    Amazing food and amazing service from our South African waiter! Overall a fantastic evening... and the toilets are pretty cool too (once you find them!)

    They say first impressions count and Crazy Bear does not disappoint, with the brightly lit exterior like Harrods at Christmas to the welcome at the front desk.
    We were a party of three, our coats had been taken in exchange for a numbered card and were shown to our table immediately. We had chosen the 10 plate premium taster menu which was fantastic value as on offer at half price. A small request had been made for a dairy free option and the waiting staff were amazing at explaining what they could do to accommodate. With the Drinks order taken the food started to arrive, a bit to fast at first and we though we would not be able to keep up, however they brought out the starters and then gave us a break before the mains course dishes came out. The mixed dim sum on the starters were excellent, we could have just had more of them and been happy.
    The portion sizes were very generous for the main course dishes and the chicken in the curry was so soft and tender the knife just glided through it without effort. The pad thai was a bit dry but it still tasted great.
    Overall the experience and food was fantastic and I would definitely go back if there was another offer on.
    If you go looking for the toilets good luck finding them the first time. I was glad to have read previous reviews which showed the way although I still had to ask as I could not find the door. (its not labelled)

    If I was to make one complaint it would be that the wine we had ordered was not kept on the table but the waiters kept it out back and would come and fill our glasses when they got low. I cannot be sure that we actually finished the entire bottle.

    Loved the downstairs bar and the loo is well worth inspection if you can find the way in! The 10 course tasting menu for lunch was great value, varied, tasty, well presented and served. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we will all return at some stage. The Crazy Bear would make a great venue for a group of 8 or so for an evening out.

    Lovely place, great bar and polite staff. Food was really very nice, especially the tasting menu. Unfortunately the green chicken curry was a bit salty.

    Went for the special offer of the tasting menu. Starters were of reasonable quality, though the dim sum were rather heavy. The main courses, with the exception of the pak choy, were all pretty awful. The chicken appeared to have been added to the green curry just before coming to the table, the pad thai with prawns was tasteless and the duck in the crispy duck salad was stringy and dry. Far too much of everything and we only ate about one third of the mains. Pudding: dull cheesecake with an inappropriately matched sorbet, although the latter was OK in its own right.

    We dined on a Bookatable set menu deal and it was a Wednesday so there was also half price Champagne on offer. The bar and restaurant are beautiful, quite lavish and with a real attention to detail. It took a little while to get served in the bar, maybe because we were tucked away in an extremely comfortable booth. The service was very friendly though and we were taken up to our table promptly at our booking time. The waitress was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the meal.
    The food was well prepared, with a really good balance of flavours and textures and we enjoyed every dish. The dim sum were outstanding but all of the dishes were delicious.
    I didn't think we would manage dessert but we did and the mojito cheesecake came with a really refreshing sorbet.

    We loved every minute of our time at Crazy Bear. It started with the very friendly service from the girl who greeted us at the door, then the exquisite food and finally the amazing downstairs bar and funky bathrooms (which is not something I normally comment on). We had the 10 course star deal and were pleasantly surprised at the size of the meal - we had been expecting 10 tiny bite sized meals, but instead they served normal sized mains and a great selection of entrées. I would happily head back there for another meal.
