Crazy Wing, Glen Waverley, Chinese BBQ

269 SPRINGVALE RD, GLEN WAVERLEY, VIC

General
I went there with a All-you-can-eat chicken wings coupon. I heard about this Crazy Wing(s) place from friends so this voucher was a cheap way to try it. As we only tasted the chicken wings, I’ll only talk about this today. They have plenty of skewers and they also serve hot pots.

Atmosphere
2/4
Usual Chinese BBQ place, 10 tables. One good thing, the place has a good hood in the kitchen so we didn’t smell BBQ too much afterwards. The rest is just usual for a little casual Chinese restaurant.

Service
2/3
Service was ok, I appreciated the waiter who told us to only order 1 skewer of Crazy wings instead of 2 because it was very spicy…he was VERY right! However, having the staff having their meal just beside was quite unusual.

(Value for money) Chicken wings
3/10
Well we had a voucher so can’t tell but each chicken wings skewer was $2, I think it’s reasonable.
The thing I like about the Chinese BBQ is that they use charcoal, as other restaurants, they do the same here. There is a nice list of chicken wings with different flavors but when you start eating them…well, they taste ok but they all taste the same. From what I can taste and see in the kitchen, I’m assuming they marinate all the wings the same way. When they grill them, they add a bit of extra flavors but it’s just a bit of curry powder or brush it a bit with a different sauce. The original taste is ok, usual soy sauce, chili and cumin flavors. However, it felt very heavy later in the evening. Flavors were a bit strong, not balanced. It’s usual for Chinese BBQ to have strong flavors but this time it didn’t feel right.
2nd round, as you can “Delicious curry” is the third one from the bottom, the chef just sprinkle some curry powder and that’s it
Authenticity
2/3
Not much to say, yes it’s a Chinese BBQ but I’m not sure all the flavors are really authentic (Delicious curry was just curry powder on top of the wings for example). I have tried much tastier BBQ.

Conclusion
9/20

It’s only about the wings but the name of the place also suggests that it’s their main speciality so I would say…no
The place is ok but you can have much better Chinese BBQ. If somehow, you go there, one recommendation, DO NOT EAT THE CRAZY WINGS! It was flavorless with just a super spicy feeling, it burnt me for a good 5min and I just had a bite. At least, the waiter was kind enough to give me a warning.

Pass!
