We ordered chicken burgers and for some reason when you want to make substitutions like changing bacon mayo for lettuce you had to pay extra??
Service also did not listen to our order properly and there were several mix ups with the fries.
The most average burger i've ever had, poor service, good atmosphere.
Overall, don't think we would be going again.

This is a great place to eat with friendly and helpful staff and lovely food. Really enjoyed our evening. Zsolt was very helpful and it was good to see him take such care in cleaning the table and chairs after someone has left. Will definitely return especially on a Monday with the reduced price menu

We had a good evening , staff were dressed for Halloween and made a great effort especially considering the virus effect on everyone, taking that into account the atmosphere was very good and so was the food, if you an get a deal it makes the price more reasonable. Would not put anyone off going here as all round we had a very good night

Probably the Worst Fajitas in London!
Food was Not Fresh but served in a Hot Pan to give the Impression it was just Cooked!
The whole experience was very Poor,
That included the Response I received from Luca the Manager who apologised for the Bad Food but at least it was taken away from us quickly? Wow what a compensation!
Nothing Positive about Maxwells as well as Poor Quality Food it was Over Priced.
I would Never Return nor Recommend.
Overall a very Bad Costly Hour of our time!!

Let me start by saying the nachos are amazing, I don’t think there was a crumb left in any of the plates. The staff are friendly and since it was Halloween the decoration and atmosphere felt appropriate and fun. However, I don’t feel this place is good value for money. The staff are very good at upwelling things “can I get you any water?” Sure, that’s a costly mistake right there, or sauces that cost nearly the amount I’d pay for an entire meal at a fast food chain (I know, fine dining and all, I’m just making a point). Overall. I felt the main meals weren’t as nice as we were expecting, I had steak fajitas and all I got was fatty, chewy, inedible steak with some lovely grilled peppers and onions. Other meals weren’t very appetising either. The child of the group loved the freak show and the staff car and sang happy birthday and have a slice of cake to the two birthday girls, but I felt the bill was just too much for food that was mediocre at best.

The one thing we didn't like was the 12.5% service charge (only 3 of us dining) that gets split between the staff to then be asked for a gratuity tip when paying by card. I like to leave a tip but I don't like this forced upon me, it should be my choice not yours and especially not twice.
