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.

Last week I walked with my friend through Vancouver Chinatown. Around lunchtime, when we got hungry we looked for some good, inexpensive food. My friend recommended “Maxim’s”, the restaurant to the well-known bakery chain. Despite it was lunchtime, the restaurant was not very busy (probably not so many people know about that place upstairs beside the bakery). We ordered a... More

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 was unable to drop by the store to order like I usually do. The next... 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 part of the pre-enjoyment and the grand kiddies were eager to cut and eat the... More

enjoyed the egg tarts and napoleons although I think the napoleons could do with a bit more cream. Egg tarts could be be a little browner but nice and tasty with flaky crust

Don't bother with the restaurant upstairs unless you want to wait awhile. You need to get a number but that doesn't mean you will get seated by number. Several people arrived after we did and were seated before us. We were literally the last ones standing. I asked if they took US dollars and they did before we were seated.... More

Love the buns and they have a wide variety to choose from. I especially enjoyed the polo bun. There is also an excellent Hong Kong-style restaurant above the bakery.

I like this place, Maxim is a big name in Hong Kong, I am not sure if there is any connection. I took a walk in Chinatown in Vancouver, and passed a few places which serves this Hong Kong style bakery products, pastries and cakes. This one looks clean. I bought some sausage buns and Portuguese Egg Custard. They were... More

Watch the prices. Product is fresh. Service can be slow. Good for grabbing something on the run. Cakes are expensive. There are less expensive bakeries for good cake. The bagged or small boxed items are average. Buns are fair/average to other stores prices. Do try it on. They've been around awhile now which is kudos to them - many bakeries... More
