Crazy Wings Restaurant

When describing Crazy Wing in Glen Waverley - it's difficult to know where to begin. The overall experience is so bad, that it's amazing that the place has managed to survive up until this point.

The cheap prices certainly entice customers - nothing on the menu exceeds $5. It is definitely an appealing prospect to be able to get an entire meal for up to $5 per person. However, the reality is much different.

The crazy ordering system is difficult to negotiate for newbies - customers are simply provided with the menu, a carbon copy of the menu and a pen, and are expected to fill out their order on the carbon copy of the menu by writing the number of orders next to the dish they desire. However, the menu itself is so vague and unclear, that the ordering process becomes quite difficult.

After ordering, diners wait for an inordinately long time before their dishes arrive at the table. This is also rather problematic. Firstly, the size of the dish is so tiny, that it doesn't provide diners with any sort of satisfaction. Secondly, the service is so slow and inaccurate that often dishes will be delivered to the incorrect diners. Finally, the dishes themselves all look the same, and taste the same, so it's impossible to determine what exactly one is eating. This is worsened by the fact that everything is drowned in chilly flakes and powder, with gay abandon.

A large cut out in the wall provides diners with a view of the activity in the kitchen, but in hindsight, that may not have been the best idea. Extremely questionable food-handling and preparation practices are apparent, with large mounds of meat sitting on the bench or in bowls of marinade, unrefrigerated. Furthermore, none of the kitchen staff wear any sort of head-gear so hairs have a habit of falling in the food (as was discovered in the rice, which arrived after the rest of the meal had been consumed, and was cold).

All in all, avoid at all costs. Or else you'll leave feeling slightly nauseous and hungry, and forced to go and have a second dinner.
