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.

Loved it - if you like spicy, for me the green Thai chicken curry was as nice as it come (perfect 4 x S’s - sweet, spicy, savoury, salty).My friends had the - red Thai curry and then for the non spicy lovers they had pad Thai and a… duck/pineapple curry (a bit sweet for me but my friend loved it).Also had a nice selection of starters - one that had 5 different selections and the coconut shrimp (reminded me of bubba gump in the US).Thank you Sammy (from Hong Kong) thoroughly enjoyable night)

Popular Thai restaurant. Had to book. Food was ok but service a little slow. No real complaints. Thom Yang soup was excellent. Vietnamese spring rolls a little bland. Sweet and sour chicken ok, mussaman beef nice. Overall no complaints.

Had lunch on a Sunday afternoon so was quiet with plenty of tables. There are upstairs and downstairs seating areas. The express lunch menu was £13.95 for a starter, curry or stir fry and a soft drink, so we tried that. Portions a little smaller than normal menu but still plenty for lunch. Thought it was good value. Had red curry, pad see ewe, satay chicken, came with jasmine rice. All were delicious and we enjoyed it. Service was efficient, friendly and relaxed. Happy we chose it and would definitely return. Sorry for the half eaten curry photos, couldn't wait 😂

Beautiful food, but service is way too fast, why do restaurants insist on clearing plates from the table before the whole table is finished. (There were only 2 of us)
