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.
Great Chinese food in a lovely friend atmosphere. Their crispy chilli beef and sweet and sour chicken are amazing. They also always have the toffee apple with seasame seed dessert and vanilla ice cream that I love! 💗 Top score for Maxim!
Cannot praise this restaurant high enough, fantastic food and attentive service. We had one of the set menus and it was Excellent value, can’t wait to go back!
We spent the new years eve at Maxim restaurant and had the new year set menu. Price was great for the amount of food we had. The food was absolutely delicious food, efficient service and the staff was lovely, attentive and caring. The crispy duck was amazing.
We had a very enjoyable meal. There were 4 of us and we were greeted warmly. Service is efficient. The menu is refreshingly simple with the usual favourites and some innovative dishes. The dishes we chose were well prepared and free from the usual gloopy sauces you can find in some Chinese cuisine. We will definitely return.
Very good Chinese, bustling and busy which is always a good sign. The food was not greasy at all. The only downside was we had to wait for our table even though we had booked. It was probably half an hour before we had drinks. So keep that in mind. Our table was 8.30 and we had our first course after 9pm. But I would go again!
As always, we had a really good time at Maxim Chinese Restaurant: both the food and the service were up to the usual very high standard.
Absolutely the best ribs in town! In fact all the food is very good, tried some delicious veal last night as well as the usual delights of crispy duck, crispy shredded beef and sizzling lamb. The service is great, so definitely a place to keep coming back to - and we do!
Had table booked for 6:30, was running a little late and when trying to change table to 7pm they were so unhelpful over the phone and insisted the table would need to be vacated by 8pm, even though there was 6 of us dining. Arrived to a very frosty atmosphere and not one of the waitresses/waiters could even crack a smile!! We dined within the hour as requested, and almost felt our food was being thrown out to us so that we would leave as soon as we could!! The food itself was lovely but the service overall really lets the place down!
We went for more son's 21st Birthday dinner and as usual the food was excellent. we have tried several Chinese restaurants but none come close to Maxim's. Even though we live a distance away we are prepared to travel as the food, ambience and service is great. I would highly recommend
Lovely restaurant, great food & service. I have given the venue 5/6 only due to the fact that the waiters/waitresses are rather over keen on topping up your wine glass through the meal - Many times we had to ask them to leave the pouring to us otherwise we would have had the whole bottle done before the mains came out.
