Success! Thanks for posting your review of Zao Noodle Bar. You’ve done the world some good today.

Good, but bland Thai food

I like Zao for lunch, but I agree it's not the greatest Thai food around. I don't really like spicy food, so Zao is good for people who perfer milder Thai. I love the pad thai and the thai iced tea is great. The best part used to be the magic fish at the end that would tell your fortune, but the past couple of times I've gone they didn't give them to us.

Something's wrong with this Zao

I always get the Veggie Pho at the Zao up in the city, but when I ordered in Palo Alto, it came out blech -- like hot tap water and soy sauce. I can't recommend this Zao, but the one off Fillmore is still tasty.

I ordered the Vegetarian Pho and it was entirly lacking in flavor. In addition the Service was slow and impolite. I was very disappointed.

I went to Zao's for lunch with a friend. Both dishes that we had were lacking taste, though they were denoted to be spicy on the menu.
