This was great and I would give 5 stars, but man it was a lot of work. I had a learning curve with the rice paper. Next time, I will buy larger rice paper sizes to reduce work. The sauce was good but my local Vietnamese place has this awesome hoisin sauce, so I am biased. Nonetheless, great and I am happy to have the experience making them. Side note - I read the comments and didn't use lettuce but added Basil

Make them small! I overfilled the rolls at first and they were messy and unwieldy. Making summer rolls was fun to try, but the result wasn't really worth it.

Fun to make but the flavor is in the sauce. It would be nice to add more flavor to the rolls.

Not easy to put together or eat. Added avocado and mint per other users suggestions and did not care for it with the mint.
