An award-winning restaurant chain will open its first Bristol site in a former post office, its owners have confirmed.

Rosa’s Thai started life as a cafe in London’s East End in 2008 and now has 36 restaurants around the UK, the closest one to Bristol being in Bath.

But now it will open its first Bristol restaurant in the empty building on the corner of Marsh Street and Baldwin Street, which for many years was a post office.

The restaurant has applied for a premises licence on the site at Alliance House. The proposed opening hours are from 8am to 12.30am Monday to Saturday and from 10am to midnight on Sunday.

Rosa’s Thai was founded by Saiphin Moore and her husband Alex, who sold their house in Hong Kong to fund the second Rosa’s in Soho in 2009. Since then, it has grown in to a UK-wide chain and there has even been a cookbook published.

The restaurant specialises in Thai classics and street food served in informal surroundings.
