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.

This was our first meal at this wonderful restaurant. The waiting staff were prompt, helpful, warm and gracious.We were given a lovely corner table which included a comfortable sofa. The lighting and the ambience were just right.The food we ordered was delicious particularly the Singapore vermicilli & peppercorn salt prawns. We are definately going back!

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.
