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.

At the outskirts of the Paddington restaurant district in London Street you find this restaurant, almost hidden, but well worth finding. The food is Cantonese, served in a discretely elegant room with just a few touches to underscore the origins. There is room between that tables, which gives a bit of privacy. The appatisers were rather average, but the traditional... More

I decided to eat here instead of my favorite Chinese in London ( Princess Garden in Mayfair) as I was staying at the Paddington Hilton for the first time and it was just a short walk to the restaurant. Reviews in TripAdvisor were positive so I was looking forward to a nice meal. Location : Located in a side street... More

Really nice place in a good area! The food was amazing. The duck and the chicken with lemon sauce were delicious. Also the special rise. I really recommend this place! And the service was very attentive. I definitely come back!

We are happy to love around the corner from Maximini. This is our weekly go to meal. It's consistant, speedy and the service is good. We've never had a bad meal here.

The food was good but the wait was far too long, there is a difference between taking your time and the feeling of being ignored. The restaurant was full and the staff paid great attention to the larger tables leaving us till last. The starters were very ordinary and we had to send one main dish back as it was... More
