Great price for the food and service you get! Try the Thai style spagatti, spicy pesto seafood pasta and the complicate noodle set..unforgettable taste and flavor! The unique juice menu, my favor is pineapple/ grapefruit juice cocktail, so refreshing, goes extremely well with the meal!

This is the best place to grab a bite to eat when you're at Emporium Mall (Phrom Phong Station - BTS Station). Greyhound Cafe is a chain of restaurants that can be found at major locations (Paragon Mall, J Avenue). You come here for the food and not service. Service at this location is OK at best.

The menu features both Thai and Western food and is extensive. On the menu there are photos of some of the featured dishes to entice you. The Thai food offered here is more Thai fusion as suppose to authentic Thai food however the combination featured at Greyhound works (I have been to some fusion restaurants where the combination of tastes just fails).

One of their signature dish is "Complicated Noodle" which is great as a dish to share. This dish features fresh rice noodle sheets and fresh lettuce leaves that comes separately accompanied by minced pork sauce and chilli sauce. You put the minced pork sauce on either the lettuce leave or rice noodle sheet and roll it up and eat it. It is a little messy but a delicious dish. Another signature dish of the restaurant is the chicken wings. I don't know what is the secret sauce they marinate the chicken wings in but it hit the spot. While the name of this dish does not sound appetizing "spaghetti with anchovy" do not let it put you off. If you're looking for something different this is a yummy pasta dish.

Do leave room for dessert as they do have some great desserts here - both Thai and Western. For Thai dessert you cannot go wrong with their coconut ice cream. It taste wonderfully of coconut. For Western dessert I would recommend the lemon tart (if it is in season) or the banana chocolate crepe cake. This dessert features crepes layered with banana and chocolate sauce.

For those that love non alcoholic drinks Greyhound offers a large selection to choose from. For a refreshing drink I love the lychee ice which is lychee juice that has been crushed with ice. A great thirst quencher.

Looks nice, taste okay but staff is hurry to close the place and get out. We got in at 21:05, the kitchen closes at 21:30 but the staff made us feel like if we had nothing to do here at this time. We fanaly could order 2 pastas dishes and felt like we would better hurry up to finish having diner. Maybe a good place for lunch.

We went to Greyhound, actually the kitchen is good and invents new dishes but the staff is spoiled but too many tourists and well to do Thai that frequent this restaurant a lot. It is really worth while dining in this restaurant when you are bored with the Thia street food, but do not expect real Thai food. The well to do Thai visit this restaurant, we think, to have the experience to eat food from abroad in the Thai way.

For us a lunch-time experience rather than evening. Very conveniently located in the Emporium shopping centre it seems to be pretty busy all the time with locals, both Thai and Chinese and visitors from Europe and Asia. We hadn't booked but knew we would probably have to wait for a table. We were told 10-15 minutes so we went off to do some shopping in the meantime. We sat outside overlooking the lower level. The menu is vast and reflects different Asian cooking and has pictures which is helpful for visitors. Service was very good whilst everything was freshly cooked. Not a fine dining experience but certainly worth a visit.
