It’s a good sign when a restaurant is always busy, and Maxim in Ealing is bustling most nights. This long-established restaurant in Ealing is known affectionately by its customers as “Mrs Chow’s” in homage to the lady in charge of the cooking, who believes in using fresh, natural ingredients. Feeling adventurous? Swap sesame prawn toast for “shredded jellyfish with three delicacies” or “frog’s leg in black bean sauce”. If not, don’t worry – you’ll do just as well with traditional starters like satay chicken or sweet-and-sour won ton. Follow with aromatic duck, a classic of its kind with crisp golden skin and tender meat, or push the boat out with a whole lobster, halved and served with ginger and spring onion sauce. Side dishes like glossy, crispy green beans are equally good. Finish with deep-fried banana and apple, the crunchy coating giving way to soft, fluffy fruit.

    Having not been to Maxim's for a while, and feeling it had lost its way a bit, I was pleasantly surprised to have a nice family meal here. The food and ambience were good, the service was efficient but a little perfunctory, and it is quite expensive, especially with the added service charge. Would go again for a special occasion.

    I was disappointed that we we not offered tea to start with. Service good but the acoustic a bit noisy. I thought the food would have been more traditional, however we had a good time.

    Nice staff and prompt service. Reasonable prices. Spare ribs starter was good, lots of meat and tender. Orange beef was fried to the point of tastelessness though. Sea bass in black been sauce was good but small portion.

    We had a disappointing evening at Maxim. We've been there before and liked it but this time it was less than average. We were sat at the back, and thankful, as it was quieter. We had the mixed platter starter for 2 which all tasted good but seemed to be half the size from when we had it before. One spring roll between us and one rib each - really? The prawn toasts had been chopped into small pieces. The service was cursory and so fast we had to ask for a pause between courses, it felt like they wanted us out of there asap, and kept topping up the wine very quickly, I hate that. The crispy duck wasn't great, it tasted like a frozen pack from a cheap supermarket, likewise the sea bass, that didn't taste very fresh either. I love chinese food and have eaten in many Chinatown restaurants, Maxim doesn't even come close, which is sad. Won't be back.

    As always, the food at Maxims was first class. Sadly, the service for a table for two was a little less than we’d come to expect and the value has reduced - it’s always been a lurker expensive but seems to have gone a wee bit overboard with today’s base costs. That’ll not stop us from returning but perhaps not as often as we’d like.

    Really great food in a very pleasant setting, and good value as well. An excellent local restaurant. It was especially good being there for Chinese New Year as they did a dragon dance which was a real spectacle. Have been going to this restaurant for years now and will definitely go back.

I didn't think twice in paying the service charge! The service was impeccable! Money very well spent! Would highly recommend this restaurant! The food was also very tasty! 10/10

    Always enjoy Maxims. It isn't a cheap venue but we have been going there for 36 years simply because it is our go-to place when we have anything to celebrate. Our children have grown up celebrating special occasions at Maxims and we wouldn't change a thing. The food is wonderful, beautifully seasoned and served and always delivered to the table piping hot in a way most restaurants can't manage. The wine is very good though, again, not cheap. I think it's the best restaurant in Ealing and a firm favourite with almost everyone we know. Highly recommended.

    Our dinner night at Maxim's on Saturday 14/5 was very pleasant. The starter platter to share was very nice. We followed by crispy Peking duck which arrived with paper thin pancakes, extra thinly sliced cucumbers and spring onions. Dessert was toffee apples which my husband and I shared, one portion is enough for two. Dinner was washed down with jasmin tea as we are non drinkers. The restaurant was full but not noisy. Attentive service, food was fresh and tasty and we did not wait long for the food to arrive. We will be taking our son for dinner when he next visits us.

    We've been going to Maxim for more than 3 years. The food is always fresh, well prepared and so tasty. There's something for everybody including vegetarians and vegans. As a vegan myself, I can say that there is a wide range of dishes I can choose from. The staff is always welcoming, polite, helpful, friendly. They all make you feel like you are part of the family. The service is quick and efficient even when the restaurant is full. Maxim is our first choice for chinese food to take away or eat out.
