“Mall favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Joined a friend for dinner at Stir Crazy Cafe. We ordered edamame and chicken satay for appetizers and both were delicious. We particularly enjoyed the sauce and the Asian slaw that were served with the chicken. The entire chicken dish was wonderful. For an entre we both ordered Bangkok Noodles. The dish contained wheat noodles, vegetables, chicken and a red curry sauce. Mildly spicy it was good but I was a little disappointed because I'd confused it with another curry dish that use to be on the menu but was no longer being served. Decent Asian food. Service was fine and the wine very reasonably priced.

“CRAZY GOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

CRAZY GOOD

Our family group of seven chose Stir Crazy for dinner before a movie in the Northbrook Mall, Chicago. Because it was Saturday, we did have about a 25-minute wait for dinner, but it was so worth it! Our ages are from 11 to 82, and everyone loved it. Some of our group ordered entrees from the menu, and others chose to mix their own fresh Asian grill. If you prefer to make your own dish, you’re given a bowl in which you choose the meat and vegetables from the pots offered, and your dish is then grilled in the open kitchen for you and brought to your table. The young people especially liked to choose their own. Our table had everything from Japanese salad to Thai and Vietnamese dishes, Mongolian beef, and my excellent coconut shrimp. We were served quickly, and enjoyed the bustling atmosphere before going on to a movie in the mall.

“still excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I have been going here for years and they have the best stir fry ! I love the chicken satay app and the banana wonton dessert with the homemade carmel sauce it's amazing ! I love that you can make your own bowl of stir fry veggies and I love it when they bang the gong and set all woks ablaze !! Give it a try you won't be sorry.....100 times better than big bowl.
