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.

    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 went to this restaurant with my daughters and a friend. I'm big on customer service and this restaurant surpassed my expectations!!! Their waiters were so polite! So patient! 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.

    The food was disappointing. The chicken skewers of the starter dish for two were dry, there was very little taste in the rest of the £17.50 dish. The spicy prawn was tasteless. The aromatic crispy duck was OK. The service was hasty and indifferent - “what do you want and quickly” style. We shall not return.

    China town quality food. Service is similar to what you get from china town. Not a place to take someone to impress but good to just to eat the food. Staff not warm like other Chinese restaurants for example in Richmond or Chiswick

    Food was excellent but the service was very slow and disorganised. Once ordered we didn’t have to wait long for the food or drinks to arrive but getting any orders taken was a challenge and this was noticeable with the other diners too.

    The owner came across as rude. When I asked for cashew nuts to be added to my chicken dish, he refused! Eventually got them in a separate bowl. It may ‘not be the Chinese way’ but if I want cashews, then bloody give them to me. After all they still charged me an extra £5 for them!!
