I have tried to give Crazy Fire the benefit of the doubt but no matter what I try or the several times I have gone I have gotten sick after each visit. It is pricy and I don't pay to make myself sick.

Love eating here for lunch. You can load up your bowl as high as you can. It is fun and easy. Sometimes a hit or miss on seasonings, but that is also part of the fun. Priced pretty well for what you get. You can get 1 bowl or all your can eat , but you have to be a pretty big eater to have to go back.

I had never been to a similar place, where you can select your victuals and get them cooked in front of you...

In fact, it took me some time to love this place. The reason being, you have to (it's a must) be creative in making your dish. Sometimes they are good and sometimes they are bad!!

Do complement yourself when it turns out to be great..

Alot of the reviews are right about the lighting, I was very dim. Where else can you play with your food? This is my favorite restaurant, my (6 year old) daughter's too! I have to admit it is not a 5 star restaurant and it not as clean as I keep my kitchen, but I never have had a bad experience yet! I love to be able to be creative. I had made some GREAT combo's, but I have made some bad ones too! I would definately recommend to all my friends!!

Cons: None

My husband and I usually get our order to go. We will fill our bowls and then take the bowls to be cooked. We always have left-overs so we feel like we get a lot of food for the amount of money that we spend.

Reading the other ratings was disturbing as my wife and I love this place. My wife has special needs (disabled with a service dog, maintains a vegetarian diet) and they are always very accommodating. We live within a few miles of this place and go several times a month to eat there. Monica, the manager, is a sweetie, very down to earth, and the staff (while young) is always very friendly and eager to help. If you have had a bad experience before, give it another try. It's obviously improved since many of these reviews were written. And tell the Monica, the manager, that Abigail (my wife's service dog) recommended the place to you!

Beware if you go in with a group of 6 or more there is an 18% gratuity added. This even applies to lunch time.Have always enjoyed the food, that I placed in my bowl and walked to the cooking area and from the cooking area to my table. I just don't think that 18% should be forced for a waitperson seating me at a table, bring me a fork and drink with refills at the end of the meal.I can understand if they had to do more or if I was being a rude customer.

I took my family to this restaurant. The food was so bad we could hardly eat it and I had to take them to the cafeteria over in the next shopping center just to get something to eat. I was embarassed for making such a poor choice. My family loves asian/thai food. This place was a disaster.

Staff was teenage, inexperienced and non professional.

Facility and tables were dirty.

OK - so maybe this is not the ideal place for a quick in and out for lunch. I haven't been there for lunch.
I can say that this is by far my favorite restaurant. Where else can you find all you can eat shrimp, scallops and calamari (and that's just the seafood) at a very low price. Huge selection of meats and veggies,, sauces and spices to assemble your meal. The trick of this is to grab two bowls, one for your meat items and one for the veggies. Add your sauces and spices and watch them cook it up for you (Hey! slip the guy cooking your food a buck tip everytime you go up).

First of all I love the food and the whole concept that I get to make it my way.The guys that work the grill are always great. We own a business in the area and stop in because it's close. However the service the last two times we've been has been terrible.It starts out good but after being seated no one ever returns. I had to ask the manager what happened to our waiter because he never came to fill our drinks,bring silverware, or bring a highchair for the baby.I could understand if the place was packed... but it wasn't.We've been to the one in Raleigh and the service never stops.

Very disappointed in the pricing! I've been a customer for years, brought my friends and family and introduced them to your establishment. I firmly believe they are taking advantage of the consumer and will be looking to take my business...and friends elsewhere in the future!

Need to add another $ to the Meal Price..on the left under Restaurant Info

Hopefully, if enough folks "walk away"...you'll "come back to earth" and lower your lunch prices!

