips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hikerb nice deviation from regular pasta/beans
I usually feast on pasta primavera from Mountain House and was unsure about trying another brand. As a vegetarian, there are not many commercial options for prepared backpacking food for me. This was a nice change, though too much in quantity for one 115lb person. It was also low on salt, but fine in every other way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mel Super Tasty & Filling
This stuff is awesome! It comes with a pack of organic peanut butter, which I thought was pretty cool. It's has a really great combo of spicy, sweet, peanut butter flavors. It's really easy to make, and it was super satisfying after my 14 mile hike. My boyfriend and I shared it for dinner and it was plenty of food for both of us. We of course left a little room for roasted marshmallows :) But, I definitley recommend Backpacker's Pantry Pad Thai! Super tasty!
