Zabb Thai on 30th Ave. in Astoria

I passed this shortly after I passed "El Grill" (see my earlier post). 30th Ave. around 35th St. Is this place related to the Zabb Isaan place in Jackson Heights (and I believe there's also an outpost near Union Square)? Any thoughts?

    I believe Zabb City in Manhattan is connected to Zabb in JH, but the one in Astoria is apparently a pretender. I've heard the Manhattan branch doesn't compare with the original

      it's even more confusing then that...I heard the Manhattan and Astoria ones were opened by the original owners, but that they sold the Queens one to somebody else, who remodeled and changed the menu style but kept the same chef, so Zabb Queens isn't owned by the same people as either or both the others...but is still the best of the bunch!

        That explains why the original Zabb and Zabb City don't share a website.
