A new restaurant will open on Coney Street in York next month.
The official opening of Rosa’s Thai will take place on Wednesday, 1 June.
And to celebrate, the chain is offering 50% off your food bill during the soft opening on 30 and 31 May.
Rosa’s Thai started as a market stall on London’s Brick Lane in 2007, where Thai chef Saiphin Moore served up her time-honoured family recipes to hungry lunchtime crowds.
A year later, Saiphin and her entrepreneur husband Alex opened the first Rosa’s Thai restaurant in Spitalfields, just around the corner from the market stall.
Rosa’s Thai York, in the long vacant building once occupied by Joe’s Kitchen, marks the 29th opening for the group.
The restaurant will be headed up by long-standing Rosa’s team members – and husband and wife duo – GM Mumu and head chef Moi, who have been an integral part of the Rosa’s Thai family since its Leeds launch in 2019.
Found next to York’s historic Mansion House, Rosa’s Thai is in an 18th century building which retains many of its original features.
Timber framing and exposed brick walls have been mixed with contemporary touches of plush banquettes and lacquered tile detailing, “creating a warm and inviting restaurant that mixes tradition with modern Bangkok comfort,” the restaurant says.
The 80-cover restaurant also boasts an enclosed courtyard for al fresco dining in the warmer months, and will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
Rosa’s Thai’s signature dishes use authentic Thai produce. Menu highlights include familiar Thai dishes including fan-favourite pad Thai and comforting green curry, as well as Rosa’s specials like drunken noodles to stir-fried aubergine with yellow bean sauce, chilli, soy sauce and sweet basil.
There are plenty of meat-free options for vegetarian and vegan diners, from fluffy sweetcorn cakes with kaffir lime to rich butternut red curry with sweet basil.
Rosa’s Thai also has a dedicated children’s menu and a varied selection of halal and gluten-free dishes.
Managing director Gavin Adair said: “We’re delighted to bring Rosa’s Thai to York this May – it has been a long time coming and we can’t wait to showcase Saiphin’s delicious Thai dishes to the local community.”
