Thai café concept Rosa’s has announced plans to open a new site in central London.

Co-founders Alex and Saiphin Moore have secured a 1,300 sq.ft site in Victoria, London.

The restaurant will open as Laos café later this year, a pop-up which will operate before the site undergoes renovations to become the seventh Rosa’s Thai Café.

Alex Moore said that the chain is looking to expand further next year.

“There is a growing appetite in the UK for more adventurous cuisines – with Southeast Asian cuisine, and Thai in particular, set to see the strongest growth in the branded restaurant market segment,” he said.

Rosa’s also announced that Ed Francis will be joining as the company’s operations manager and that Stephan Evans will become the brand’s property and development consultant.

“The new additions to the team will help us take the business through its next stage of growth which may even involve bringing an experienced industry investor on board to accelerate our rollout,” Moore said.

The first Rosa’s Café opened in Spitalfields in 2008, which was followed by Soho in 2010, Westfield in 2011, Carnaby Street in 2013 and Angel and Chelsea in 2014.
