The best Thai food in Cardiff

Rosa’s Thai restaurant in Cardiff was our very first restaurant to open in Wales. Located in the heart of the city centre and open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, you can enjoy authentic Thai food in the bustling atmosphere of Church Street.

Our first Rosa’s Thai in Cardiff spreads over two floors with a basement level perfect for private events and parties up to 40 guests. Situated in the heart of Cardiff and a short walk from key attractions like the Museum of Cardiff, Cardiff Castle, St John the Baptist Church, and the Principality Stadium, you’ll have plenty of time to grab comforting Thai stir-fry or curry ahead of a show, during a break from museum visits, or even a quick bite during your workday.

Rosa's Thai Grilled Pork Skewers served on a pale green plate

Our menu is filled with authentic Thai dishes and spices ranging from ‘Thai spicy’ like the famous Papaya Salad to completely mild (but still packed full of flavour like our Massaman Curry). If you’re meat-free, you’ll love our veggie and vegan menu, and there are gluten-free and halal options available too.

When you’re in the mood for a lighter meal that still packs a punch, you might like our Tom Yum Soup. With a warming hit of chilli, Thailand’s best-loved soup balances the sharpness of lime with sweet tomatoes, coconut milk, mushrooms, aromatic herbs, topped with our homemade roasted chilli oil. Try it with Asian mushrooms, Chicken or King Prawns for a satisfying and warming meal.

If you’re in the city or seeing a show at the nearby venue with your children, you’ll be glad to know we cater for their smaller appetites with a menu designed just for kids. They can customise their own meal with chicken satay skewers, crispy prawns or veggie spring rolls, and each meal comes with some fun activities to keep them entertained while you enjoy your meal.

Students, we got you too! Enjoy 15% off your total food bill from Monday to Thursday, just bring your valid student card and we’ll do the rest.

Rosa's Thai table set with celebratory meal and cocktails

If you’re looking to host a private party in Cardiff, we’ve got you covered. Our private dining room on the basement floor can host up to 40 guests. We have a Party Menu that’s fit for a Thai-style feast starting from £25 per person – all dishes are served on a sharing platter so everyone gets to try a bit of everything.  And if you’re looking for a space to host a Christmas party we also serve a festive feast menu in November-December every year.

For other Rosa’s with a private dining area, check out our list below.

We try our very best to accommodate walk-in diners but can get quite busy during the weekends, so we recommend making the reservation online ahead of time. And remember, if you’d rather stay at home when you try our made to order Thai food, you can drop by to pick up a meal or get it delivered straight to your door.

What our customers say about us

The food was delicious! The tom yum soup was a perfect combination of spicy and sour and the sticky rice had the perfect consistency and flavour balance. We were served by very friendly and helpful staff. It was a perfect meal and great experience.

It was our first visit in Wales and we passed by this restaurant and decided to have our lunch here. It was worth it. We were served by Sammie who was very accommodating and friendly. My family recommends this place.

Good service! Waiters are all friendly. Green curry is a little bit spicy
Outstanding food. Highly recommended!!
Felicity L.
The staff were incredibly accommodating, we ordered a dish that ended up being too spicy, and they happily replaced it with a dumbed down spice version! (Pre warning for people who don’t like spice make sure to mention this when you order!!). The restaurant is full of quirky decor and certainly a place I would recommend.

I have walked past Rosa’s Thai cafe so often and always regretted when I went for something else. Tonight I didn’t!!I am fairly new to Thai food so it was super helpful that there were some hints and tips on the menu and the staff were really helpful also.The food excellent and fresh.To start, The pork skewers with a tamarind sauce were amazing; followed by the chicken panang currywhich was light but rich, delicate but spicy and above all full of flavour.What would have made it better!! If I wasn’t here for work and I had someone else to share other things from the menu.
