Max's Restaurant

South East Asian

  • Max's Restaurant
With more than 100 branches at home, and dozens more in the US and Canada, Max’s is a Filipino institution. At the Karama branch, you can expect the place to be regularly rammed with expat families loading up on hearty, homely food. Despite its claims to fame as ‘the house that fried chicken built’, the fried chicken is underwhelming, even alongside the novelty of banana ketchup. However, wavering between fast food and low-end restaurant, other Asian staples and Filipino specialities (tip: try the Lumpiang) are both tasty – and very affordable, with hearty combos starting at just Dhs18. A must-try experience, for sure. Max's Restaurant

    FOR TAKEAWAYS YOUR KITCHEN STAFF NEEDS TO DOUBLE CHECK ON THE WAY THEY PREPARE THE FOOD . ONE DESSERT WE ORDERED WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE PURELY HALO HALO INGREDIENTS (A SWEET DESSERT WITH SHAVED ICE MILK YOUNG COCONUT, BANANA, KAONG CHCK PEAS UBE JAM LECHE FLAN AND THE LIKE) WHERE WE WERE AGHAST TO SEE A TOMATO PIECE SIMILAR TO THE ONE USE IN SINIGANG IN IT.. YIKES! SO GROSS IT RUINED OUR APETITE. WHO KNOWS ITS HAPPENING ALSO FOR DINE -IN. SO THIS IS TO REMIND YOU GUYS THAT A RESTAURANT HAS TO DO QUALITY CHECK AT ALL TIMES AND FOOD SHOULD BE KEPT CLEAN , FREE FROM ALIEN INGREDIENTS. BUT DESPITE ALL THIS I REALLY ENJOY EATING YOUR FOOD ESPECAILLY MAX JUST PLEASE MAINTAIN QUALITY PREPARATION OF YOUR FOOD ALL THE TIME. HAPPY CHOW!!

    I used to work in Max's in Manilla. we never had so many staffs as they do here, but the service in Phil was much better. The owner here in UAE is not doing a good job, they are not providing training or controlling the staffs.

    I have a big expectation knowing that this is a famous restaurant in the Philippines - Max's Restaurants. Everything turned out to be a disappointment. The fried chicken they have served is very blunt, the chicken sisig too doesn't taste good. I definitely will not return to restaurant.

    It's great that someone has been able to give the same food as in Phil, it tastes really good. but the service is really bad. i go weekly as it is close to my office and they never get my order correct. We always have to wait and most of the time get given the food from another table. We always have to wave at the staff if we want something. But I am lucky they often forget to charge me for something, last time the drinks were missing from the check :)

    I always joke with the staff, but it's not that they are not to blame as they said they have had zero training since they opened.

    The restaurant is getting quiet because filipinos are talking about the bad service
