Thai
Greyhound Café is Bangkok on the plates for you to explore and enjoy. We are Thai at heart but our restaurant is anything but traditional. Our recipes come from far and wide. Some are handed down from our grandmothers; some are inspired by our travel memories; and others are improvised from our midnight fridge raids.

So, we say to you. “Tarn Hai Aroi” (Bon Appetit)

Disappointing experience because the food quality wasn’t as expected since he had visited this restaurant before. One example was the lime that came with the pad Thai had already been used. Another example was the omelet came in a small plate and dripping in oil. Very pricey and low quality. Not worth it.

Everything tastes amazing up to Greyhound standard. Just want to point out to Bangkok foodies out here that only small parts of the menu are similar to bangkok’s branches. Here they focus more on Thai dishes, not pasta.

Lovely venue and lovely meal. Food came super fast, so we didn’t feel we could linger overly long even though the restaurant was not full.

Previously, yes I would recommend having been a few times before. However, i found the service a little disappointing this time. The lamb was also uncharacteristically tough

I went here when it first opened and thought it was great, the current experience was awful and feels like it has lost its way. The restaurant was 75% empty however our food still came out cold, was overcooked and generally felt poor quality. Will not be going again when there are so many other good options.

One of the waiters/hostess requested us to hurry up 45 mins into the reservation and said that the restaurant has more bookings as well and we had to hurry up. Terrible! As main course wasn’t even finished in the first 45 mins!

The food came suspiciously quickly, it was not fresh. Pad Thai felt like it was old and heated up in the microwave. Calamari was greasy and over battered. Crab and sweetcorn pops had very little crab inside, if any. Very disappointed as I had been wanting to try this place for ages and the menu looked great.

Very quiet for a Saturday night, we were the only people inside the restaurant. Food was average, ordered fried calamari that were very greasy, the pad Thai was average. The desert was good. Drinks were not amazing, my drink was too bitter but waiter said it was meant to taste this way and when I asked for another drink I was still charged for it. Overall a poor experience, will not go again.

An extremely attractive restaurant in Fitzrovia. It's one of those restaurants where you can simply turn up unannounced and get a table. The service was fuss free, the portions small, and the food was tasty. The green curry is probably better served with rice than noodles, but other than that, everything was good.

I have been to this restaurant twice and the food has always impressed me. It serves one of my favourite desserts and I love the style and twist on traditional Thai food. I would definitely recommend for an enjoyable meal with friends, family or loved ones.

Service was horrible. Food is typical British Thai food, nothing special about this place. The staffs are very rude and had no idea of what they are doing. Avoid at all costs.

The food was disappointing, and very average.
There are many places out there where you will find authentic Thai food, and better priced.
Very noisy restaurant, more like a bar.

Horrible service. It took 45 minutes for the staff to offer water and it was an empty restaurant. Also, the waitress spilled a drink on me and it took 15 minutes to refill the drink plus nothing was comped. Food was delicious though!

Greyhound cafe was very average. The decor and the Tuk Tuk outside is inviting, however, we had some difficulty with the menu as there were not many fish options and no flexibility to swap chicken for prawns etc. I had read mixed reviews before going but wanted to experience it myself. As I had gone there for a celebratory occasion, it was all quite underwhelming.

Great Thai food that is very authentic, although they also have some fusion dishes as well. I will be back. Great flavours and keeping to true 'Thai' level spicing.

It was my second time here and the food was as good as I remembered. However it seems that it was understaffed - it took us a long time to get the waiter’s attention and we had to ask for a couple of time for a water refill.

Good, cosy place with great food. We went on a quieter night so it wasn't too noisy but I can imagine the place getting noisy if it was crowded. Staff were attentive and friendly.

Great different food, was a little rushed with getting food out to us and staff could have been a bit more helpful with some of the menu options and stand out dishes
But food was good quality and ambiance was great!

Food was really nothing special. They switched up the lights at 10:55 while we were still eating mains, saying it was automatic and they close at 11

Great place, lovely food and a varied menu with something for everybody, reminded me of Bangkok.
Service was a bit unpolished, had to ask for cutlery, had to ask for napkins but hopefully this will become much improved.
Definitely going back as the food was really very good - and they also had my favourite fresh lime juice..... bonus!

Food was just ok for us. Maybe because we been to Greyhound in Bangkok and thought the taste would be similar.
