A fixture in the local Chinese community since its establishment in 1974, Maxim continues to provide excellent service and authentic Chinese cuisine in a handsome setting on Northfield Avenue. Led by Mrs Chow, who, at 89 years old (at the time of writing) still oversees kitchen activities, ensuring that every customer is given the same care and attention that has always made her restaurant such a huge success. Close to Northfield Station, Maxim Chinese is a popular spot for West Ealing residents as well as for diners from throughout London.
Known as Mrs. Chow’s by its loyal fans, Maxim Chinese Restaurant on Northfield Avenue is a family-run dining establishment that serves authentic cuisine to a clientele consisting of Chinese emigres, Asian-food lovers and casual diners who are simply addicted to the delicious dishes Mrs Chow and her kitchen crew make daily. With a stylishly decorated high-end interior and chic Oriental furnishings, Maxim is one of West Ealing's finest dining establishments, and a favourite among locals. Due to its immense popularity, it’s best to make a reservation before visiting this London favourite.
Specialising in Peking-style Chinese cuisine, London’s Maxim Chinese Restaurant offers several signature dishes featuring pungent flavours just like you might taste in Beijing. Seafood dishes, like the cubed whole lobster with rice noodles (in your choice of ginger & spring onion or black bean sauce) are particularly notable, while more exotic dishes like frogs’ legs Peking-style please diners with adventurous appetites. Vegetarians can get on board with numerous choices including bean curd in sweet and sour sauce or the aubergine in soya sauce, and pork lovers are encouraged to try the braised spare ribs in soya sauce. No good meal is complete without dessert, so make sure to try out the glazed toffee banana with sesame seeds or the egg pancake filled with sweet bean paste before saying goodbye to Mrs Chow and her legendary Ealing restaurant.
Been here a few times now. Each time the service is as good as the last. Food excellent as always. Can't wait for my next visit.
First time @Maxims Great atmosphere very nice helpful staff. Delicious starter and main crispy duck was splendid . Prepared well. Highly recommend. And defiantly return again soon .
My family were staying in this area as part of my husband's 60th birthday celebrations. My husband and I used to frequent this restaurant when we lived in the Ealing area which was some 28 years ago at least! We were not disappointed - the food was as good as ever. Service was good and staff friendly and efficient. All made for a great celebratory evening.
