Thai restaurant chain Rosa’s look to open Greenwich branch

An application is in to open a new branch of Thai restaurant chain Rosa’s at the former Saigon restaurant unit in Greenwich town centre.

The chain currently have 20 branches across the UK with most in London though also others in Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool. They begun at a branch in Spitalfields.

Planned frontage

According to the website a number of sites are still closed so the future is a little unknown with this plan. The site at 16 Nelson Road is not a great spot for outside seating.

Good luck to them. It’s far from easy right now for any business.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

    Another local restaurant bites the dust and is replaced by a chain. That said, my experience of Rosa’s in Spitalfields was a good one – though it was several years ago.

    As you say, it’s a brutal time for the restaurant industry, so best of luck to them.

    There are already a couple good Thai restaurants on Woolwich Road worth a visit.

    Rosa’s is a decent enough chain, shame it couldn’t be an independent though. On a side note – I was in Greenwich town centre yesterday and as has been well documented on this site the public realm is awful, the temporary barriers for pedestrians were only used by delivery bikes, the traffic was flying around like a race track, there was no room for outdoor dining and the whole place felt chaotic and slightly dangerous. Shame on Greenwich council for not giving this historic town centre the attention and quality it deserves.

      I don’t think pavement dining has been much of a thing in that part of Greenwich, although Cafe rouge had a roped off area and a bit of space in the Sunday market area (I think). There is too much tourist foot-fall in ‘historic’ Greenwich to have tables out on the pavement.
