I heard about this restaurant and the asian style food sounded unusual. Lucky to find a special offer of 12 courses with a glass of champagne. The staff were charming and brought different dishes after finished previous group. Each dish was delicious. Always ready to try something new!

I was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant as the menu looked amazing. On arrival the hostesses greeting us were miserable and very unhelpful- they couldn't find our reservation and made us wait outside while we rang our friends to find they were already sat down. Food was ok but nothing special. Waiters and waitresses barely said one word... More

Amazing food, luxuriously decorated, the toilets were hidden behind a secret wall you push to get in! Staff were very attentive and friendly , some tables are very close and you are almost sitting touching the people next to you, we had a set menu and there was so many different dishes being brought to us all extremely delicious, definitely...

Managed to get a table for a reasonable time ! It's not a cheap place but the food was good and we didn't leave hungry . Had the 10 plate menu which was ample for 4 of us . Enjoyed a cocktail and the ambiance of the restaurant . The loo was an experience in itself .

I was really looking forward to my meal at the Crazy Bear. I'd heard the hotels were amazing and the pictures looked great. Unfortunately I was very disappointed as soon as I arrived. The cocktails were such a waste of money with most of the glass filled with ice and no drink inside. The waitresses just hang around chatting and... More

Went with a friend for dinner after a show. We had lobster & chateaubriand, both cooked beautifully. I opted for Edamme beans & seaweed to start and they were really nice too! Dessert was divine, Lemongrass pannacotta! Even the ladies was unique, when I eventually found it!!! Great service, staff were friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit. We shall... More

Down to London and was treated to Crazy Bear, Fitzrovia - Signature Twelve Plates Tasting Menu ... £62.50 for two, so very reasonable indeed. The restaurant was perhaps a little dark, so difficult to read the menu. We got a cocktail in a half pint jug, complimentary with the meal. Nice touch, but the waiter couldn't tell us what was...
