On the evening of April 6, 2020, just after its kitchen closed for takeout, a fire broke out at China Max Seafood Restaurant and the Chinese restaurant was completely gutted in the blaze, which was ultimately determined to be accidental. Thankfully there were no major injuries, but the well-established Chinese restaurant, popular for its dim sum, and its surrounding businesses sustained more than $4.5 million damages
At the time, owner Cindy Woo shared that they were determined to reopen the restaurant, saying “We are thankful to our loyal customers and our hardworking employees who have supported us for the last seventeen years. With your help, we are determined to rebuild and reopen as quickly as possible.”
And fans of the eatery are now rejoicing, as China Max announced on its Facebook page this week that it plans to 2022. Reports are that the two-level restaurant will be returning to its original state.
