What do you call that phony person who favours and compliments you in front other people, such as your friends or family, but in general they normally aren't that way to you? They could be aloof and grim even without the company of these people.

I'm guessing "two-faced" or "phony" would seem the appropriate terms here, but is there something more specific and/or more suited?
