The latest restaurant to reveal opening plans at Birmingham’s £700 million Paradise project has been unveiled.
London-based Rosa’s Thai Café is planning to launch its first Midlands venue later this year in Two Chamberlain Square, the second office building to complete at the city centre scheme.
This new venue will have 80 seats and be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
It will join two other restaurants at Paradise – Indian/Irani café Dishoom opened last spring in One Chamberlain Square while Mediterranean wine bar and restaurant Vinoteca will take space at Two Chamberlain Square.
The eight-storey office building is due to complete later this year and will also be home to law firms DLA Piper and Knights and financial services company Mazars.

Gavin Adair, chief executive of Rosa’s Thai Cafe, said: “For us, the offer at Paradise was too good an opportunity to miss and we are extremely happy with the setting of our new restaurant overlooking Centenary Way.
“We can’t wait to welcome Brummies into our new space in Two Chamberlain Square later this year.”
Rob Groves, regional director of Paradise’s development manager Argent, added: “Rosa’s is an outstanding new addition to Birmingham’s dining scene and we can’t wait to welcome the team to their new home in Two Chamberlain Square.
“We are very proud that Paradise is now bringing a broad range of great, new restaurants to the city.”
Paradise is a public/private partnership with Birmingham City Council and finance managed by Federated Hermes.
Leader Cllr Ian Ward said: “Paradise continues to go from strength to strength with further new office occupiers, retailers and jobs being attracted to the city centre.
“Our vision of a world-class, resilient economy spread across a number of key sectors, ensures the city is well placed to react positively to new opportunities in the months and years ahead.
“Another new restaurant name for Birmingham is always welcome and we continue to look forward to Paradise’s ongoing success story and its positive impact on both the city and the wider region.”