Pros: Food cooked the way you like (most of the time)

This is about the CF in Raleigh........ My friends and I used to go there once a week...... The food is still excellent!! But the service is terrible!! I was told they changed management and since then the prices have gone up and the service is not good. Now when we go we have to plan a 1 1/2 hour lunch because the waiter/waitress forgets to bring us our bill. (We went there today and on Wed. and it happenend both times!) The only reason I go anymore is because of the food. The bathrooms make me mad, too. They are very clean..... but... I have been going there for over 3 years now and the same light in the bathroom flickers so bad it makes me dizzy when I walk in there. The best part about the whole place is the cooks! They rock!! They are the ones who should be making the money!!! They are the only ones doing any work!!!

The selection is wonderful ranges from beef, chicken, seafood with pasta and veggies to go with it. Make your own concotion, putting your own spices and voila! you have your own favorite dish, made to order! The prices are reasonable.

We eat there quite a bit. The food is always good and it is easy and fast to go there with my kid. The downside is it is pretty expensive for a 3 year old, I say $6.95.
You can choose any meat combination and no extra charge for beef, chickem seafood, etc. Comes with tons of veggie choices and tons of different sauces. I like the spicy mixed with sesame oil!

Pros: Good food, fast service, cool to watch your food cooked.

Cons: They need a kid's price that is more reasonable.

Good atmosphere for a family outing. We made different combinations with the available sauces and don't forget to add the dry spices for some real flavor. The buffet bar was kept clean and the area replenished. Waiters a bit eager for their tip and came around the table a bit too often...it was Sunday night though so they were not full. I'd go back again but next time for lunch when prices are even better.

This is a fun place to eat, but dont go to crazy fire without an empty belly! You get all you can eat. Also, dont even think about using the mild sauce. It is REALLY spicy!

Although they have had some problems with the Health Rating a few times, we enjoy eating here and are able to always put together a great dining experience. Nader, the manager, is a fantastic guy and is very concerned about his diners' enjoyment of the restaurant. If you order the buffet(mandatory in the evening) they do not mind if you do not eat a dish that did not come out to your liking, and opt to prepare a second attempt. I am able to prepare a take-out dish that is enough food for two to eat dinner for $6.95.

This is a fun place to eat -- you make your own dinner & then watch them cook it. Someone else complained that you only get one bowl, then can't take home leftovers. Maybe that's the case for lunch...but for dinner, it's all you can eat. (which does mean no leftovers) The atmosphere here is definitely lacking, but the one is Raleigh does have better atmosphere. Try to avoid busy times, because it can be slow waiting to go through the line to make your food & waiting for it to be cooked. If you end up having your food cooked at different times than everyone else in your party, you'll end up eating at your table alone.

Crazy Fire is a neat place... I keep going back to try a new concoction. The nice thing about the mix-your-own-bowl concept is you get all the advantages of "cooking" yourself without the hassles. However, CF's service leaves a bit to be desired -- all the waiters have to do is fill drinks and bring the check, and they are extremely slow at doing that. When I needed a drink refill, my waiter completely ignored my "wave" and I had to stand up and go get him as he chatted with a buddy. Hardly appropriate.

The biggest turnoff about this place was the fact that if you pay for 1 bowl of food, whatever you don't eat, you cannot take it home with you. I can understand if you get the buffet option and you are not allowed to take the food home - but when you pay for a specific amount of food (i.e. 1 bowl), whatever the contents of that bowl are mine once I pay. When I asked for a to-go box, they said we don't allow that. What!!!!? So they are essentially saying that I cannot take the food that I paid for home with me and they are simply going to throw it into the garbage anyway. What a waste of food and simply a stupid policy. The food was great by the way but I think this major flaw alone will keep this place from ever succeeding.

This restaurant was great. They have all the raw meats and vegetables you can imagaine as well as the spices and sauces to compliment your selection. When you take your bowl to be cooked the cooks are entertaining and the waiters are top notch. All for only $9.95 (all you can eat).

Great food! Didn't see anything weird about this place. Don't let the "Mongolian" scare you either. Just lots of meat, lots of veggies, and some seafood. Pick what you like and they grill it for you.

Lunch time was cheap. 1 bowl for 5.95 filled up most people. 2 bowls for 7.95 will leave you stuffed.
