This is one of my favourite places in Canberra. Most authentic Thai Lao food I’ve had.

Great Lao and Thai food. Small, busy, loud and with music. Very attentive, pleasant staff. Cocktail bar very good, cocktails a must.

The Bettle leaf entre is amazing and a must have. Also try the Watermelon Massacre for a fun and fruity cocktail

Waited 1.5 hours for meal, which is okay, but the food wasn't worth it. Cheapest beer was $13. Staff were nice. Restaurant poor and I wouldn't recommend for dinner or drinks to anyone I know.

The service was outstanding, food was average, sangria was amazing. The seating was too close together and if the tables were spread apart more it’d be nicer. The atmosphere felt too cramped.

About Zaab

Lao comes to Canberra Lao Thai Street Food is a welcome addition to Canberra’s buzzing Lonsdale Street. Combining delicious Lao dishes with punchy Thai-style flavours, this little local is one of our all time faves. The decor is super cool, the cocktail list is simply out of this world and the food - get out of here! It’s simply spectacular! We can’t wait to see this place develop and grow - it’s only up from here. Best dish: their ‘feed me’ option.
