Rosa's Thai Café is to launch its first West London location, in London's Chelsea, taking the total number of Rosa's sites to five.
The new site for the company, founded by husband-and-wife team Alex and Saiphin Moore will open in a Grade-II listed building on Fulham Road.
There will also be a cocktail bar drinks using exotic fruit and spiced blends - a first for a Rosa's site. Drinks will include Rosa's version of an espresso martini made with Sam Song rum, a shot of espresso coffee, KahlÁºa and vanilla syrup; ginger & pomelo leaf martini - homemade pomelo leaf-infused gin or vodka shaken with fresh ginger, lychee juice, egg white and lemon bitters. Wines and Chang beer will also be on offer.
The design of the site will reflect the fact that Rosa's is a marriage of two cultures, divided into two distinct areas replicating that of a modern Chelsea-style living room in the bar at the front complete with feature fireplaces, contrasted against the more iconic minimalist Rosa's décor in the restaurant at the back with a variety of slumber-back dining chairs and banquette seating. Key features include terrazzo-style flooring, white ceramic brick wall tiling, chalked-up menu blackboards and traditional artwork specially commissioned from Thailand.
