Zaap Thai bringing taste of Thailand to Sheffield
The people of Sheffield will soon be able to experience the vibrant flavours of authentic Bangkok street food as Zaap Thai are bringing their unique brand of casual dining to the city this spring.
The new restaurant is located at 521-523 Eccleshall Road and follows hot on the heels of the success Zaap has enjoyed with their Leeds, Nottingham, Newcastle, York & Headingley ventures, making this their sixth site in seven years. The space previously occupied by Mudcrab will be completely transformed into a venue that will appear as though it has been lifted straight from the bustling markets of Bangkok. A great addition to Sheffield’s dining scene.

Creating job opportunities in Sheffield

Owner Ban had this to say ahead of the Zaap Thai Sheffield opening: “We’ve been looking for a location in Sheffield for a number of years. It’s been at the top of our priority list and we’ve finally found a fantastic site on Ecclesall Road after years of searching.”
“Sheffield is a fantastic city with a rich history and diverse population, and we believe a great fit for Zaap. The restaurant is currently undergoing a major fit out and will be unrecognisable when we come to open in Spring.”
