We found this place by chance on our weekend trip to Vancouver over Christmas. The two places we really wanted to try in Chinatown were closed for Christmas Eve (unheard of here in Texas). First, this place is cash only. Thankfully, there is an ATM...More

Chances upon this when wondering around Chinatown in Vancouver Downtown. The bakery is at the ground floor while the cafe was upstairs. A number of dishes in the menu were no longer available. The servings are generous. (Hence, not expensive) However, the fried noodles are...More

I am so glad this place still is open in Chinatown. The bakery items are really good and fresh. This time I choose the ham and green onion buns as easy lunch items for tomorrow. You can order customized cakes in advance.

Great place to pick-up some cheap eats. They are a variety of baked goods and at the current exchange rate the prices are great. They only take cash

We've been ordering birthday cakes from Maxim for years now. They usually does a really amazing job in decorating and personalizing the cakes. A few weeks ago, I had to place the order for a cake for my Dad's birthday over the phone as I...More

Maxim's consistently offers a great selection of Chinese pastries in a clean setting. My brother ordered a Black Forest like fresh fruit cake for our dad's birthday. The cake was beautifully decorated with bright coloured fruit (kiwi, strawberries, peach, and maraschino cherries). Lovely presentation is...More

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
