Had a lovely evening - great ambience and food and service was friendly and attentive without being overpowering. It was my birthday and they even gave me a Happy Birthday dessert for free.

Came here for my birthday meal with my partner. The ambiance in the restaurant is fantastic as is the general vibe. I had asked for a quiet table as I wanted a more private dinner and that is the only real negative about this restaurant. The tables are far too cramped and we were squeezed next to other people so this place has less of the intimate feel. On top of this the restaurant was busy as it was a Saturday night and I don't think the air conditioning was working as everyone was boiling hot. Having said all that, the positives far outweigh the negatives with this place. The service is amazing and staff are very helpful/informative. This is the best Thai food I have ever had and their choice of seasonings was perfect. They have a lovely cocktail bar downstairs which we enjoyed a few drinks at after our meal. I would definitely recommend eating here on a special occasion as the place oozes class. If they can sort the spacing between tables this place would be perfect.

Enjoyed our meal. Had a wide selection of starters - duck spring rolls outstanding - and mains. Service was good and food was all excellent. Only quibble was that for a premium restaurant the tables were tight and we really felt little crammed in. Otherwise great experience and would certainly return, albeit try and find a less cramped table next time!

Having previously visited I was looking forward to dining here with a friend. The restaurant I feel was looking a little tired and in need of some attention.
The service was unsatisfactory despite the time only being 5.30pm. It took more than 30 minutes for someone to take a drinks order, despite staff being plentiful. The drinks then sat in the bar for a further 10 minutes. There was discrepancy about the express menu which was apparently available until 6pm as stated on the website but upon requesting to look at this menu we were told twice that it wasn’t available even though our booking was at 5.30. We eventually managed to order from the express menu as we were wanting a quick meal. The food was delicious, a real shame about the service.

So we were sat near the upstairs bar facing a stuffed giraffe. Not the best view as you get a full view of the giraffes backside ...so ask for a table at the back when.you book. Saying that they ignored my request for a quiet table! The waiter was a bit rude when we asked for things being very abrupt and telling us to wait, not very attentive towards our table forcing us to ask other members of staff for drinks etc. Definetly not worth the 13.5% service charge. The saving grace for this place is the food being really tasty and well made. Also the cocktails are nice but pricey. This won't be a regular place for us as a result.

Lovely food although considered it very expensive for what you got. The lamb chop massaman was a little tough. Great service. We were seated close to the entrance of the restaurant and were packed in with other tables with little room to get in and out. I would come again but probably not in a hurry.

Amazing food, with amazing service at a really good price.

There is a huge variety of Asian food to choose from. We went for a ten plate set menu which gives quite a good breadth of choice without the bother of having to think too much.

We will definitely go back.

I booked a table at crazy bear for my birthday as I’ve heard amazing things and it’s safe to say I was very very disappointed. The service was poor. We had to ask for our drinks order to be taken, our starter, our main and desert (that was pre booked by my friends for my birthday.) our main took 1hr40 mins which is crazy to me as we ordered Thai curries and noodle dishes which should not take that long. The food was good but not hot, more like it had been sat there a while and the noodles were all congealed together too. I never usually complain or write negative reviews however I am so disappointed and unhappy with this restaurant. My friends ordered a birthday brownie for me as a surprise but the waiter came over with dessert menus and asked me to pick another one as they were out of brownie and ruined the whole surprise. I didn’t want to make a fuss at the restaurant as I didn’t want to ruin my birthday but I am so dissapointed.

The food was nice and the staff friendly but no more so than any other establishment.
The barman most certainly knows his stuff when it comes to cocktails.

The restaurant as a whole is quirky and somewhere different to go.
As a chain Crazy Bear has utterly disappointed me.

Being in a hurry to leave and catch our train, I nipped to the front and paid the bill. Thinking to myself that is was rather expensive for what we had ordered.
Later when i reviewed the receipt a "gratuity" of 13.5% was added without the waiter mentioning it at all.
Yes, I did then go to the restaurant's website and look through the Ts&Cs to see that this was automatically done.
Its a damn cheek when there are only 2 people dining. I would have no issue if there were 6+ but to add there own EXTRA £20 to my bill!?! No one should have to go through a 30 min read of terms and conditions when going out to eat somewhere. its downright rude and a liberty that has now cost you customers.

No thank you, we will find somewhere else in future.

Food is always very good however the service was poor. 15 mins to receive our wine and over 25 mins to receive our mains which also came with the second half of our starters. Not the best experience. Cocktail bar downstairs, excellent service and a great range of choices.

Not especially impressive food, service or ambience considering the cost. We didn't feel the food was much more impressive than any another high street chain. Service wasn't as attentive as you might expect, waiting ages to order drinks and at no point were we asked how things were, even when leaving. I would recommend many other venues ahead of Crazy Bear.

Worst experience ever! The lobster was so tough I could have thrown it at the wall and it would have come back and knocked me out ! To top it off the prawns was hard and tough. Everything lacked seasoning. The noodles were soggy and overly sweet. A total waste of money and the food took forever a total disappointment

Amazing food but service a little slow. Had the 3 course deal which was amazing but it took 2.5 hours in total. Couldn't fault the food, we left satisfied and very full! A really nice bar area downstairs with a DJ, a shame it was empty. Quite a hidden gem really.

This was the first time my husband and I have eaten at Crazy Bear for a few years. The food and cocktails were as excellent as we remembered. Truly delicious. However we did notice a real change in atmosphere / clientele. The restaurant was dominated by several larger groups of women dressed for clubbing. Presumably this a Saturday night phenomenon, but it did rather detract from the decadent, romantic meal experience we expected. There was also a slight feel of crowding and overbooking with a number of the tables around us being moved to the bar for dessert to make room for the next guests. I disapprove of double booking tables with such small intervals. Again, I guess it’s a Saturday night issue. We would return (the food/drinks are great), but I would be very wary of booking at the weekend for date night.
