After visiting Thailand last summer, I've been trying all the local restaurants here in Kelowna. I really enjoyed Zabb. I haven't eaten in the restaurant, only done lunch and dinner takeouts. The restaurant itself is quite small but is clean and basic, with nice enough decor. I'd estimate there is room for 20 people or less in there so I would recommend reservations if you plan on going at a busy time. Now on to the food review: everything I tried was awesome and completely brought back memories of Thailand. They use nice cuts of chicken and beef, no nasty bits or gristle. The veggies were similar to what I got in Thailand but with a slight local twist, and same for the curries. The peanut sauce with the chicken satay is next level! Prices are very reasonable for the portions, and the staff has been friendly and competent. There are other good Thai places in town, but this is my favorite. They have a relatively basic menu, not an enormous amount of choices but enough to satisfy a group, and what they do offer is done well. Their default spice level is quite low - certainly more tame than over in Thailand, I don't think anyone would find it too spicy. I imagine you could request more spicy, but I haven't bothered yet. Check this place out!

Zabb opened about a year ago and since then we have found our local place for good eats! The service is outstanding. The friendly staff and personable owner keep us entertained and feeling like family;) if you are vegetarian or have a diet restriction they will customize the dish for you!

Glad to have Zabb land on Pandosy Street. Neat, clean, reasonably priced and their Pad Thai is as good, if not better, as any I have ever tasted.

Food was very good, but the service... painful! The servers definitely need more training so that they can read when a table needs serving. Trying to attract the attention of our server was near on impossible, as she was either unwilling or unable to make eye contact. As more customers arrived to pick up their take out orders the service deteriorated even more. We felt that take out customers had priority over those of us unfortunately sat in the restaurant

A pity really, as I agree with other reviewers comments regarding the quality of the food

I would therefore avoid dining at there at the weekends and try a quieter evening or order a take out!

First of all, thank you so much for leaving us a review. Your opinion is very valuable to us.

I have brought up this problem to our servers and trained them how to deal with this kind of situation. I have also added additional staff for the weekends to handle the rush hours. With this change, I'm confident that your next visit to Zabb will be a much better experience.

Thank you again for your review and we hope to see you again soon!
