Been twice over the holiday period. Once on my own, had beef and ginger dumplings from the dim sum menu followed by Kwai dil: spicy flat noodles. Was so impressed went back with three others for a big dim sum session. Crab and pork dumplings were delicious, we also had crispy fried squid, won ton, pork buns, fish ball soup, the beef and ginger dumplings and satay whelks.Spring rolls were a revelation: a boring staple elevated to a crisp light delicious delight. The only thing we didn't like was spare ribs, they were very fatty. In fairness I believe this is Chinese taste, many of the dim sum are things like pig intestines and the like. This is authentic stuff. the dim sum menu helpfully has pictures which are a great help when choosing. We had a couple of beers each and the bill was fifteen pounds a head. Great value.
A lot of reviews criticize the service. We found it polite friendly and efficient.

We were a party of 9 for my daughters 18th and Maxis was perfect. Fun decor, big tables, efficient service and tasty food. Easy ordering via the banquet options also made the evening more fun. Highly recommended!

Have gone right off Chinese food due to the poor quality chicken they use in most of their dishes. Went to Maxis in the hope of a tasty treat . So disappointed to be served the same rubbery chicken again.Seems it is not just a Scottish practice......
