Greyhound Cafe

Thai Restaurant in Fitzrovia

Hailing from Bangkok, Greyhound Cafe thai restaurant in Fitzrovia has opened its doors serving up authentic food with a Bangkok twist.

The Mood

Everything about this restaurant oozes cool. From the fairy light filled terrace area to the large open plan restaurant with origami hanging from the ceiling it is a very trendy place and effortlessly so. Even their menus are cool with pictures printed throughout making it look like a magazine. The staff are friendly and helpful and we had good service during our visit.

The Food

We started with the Three-Region Khao Tung: puffed rice crackers with beef massamun, pork prik ong and mushroom larb and the Sweet Corn Pops: Bite-sized crunchy sweet corn balls. The corn pops were really tasty – little deep fried corn balls with a spicy sweet chilli sauce. The khao tung was absolutely amazing and the three dishes were full of flavour and spice – a definite favourite.

For our mains we had the Esarn Chicken: half chicken rubbed with turmeric and grilled until juicy. Served with som-tum, jaew sauce, Thai sweet chilli sauce and healthy sticky riceberry. The flavours in this dish were great, the rice was sticky and the sweet chilli had a big kick to it. The chicken was a little dry but because of the sauces it wasn’t particularly noticeable. We also had the Mixed Mushrooms Pad Thai which was really tasty, with fried noodles loads of mushrooms and a great chilli kick running through = huge portion as well!

Dessert Time

To finish we had the Young Coconut Sherbet: homemade from the young coconut flesh and coconut cream and the Sago Anchan: Tapioca pearls cooked in butterfly pea flower infused juice topped with coconut cream, served with young coconut sherbert. Both desserts were very tasty, especially the coconut sherbet it was refreshing and full of fleshy chunks of coconut. The sago anchan was tasty and had a rice pudding type feel to it.

The Drinks

A lot of the cocktails at Greyhound are Mekhong based (a Thai Whiskey) and pack a punch! We tried the Chaiyo: gin, prosecco, lime, sugar, Thai basil, elderflower, cucumber which was fresh and zesty and very strong! We also had the Soi Cowboy Girl: gin, Campari, lemon, sugar,passionfruit syrup and Thai basil which was  great.

In Summary

The Greyhound Cafe is an attractive thai restaurant in Fitzrovia with a busy and bustling atmosphere and good food. It is not the traditional Thai you might be used to because of the Bangkok influence so good to try out as something new (and cool!)
