Our guide book recommended this restaurant so, while holidaying in Hong Kong, my husband and I joined the queue one Saturday afternoon in June. We had to wait for about 30 minutes but were entertained in the meantime by protesters demonstrating against Maxim's. The signs...More

The queue was long, we waited about 35 mins after getting a ticket, but it was definitely worth it. Everything we ate was perfect except the calamari was a little tough.

Great choice for Dim Sum! The ambience is lovely, the food is hot, and the service is fast. Just go as they open cause if you go at peak time you will have to wait a bit for a table.

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

No dimsum for dinner, but some desserts may be availabe, e.g. almond and red bean sweet soup, or sweet longevity buns or dumplings, to be ordered in advance.
Can anyone help me to photograph the menu from maxim's palace, or maybe provide any copy or link. i've tried emailing the restaurant for the menu, but they don't reply. i'm planning a late lunch for 20-25 people, and really need to set the course type and budget. any help would be very much appreciated, thank you.
