Maximini, Sussex Place

This Jimmy Choo venture is a nicely hidden away restaurant amidst the hustle and bustle of nearby Marble Arch

The food:

Crispy King Prawn in Wasabi Sauce – this starter was really good, the crispy prawns went really well with the mild wasabi sauce

Satay Chicken on Skewer was a good starter.

Crispy Spring Roll, Crispy Seaweed, Hot & Sour Soup with Chicken were pretty standard.

Black pepper lamb was a good main and the Quarter Fragrant Crispy Duck went down really well, it’s lucky to find halal duck . The combination of crispy duck, the hoisin sauce and the sharpness of the onion hits the spot!

Ratings

Food – 3/5 The food is average here with the starters topping off the mains by far. The starters are carefully chosen but we felt that the mains were a bit hit and miss

Service – 3/5 Absolutely friendly and lovely staff but on our second visit, we waited over half and hour for starters and we got the wrong mains- maybe it was a bad day, who knows!

Value – 3/5 For an inner city restaurant that is backed up designer Jimmy Choo, it’s not badly priced but for the quality of food is not worth what you pay

Venue – 4/5  Simple restaurant, goes with the minimalist theme. Nicely situated.

SAS – 3/5 Purely because of the Jimmy Choo association

Overall – 16/25
