My main course was cold. Both noodles and stir fry. Had to be returned although they did reduce the price of it by 50%

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.

Food was really good and so was the ambience. Just they may have been short of staff it felt. Finding a parking is difficult

great attention was given to a guest with allergies, so that was a huge bonus. Food is great too, just wish the folk on the phones were more polite as the restaurant team are awesome.

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.

We were on a deal so the choices were limited for myself as a vegetarian but what I had was well presented and really tasty. I had the curry with tofu instead of chicken. The staff were great.

We went on a tuesday lunch and was the 1st in the restaurant, service and food where very good the only thing i would say is that the table tops have seen better days the faux leather tops significantly worn and a sticky feel to them

Absolutely beautiful restaurant. Authentic flavours and generous portions. The service was impeccable. It is considerably more expensive than most Thai restaurants but the quality was outstanding. Definitely worth the splurge, especially if you're staying at the Crazy Bear Hotel.......

A mixture of feelings. Some dishes like the vegetable tempura and the hot and sour soup were fantastic but other dishes such as the salt chilli squid and beef panang has major flaws. The squid was minuscule so the majority of what was savoured was just the batter. Made me feel like I paid £13 just for flour. The beef was extremely tough in the Panang, certainly not from a prime cut of beef. Whilst the sauce was tasty it’s very off putting when paying £20 for a dish you have to struggle with. Overall I would say it’s just not value for money.

This was a treat for my sons 16th birthday. Had a fab time. Food was lovely. Great service and fantastic value. Drinks a little pricey but decor and ambience was fantastic so you are paying for that as well. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Great ambience... and that’s where it stops
Horrible cocktails, I asked to change my drink I was told well that’s what you ordered, no offer to change. Chicken was dry, definitely reheated crisp on the edges and dry within. Service was rushed, we just got our starters and mains2 mins after each we was asked how was it ... wth let me eat in piece before the interrogation.
4 starters 2 mains 1 rice, 3 lowsy cocktails and a bottle of water £130 rip off.

I’d rather go to Thai square Windsor or Thai rack Gerrards cross. My food blog will be live on insta soon #hunger trips.

Ruined an anniversary event aswell

I spoke to the GM who asked how it was, there was no resolve. Considering ppl have had better experiences they didn’t do much to make up for the downfall... conclusion : avoid

I had a 2 person dinner at the Thai restaurant. The food, place and service was lovely. We ordered the 10 plate taster menu and everything was gorgeous with a nice variety. I was a little disappointed as I went for my mothers birthday and ordered a happy birthday dessert with a fudge cake however received a cupcake instead. One of my other desserts didn't come at all but was charged for.Also we were handed the bill without asking for it and asked to leave as another table was booked an hour and a half after we got there. The staff were hectic and kept mentioning that they had another table. This would have been fine had we at least been informed of it beforehand and it ruined our dinner a bit. However I would definitely go again I would just make sure to mention this in advance so not to encounter any surprises.

As soon as we sat down we were told we would need to hurry up and make our food choices as the kitchen was about to close, some of the food was good, but then again the seafood salad I had was swimming in what ever sauce they had put with it and you could taste nothing else but. As for value for money we were expecting a little more interesting for our money, I also find £5 for Thai crackers to expensive.

Having recently visited a Crazy Bear for a BBO PA network meeting, I wanted an opportunity to come and try the food. The Thai restaurant at Beaconsfield did not disappoint. I was looked after from the start (I need a gluten-free menu) and all the dishes were lovely and plentiful (we didn’t manage to finish everything). The service was excellent from us trying to check-in at the wrong building through to paying the bill. We didn’t stay for desert or coffee as by then I was thoroughly chilled by the air-conditioning. That won’t stop us going back though, I will just make sure I am wrapped up next time!

The lobster was way over cooked to a point of not edible, it was not eaten at all, the waiter came over asked if there was a problem I told him about the issue and he said I will sort it out, he pretended to go downstairs and do something, I thought he would either replace it or take it off the bill and none of that happened.... bit concerning if you want to do fine dining but don’t want to rectify your wrong.... but overall the other food was very authentic maybe a little too much spices for any human consumption but very authentically cooked

Young waitress with glasses I don’t think I caught her name made the experience. I asked on the off chance to do a birthday cake or something along those lines and she did and made it very special. You made my lovely girlfriends birthday even better, thank you.

My partner and I really enjoyed the evening. Was a slight hiccup with our order so the manager took a starter off of our bill to apologise but we ended up waiting 45 minutes for starters and over an hour for our mains due to their mix up. So probably would have expected a little more of an apology. However overall it was a really lovely evening, the food was great, and the waiting staff were very friendly. I think we just had an unlucky moment but would definitely go back.

We love eating at Thai restaurants, the quirky setting was interesting. The food itself was good but not outstanding. we had a 12 course set menu, this gave us a chance to taste a lot more variety than we would have tried otherwise. I would recommend this restaurant.

Food was fine, but nothing amazing I haven’t had in cheaper restaurants. Waiting staff were friendly but kept bringing wrong drink. It’s a shame the evening was slightly ruined as the waiting staff couldn’t wait to get us out the door whilst we were still eating dessert and finishing drinks despite the amount we had spent! Won’t rush to return.

We had the eight plate menu which was very tasty but portions were quite small. Jut enough to satisfy but would not be sufficient for large appetite. Restaurant was very quiet
