Rosa’s Thai will continue its rapid UK expansion with a site in Birmingham.
The new 80 cover restaurant is scheduled for spring and will launch at Two Chamberlain Square in the Paradise development in the city centre, following Dishoom and Vinoteca, two other London groups making waves outside the M25.
Rosa’s Thai Cafe, which was founded by Alex and Saiphin Moore in London’s Spitalfields in 2008, was acquired by the private equity firm TriSpan in 2018.
What was a solid London group is now a burgeoning chain, with 22 locations in the capital, Leeds, Manchester, and Liverpool. It is probably now more significant than Giggling Squid, which for years has been the easy, ‘know what you’re getting’ decent Thai chain for many.
Gavin Adair, managing director at Rosa’s Thai Cafe, said: “For us, the offer at Paradise was too good an opportunity to miss and we are extremely happy with the setting of our new restaurant overlooking Centenary Way.”
Rob Groves, regional director for Argent, development managers at Paradise, said: “We are very proud that Paradise is now bringing a broad range of great new restaurants to the city.”
