I felt like I was being rushed by the staff to leave. They kept on reminding me that I had to clear the table by 8pm. When I am spending so much money for a service I don’t expect to feel rushed. There is no vegan menu also which makes it difficult to know what I can eat

The Thai restaurant looks great and impression lux. The food was good and the service prompt. The big draw back was the management's inability to control the behaviour of a rowdy table of six girls, with no apparent understanding of how to behave in a restaurant. The shouting, loud and exaggerated hiccupping (!) and general escalating noise coming from their table was uncouth and totally off-putting. The Crazy Bear attracts a glitzed-up clientele and there's nothing wrong with feeling in 'party mode', Unfortunately, this particular group of un-lovies showed zero consideration for other diners and spoilt what would otherwise have been an enjoyable evening. The Assistant Manager, in charge that night, would have to have been be both deaf and blind not to notice the effect and disturbance. We complained to the waiter explaining our early departure was the unacceptable noise (he apologised but clearly felt he couldn't do much). On leaving we spoke to the Assistant Manager (who had apparently been informed of our comments before by the waiter), his concern was unconvincing to say the least! Maybe we were unlucky but with such lack lustre, disinterested management it's not somewhere we could recommend.

We had the set menu with a glass of champagne. The champagne was good quality, the food was excellent and plentiful, the atmosphere was lovely and good for friends, couples or families. The background environment is gentle and there was a great soundtrack playing and the staff were efficient and friendly. I was there with my friend for her birthday and we had a lovely time.

An amazing restaurant with amazing staff.... Looked after my son who has a severe nut allergy and went through all the recommended dishes that were safe to have. Would highly recommend this restaurant.... Food is very good and it's the cocktails (non alcoholic ones too!) that will bump up your bill so if you are on a budget get a bottle of wine to share....

The Restaurant was far smaller than expected, but very well decorated and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and the food was delicious and far better value for money than imagined - we ordered and had our food within the space of 5/10 minutes.

The only downsides were that the restaurant was very loud and that the two different restaurants of Beaconsfield, English and Thai, are in two different buildings, so if it's raining, make sure you bring an umbrella to walk between the two.

Anniversary Dinner. Catered for our Lactose intolerance really well (as one would assume with Thai food)
Menu options are vast but really mouthwatering, we were almost tempted by a 10course tasting menu but opted for more moderate dish counts.
Food was delicious, ate beyond full.

Service was shocking. Booked the meal for my parents 30 year anniversary and we were very disappointed with the lack of attentiveness from a staff. We had to wait half hour for an ice cream we ordered for a toddler and in the end had to reorder it because the staff we had ordered it through had just gone home.

The food was overpriced and not very flavoursome, the quality was not very good. The service was excellent.
The music was too loud to have a conversation.
Overall I would go again and wouldn’t recommend.

Excellent food.

We started with the Crispy Soft Crabs and the Lobster Spring Rolls. Both delicious. For the main course we had the Sirloin Beef stir fry and the Duck and shared a portion of Steamed Rice. All very good !!

So cleverly and fabulously executed in terms of location feeling discreet, furnishings plush and quirky and food so heavenly. I felt service needed to be sharper and more welcoming especially by the two female waitresses who came to our table. Can’t wait to come again!

So I booked this restaurant for my wife's birthday as we had often heard about the place and thought we should try it. When my wife found out where we were going she was excited. I had heard it was quite expensive but was hoping the food would reflect that.
we arrived at 1900hrs just in time for our booking (firstly the Crazy bear is very poorly signposted) we were taken to our table by the duty manager and sat down. We had already decided to have their 12 plate signature Thai sharing menu with a glass of champagne. the waitress came over and took our order and then for the next 45mins we literally had plates thrown at us and just as you were taking your last mouthful they whisked the plate away and brought t the next, this happened for each course and to top it off the food was awful. I have eaten in many a Thai restaurant and I feel I would have got better food form my local Thai takeaway.
we were then given the bill straight away so I paid and left and were out of the restaurant by 2000hrs. I was annoyed as this was supposed to be a nice romantic meal for my wife's birthday (which they knew).
so basically my view is this restaurant is over priced for the quality of food you receive and they give impression that you need to get in and out as quick as you can so they can get another customer in
wont ever go back here again

The restaurant environment was quirky albeit a little tired looking. Ambiance was good although it was a quiet time of the day and week.
Staff were polite but limited interaction
Food was not up to standard given prices. Our mains was a lamb dish which when presented was 2 lamb chops in a curry sauce. The chops were fatty and inedible.
Overall we were not that impressed with our experience given reviews

The food was good, the decor was amazing, and the waiters were very attentive. However the music was very loud, the restaurant was very dark, and the food was very overpriced! A few people around us were using the torches on their phones to read the menu and I found myself shouting at my partner so he could hear me. And for the amount we paid (e.g. £10 for a side dish), we didn't get a lot of food for our money (this side was 6 stalks of asparagus). Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend going to see what it's like. But don't expect good value for money or a nice quiet evening!

We ordered 12 Thai signature menu for 4 people but we were served for 2 people. We were so embarrassed to ask , why?
We had to ask for next dish every single time, the staff was not attentive.

Ordered the Signature sharing 12 Course Menu. Only 8 dishes came out and none of the substitutes I asked for. Plus still had to pay full price. Not impressed in the slightest nor offered any comps on future dining.

We went at lunch time and ate from the 12 place set menu. The food was an absolute delight. The cocktails were also excellent. Very impressed with the cuisine. We will be eating there again.

The one thing that come be improved is the signage in the street which can best be described as 'stealth'. I walked past the entrance twice without realising it and finally had to go into the Crazy Bear to get directions !

Lovely friendly staff and good service.
Had the Thai menu...well presented but a bit disappointed with the starters as they didn’t taste so great.
Mains were better.

Preference is for the Stadhampton restaurant, as the ambience and food was a lot better!!

Underwhelming experience, service was slow even though there were only 3 tables occupied. Black cod tasted like it’d come out of a microwave, starter portions were minuscule and not up to standard. Replacement seabass was fresh but slightly over cooked and bland, and worse, bits of scales in my plate.
Overall unimpressed, only realised I’d paid the service charge when I’d left otherwise I wouldn’t have paid £22 for the service I got.
Will stick the CB English.

Only concern was that the offer (£33 for 3 courses + Champagne) was billed ina strange way and thus not clear at the end of the meal. But it was correct.

Otherwise very good - food at normal high standard and the palace, whilst a little whacky is very nice.
