Great article by Laura Joint for Plymouth Magazine:

Translated from the Isan language of north east Thailand, the word ‘Zaab’ means ‘delicious’. 

You’ll find Zaab a cobble stone’s throw away from the waterfront on the Barbican, tucked away inside the shopping parade at 27 New Street, just behind the ice cream shop at Island House,  where diners can enjoy simple, authentic Thai dishes in a friendly atmosphere.

Zaab was opened in January 2017 by Vas Sellers, who grew up in the Sakon Nakhon province in Isan, a region close to the border with Laos that’s famed for its extra spicy cuisine.      
Vas cooks everything fresh to order, daily specials are also available including a selection of seafood dishes. The most popular dishes on the main menu are masaman curry with plenty of peanuts, mixed vegetable stir fry, Pad Thai (stir fry noodles), Thai-style fried chicken, Thai fish cakes, Thai-style pork skewers and Vas’s own favourite, green papaya salad.

Because everything is cooked to order, it’s advisable for large parties to book ahead. Zaab offers a takeaway service for people to pop in and there is also home delivery. Zaab doesn’t sell alcohol and the ‘bring your own’ corkage charge is £5 per table.
