Rosa’s Thai has launched a training kitchen at its Warren Street restaurant that offers diners a 50% discount on normal menu prices.

Open to candidates of all levels, Wok School provides 'aspiring chefs with all the skills needed to pursue a career behind a wok' at the national Thai restaurant group, with a guaranteed full-time chef role at Rosa’s Thai for each applicant upon completion of the course.

There are three programmes on offer of three, five and 10 days which candidates can take part in depending on their existing experience. All participants are paid £11.45 per hour (including service charge) for the duration of the course.

Classes are being taught by the group's most experienced wok chefs within a dedicated space on the lower ground floor of Rosa’s Thai’s Fitzrovia site. 

Open to diners Monday to Friday from 12-3pm, the menu changes daily according to the training programme and includes dishes such as pad Thai, red Thai curry and chilli and basil stir fry. 

Guests are encouraged to offer feedback to help all candidates gain the most they can from the scheme. Rosa’s Thai Warren Street is continuing to serve the full Rosa' Thai menu in the upstairs restaurant. 

“Rosa’s is dedicated to providing the best training and development to our teams to empower them to earn as they learn,” says Rosa’s Thai people director Gillian Lambden. 

“We are extremely excited about the launch of the Rosa’s Wok school as it provides opportunities for promotion for internal team members as well as our new recruits”.

Rosa’s Thai was founded in Spitalfields in 2008 by Alex and Saiphin Moore and now operates 25 restaurants in London, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester, with launches in York and Cardiff expected early this year.
