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!

The cafe was busy on a Saturday afternoon. The Pad Thai noodles were really good and it's a big portion (probably could share a starter with someone). The spring rolls with a sweet chilli dipping sauce were even better - definitely recommend those. The staff were very friendly and attentive and service was quick. For Pad Thai noodles, spring rolls... More

The food was wonderful- tasty, hot and deliciously full of flavour. Can highly recommend the chicken wings starter, the Deep Fried Salmon red curry and the dry fried chicken. The restaurant is not very big but the staff are welcoming and attentive. The food is served quickly so the wait for a table is not long. We booked to ensure... More

We had a lovely meal with great service at Rosa's in Spitalfields. I'd even go so far as to say - the best Thai food we've had. The waitress was so friendly and even gave my daughter some recipe cards. Small place but big atmosphere!

Very intimate, cosy spot in the heart of Spitalfields. Great menu and very reasonable. The service was very poor however which was annoying as everything else was great. Buzzing spot and reliable food. Don't go if you are in a rush...!

Delicious Thai food in a cosy, intimate setting. Turned up at the door after 6pm and got a table for 2 straight away. Service was quick, atmosphere is warm and is great for a date/dinner for a small group. Great choice of food, prawn Thai green curry was perfect.

I really am a massive fan of Rosa's and this branch in Spitalfields never disappoints. Like most Rosa's it is very intimate, but this isn't a problem. The service on our visit on a Saturday in January was brisk, polite and efficient. The food was very good, but the real bonus for me is the price; 2 starters, 2 mains... 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.
