About Rosa‘s Thai

Rosa‘s Thai is a new 80-cover restaurant on George Street, opposite the New Theatre Oxford, just a stone’s throw away from the Ashmolean Museum

Rosa’s Thai started as a market stall in London’s East End in 2007, quickly becoming so popular that co-founder Saiphin Moore opened the first Rosa’s Thai restaurant one year later.

Its red exterior pays homage to the first Rosa’s Thai restaurant in London’s East End, while the interiors are inspired by Bangkok’s rich colours and eclectic style.

The interior walls are decorated with photographs and artwork that tell Rosa’s story, which, combined with wooden accents and plants, create a warm, welcoming environment for guests at Rosa’s Thai.

Guests at Rosa’s Thai can feast on curries, noodles and stir-fries, all freshly cooked to Saiphin’s time-honoured recipes using the best of Thai produce, including chilli pastes from the Huai Yod district and rice noodles from a 3rd generation family business that has been making noodles for over 80 years. 

The menu is bursting with familiar favourites such as spring rolls, pad Thai and green curry and Rosa’s cult dishes from rich red duck pineapple curry and fiery drunken noodles to fragrant chicken larb and papaya salads. 

Vegetarian and vegan diners are also well catered for, with popular dishes including spicy and sour Tom ka soup with Asian mushrooms, punchy Jungle curry with tofu, and fan-favourite stir-fried aubergine with plenty of sweet basil – all best enjoyed with Rosa’s bestselling range of bubble teas and Thai-inspired cocktails. 

Rosa’s Thai also offers a seasonally-changing menu of specials, a dedicated children’s menu and a varied selection of gluten-free dishes, complete with friendly service, making the restaurant a go-to for all dietary requirements.
