Returned to the restaurant to see if it had improved, as I said I said in my first review, things were not as they should be, because the restaurant is close to home, I wanted it to be good for convenience sake. It was really nice and I'm glad to say I'll be returning, btw the ribs are seriously good.

Been to this restaurant several times recently and have always found the food tasty and served piping hot, although some of the dishes are a bit too sweet for my liking. Portions are generous and reasonably priced. Staff very welcoming and efficient. Restaurant and toilets nice and clean. Lunch set menu is good value. There's also a set 3-course Dinner... More

Hadn't visited this place since it was taken over a while back. Have certainly been missing out! Food was wonderful, beautifully presented and tasted amazing. All really fresh and good sized portions. Also excellent value for money. Will definitely be back.

Lovely, friendly atmosphere. Extensive menu. Freshly cooked produce with the best ingredients. The sizzling platters especially the Emperor Chicken are worth choosing. The sui mai dumplings were sumptuous. Toilets not suitable for disabled customers. Would recommend booking if in a group.

I hadn't been to Maxims in almost four years as we had a negative experience but gave it another chance and was very very impressed. Service polite and food was amazing. Recommend to Chinese lovers.
