Cafés and restaurants come in and out of fashion. But at our urban hangout Greyhound café you’ll always be in vogue because Greyhound cafés first came into existence from a fashion label in Bangkok. When you dine in our venues, you’ll find that everything around you – from the fresh food to the creative décor, has been carefully styled.
Of course, we make sure that the Thai-influenced menus, the service and the ambience are always top-notch, but never have we lost sight of our first love: art. We’ve got creativity from wall-to-wall and art inspires everything that we do, including our food.
We don’t cook our food, we create it. At Greyhound café we serve simple foods with a twist: traditional and modern cooking techniques mingle; elements of urban street food and refined haute cuisine go side by side; ingredients from local and international culture are fused together to invent something blissful. With this many contrasts, it’s no wonder that our fusion food has been such a hit.
If you drop in for our renowned brunch, you’ll be plated a mouthwatering choice of fusion cuisine options – from Bacon and Egg in the Hole (bacon bits with eggs cooked in Thai hot tray, served with baguette) to Noodles with Thai Braised Beef soup.
Traditional art galleries have great looking artwork for your eyes. But the dishes in Greyhound café stimulate all the senses. The food is made to look great, smells incredible and tastes sensational, all because of the personal touch from our creative chefs. Sounds enticing, doesn’t it?
Art should be interactive. Dining with us is an inter-art-ive experience. Whether you’re in search of a muse or amusement, drop into one of our six branches for a kaleidoscope for the senses and a collide-o-scope where fashion meets food, art creates atmosphere and Asian and European cuisines come together in a happy union. We promise to brighten up your day in the most creative way.

ART HK 11 or Hong Kong Art Fair 2011 is set to take place on May 26 to 29, 2011 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center and who else to provide quality social media promotional strategies but PRDA or Prosperity Research Digital Agency, one of Hong Kong’s most established social media companies. With more than 250 successful campaigns under its belt in just a span of 5 years, PRDA’s involvement in this year’s ART HK 11 is definitely seen as a game changer — PRDA’s social media magic will not only draw more visitors to the fair but will increase brand recall and buzz for the much-awaited Hong Kong Art Fair 2011.
“We’re excited to be a part of ART HK 11. We think it’s an event that does not only showcase modern and contemporary arts but more importantly, gives highlight to the passion, sheer talent and skill of artists – from the modern masters to promising contemporary artists,” said Douglas White, head of PRDA.
And showcase it does! According to the organizers, ART HK 11 will present works from modern masters such as Picasso to important contemporary artists such as Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst. Because of this, the ART HK event, which is organized by Asian Art Fairs Ltd, is truly one of the most anticipated in the international arts calendar.
From May 26 to 29, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center will be home to 260 galleries from 38 countries around the world. The price tags of the paintings will range from HK $8,000 to as much as HK $80 Million.
Among the activities during the fair are the “Art Futures” section (where visitors can find works of emerging artists) and the “Asia One” section (where visitors can find solo exhibitions by Asian artists).
Dance as exercise is becoming hugely popular and Master Ram sets the pace. A lifetime of dance and martial arts has made him fast and flexible. He uses his talents to design a range of classes from Bollywood to Freestyle. Having started teaching at 15 he is recognized as one of the youngest certified dance instructors.
RY: As the Dance Director, you customize a wide range of classes–Bollywood, Freestyle, bellydancing specifically for Planet Yoga. What are you working on at the moment?
Ram: Right now, I am preparing for the new Master Classes at Planet Yoga. We are very lucky to have a lot of dedicated and eager dancers at Planet Yoga so these sessions are designed with them in mind. The choreography is meant for intermediate and advanced dancers who are looking for something a little more challenging.
RY: You are one of the youngest certified dance instructors in India. How did you become a dance instructor? Were you always a good dancer?
Ram: I was always very athletic as a kid–I studied Martial Arts for 7 years and became a Black Belt. I began training in dance at a very young age and started teaching classes when I was 15.
RY: Who has inspired you most as a dancer?
Ram: My biggest idol, without a doubt, is Michael Jackson. Not just for his techniques but his innovation, his star quality and charisma. In my profession, it is easy to imitate others’ styles and techniques. It is important for me to create original choreography so that my students are learning something new and exciting, not something they have already seen somewhere else.

RY: Some of these classes may sound a little intimidating –Bhangra Funk, Modern Belly Dancing. For someone who has little or no experience dancing how would you encourage them?
Ram: I always teach each of my classes with one goal in mind, and that is to help my students build self-confidence, have fun and raise their energy level. Some of the classes are more challenging than others, but ultimately, it is not about learning specific techniques or fancy moves, I want them to feel good about their bodies and health.
RY: Planet Yoga is known for having instructors that have real talent and great experience. What does real yoga mean to you?
Ram: For each of my classes, I try to create a unique experience. I listen to my students and give them lots of feedback. It is important for me that anyone who comes into my class feels that they are able to take with them something that is worthwhile. Real yoga for me is creating a personal experience for each of my students.
