    It was a great experience for us and our friends we all loved the food and atmosphere. Thank you for making a wonderful time. I will come again soon with the grandkids.

    Brilliant food, lovely feel as if you are in a street food place. Free popcorn too!

    I had belly pork which was beautifully crispy on the skin side but moist on the other. A few of my party ordered the same dish and there was a lot of variation between them. The restaurant design is amazing. It's richly themed with a lot of visual interest. Service here is super fast.

    Lovely atmosphere! Amazing food for a surprise birthday party! I will be definitely coming back again!

    Absolutely an amazing place with fantastic decor matching the street food experience. Booked for my husbands birthday and everything was fabulous. The food is fresh and so tasty and recommendations are made from the staff who were efficient and friendly. Value for money was outstanding for the quality of food. Love that the food comes when it’s ready and we will certainly be returning and I have already recommended to 8 different people and we only went last night.

    Absolutely faultless!
    Food was amazing and well priced.
    Decor and atmosphere were brilliant.
    Staff was all fantastic.

    Will go back many many times in the future.

    We ate at Zaap on a Saturday night as a table of 5 and we were seated close to the front door having made a reservation. The general atmosphere of the restaurant is really special with there being a theme which replicates the atmosphere and ambiance of a Bangkok street market. The interior design is amazing and we LOVED it but were disappointed to be sat so close to the entrance as the really special part of the restaurant is closer to the back. The restaurant was really busy and I'm glad we had made a booking as we may have struggled to get a table.
    The service was really good, the food was cooked and served quickly (as Thai Street food should be!) and it was absolutely delicious! We each ordered something different and shared between us, I would really recommend the Red Pork dumplings and chicken satay skewers. We thought it was great value and found the portions satisfying.
    I will be going back again!

    It was my birthday so decided to go to Zaap with my family which included my cousin from Canada, they had never been before and they loved the experience, the food, value, ambiance, and staff were second to none. Truly a wonderful experience.

    Having visited Thailand, it was like stepping into a street food kitchen. Authentic food, surroundings, and a great atmosphere.

    Absolutely amazing!! Food, atmosphere and people 10 out of 10. Really nice vibe and very authentic. Will definitely be back soon.

    The food here is excellent with plenty of choice, the atmosphere is buzzing and the service is faultless. I would recommend anyone to give Zaap Thai a try.

    The food was delicious, fresh and was just like eating street food in Thailand along with all the decor. The staff were really friendly and accommodating as we had arrived 10 mins late for our booking. Our waitress was really lovely and recommended some dishes to try which were great recommendations as our food was delicious! Thank you for a lovely evening full of great food and buzzing atmosphere, we will be back for sure.

    Gorgeous food, great atmosphere and attentive staff.

    Good quality food, some confusion over the book but quickly resolved

    Great food again.

    Food was amazing.

    A bustling and authentic feeling restaurant with super helpful service and delicious food.

    Lovely food. Excellent service. Very reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

    The Zaap experience was amazing totally worth the money the food was great so delicious the venue was as people had commented was like being in Thailand we will definitely be going again.

    Just back from Zaap Nottingham for my wife's birthday and I have to say I was very impressed with everything. Food was awesome service was good and the place itself was just like a little bit of Bangkok, would definitely go again its worth the visit we traveled 17 miles to get here and SPOT ON!

    Good service. Good value for money.

    Really good food, although portions could have been slightly bigger , definitely return at some point.

    Food was lovely, Services was a little slow and the waitress was not aware that we had booked a table for 16 people.

    Fabulous all round! We will return again

    Fab for small children, we all loved it

    Delicious food, authentic ambience and a fun atmosphere! Great location for large groups.

    Great place to take children especially for birthdays as the staff sing Happy Birthday!

    Fantastic meal - food as normal was delicious, service was fantastic and staff are so friendly, could not recommend this place any higher.

    Would recommend to family & friends

    This place is very authentic :) we have had an amazing experience :) thank you Zaap team

    We travel from Belfast to nottingham every year for the ice hockey playoffs and always visit zaap. Love the fresh authentic Thai food served here and hubby loves Chang we can't get it back home, Roll on next year, wish they'd open one in Belfast.

    A lovely meal together with family. great food and brilliant staff.
    Thank you

    Excellent food and ambience, service was great!

    Really enjoyed the experience and staff sang to drum beat for my sons birthday, which was great. Will go again.

    Great restaurant lovely atmosphere and fabulous food.

    Lots of choice, food always fresh and good value.

    Great food in a fantastic setting. Really lovely meal out. Has helped the children be more adventurous.

    A lovely evening out.

    Excellent range of food. Very busy so service was a little hit and miss. Pretty good value for money. Will definitely visit again.

    Great food for everyone in party. Unusual setting which we all loved and efficient service too

    Very tasty food and good service!

    Great service, atmosphere and food. Looking forward to my next visit already .

    Good busy atmosphere table booked for a while but by the door so chilly. Service was poor, loads of staff but no one came to order drinks had to ask 3 times. Food OK, ordered platters bit small for 2 and for the price £10. My main of belly pork was unremarkable but others in my group had chosen better and really enjoyed there's. Probably wouldn't return.

    Fantastic food and the atmosphere was buzzing. Truly enjoyed it. Thank you!!!

    Great food!


    Great atmosphere and fantastic aroma as you walk in. All my friends really love it and will be bringing more friends along to try out the extensive menu. Although I did think there could be a bit more noodles in our dishes.

    Excellent and enjoyed by the whole party!

    Grilled fish of the day in lemon and chilli broth was outstanding!

    I’ve been several times and the food and service have been excellent every time. It’s great value for money and the surroundings are lovely.

    Brilliant place to visit, quirky decor with tuk-tuks, some you can even dine in!! food was very good as well.

