“Valentine's day just basic”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Visited Leeds for Valentine's and we fancied a Chinese meal. The decoration was basic for Valentine. But they offered a 4 course special meal. And we heard it is a very nice chinese. So we gave it a try.
The food was not to our expectation. Below standard. Service was rushed and over priced when combined the quality of service and food.
The plate warmers need to be replaced as they old and dated. And the kitchen cupboards at the end of the restaurant if a fauls wall was build and finished off with oriental decoration to conceal the kitchen...would make the restaurant far more appealing. And also to add the serving plates and bowls would look far better if they wete replaced.
If all these above were altered would make a huge difference on presentation.

“Always great”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Whenever we go to Leeds we always try and go to Maxi's. We had the banquet for two - food was amazing, we didn't eat all day to make sure we had room to fit it all in!.

The restaurant was busy as it was coming up for Chinese new year - service great - would rate this as on of my top 3 Chinese restaurants in the uk

If you are in the area its a must

“Exceptional meal”

From the outside, it looks ok, but as for the inside, it's like Dr who's tardis. Food was excellent and very fresh.
Would go back again

Excellent as always! Try crispy belly pork on Mondays in particular (Chinese takeaways day off in Leeds) gai lan, steamed sea bass, duck on the bone and many other authentic Chinese dishes. Love it!

Thank you Candy x
