Raad Na (Wide Rice Noodles with Gravy)

Raad Na is a delicious noodle dish made with ribbons of wide rice noodles, oyster sauce, chicken and vegetables. It has its roots in Chinese cooking and has a similar thickness to the sauce and flavour that is typical of chinese cooking.

The name “Raad Na” means “to pour on the face” in Thai. This is because the sauce is usually poured onto the face of the noodles.

Cooking Time – 10 minutes
Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Serves 2

200g wide rice noodles
1 tbsp black soy sauce
3 garlic cloves
½ cup mixed sliced carrot and kale
100g sliced chicken
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp fish sauce
3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp cornflour mixed with 1 cup water

  1. Mix your rice noodles with soy sauce and set aside.
  2. Heat the wok and add the oil and garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes until garlic is fragrant. Add the rice noodles and cook for 1 minute to warm. Remove noodles from wok and place on serving plate.
  3. Cook the chicken in the wok until it has changed colour and begun to turn brown. Add the vegetables, sugar, fish sauce and oyster sauce. Stir well to combine.
  4. Add the cornflour / water mix and stir well to ensure a smooth, creamy sauce. When thick enough add the noodles back into the wok and stir to combine.
  5. Serve with a piece of lime and some chilli flakes.
