Any updates on Zabb Thai? Good substitute for Sripraphai?

janethepain | Jul 2, 2007 06:25 PM

So I've read all of the posts on Zabb Thai in the East Village, but most are from last fall, when the place opened as Zabb. Anyone been there recently? The reason I ask is that my parents were recently wowed by a calamari salad at Saigon Grill (Vietnamese) and I think there are Thai salads that would do even better. I read that the Issan region is known for its salads, which is why I've been wondering about Zabb. Since I don't eat out with my parents often, I'd love to get it right on the first try. I'm looking specifically for the combination of spicy, sweet, sour and salty that Thai salads have. Would Zabb be good, or should I just take them to Sri? From the other posts, I'm worried about getting watered-down glop. Is it still BYO?
