“Lovely Thai food!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

If you were craving for very well prepared Thai dish then try Zap4. Diverse huge menu with choices whatever you like, fast and kind service, the price is definitely affordable.
There is only one annoying thing: somehow the acoustic of the restaurant is soo bad, when there are lots of folks there it is really noisy.

“Great for lunch”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I wanted a wholesome, tasty meal over a business lunch. Zap4 provided it all, the menu (posted on the wall) is large and with great variety. The place buzzes with people and the atmosphere is friendly. Good experience.

Thanks for the review. Yes, wholesome and healthy food is important for all the business people who have lunch in the city every day of the week. Our crowded restaurant atests to this.

“CLEAN FRESH FLAVOURS”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

You don't have to pay a fortune for the BEST Thai in town. Whenever I come to the city I make sure I can get to Zap 4 for lunch or dinner. Since they first opened way back, in the Albert Street food hall they have consistently put fantastic food on the plate. Fresh, flavoursome and plenty of variety for this great Thai "hole in the wall" restaurant, which is now in Commerce Street. After the move to the Queen Street food hall they continued to win applause. This food hall was closed for development. Zap 4 was the only restaurant in the whole food hall that I was pleased found a new spot round the corner. If you love Thai and you want a casual Thai experience in an "order at the counter" and take a seat style, be fed the greatest meal in a timely manner, then this is the place for you. They have updated the decor and there's plenty of room for all your friends but be warned they are often VERY busy.

A spot-on review from a customer of 16 years. They dont come any better than that! One of our best, and sums us up perfectly.
