We chose the crazy bear for our daughters 16th birthday having visited previously and weren't disappointed! We dined from the classic 12 course taster menu. We dined at 5:30 and knew when booking that the table needed to be returned by 7:30, which was fine with us as we were visiting the theatre. The courses arrived at a steady pace and we didn't feel rushed at all service was attentive without being intrusive and the food was sublime and couldn't be faulted.

We booked the £30 special tasting menu for a lunch time treat. Excellent value for money. the food was on good but not exceptional. The service was fantastic and attentive without being overpowering. Crazy Bear is a funky place and I look forward to going back for a more relaxed evening meal.

The food, service and value for money were excellent. However I must say it the most uncomfortable we have ever been when eating in a restaurant. As with all asian restaurants you receive the food several plates at a time to share. The table was round, very small and had a permanently fixed table lamp in the middle of it. This made it very difficult to put the food on the table and once it was there you were fighting your way around this table lamp to try and get to it. Also the seat was a long padded bench seat, which up against a round table meant that you could not sit comfortably to eat.

We spoke to the couple next to us who felt the same.

I discussed this with Tom, the Manager, who was very apologetic but said nothing could be done.

I would love to go to this restaurant again but unless they resolve this problem by having square table for 2 and removing the table lamps we will not be going back.

It was billed as a 12 plate tasting menu. There were two meat eaters and one vegetarian and the only way we could have the tasting menu was to order an extra vegetarian - no flexibility given when I phoned. Small things like this make all the difference because some of the dishes overlapped and it's not a big deal to manage. I'm a caterer and know this could be easy to sort. One of the meat plates was prawn crackers!

Glass noodle rolls were the tastiest. Should have provided chilli sauce and soy sauce. Veg dumplings all taste free. Edamame - Giraffe do an excellent version you should look up Crazy Bear and not provide bland like this. Crispy seaweed was bordering on burnt.

The best thing about this place is the loo which is difficult to work out due to it's disguise in the wall and inside where it's full of mirrored tiles and confusing. What a trip!
