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

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.

Typical high street Thai food, you can ask for lowering the spice level, 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 their green tea.

Been trying to find an excuse to get here for a while...USA friends over and hence we snuck in for a later lunch. Plenty of selection of mixed starters and then the next Tom Tam Goong outside of Thailand that I have tasted (I worked in Thailand for 5 years...) Main course selection is the Thai classics, but well presented... More

We had the pad thai, pad see ewe, pineapple fried rice and some curries. It was tasty! Prices are average during lunch hours but expensive for dinner. We came a few times already to this place and every time the service is poor. The prices are going up but service is terrible, don't really understand their strategy. 6/10!

Description
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
Spitalfields
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.
