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

I had the spicy chicken curry with rice. Finally a Thai place that can make a spicy curry. The portion was large enough for 2 people. Good value for the location and a change from the excellent Mexican food found almost everywhere in Mazatlan.

I came for the pho and left happy, that said the 5 people who were with me were also happy. Good menu with vegetarian options that kept everyone happy. I'm told they deliver also.

We visited Zab Thai twice during our visit to Mazatlan in November. The food is excellent with lots of options. The owner was very gracious and came out to speak to us "Gringos." We enjoyed both Green & Red Curry, salad rolls, a dish with peanut sauce and the ginger dish. We like spice and ordered medium. The waitress advised... More
