SquareMeal Review of Rosa's Thai Cafe City

Since launching in 2008, this branch of Rosa’s has established itself as a local haunt with a delightfully homely vibe, a reassuring sense of familiarity and a comforting Thai menu. As well as the usual suspects, it’s worth experimenting with less well-known starters such as venison on lemongrass skewers, crispy squid with plum sauce or hot-and-sour salmon soup. There are interesting salads, too, including a version with grilled rack of lamb and spicy aubergine, while mains range from char-grilled pork neck with dry chilli sauce to seafood-stuffed butternut squash with chilli and coconut mousse. To drink, there’s a minimal choice of wines as well as Thai whiskey – although aromatic teas beckon for invigorating refreshment. Rosa’s chefs even share their secrets with online cooking classes on YouTube, too. The only downside is very “patchy” service.

Customer service has always been very patchy but has the worst ever experience yesterday. Had gone for dinner with my family and left without having our meal as the manager was extremely rude. Will never go back again.

I went there and the food was skanky and the service poor.
