Thai Angel is now Zabb Thai

Zabb Thai - 34-11 30th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11103
N/W Train to 30th Avenue

It's only been a couple of months since Astoria's staple Thai eatery, Thai Angel has changed management and is now called Zabb Thai. My colleague Floozigrl from Joey in Astoria and I walked by the other day and were astonished by how quickly this place reopened. It looks a lot trendier and welcoming than Thai Angel--not to knock the old place but it was starting to look a bit stale.

I grabbed a menu and am happy to report that the prices are inexpensive and the selection is definitely extensive. Here's a quick sampling of the menu. As is my custom, email me if you'd like to see the entire menu at critic@foodistanyc.com or check out their website.


Fresh Roll - Fresh roll with bean sprouts, cucumber, scallion, carrot & egg...$5

Crispy Golden Fish - Fried fish with sweet chili sauce...$4

BBQ Beef - BBQ beef served with Zabb's spicy sauce...$8

Curry: Costs range between $8.50-$13.95 depending on whether you get veggies, chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, squid, scallops, a seafood combo or duck.

Pineapple Curry - Red curry with coconut milk, tomato, pineapple and basil

Panang Curry - Curry paste with coconut milk and kaffir lime leaves

Jungle Curry - Curry paste with bamboo shoots, eggplant and basil

Fish: Fillet fish...$12, Whole fish...$18

Pla Sram Rod - Deep fried fish with mango, cashew nuts & Zabb's special chili sauce

Pla Ka Prow- Deep fried fish with garlic, chili and basil sauce

They also have lunch specials, Monday-Friday 12p-3p for $7-$8.

Give Zabb a try, especially on a nice day. They have the entire front window open so while you won't exactly be sitting on the sidewalk, you'll still get the atmosphere of 30th Ave and of course feel the pleasant spring breeze.


  1. I wasn't fond of Thai Angel, so this is a positive change. Are they related to the same Zabb Thai from Jackson Heights?

  2. Hey Meg,

    I don't think the 2 Zabbs are related. The one in Jackson Heights is called Zabb Queens Restaurant.

  3. When the management changed, I lost my favorite dish from Thai Angel, the crispy mock duck in chili sauce. They still have mock duck on the menu, the dish at Thai Angel was out of this world.
    Otherwise, the food was on par with TA.

  4. I used to eat at Thai Angel and order take out from there 2004 - 2006. I will have to try the new... well it is now 2 years old, but still, I will have to check it out!

  5. It's gone now Casey - it was replaced by a restaurant called Matsu. http://www.foodistanyc.com/2010/01/goodbye-zabb-thaihello-matsu.html
