Description: Like shoe designing, whipping up a great dish is an art,��� says Jimmy Choo who has ventured in to the world of food with Maximini, an oriental restaurant near Hyde Park where the celebrity shoe smith is bringing a slice of his Malaysian home to Britain. As beautifully dressed as any of Jimmy���s A-list clients, Maximini is simplistic and chic with a hint of old fashioned colonial style which perfectly suits it���s fabulous Bayswater address. The irresistible Malaysian dishes are fused with more familiar Chinese flavours by master chef Albert Koh, to produce an innovative and exciting menu which, like a timeless pair of heels, looks set to become this season���s must-have.

My partner works close by to here, and after meeting her recently we were walking past and I was just snagged by the indisputable aroma of good quality rice! In we popped and the lovely smell permeated the whole restaurant and emanated from the basement kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed the very good food and service, with the very nice people... More

Had a lovely dinner, mainly appetizers. The crispy duck was superb! butterfly prawns and spring rolls were very good. And the service was very prompt and courteous. Highly recommended.

Nowhere near as good value. Food still very good but wine grossly overpriced. Service marginal. Maximini aptly named.

My pork dumplings where good, my wife didnt like her hot and sour soup and as for the Beef Rendang it looked like a tin of stewed steak had been emptied on a lettuce leaf and the taste was very bitter. Cannot fault the service though but feel really let down

A really good place with some great and tasty Chinese food. The staff is welcoming (we got a table even if I made a mistake with my reservation) and willing to help with the menu if needed. I strongly recommend the sea bass and the chicken and prawn roll, one of the best I ever tried! The price is good,... More

In the end we ordered some Mango Sorbet which was also incredible. After we paid the bill and were just about to leave the staff came back to... More
