“Great flavor, good choice in the immediate area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

I work in the area and visit this restaurant monthly. It's conveniently located and is one of the few places that I would consider "nicer" dining in the immediate area and the only ethnic choice. The dining room is attractive, clean and comfortable. It's a great choice for business lunch.

Some things to keep in mind if you choose to dine here are that the service is typically on the slower side so don't expect to get in and out quickly and their chef's seem to drastically vary with spice level. It's extremely consistent at being inconsistent - agreed to by all the regulars I know. Be very specific with your order if you desire your food to be mild. I would also add that while they have the typical vegetarian options, they are extremely light on the veggies in their dishes - even when you ask/apy for extra. (e.g. 3 pieces of broccoli was considered an order) These are essentially the reasons I rate them as average.

On the positive side, we've enjoyed the curries, noodle dishes and some of their specialty items. The flavors are interesting and very good if you can tolerate the spice level. They offer white jasmine and red rice options. Their desserts have won a couple of local awards and are interesting - macaroons and forbidden coconut rice.

“Fresh, fast, tasty, excellent service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Zab won't disappoint with friendly, fast service and fresh Thai food. Pork dumplings (lady's purse) and basil fried rice were very good. Curries are delicious too. Kid friendly earlier in the evenings but good for adults also.

“thai done well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

i wasn't expecting a lot but was pleasantly surprised. met a friend for lunch and was served quickly and efficiently. the seaweed salad was very good and the chicken pad see ew was very well executed. the thai iced tea was ok - a little bland in my opinion compared to others i have had in the past.

“One of Best Thai in the Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We went for Friday Dinner. Food was one of the best Thai I ever had. (Including portion size). Ambiance is simple and peaceful. Service is slow but we really didn't mind about that as we got more time to talk/socialize.

We will go again.

“Good food, slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I love the food here, especially the Pad Thai. I just wish the service were faster. I only go here when I have plenty of time. Lunch menu much more affordable than dinner.
