I like it that they dont take reservations - hence a good chance to get in if one forgets to book ahead if one is prepared to wake up early! We did and we were rewarded. Trolley push carts with translation of contents at the front of the carts. Staff are helpful and the food is very good Cantonese style... More

A reunion meetup with parents as we both happened to be in Hong Kong in Feb 2017, Mum suggested Maxim's restaurant as she swears by the quality of food and grandeur. Mum dined there 30 years ago. I had a brief glance at the reviews and was worried about the long queues so suggested we meet up at 11 a.m.to... More

Maxim's group of restaurants are mostly reliable and provide above-average quality of food, service and environment. There are outlets of Maxim's Palace Chinese Restaurant located at different places over Hong Kong, with some in other names, but providing Cantonese dim sum and food more or less the same. The prices may vary. The one at the Hong Kong City Hall... More

Queued for 45mins, well worth the wait! Must try: pork ribs, egg tarts, baked char Siew polo bun, panfried Cheong fun, Siew Mai, supreme dumpling soup, pomelo mango sago.

Food was v.v.overpriced and nothing was up to standard. We have been going for years but food quality has been decreasing while cost sky rocketed. v.v. disappointing old standards included char siew bao were terrible

I am not sure what is the fuss about this place. Maybe ordering from a cart is an attraction. The dim sum is OK but not standout. We tried a good range of dim sum but at the end of the day, nothing really stood out for us. Given that this place charges more than many others for dim sum,... More

Well, if you are Lucky enough to come to HK, this is the place you should not miss. My partner and I got there on recommandation from the hotel. Because it is in the City/concert Hall building we nearly missed it. Thought we got something wrong. Went to the 2nd floor. 10:45 on monday, people were queuing so we realised... More

Our HK friends chose this restaurant since it is one of the only restaurants in HK that still uses dim sum carts, a dying practice they say! The place is HUGE, it was Sunday so there was a line of people and the tables were full. Our friends had a reservation and got some special treatment so we got in... More

We always eat at Maxim's everytime we are in HK. So many choices and all good. I love the ambiance, crisp white linens and glass chandeliers. The view is great, too. We like to be early and enjoy our brunch before the place fills up and the line gets impossibly long. Then the (senior citizen) ladies who wheel the carts... More

It is a typical chinese restaurant. We went there for dinner and we ordered a few dishes. The portion is quite big. The price is reasonable. Waiters are ok.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
