I always get great service and my food is always made the way I like it - the owner, wife and daughter are welcoming and listen to your choice of meal even when you want your favourite dish prepared to suit you. My husband and I love going especially - especially about 1 pm, I am always welcome, even minutes... More

Food was average, the people at the table next to us complained about a bug in there food. No AC in the restaurant. Only good thing was they have a TV where we got to watch the Olympics.

If you like your food shortly after ordering it and are good to go with fried chicken then this is the place for you.

We asked about the best Chinese food in town and were directed here. They have a take-out window and sit-down dining. Food was fast and hot and tasty... good prices too.

Well... We've had some awesome Chinese in Belize, but this wasn't it. The king pao chicken was mediocre and the sesame chicken was a fail. Prices were quite high considering. Service was fine and they actually made food spicy when we asked for it.

Most restaurants in San Ignacio wrap it up about 9:00 pm. Maxim's, on the other hand, provide some surprisingly tasty take-out later into the evening. Usually being the only game in town allows unforgivable slack to enter the picture on the part of restaurant business owners. Not the case here. Epic proportions too!
