Greyhound Cafe Fitzrovia

There are apparently 17 of these joints dotted across Asia. Trendy high fashion joints, it is reported. Many other reviews say that if you can overlook they fashionistaness of the restaurant then you’ll enjoy it. Weirdly though, when I visited Greyhound Cafe with a friend it didn’t seem overly fashionable or particularly note worthy in any way. I’m terms of decor and music it’s ok, there’s a large outdoor space with some hanging chairs and lots of flowers but it didn’t seem to be for people who were eating, it seemed like the sort of place people go for a drink after work.

A lot of people have remarked upon the menu because it is full of food photography of all the dishes but tbh this is actually quite helpful and fairly tastefully done. The danger is though, that the restaurant would rather be big on Instagram than serve delicious food. There are some serious bangers on the menu but some other items miss the mark, despite being very photogenic.

I visited Greyhound sans baby but there’s plenty of space as well as our door seating so you’ll be safe with a buggy, it isn’t the kind of restaurant that is encouraging families but it’s loud enough which always helps.

What’s good? The steak satay, the pad Thai, anything that has a warning on it in terms of spiceiness. I was a bit underwhelmed by the desserts.

Kid friendly? Ish. It’s workable. Any child will eat the happy toast.
