Launched in 2008 by Thai chef Saiphin Moore and her husband Alex on East London’s famous Brick Lane, Rosa’s Thai Café said it has built a reputation for “bold, punchy flavours” and dishes inspired by Saiphin’s childhood.
Rosa’s use the “best” in fresh British produce alongside traditional Thai ingredients including coconut milk, jasmine rice and tamarind paste, the key ingredient in their Pad Thai, which are sourced directly from farmers in Thailand.
The 60 cover restaurant will open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with a range of menus, including their all day menu, weekday lunch, veggie friendly and coeliac friendly menus.
Saiphin Moore said: “We’ve spent a long time trying to find the right site to open a Rosa’s Thai Cafe in Manchester and The Old Courthouse felt like the ideal location for us.
“We’re really looking forward to becoming part of the city’s vibrant food and drink scene, and have a lot of plans for this restaurant which will set it apart from our Rosa’s in London. We’ve got a busy few months ahead and are really excited about opening our doors next spring.”
