This is a high end Chinese restaurant in comparison to other restaurants in this town. My definition of high end means a reasonable good restaurant to bring your clients for a good meal. Good food. Good service.

Excellent Chinese food at reasonable prices! The Peking Duck was a hit, as was the sweet and sour seafood soup!

The food is good and fairly priced. The owner was very helpful and the prawns with butter sauce was superb. They even gave a favorable exchange rate when making change in USD (better than the banks at the airport in Kuala Lumpur).

I came across Maxim's purely by accident as I was strolling around town looking for somewhere to eat dinner. The restaurant is quite large by Tawau standards and looks as if it could seat several hundred people. The appearance is classically Chinese - starched tablecloths...More

Good for lunch & dinner. NOT suitable for muslims as they serve pork. However, whenever there's a dinner event hosted there, the quality of food seems to drop. Services by their staffs are good and well trained - one of the best in town too!...More

The steamed pomfret is a must! The special "naked neck" chicken ;) is very tasty steamed as well. Sabah vegetable or sayur manis stir fried with garlic or belacan(shrimp paste, spicy) is crunchy and completes the meal.
