Unfailing lively, Crazy Bear has been transporting fans of chintzy glamour “to another world” since 2004. Gleaming dark wood, floors in reflective black, a velveteen staircase and leather booths padded in striking red are as unashamedly over the top as a vast pan-Asian menu plundering every corner of the Far East. From reliable sushi (the dragon roll of Alaskan king crab is a pure-luxury winner) and dim sum (venison puffs are our pick) to honey-roasted Old Spot pork reared on the group’s own Oxfordshire farm, exotic ostrich fillet with long beans and chilli paste or budget-busting chateaubriand with bak choi and XO sauce, the food seldom disappoints. Prices can seem steep, but bargain-hunting fan’s report that “meals deals” are “definitely worth it” – provided you resist the lure of Asian-themed cocktails in the plush basement bar. Service by assorted beautiful people mirrors the super-glam vibe, sometimes at the expense of efficiency.

For a friend’s birthday, we headed over to Crazy Bear in Fitzrovia. The restaurant itself is beautiful and glitzy, oozes art deco glamour and is unashamedly opulent. Walking in, you definitely feel a little bit special. We booked the 10 course taster menu and were given prawn crackers and spicy edamame to start. The chilli salt on the edamame was lovely and gave it a good kick. The prawn crackers had a good flavour and a better texture compared to the ones you get from your standard takeaway. A selection of starters followed which included spring rolls, pork and prawn suimai, sesame prawn on toast and chicken satay....
