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.
The meal was excellent and enjoyed by all. We had returned to Maximes for a 50th Birthday Patty after an absence of 20 years and the food was as good as we remember
Birthday celebrations with family- great food & atmosphere, & great service as well. This is always a very popular restaurant, and is always great quality
As usual, the service was excellent and the food amazing. Favourite restaurant by a mile! Been going to this place for nearly 40 years and it just gets better.
