This review is for Kowloon Bay branch). Dim sum was very average but price was high. Not value for money and there are better options.

At Maxim’s you get the best Dumpling from Hong Kong. Be there 15 min before they open in the morning, else it’s possible that you need to wait some time. The dumplings and other food they serve are great, a place must go. For Chinese...More

Great good at a reasonable price. It’s worth a trip there if you enjoy a large variety of Tim sum. The restaurant is big enough and I did not have to wait for a table

I love Dim Sum and I love the Maxim Palace. This a proper Dim Sum restaurant with the food being selected from trollies as they trundle by. Take time to take in the ambience and the decor, the chandaliers are worthy of a visit alone....More

Maxim's Palace is always our favorite Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong for dim sum. The dim sum carts offer a variety of delicacies. The scenery of the Victorian Harbour is also very nice. It is certainly the place for everyone.

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
