Thai restaurant group Rosa’s Thai Cafe is to open its second location outside of London following the launch of its Liverpool restaurant in February.

The group, founded by Thai Chef Saiphin Moore and husband Alex in 2007, will open in Trinity Leeds shopping centre on 4 May. It will be its 17th ​Rosa restaurant.

The 140-cover site includes seating for 60 customers inside and 80 outside, with the menu featuring red curry with chicken and pineapple (£11.25); spicy grilled steak salad (£11.95); pad Thai (from £7.95); and stir-fried aubergine (£8.75).

The northern expansion of the brand has been driven by managing director Gavin Adair, who secured the Leeds site last year.

“Leeds is the next step in building out our cluster of sites in the northwest and it’s a city I know and love since starting my career here some 25 years ago,” says Adair.

“Its foodie credentials mean it has a range of interesting independent businesses through to some of the best offer brands and we think our small group mentality, and more importantly small group quality, will sit squarely in the middle.”

Last year the group sold a majority stake in its business to private equity firm TriSpan, after being ranked as one of the top three fastest growing restaurant chains in the MCA/AlixPartners Growth Company Index 2017.