    Excellent food and service!

    Great food, service and ambiance for a good price. Would highly recommend!

    It was a beautiful meal, my wife was celebrating her birthday and we brought our own cake. The staff brought it to the table and sang happy birthday whilst playing instruments. It was wonderful...

    Our second visit as the first one was amazing. Disappointed this time though. We had the same starter but it wasn't as tasty and not very hot, we had different mains and they seemed to lack flavour. We all had leftovers ... shame as I'm now reluctant to go back. We sat down at 4.30 and the restaurant was relatively quiet so may be it's better later when the kitchen is busier and the food it fresher?

    Very nice food and good service. Wish we had tried something a little different though.... always next time.

    Loved Zapp, food was amazing as always, will definitely be returning.

    Exciting, fun place, with great food. If you haven't been to Zaap yet, then you really should go!

    Really colourful and fun decor. Food is tasty and good value. It's the type of restaurant you can go to more often as it's well priced and has a great buzz. Without a doubt, Zaap is one of Nottingham's most popular restaurants right now!

    First time at Zaap, will definitely go again!

    We had a great time as the meal was booked for my retirement and the train and decorated street was fab. Food was great and very tasty. Loved it to bits. Will definitely come again. Karen

    The food was delicious and it felt as if we were on the streets of Thailand!

    Great meal, made to feel welcome by the team!

    Booked for 6 for a birthday treat. Seated promptly, venue relaxed and fun, ordered a range of starters to share which were delicious. We also shared the 6 main meals which gave opportunities to try a number of unusual dishes without committing. Soup was very spicy hot so glad this was shared. Overall excellent food, good service and would definitely recommend!

    Nothing we didn't like. Great food, great atmosphere, great service and fantastic value for money! Will definitely visit again!

    The food was ace, the price was decent, occasionally felt a little bit forgotten about by the staff

    All very good. Staff very efficient and food good.

    They catered for our group of 14. All the food came out promptly, hot and very tasty! Would highly recommend this place!

    Great food at a very reasonable price!

    We were a party of 33. The service was terrific at Zaap for so many people. great authentic food with Thai tin plates and Thai politeness.
    The senior lady organised everything marvelously so we were all served a wide variety of dishes, 76 in all, swiftly and accurately. They got a good tip from us all. We will go again.

    Brilliant place, good service, food and atmosphere!

    Great tasty thai food. Just like being in Bangkok. Love Thai food and Zaap does not disappoint. 3rd time of eating here a day will be back soon.

    Very very good!

    It was a really lovely experience at Zaap. Food was good and atmosphere fabulous. They made the evening by singing happy birthday to our granddaughter. Lovely time had by all!

    Really good food at Iberico, service and atmosphere! Would go again and highly recommend!

    Great atmosphere and attentive service at Zaap. Enjoyed our Xmas party there!

    Food could have been slightly more tastefull within the starters but the Mains were superb.

    Zaap is a fun place with authentic Thai food if you follow advice of helpful staff.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had to ask 3 times for a drink though but this was the only negative all evening other than this it was great.

    Excellent food, atmosphere and service throughout, highly recommended Zaap!

    Atmosphere, food, service and value for money all excellent! Just one slight criticism is that the serving staff, while polite, helpful and efficient were somewhat lacking in the smile department. Doesn't Thailand promote itself as "The land of smiles"?

    Great atmosphere, good value and quality tasty food - would go again.

    Having just come back from Thailand it was nice to see how authentic some of the dishes are here. Very busy as usual but seated us on time and the food came out rapidly. Took some friends for the first time and they were suitably impressed. The only negative thing I could say was that there were a lot of birthdays in and the celebrations by the staff are a little over the top and far too loud. Food and service excellent though. Look forward to going again soon.

    Such good fun and nice food! The servers were lovely!

    Food was ok- nothing special- place looked great and the staff were nice- took a while getting served then missed one meal out of the group of 10- don't think we will go back

    Myself and 10 family and friends visited Zaap last night and really enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious and the decor great! The service was a bit chaotic, we waited over half an hour to order drinks and we were missing a few bits of our order but we did have a large party and it was a busy Saturday night. A little more understanding of food allergies would be appreciated too as we had a nut allergy within our party and despite explaining that more than once our chicken satay still came out with the peanut sauce!
    It was my birthday and I was serenaded in true Thai style by all the waitresses / waiters which was pretty special and for me made up for any issues. All the staff were welcoming and friendly and we definitely got service with a smile.
    All in all a great time had and all the amazing food devoured! I would definitely return, perhaps with a smaller party next time and probably not on a Saturday night.

We say…

Zaap only takes bookings for groups of 6 or more

Walking into Zaap you feel as though you've been whisked away to Thailand with all the sights, sounds and scents of Bangkok.

The restaurant's interior features were transported directly from Thailand as the owners would settle for nothing less than a truly authentic experience for diners.

 are matched with real Tuk-Tuk bikes and a Thai train carriage, meaning a visit to Zaap is unlike any other restaurant experience.

When it comes to the food, any true Thai food fanatic will understand the quality of the food served at Zaap.

With many different options available there promises to be something for everyone. Cooked within an open kitchen at the centre of the restaurant you'll see your meal being cooked right before your eyes.

From small snack starters to more substantial Pad Thai dishes or the Pla Pae Sa meal which comprises of the whole steamed fish of the day with Chinese leaves, chilli and coriander. Pad See Aew makes for a great veggie choice: stir-fried rice noodles in a dark and sweet soy sauce with egg, a recipe which originated from Malaysia and Singapore.

Bear in mind that  Zaap only takes bookings for groups of 6 or more, in keeping with the spirit of on the spot street food.

You can find Zaap mere steps from Nottingham's Old Market Square and minutes from the castle.
