I love Thai food and Zap didn't disappoint! Ending up eating here twice while visiting Auckland. Food was delicious (had the pad Thai and curry) both were awesome. Huge portions, reasonably priced. The atmosphere was nothing fancy but clean, authentic and pleasant staff. They do start to shutdown around 9ish so don't try to go too late.

We spent two nights in Auckland and ate here both nights. Food was tasty and good choice on the menu. An entrée, two mains, two beers (or wines) and a soft drink for around $50. Its not flash (nor meant to be) but when you see it near full with young Thais you figure it is a good place to... More

Maybe the quality is variable depending on the chef and we really did WANT to like the food here (and return again and again!!) given the reviews, but there isn't much positive you can say about a duck curry which was just a hot soup of (mainly) several very large fatty chunks of duck skin and tinned pineapple chunks. Now... More

Went for a quick dinner before the movies at Silo park. The food was as amazing as I remember. Had the omelette over rice with a spicy chilli "tomato" sauce which hit the spot. They also surprisingly had cendol. Of course I had to try it and wasn't disappointed. The sweet coconut broth was warm and the ice gave patches... More

Last reviewed this restaurant a good while back , but recently visited again. I am happy I did so! The place is bright and airy with a lot of seating and the washroom was spotless. The food was as tasty as ever, and very very reasonably priced. Around $NZ13 for a delicious curry. The menu is extensive and caters for... More

Simple atmosphere ... no fancy frills, just good food reasonably priced ($13 for great curry). Handy downtown location. But with wooden floors and furniture, no curtains, a non-acoustic ceiling, etc., it became noisy when it got crowded ... probably not good for the elderly and others a little hard of hearing except during off-hours. We'd go back, and in fact... More

Working around the corner from Zap Thai, its all to easy to get a takeaway or hang around to eat there in an eatery style setting. Food really yummy, well priced and fast - even when busy. A Fab lunch spot
