Very Disappointing. Probably the worst squid dish I had ever had the misfortune to taste in my life. Tasteless and under seasoned. and also the quality of squid was atrocious. Noddle dish was just OK but the quality of the seafood was dire. Not recommended...More

Unassumingly positioned in a quiet area this is a great little location for some truest cheerful Thai dining. Friendly staff and great service. A lot bigger than it looks from the outside. Great in the summer evenings if you can get close to the large...More

A small popular restaurant just off Brick Lane. Had to wait around 10 minutes for a table but we did go at peak times without a reservation. Service wasn't particularly fast but as I said they were busy. Food was excellent and not too expensive....More

A really nice, small Thai place with a good-sized menu. The food was great as was the service, and they have vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free options available!

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...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...More

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.
