I really like the flavor of this even though it lacks the complexity of Thai food. If you like heat, by the way, you may want to add some powdered chilies at the end with the peanut butter and curry paste (incidentally, I used 2T peanut butter powder instead of Jif. I couldn't taste the peanut flavor...in case you were curious.). The cilantro and lime at the end really give it flavor. That said, it was an easy and tasty meal & easy to tweak to taste.
