Rosa’s Thai Cafe founders launch new brand

22nd April 2017


Saiphin and Alex Moore, the couple behind restaurant brand Rosa’s Thai Cafe and the recently opened Lao Café, have launched a new Thai food concept, Saiphin’s Thai Kitchen.   Positioned as a complementary brand to Rosa’s, the new  has opened its first site in London Fields, offering a delivery, takeaway and eat-in service.


Saiphin’s Thai Kitchen specialises in seasonal curries, salads, soups and noodle stir-fries made from scratch using fresh ingredients. The brand is currently self-financing but is exploring external funding sources. The London Fields site is expected to be the first of many, in London and beyond, with former investment banker Simon Penney set to lead the expansion.   Penny will lead the roll-out of new sites as well as the broader fundraising exercise.


The Moores opened their eighth Rosa’s Thai Café last month, with further sites scheduled for West Hampstead, Seven Dials and One Tower Bridge.
