Despite the fact that the restaurant does not look very nice from the outside, they have very delicious selection of curries, including the vegetarian options. I ordered Red butternut curry, my food arrived in about 15 mins and was presented very nicely and clean. Although...More

We came here for lunch on the bank holiday and thought the food was lush. We got sat right away and nothing was too much trouble. They even catered for allergies, which was really considerate. Staff were polite.

This place always seems busy...even on a Tuesday when we visited. So busy that a small queue was building outside as we left. The food is fairly priced and portions good. One warning...I'd suggest ordering one chilli down on your normal spice level as this...More

I love this place. Been twice, both times we were sat straight away but still lively enough to have a buzz. Food is really tasty. Menu is v standard Thai but it's fine well. Decent priced wine list. Efficient service.

While tourists pass by this inconspicuous Cafe in the less noticed Crossroads, I sat at one of the best curries I had for a Long Time. Will come back to try the Others precious from the menu.

The food here is amazing. This is my go-to joint. I find that the Thao Green curry can be various degrees of spicy on different visits, but that's okay with me. They also sell a fantastic cooking book.

Food was lovely but the service was absolutely horrendous, forgot my girlfriends order twice and showed no sympathy when they realised, not so much as a sorry. It’s a great shame as the food was very nice but the service was so bad I’ll never...More

Went here for dinner with some friends. Normally it's a lovely little cafe serving pretty good Thai food. On this occasion, the pork starter was pretty much inedible (Far too gristly and chewy) and the chicken in both mains (red curry and chicken and cashew)...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.
