This multi-award-winning eatery has spent 10 years becoming a firm favourite with Bahrain diners.
From a humble beginning, with the opening of a small outlet in Riffa in 2009, David’s Stir Fry Crazy has grown into a popular and much-loved restaurant. Co-founded by David and Anne, David says: “We genuinely wanted to serve real comfort food away from home. We built a tradition of relying on our passion for cooking, taking inspirations from the home kitchen. We added a little flair with good old-fashioned creativity. And that tradition carried on to our branch in Adliya which was established on the day of 12/12/12.
"Our creation and cooking are inspired by the diaspora of Chinese living in all the corners of the world. Adapted and adopted to local produce and the environment. Some dishes reflect the tropical nature and climate of Southeast Asia and the seasonal chill of the Far East. The street food scenes and the flavours have been incorporated. The emphasis is fresh, fresh, fresh."
David arrived in Bahrain more than three decades ago. He has been associated with the food industry right from the start. A lot of you will remember him from the Hong Kong restaurant days. He was intricately involved with the production of all those dishes back then.
Anne has been involved with the restaurant scene for about the same time, albeit behind the scenes. Her knack for recognising great dishes and a keen sense of taste have served to complement to David's concoctions.
Dishes are made from scratch daily offering fresh, new, unique and bold flavours with everything being made in-house.
David continues: “We have built ourselves a reputation of serving impossibly fresh food. Selecting the freshest produce. Cooked with passion, sprinkled with a good dose of love. Don’t ask us but rather the multitude of guests who have tried our food.”
The restaurant has won awards for both Best Service 2015 and Best Chinese 2016-2018 and its signature dishes, including Roast Peking Duck, Scorpion Prawns and Tree Climbing Squirrel Fish, are firm favourites time and again.

David and Anne’s new venture, with a different name, Bambudha, can be found in the heart of Juffair. The owner explains: “After the success of David's Stir Fry Crazy, there was this desire to create a whole new dining concept. The street food dotted around the Asian cities has been a source of inspiration and has been providing generations with comfort food. We grew up in that kind of vibrant environment. So, my wife and I thought, why not bring that inspired street food into a bistro style environment? That would not be enough, so we tweaked it a bit, added some flair and made it into gourmet fare.”
Set against a backdrop of modern and rustic interiors. The bistro will have a dynamic buzz to it. Live cooking will be the focal point. A noodle station will be churning out all the popular Asian noodle dishes. Then there is a world of stir fries. Chefs stir frying your dish as you watch it on a flaming wok as well as the ubiquitous Asian salads dressed and tossed right in front your eyes.
With signature dishes including: Korean Beef Bulgogi Bibimbap, Black Pepper Beef and Potatoes, Vietnamese Braised Beef Noodle Soup the new venue will soon be as popular as its sister.
