The much loved Rosa’s Thai Cafe has now arrived in Victoria.
25 Gillingham Street
If, like me, you are a long-term fan of husband and wife owned chain Rosa’s Thai Cafe then you will be excited about their new opening in Victoria. Before the grand opening, I was invited down to sample the menu.
I met my pal Gethin at Victoria station and took the stroll down the beautifully affluent West London streets to a quiet corner building. We were greeted with a glass of Prosecco and a seat in the corner of a very relaxed, but bustling, cafe.
The kitchen ovens had not yet been installed but the party menu did not disappoint. We ate Fresh Soft Rolls, soft rice paper rolls of fragrant herbs and vegetables joined by salty peanut sauce and a spicy sweet chilli dipping sauce. Shortly followed by Spicy Beef Salad – Yum nuer yang Char-grilled sirloin on spicy leaves with mint & chilli dressing. Every mouthful was fragrant, spicy, light and definitely moreish.
Rosa’s Thai Cafe serves up homemade helpings of authentic Thai food with a dash of London charm. If you want to try to rustle up a Rosa’s at home Saiphin Moore’s first book ‘Rosa’s Thai Café The Cookbook’ is on sale and is definitely worth a look!
