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.

Young boy and girl eating from the Kids' Menu at Rosa's Thai

If you’re in the city or seeing in 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 in the basement floor can host up to 40 guests. We have a Party Menu that’s fit for a Thai-style feast starting from £22.95 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.

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.

Came in out of interest and was immediately greeted by professional and polite SammieOrdered the drunken noodles with beef as well as Chicken patties, and the food was ready very quickly.The presentation of the food and the smell were both incredible. It was absolutely perfect for me, as a big fan of spicy foods. The portion size was quite significant as well, went from really hungry to really full.Can't wait to come back.

Very tasty and very spicy too - just how I like it. Nice food, I think the manager (guessing she was) of this place came across a bit bossy but it didn't spoil my experience. Very fresh food too

Best Thai outside Thailand! We had the green curry and it was amazing. The fresh spring rolls were great and the massamum had the softest beef. Felt transported back to Thailand. We've always been for Bangkok cafe but this place is now our firmly our favourite in Cardiff. Only down side was the satay chicken was slightly on the small side for a portion will definitely return in future. Thanks

Popped in for dinner at Rosa’s Thai as I am always thrilled to see another Asian twist to the already blossoming Cardiff food scene.What made the meal was eating with people who insist on putting it all in the middle and trying a bit of everything - sorry Smithy, keep your bhunas, I just love sharing food!!We shared:🇹🇭 Sharing Platter: Chicken Satay skewers, homemade spring rolls, juicy pork skewers, Thai spiced calamari and a bundle of crisp Thai prawn crackers!🇹🇭 Chicken Pad Thai with coconut sugar and roasted peanuts.🇹🇭 Rosa’s house Red Thai Curry with king prawns and bamboo shoots.🇹🇭 Massaman Curry with slow cooked beef and potatoes.🇹🇭 Pad Priew Wan: Thai sweet and sour chicken with a fiery pineapple sauce.🇹🇭 Coconut rice - obvs. because, what else?Super friendly staff, warm decor with lots of seats both upstairs and downstairs. Great for big parties, hot dates and catch ups with friends. Also super child friendly with a kiddies menu - did I mention they also sell boba tea?

Food and service were excellent. Really enjoyed the Penang, plus we had a free starter through the website as it was our first booking. Only slight criticism was that a 15% service charge was added on (for a table of 2) without asking - always something that annoys me a bit

Staff was ok, but we had to ask for additional plates and paper napkin.Taste was fine but portion for chicken panang was small and tofu for vegan versions of curry was extremely chewy.But again taste of different curries was good (could have been spicier/hotter).

A very nice little restaurant/cafe tucked away from tourists, with mice ambience, friendly and quick service. The food was very tasty, we had a selection of starters, such as satay, and spring rolls which were a light start to am range of different curried and noodles, which had ranging spices and tasted very authentic. All in all a very good meal.

Great place to eat and really awesome food (maybe because we were eager for something Thai to eat😜). Everything was cooked to perfection and very enjoyable. One thing to note is that they add service charge but since the whole industry is trying to recover after the pandemic I decided to pay it. Let me just repeat myself again - the food was really great!
