Food is excellent. Definitely worth a visit but service is very slow. The downside of a popular restaurant! We had a long wait for our food after we had ordered. There were plenty of Deliveroo orders that were leaving the restaurant which became frustrating as we waited. Would not stop me going back though

Stumbled on this by chance when just wandering around the area. Ordered the fresh vegetable rolls to start -tasty and fresh with a nice dip. For main we shared green Thai curry, chicken noodles in gravy and some plain rice. This was plenty for 2 people and the food was tasty and the curry had a nice kick to it.... More

I'm reluctant to criticize Rosa's - I've been going regularly since they opened the first one in Soho and the standard of the food is invariably excellent and the service polite and friendly. When any restaurant expands it is understandable that the original ethos may become hard to maintain, but the difference in experience across the four or five central... More

I love this place. Really good food, cute little tables, great location in Shoreditch and friendly atmosphere. Only one little thing let them down this time. My husband ordered a pale ale off the menu and when they served it (and he tasted it) he realised it was really strong alcohol %. The menu nor the server mentioned it was... More

Ate here last night - food was ok but nothing special. I had red curry which was nice but i was expecting a little more heat. My partner's Prawn Pad Thai was ok she said a little bland. the rice and spring rolls however were really well cooked. Food came out promptly, getting and paying the bill was a little... More

Best night I have !! Was in the neighbourhood by accident. Heard alot of great thing about Rosa's and I made it for the opening night at West Hampstead. I really enjoy my pork skewers- seriously deliciousness. My main is also absolutely faultless. Love it! Attentive and friendly staff. Will be back next week! 5 solid stars!

This is a great and really popular place that serves freshly made and really tasty Thai food. It's loud and busy inside, and the service is great. I had the vegetable and tofu stir fry which was excellent, and cost £7.50. Expect to wait for a table if you arrive after 12.30pm! I'd recommend it for lunch.

During a trip to meet our son in London we visited the Brick lane/ Spitalfields area. The area is vibrant, lots going on, fun and sitting there is this great cafe serving Thai food. It was a first for my wife and she loved it as did I. The food was very tasty and the portion size good. We would... More

Having long been a fan of spicy food I have always found Thai to be lacking a certain body and fullness compared to Indian. The thick red chicken curry here was absolutely outstanding. Simple place, nice ambience and a great meal for the three of us.

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.
