the service is terrible, we where in the restaurant 30minutes before anyone came to see us, we tried to get some attention but failed to get any service. the food wasn't worth waiting for either, very average food. shall not be revisiting this place again.

Have to agree with some of the reviews in terms of armature service, they seem to have a high turn over of staff and very rarely see the same faces more than a couple of times. (except manageress), you often have to ask more than once if you want a jug of water 3 times on our last visit. We... More

Plenty of chicken. My husband had lemon chicken and fried rice which he enjoyed very much. We found this a good place to eat and good... More

The other meal, Chow Mein was dry with no flavour. Even the prawn crackers where not cooked properly.. It all went in the bin. We would never use this... More

After this restaurant changed hands we felt the standards dropped but am happy to report that we enjoyed a beautiful meal yesterday, with delicious food, served promptly by friendly staff. We will be back!

Like another here I felt I had to add a review to counter some of what has been said. We ate their tonight. staff were friendly, service was prompt and friendly, plenty of attentive staff, food was very good, bottled beer is £3-50 so had a large glass of Merlot instead for £4. Very nice Merlot indeed, convinced me to... More

We went to Maxin after a matinee Panto at Adam Smith. Oh yes we did.... I had read the reviews and was a bit worried that we were going to be a bit underwhelmed...... However, there were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 kids and our meal from start to end was brilliant. Really good and stand out were... More
