#1 Greyhound Cafe

Postby PeterUK » Wed May 31, 2017 9:29 pm

I was delighted to note when travelling along Thepprasit the other day that Pattaya now has a branch of this successful chain. I've always enjoyed eating at the Bangkok branches. I tried it this evening and it didn't disappoint. Lots of seating, downstairs, upstairs,outside, in the familiar industrial-look black and grey decor. Not busy, mainly as in Bangkok a young well-heeled Thai crowd. There was the familiar menu of what I suppose would be called Thai and international fusion cuisine. Of particular interest to me, a decent range of unusual, imaginative vegetarian dishes. My starter was the garden vegetable soup which was good and tomatoey, followed by grilled vegetables with pesto sauce on fettuccini which was as tasty as when I have had it in Bangkok. I had the walnut blondie dessert from a wide, yummy-looking selection. With a soft drink the bill came to about 650B, which included 10% service charge and 7% VAT. The service was actually laid back to the point of somnolence but will probably improve over time. I felt sorry for a couple of scrawny, mangy street dogs which kept peering in enviously as well they might. It remains to be seen if the somewhat out of the way location (almost opposite the Colosseum) can be overcome, but overall I would rate this as a great addition to the Pattaya dining scene and a place that I will return to regularly.

Tried Greyhound last night. I thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, service and food. The prices were reasonable. It will become one of my regular restaurants.

I ate there a few nights ago and I agree, different and good food. The cuisine is Asia Fusion, but there is something for everybody (Thai, Western, some Vietnamese). The few negatives were a bit of a walk to the outside bathrooms and there are two floors so some might have a problem with stairs.

I went there with my bf before Kaan show. I liked the food and so did bf. It was quite busy Saturday night and the service was a bit slow. Also a lamb dish (from the menu) was not available. Retrospectively, I realized that I dined several years ago in Greyhound cafe in Siam Paragon quite a few times and I liked it then, though the menu was completely different. Unfortunately for us, Theprasit location is quite far away from our condo in Central Pattaya.

I don't use motorbike taxis but the baht buses do go up and down Thepprasit regularly. This would require a transfer at Thepprasit and Tappraya Rds. if you are coming from Pattaya.

This evening RichLB, another friend, and I tried it. All three of us enjoyed it and definitely concur with the comments already posted. We will certainly be going back. The service was not slow for us at all.

The only thing I did not like was car parking. You can't park a car anywhere near the restaurant unless you manage to find a place to park on the street. Even then, you're still not exactly close. I would never go there if it's raining. I don't understand it. There is plenty of space right in front of the restaurant, but no way to get there. It's either the street or the Kaan show parking lot - with all the tour buses and still quite a distance from the restaurant.

There is free shuttle between Kaan parking lot and the venue. I do not know though the schedule for the shuttle.

Have always enjoyed the Greyhound restaurants in Bangkok. Excellent selection of dishes of various cuisines, pleasant ambience and always efficient and often cute waiting staff. I love their Complicated Noodles - only complicated because you have to mix several ingredients yourself for each mouthful. Crispy fresh lettuce onto which you place an ultra thin layer of square flat noodle, a spoonful of minced pork, a dash of green chilli sauce and a sprig of coriander. Quite delicious! Their desserts are also worth waiting for.
