Your standard Thai takeaway/ restaurant. Some dishes are great (try the pad ped stirfry but be warned, it's spicy!) others are unexciting. My dad had a pretty average stirfry in a lot of too-sweet liquidy sauce. The food comes out quickly and service is fairly fast. Was good for a quick lunch, nothing special though- I wanted to give 3.5... More

I love Zap for their quick, friendly and efficient service and their consistently good food. We have been to Zap many times to dine in and takeaway and have never been unhappy.

Not pretentious, but excellent food and generous portions. Excellent spring rolls which is one of my addictions. Good service and well-priced..

Have been here 3 times- first two were great, last one was poor. So have given 3 out of 5 as an overall rating of the three experiences. Previous two visits it seemed the owner was there, & possibly a different chef, as top notch food & service. We had loved the service, despite being busy & tasty meals. BUT........ More

Hot food, good service, great serving sizes. What more could you ask for and very affordable. Parking can be tricky so maybe uber?

Went for a quick lunch, was very tasty, fast friendly service. Good sized meals and very reasonably priced . Generous servings of rice provided with the soups that we enjoyed, our son loved his chicken Pad Thai which was a great size serving also .

We have been here, maybe half a dozen times and find it friendly, casual and fun. When we want Thai at short notice when in Auckland we know we won't be disappointed. You know it is good when you see the restaurant full of Thai people enjoying the food.

Zap 2 on Dominion Road doesn't look like much however the food and service there is just great. Couldn't have asked for more and they were very accommodating to keeping the spice content low for children.
