“Good but over priced”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We have been regulars at the Maxis chain for a good few years except now we feel there is better value eleswhere when it comes to chinese restaurants. We would continue to go if they'd lower their prices or at least do early bird deals. I've noticed how much busier other chinese restaurants are compared to Maxis wich I'm pretty sure is down to overcharging by Maxis. Having said this, the food and service here is excellent..........it just a shame we can't afford to continue going!!

“really nice chinese food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We went on a friday evening and it was really busy, but swarming with staff. We loved the decoration its actually so over thetop thats its authentic! The food was amazing and portion sizes were extremely generous. Bit disapointed they dont do rose by the glass but enjoy the evening very much.

“Fantastic Feast!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We went to Maxis for a special family do. It was their anniversary so they had a disco starting at 10pm which was fun. We ordered off the set menu for 5. This was a 4 course feast or duck soup, crispy spring rolls and ribs on a platter, crispy duck pancakes and 4 main dishes with rice.

The food was as always, gorgeous. Staff were friendly and efficient despite it being a very very busy Saturday evening.

At 10pm the music started, we had a little dance and then headed home. A really enjoyable night!

“Good food”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Have used Maxi's for years in Leeds. Whilst I think that the Leeds restaurant has gone off the boil the York one is still great.

The decor still takes some getting used to but overall I think the food wins over.

Good value food, and excellent quality and fast service..

“Average”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Food was ok, starters were ok but mains were better. Restaurant looks great from the outside but a bit weird inside. Very quiet when we went, only a few other tables and it felt a bit empty as it's pretty big inside. Don't think I wouldn't go back if I was passing but I'm in no hurry either. Food about £60 for 2 including drinks.
