Located along O'Connell Street in North Adelaide, Zaep Tastes of Thailand specialises in offering Thai cuisine. Some of their dishes are not seen often at other Thai restaurants in Adelaide. In addition to their main dishes, the restaurant offers dessert dishes that vary daily.

The chunks of tofu and eggplant in the Pad Ma Khue had a slight smoky flavour and still had a nice bite to them. Enough salted soy beans were used to impart the dish with a delectable salty flavour and the basil gave it its distinctive Thai flavour. If you prefer, the dish can be ordered with chicken mince instead of chunks of tofu.

For those concerned about having to deal with bones, the piece of stewed pork knuckle in the Kha Moo was boneless, making for easy eating. The pork knuckle was cooked just right and the shiitake mushrooms and quail eggs partnered it nicely. The master stock it was cooked in had a rich unami flavour and the blanched Chinese broccoli helped to cut through the richness. For a bit of spice you can spoon the chilli sauce provided over your portion before eating it.

The chunks of chicken in the Cashew Chicken had succulent flesh which was set off nicely by the crisp coating. There was a generous amount of cashew nuts to add a lovely crunchy element and slices of capsicum for a bit of sweetness.

On Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, you can order from a lunch menu in which most of their dishes go for $13.50. On Wednesday 1 April, Zaep gave away 100 lunch serves of Gai Kaprao (stir-fried chilli basil chicken with rice) to people who had lost their jobs or been adversely affected financially due to the Coronavirus crisis.
