Rosa’s Thai Cafe confirms opening date for new Royal Albert Dock Liverpool site

A date for your diary has been confirmed! Rosa’s Thai Cafe will open at our Royal Albert Dock on 25th February
Rosa’s Thai Cafe, the hugely popular group of London restaurants founded by Thai chef Saiphin Moore, is gearing up to open its doors in Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock development on 25th February. The new Liverpool site is the group’s very first restaurant outside of London, and to celebrate the opening, diners will be treated to a soft launch offer of 50% off all food on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th February.
Saiphin and her husband Alex opened the very first Rosa’s on London’s iconic Brick Lane in 2008, and 10 years later the restaurant group is renowned for its punchy and flavoursome Thai food inspired by Saiphin’s family recipes, made using the best in authentic Thai ingredients alongside locally-sourced British produce.
Guests at the new Liverpool restaurant can expect fragrant favourites such as ‘Salmon red curry’ through to ‘Stir-fried aubergine with chilli and basil’, and Rosa’s famous ‘Pad Thai’ signature. For those with room for dessert there’s also a small selection of traditional and refreshing sweets such as ‘Mango & sticky rice’ and ‘Coconut cream ice cream’.
A dedicated menu of Liverpool specials is planned for later in the year.
Housed within a Grade I listed former warehouse, the new Rosa’s Liverpool restaurant is split over two floors and host up to 88 seated customers. The interior, curated by design agency Gundry & Ducker, retains the original open brickwork of the building, with huge arches looking out onto the docks, an open theatre kitchen and a mezzanine level perfect for hosting events, birthday parties and private dining.
Paying homage to the Royal Albert Dock and Liverpool surroundings, Rosa’s Thai Cafe takes influences from its waterfront surroundings.
Saiphin commented ahead of the launch:
“We can’t wait to open our doors in Liverpool and are so excited to become part of the city’s thriving food scene, I’m already working on some Liverpool specials to launch later in the year! As one of the first cities to open up trade links with Asia, we couldn’t think of a better place than Liverpool to open our first restaurant outside of London – especially in a location with such enviable views across the historic Royal Albert Docks!”Portfolio Manager for Aberdeen Standard Investments, Chris Wright, further comments:
