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.

So many Thai restaurants but Zap 2 is great as they have the balance of ambiance, food, service & price all at that point of difference which brings back! When you have the 'X-Factor' keeping the consistency is a challenge; but for Zap 2 I have to say, "it is consistently excellent!"

Our friends took us here tonight. The place was packed for a Sunday (we reserved ahead fortunately) but our food came really quick. Everything was tasty and the price of the mains is really good value. There is a lot to choose from on the menu and heaps of vegetarian options. Would recommend this to anyone who likes Thai food.

Zap Thai is in Dominion Road, Mt Eden , Auckland. A good family Restaurant. Very friendly staff who are capable of explaining the dishes to a non - Thai person. Our favourite dish is the Whole Fried fish in hot and sour soup. Can't remember the name.

Having lived in Bangkok for several years, I find most NZ Thai restaurants to be rather different from what you'd get in Thailand, not least because they skimp on authentic ingredients. Not Zap 2 though. They have an excellent chef and the food tastes very much like what you'd get in Thailand. They can also serve vegetarian/vegan dishes. Zap 2... More

Popped in for a sneaky Thai meal on a Saturday evening, didn't book just turned up, about 7.30pm. Two adults and one 10 year old. Not too busy. This is a super casual place, some staff were at a nearby table with a laptop doing some business deal. The food is great, I haven't been to Thailand but might have... More
