Hong Kong Style Western Cuisine

Maxim caters predominantly to Chinese in the metro Toronto area. Its specials are of good value money wise to the Chinese customers who grew up with the Hong Kong style western cooking, which in my opinion is sub-par to a Canadian restaurant with good quality food.

We went for the New's Eve dinner -- It was just amazing and great value. Waiters were attentive and very friendly.

The lunch special price is good, between the rang of $9 to $15 including soup, main course and coffee/tea. I always enjoy their seating as they are not overly packed and not too noisily. We go there quite often (may be once or twice a month for the last many years). The cake is good, I like their valvet cake.

Went to Maxim Restaurant last night for the first and last time. Order an app (Brushetta) and about 10 minutes later order our entrees. 35 minutes later they bring out the app. Now I don't know about you, but to toast bread and put Brushetta on it doesn't take this long. Not to mention it had no flavor. No seasoning... More

I have never been to a restaurant where they serve food so slow. It took over 30 mins for the main course to arrive after the soup was served. Absolutely absurd. The food may be good but the servers were horrendous. Would not recommend the restaurant because of service but would recommend the restaurant because of the food.

I have been here many times and have never had a bad experience. The food is outstanding, simply look at the menu. Be prepared to wait a bit for your cheque because the staff are very busy at high times. We eat out 5/7 times a week, we go here often and I highly recommend this restaurant................the food is fabulous!

Maxim offers a western style menu catering to the Hong Kong style cafe palatte, however, it strives to be more than it is and fails to convince. The setting and decor is modern, suitable for large groups as well. Their main strength is the selection of cakes and pastries which I would rate separately as "Very Good". I recommend purchasing...

My family went to Maxim for dinner on Saturday. The bread was cold and the cream soup was too thick. The food was just ok. The only good part of the dinner was the dessert. They have a variety of cakes for you to pick. The waitress were not attentive. Not worth to pay for a pricy dinner just for... More

The food is really good. The prices are very reasonable considering that most restaurants don't serve dessert as part of their lunch menu. For around $12 + tax you get a 3 course meal. Service is really good and they were really helpful as well.
