The overriding memory is that the place was so tiny and packed beyond a safe capacity. This also meant it was incredibly loud and you could barely hear yourself think. Conversation was unpleasant because you were straining to hear and struggling to shout above the...More

This restaurant is truly authentic Thai food. The food is cooked fresh, and it comes as it is cooked. Really enjoyed the Tom Yum Soup, the Cashew Chicken curry. Will be visiting again soon.

Friends dine-in before with no issues with food. Ordered Two Pad Thai with Prawn, strangely the prawn taste chemical but not off. Talk to waitress, and she spooked Thai with the manager obviously, did not even apologised and asked to replace other dish. Funny thing,...More

Typical high street Thai food, you can ask for lowering the spice level, and fresh great drinks and big portions. It's not the first time I went there, I much prefer Rosa to Busaba chain. I recommend pad thai, green curry with wild rice and...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

This is where it all began for us. Our first London Thai restaurant, just a stone’s throw from bustling Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market. Rosa’s Spitalfields has an intimate, laid-back atmosphere, and is where we began serving our signature dishes to a London crowd hungry for fresh Thai food with a modern twist.
