“NEVER AGAIN!!!!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

The venue is dated, shabby and in need of a good clean and we had our bags search before going in. The tables were crammed together with no room to move, getting to the toilets was a real problem and then they were filthy! The food was really bad, the starters all tasted the same, like rubber and washing up liquid. The main courses were a little better but the meat which was supposed to be pork was grey, everything was floating in grease and the rice was just one solid lump. The noise was so loud even the staff were complaining! The staff however, were very friendly and helpful.

“Wendy in all her finery! Bravo! Lots of fun”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

If you have a Hen Night, works party or just want a hilarious local night out then Crazy Wendy's is a really good shout. It's a local Thai restaurant with 'entertainment'. Wendy is superbly amusing, singing her (or his, not quite sure even though i've been up close) way around the restaurant, handing out her microphone for you to join in with the odd chorus. Essentially this is a well done sit down (or stand on your chair) karaoke meal. Sit back, relax, be game for a laugh and enjoy Wendy in all her finery! Food is also okay!

“great deal Sunday time buffet”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

We went here for the lunch time buffet and have been a few times in the past. They do not offer a traditional buffet in that is food is out and you help yourself instead you can choose form a limited menu of starters and main courses.
There was soup and 4 other starts on offer, there was no choice of soup and only my husband had the hot and sour soup, this was fresh, light and spicy.
For the starters we enjoyed a mixture of the Thai pork spicy salad, prawn toast, tempura vegetables and spring rolls. The pork salad is delicious, fresh and full of flavour. The other items were all freshly cooked, crisp and enjoyable.
There was a choice of 8 main courses for which we choose the sweet and sour pork stir fry which had just the right balance of sweet and sour, fresh and nice not to be covered in a heavy batter. We also choose the squid stir fry, sweet chili chicken and chicken green curry. All these dishes were well cooked with enough to all share a little of. Dishes ere served with a choice of noodles, boiled or egg friend rice. The egg friend rice was light and fluffy and the noodles were fresh and tasty.
For a price of 36.95 for adults and half price for children it well worth the price. It was sad we were the only people in the restaurant as the service was good and the food was all fresh and very tasty.
Well worth a visit for cheap and delicious Sunday lunch with a difference.

“not a restaurant……an experience :)”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Firstly the food is not that great. The atmosphere was excellent. The best work night out venue ever if you are all drinking. loads of fun. Standing on chairs and singing. If you are NOT drinking to quote my colleague " it was way too loud, people squeezed in on tables everywhere. Really tight for space. Massive queue for ladies loo's."
It was a laugh.
Drinks were £3.50 for a bottle of Chang. Good thing was you were served the drinks at the table and paid as you went which for a group of 17 worked well.

“Don't let the karaoke put you off!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

we went on a Thursday - no singing only excellent thai food. The menu is brilliant - so very thai with some really beautiful classic dishes. I had the chilli sea bass that totally blew my head off - exceptional flavours and perfect taste. The wine list although only small is decent. The staff were really helpful and friendly - am so going back!
Highly recommended
