Went on Sunday evening with our family 6 of us in total, birthday treat for my husband. Very attentive staff, massive menu. We opted for the special meal for two, my son and his family had various different starters, mains and desserts. All our food was delicious. The highlight for me was the prawn toast, it is to die for! I don't normally like prawn toast but omg this was on a different level. Thick layer of minced prawn delicious! The ribs were fantastic too. We all really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be eating here again

Went here today for lunch, both of us had ribs and sweet and sour chicken with fried rice,I will go as far as to say it’s the best sweet and sour for yrs.
Was impressed definitely on the up again.

We have been going to Maxis for over 15 years and have come to love it as one of our favourite Chinese restaurants. BUT, it has steadily gone down over the past 6 months to a year and Christmas Eve was the last time we will eat there.
In November we booked a table for two for Christmas and were advised to put down a deposit of £20 and for that we would receive a 10% discount on the night.
So my first complaint is that they refused to honour the discount saying that only applies to Christmas special dinner but we had Maxis special banquet (the most expensive meal on the menu)
The food was not good, soup OK. Mixed starter OK but without the usual nice little touches of sea weed garnish etc. The crispy duck was dry. The main course was chicken (tasteless) prawns in chillies (so so) sizzling beef ( sweet and huge great lumps of meat) All in all a big disappointment.

Having gone to Maxis Leeds, every Saturday for the last 10 years until it closed down, we drove 60 mile to the Restaurant in York from Durham. This Restaurant opens at 12:00 noon, at 12:05 we were still stood outside and we had to ring them to open the door! A scruffy Eastern European opened the door with holes in his jeans, didn’t acknowledge us, so we went in, there was no one there to show us to a table. Another scruffy Chinese man shouted us back to the bar and said we had to be taken to a table by one of his staff. Incidentally the staff in Leeds were really smart and polite. We walked out and drove 60 mile back to Durham. Horrible, rude and scruffy people. Do the consortium of business men know how this place is run? I don’t think so ☹️
