Breaking news

The distinct branding as Saiphin's Thai Kitchen didn’t last: now trading under the same owners as a branch of Rosa's.

Harden's says

The unstoppable force that is Saiphin and Alex Moore have done it again - their Rosa's Thais Cafe group is now eight strong, with three further openings expected for 2017; Lao Cafe only opened in December 2016, and now a new proto-chain, Saiphin's Thai Kitchen has popped up in London Fields, featuring a similar menu to Rosa's. Lucky east Londoners within 2km can also get delivery.

The “lovely Thai food” at these reliable cafés is “impressively authentic given that they are a chain”“excellent value” and “fast”, if occasionally let down by “iffy service”. Founded in 2008 by Saiphin and Alex Moore, who inherited the name of their first East End site, the group has 15 branches in London and expanded to Liverpool and Leeds this year following the sale of a majority stake to US investors. The couple also have two spin-offs, Lao Café in Covent Garden and the new Chinese noodle bar Hoh Sek in St Katharine Docks.
