Barts used to be the best for green and yellow Thai curry paste but I haven't seen them for sale a long time though to be fair I no longer live in the UK (where they might be clogging the supermarket shelves!)

If you can, find a chinese supermarket or one of those small local shops that import the real stuff. I bought a supermarket brand recently, made one curry and threw out the rest of the jar. It was vile.

Thai taste paste in a little pot is the closest I have found to proper homemade one.

Mae ploy....All natural and probably what your local (good) take away uses ....

Thai Taste Green Curry Paste Gang Keow Wan at Sainsbury's is good, it's a 200g pack, you buy the coconut milk, fish sauce etc. separate. They sell little 2 meal kits of it in the Lidl too, with a bit of coconut milk and coriander in with it.

I use Thai Taste although I mainly use the red one. Just add fish sauce / coconut milk / lime leaves and chicken / veg.

I use a whole little pot to 2 tins of coconut milk.

I buy Thai Taste in Waitrose- there are a few different ones.

I buy my pastes online from here:

They are amazing, and very authentic, though the hotter one of the green curry pastes is very hot indeed.

Mae buy it in our local Chinese supermarket.

I agree with GCAcademic above, the mythaicurry pastes are easily the best you can buy and the Bangkok paste is the milder of the 2 green pastes they sell. The Mae ploy pastes are like stock cubes and about 20% salt! As for Thai Taste, each to their own I suppose but after six years living and working in Thailand, the last thing they tasted of to me on trying was Thai:-(
