I chose Rosa's for my birthday meal because I love the authentic, tasty Thai flavours and the straightforward reservation policy meant that making a group booking was a fair and painless process (no complicated deposit). Upstairs can get a little crowded, but the ambience downstairs was perfect for a larger group that likes to sprawl out and make noise. I... More

I work not far from this place and come sometimes for lunch or for take away dinner. The food is absolutely delicious! I love the pad thai and the curries. The service is also great, the staff always very friendly. Their restaurant in Spitalfields is a very cozy location.

Was really looking for some excellent Thai food and a friend recommended this place. The food did not disappoint. Everyone on our table loved what they had. It's quite a noisy place so if you want something quiet then it might not be for you . . . but they were queuing out of the door as many people thought... More

I had the prawn Tom yam soup as a main as I was not overly hungry.. it was delicious, the flavours were bold and the prawns so fresh. We also ordered the drunken noodles which were lovely too, it was very strong in flavour.. over all fresh authentic food and great service thank you!!

Really amazing Thai food. The pad thai is to die for and their hot and sour soup is excellent as well. Really nice cozy atmosphere with tight tables and quick, bustling service. Look forward to returning soon!

I took my Philippino wife and her family for dinner on New Year's Eve. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the food was authentic and tasty. I had a beef Masserman curry which was fantastic and the rest of my family really enjoyed their selection from the menu. Definitely needs another visit!

The grilled sausage starter and red salmon curry here are to die for and the spicy fish with herbs is unforgettable. Fantastic ko pi pi cocktail too. Excellent friendly service from Orawan - will be sure to come again!

This place is so close to my workplace but I recently tried it. It's the best Thai food I have ever had! The place is small and cosy, the staff is friendly. And the best thing is that the food is excellent. Plus it is healthy and reasonably priced also. This has become my fav lunch place if I get... More

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.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
