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.

We first visited Zab Thai when it was located near a Pemex station. While we enjoyed the food, we couldn't handle to odor. Luckily, Zab Thai moved to a location on the beach in the Gold Zone. Equally as lucky, we found it. The place is still extremely small and can probably sit a dozen folks inside and another 6-8... More

Dishes sometimes do not come out at same time but it is worth it to try their food. The flavour and quality rivals any Thai eatery on the west coast of US or Canada. Value is there and you must try. We love eating outside in there courtyard, which is very close to the ocean. the bar down the other... More

This is our second review of Zab Thai - but hey have changed locations and this is not always a good thing. In this case the restaurant has moved to a location just off the beach in the Golden Zone in Mazatlan - just south of the Flores hotel. They offered seating outside (although does not have beach view) and... More

So nice to have something different to eat! We had the chicken curry with vermicelli noodles and the teriyaki short ribs with spring rolls as appetizers. It is one of the few places where our Vegan friends can eat out, so that was a huge bonus! They had Pad Thai and green curry. The 1, 2, 3 heat scale worked... More

I had wanted something a little different on my recent trip to Mazatlan & as someone who enjoys thai food - Zab Thai was a great choice! Located down the walk way from Lucky B's (the restaurant could definitely use more signage to bring people down as if I had not known it was there from other reviews, I probably... More
