I dined here for Mother's Day with my family after going to the movies. We were early so didn't have any trouble getting a table for four. I can recommend the Satay Chicken (no peanuts) for an entree - superb!! The Pork Mussaman Curry was excellent too. Good portion sizes. Very friendly & informative service. Very clean looking kitchen &... More

This food has some of the best tasting IsaanThai food in Auckland. For those who are unsure of what "Isaan" is, it is the northeast region of Thailand that borders Laos. Most Thais in New Zealand are actually from this region so generally the food in Tha restaurants reflect this to a degree. They are not like a lot of... More

Have been going here for many years. Never had a bad meal. Very well priced. The only thing i found is now they charge you for rice where before it was free with the meal. Great place if you want a quick, nice and easy meal.

Delicious authentic Thai food that always delights the taste buds with an explosion of flavour! Fast & friendly service- we have never been disappointed! Zap2 is our favourite Thai restaurant that we frequent often & recommend it to all.

It's hard to find decent Thai restaurants that don't change up the flavor of the dishes to match local tastes, but at least here we felt the Pad Thai was decent and had good flavor. Furthermore the pricing is affordable and won't break the bank. Definitely want to come back for other menu items like the curry etc.

Lots of choice and the fact that so many thai people in here speaks volumes. Very reasonable too.

Recently refurbished clean and tidy venue and the food is always of a high standard. I have eaten here often and am always amazed at the speed with which the meal is delivered and how reasonably priced it is.

It may well be that you cater to your patrons needs... NO! not if you are a thai restaurant! Most Kiwis are not Thai chefs, so prepare good, tasty thai dishes. The food has been 'dumbed down' for the inexperienced and somewhat overly traditiona,l ex-English palate held by many Kiwis still. Which is a shame. The owner is a lovely... More
