"Like shoe designing, whipping up a great dish is an art", says Jimmy Choo who has ventured into the world of food with Maximini, an oriental restaurant near Hyde Park where the celebrity shoe smith is bringing a slice of his Malaysian home to Britain. As beautifully dressed as any of Jimmy's A-list clients, Maximini is simplistic and chic with a hint of old fashioned colonial style which perfectly suits it's fabulous Bayswater address.
The irresistible Malaysian dishes are fused with more familiar Chinese flavours by master chef Albert Koh, to produce an innovative and exciting menu which, like a timeless pair of heels, looks set to become this season's must-have.
We look forward to welcoming you at Maximini Chinese Restaurant.

The staff were more like hosts, very helpful and personal, making jokes here and there. We felt comfortable and relaxed whilst eating and being served to. The food was fantastic, very worth the money. 👍🏼👍🏼

I brought a friend and she fell in love with the place too! The food was so tasty and the service from the slightly older gentlemen in the white shirt is always top notch!! They also let my friend and I sit and catch up on life for a while….by I understand this may not be do’able every time as they’re always fully booked! Thank you again MaxiMini I’ll be returning again soon… Amiyna :-)

We were told that we only had 15mins until closing. I understand that closing is 10.30 but why accept bookings if you will just rush your customers. At 10.30 while we were still eating/drinking, the manager demanded us to finish as they were closed so we had to rush and leave which isnt great. Food was also slightly cold served at this time.

Ordered the grilled chicken dumplings and king prawn. For the mains we opted for the story fry duck in black bean sauce and crispy beef with chilli sauce The chicken fried rice was amazing. The penang rice noodle was just average. Overall loved their quick service and food hygiene and cleanliness was just perfect! Best part is, it was all halal!

The food is ok but after reading the reviews I was expecting the food to be really good but it was ok. All in all, just ok restaurant.

Chef must correct this.

Thank you to let us know. However, we have been cooking the same way with ketchup as part of the ingredients for the last 40 years. We see no problem at all. If you have a better way to make the sweet & sour sauce, please let us know. Regards Tony Chow / owner

Prawn Crackers is always less than one minute. U5 Prawn in Peppercorn Salt will be around 10 minutes. Steam Seabass will be 15 minutes. Sorry that none of my staff notice the incident. We do not charge items customers complain. My staff should have been notified.

Some of the dishes we selected were because we saw them on other patron’s tables. Everything tasted fresh and delicious and the service was great.

However when we complained they swapped it for the chicken in black bean sauce with lots of apologising. That was great - very happy with how they dealt with it. Definitely recommend.

Only 5 mins walk from Paddington Station. If you like Asian food you will love this restaurant.

Apps were delish - we had wonton soup and chicken skewers which we both enjoyed. Entrees lacked flavor - we had the special chili chicken which was OK and sweet and sour chicken that I didn’t enjoy at all. Chicken fried Rice was decent. Would recommend a try but maybe with some different entrees

The wasabi prawns and beef rendang were very good but the garlic chicken wings were a total disappointment. The schewan prawns were so so. Service was attentive and the ambiance was good. I wouldn't go back.
