Disappointed by this restaurant. The curry dishes are not comparable to what I have been served in Thailand. Not expensive overall but not recommended.More

Ordered take away from the Havjney branch and it was beyond awful, the green curry was saturated in oil. Don't bother ordering from here.

Cosy seating but great atmosphere. Staff were super friendly and very attentive. The drunken noodles(prawn) and panang red curry (chicken) are a must try!! We will definitely be back!

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.
