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.

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.
