Go Crazy Fast & Furious
Stir Crazy Thai has become very popular. This Thai Restaurant Group opened up several franchise locations in Neutral Bay, Erskineville, Potts Point (aka Opium Den), Bondi (aka Rice Pot) and Manly (aka Mortar and Pestle).

Come here if you want a good hearty comfort Thai food. Plus it is BYO with a liquor-store just 3 steps away. What more do you want for a quick casual dinner?

My favourite franchise branch would be at the Kirribilli by the bridge and it is literally a gaping hole in the wall, so this is probably not the top choice for a first date.

We were here with a good friend and it was our turn to showcase our favourite local dining places. On a weekend night, this place would be jammed pack so we phoned ahead and booked a table.

As soon as we approached the restaurant, we felt the excitement and anticipation around this little eatery. My friend commented on the match-box sized restaurant with raw brick feature wall and dark wooden furnishings. It was cleverly decorated with large mirror panels and candle lights to create an intimate dining mood.

The popularity does not slow the service down, on the contrary, the service seemed fast-paced, efficient and spot-on.

We were immediately acknowledged with smiles and taken to our reserved table, within seconds glasses of water and glossy laminated double-sided A3-sized menus appeared at our table.

There were so many dishes to choose from we had some tough choices to make.

Our food came quick, fresh, tasty and most importantly... not too spicy. Unlike other authentic Thai restaurants, Stir Crazy has modified the spice level to suit the Australian palate. The dishes were a tad sweeter compared to Spice I am's fiery chili spiciness.

It was a cool night, so we ordered a Prawn Tom Yum Soup ($10.90) to start. This Thai soup has a distinctive sour and tingling taste. Three large king prawns submerge in between the button mushrooms.

We couldn't resist the Holy Duck ($19.90). How could you with a name like that?

This stir-fry dish was so fragrant and flavoursome. However, the roasted duck pieces were not too visible, we had to do a little quest (as you would normally would for anything holy). With unwavering faith and effort, we were rewarded with tender juicy duck.

The dish was fragrant with pumpkin, green beans, bamboo and basil and was not too sweet with just the right background of chilli.

When you eat Thai, you got to try at least one curry dish.

We ordered my favourite Green Chicken Curry ($16.90). The curry sauce was great and addictive and has aplenty of chicken breast meat.

It was a delicious creamy curry served with baby eggplant, green bean, chili and basil.

The chicken in comparison was a bit bland but we did wipe the curry sauce completely clean.

Our meal summary

Seating is extremely limited so book ahead. Otherwise, takeaway is always a good option.
