Greyhound Cafe is owned by the Arena Group, a Thai conglomerate with interests in fashion, food, and hospitality. The company was founded in 1980 by four friends who were passionate about fashion and living. In 1998, the company expanded into food with the opening of the first Greyhound Cafe in Bangkok.

Greyhound Cafe Philippines is a joint venture between the Arena Group and the Viva Group, a Filipino conglomerate with interests in media, entertainment, and real estate. The first Greyhound Cafe Philippines branch opened in SM Aura in 2022.

The Department of International Trade Promotion, Ministry of Commerce, the Royal Thai Government has launched the “Thai SELECT” program to certify and promote authentic Thai cuisine around the world.

It is a seal of approval granted to Thai restaurants (both overseas and local Thai restaurants that serve authentic Thai food) and processed Thai food products. 

The objective is to create the recognition of quality Thai restaurants and processed Thai food products as well as to encourage Thai restaurateurs and food producers to raise their quality while maintaining authenticity.

Nom Yen Granita (₱199)

Yes, experimenting with the pink Thai drink made from sala syrup and cold milk, and their granita versions are the best!

Thai Iced Coffee (₱280) with sweetened condensed milk

Dirty Thai milk tea is an acquired taste. Some people find it too sweet and overpowering, while others love the combination of the sweet tea and the strong coffee.


Overall, I love the street fashion-forward design of Greyhound Cafe and its modern Thai cuisine with a twist concept. I especially love the starters, such as the Greyhound Famous Fried Chicken Wings, Beef Massaman Curry with Roti, Weeping Tigers, and Salmon Sashimi in Spicy Hot Sauce. The classic Pad Thai and Tom Yum soup are also given a modern presentation and can be spicy. I also love the playful drinks, and my recent favorite was the Nom Yen Granita. They also have an extensive selection of Thai-inspired cakes for a sweet ending.
