Love their orange chicken! I liked their old location much better, it was easier to access in my opinion. However the new location is closer to the tourist area. I don't blame them for moving, it's just too bad you have to put up with the noise from Lucky B's to get to Zab Thai! So put in your earplugs... More

If your missing Thai food while visiting Mazatlan head to Zab Thai located behind Lucky B's. A modest place that serves great Tahi food and they will deliver.

For the folks who commented you could not get vegetarian food here; you're wrong! The pad Thai has the option of coming with tofu; and the staff double checked that I was okay with having egg in the dish! The food itself was quite good; a little too much sauce but still very tasty and filling (at a very reasonable... More

We ate here a couple nights ago and we were the only ones in the restaurant. We had heard some people thought the quality had declined so we questioned our choice. However we found the food to be very good and even received a free appetizer to go along with the entrées that we ordered. Obviously the service was good... More

Hey guys . This restaurant does well to fit ur style of eating . The waitress knows good English and didn't have a problem asking the kitchen if food had fish oil or chicken stock in it . The green and red curry are very delicious and the pad Thai although good is sweet. There is tofu options so I'm... More

Went here and was very skeptical upon entering but then got comfortable with the decor and waitresses and menu...Ordered two dishes from between # 18 to # 41 and received a free spring roll order for free as a promotion...The dishes were the Pad Thai which was good but the noodles were a little overcooked and no egg but all...

We've been twice during our stay so far. I'm sure we'll be back again before we leave. Loved the food! Loved the server! My only problem is how long it takes to get our meals, but well worth it. We did have a large group the last time and it took forever to get our food. Would not recommend for... More

Not the easier place to find. Take a right towards the ocean at lucky b's. Some of the best Thai food I have ever had! A bit of a wait but well worth it. Yellow curry chicken delicious. Sweet and sour chicken amazing. Deep fried wonton yummy! Super friendly service. Good prices. Great for take out.

The best advice for finding this little gem is to head towards Pancho's on Playa Gaviotas, but go down the walkway to the right of Lucky B's. It's on the left at the end of the alley. The service was great- 3 lovely ladies were very attentive, and even put out a fan when they saw how hot we were... More

Excellent food, great service. A dependable favorite! Our faves are the Chicken Pad Thai and the fresh spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce.
