Came with our two sons who are both at Uni in Leicester for a Sunday Birthday Lunch, the food was delicious with decent vegetarian options for my sons girlfriend. The booth very comfortable. We thought the bill was very reasonable and we would definitely return.

Went last night for the first time. Was ok nothing amazing. For the amount of food you get it's very over priced. I have to have gluten free and there was only one thing on the starters that I could have and two from the mains menus nothing from the deserts. I must say I was very disappointed that we... More

We went here to celebrate our anniversary; we had a booth table which was quiet but very dark - I had to use the torch on my iPhone to read the menu. The service was very good, but there were only a few couples in the restaurant that evening. I'm gluten free and vegan and they had dishes available for... More

Went to Maiyango for our anniversary dinner and could not have picked a better place to celebrate it! We had the 7 course taster menu with wine pairing and it was absolutely stunning. Food tasted amazing and was presented beautifully and our sever was very friendly and knowledgeable.

2nd visit, but first lunchtime experience, went for the 3 course for £20, excellent value for money , when arriving to the table the portions don't seem very big, but don't be fooled, made the mistake of ordering veg and chips for sides, don't , you wont eat it all , the flavours of ox cheek starter and suckling pig...

Maiyango is the best restaurant in the City (not the County mind). It is very good, not perfect and not full fine dining. The food is just not refined enough and the service not great to consider a star, but it could easily be bib gourmand standard. I'd certainly recommend the restaurant on a visit to the City.

Visited Maiyango last week, and will deffinetely be coming back. Great food (ox cheek to die for) nicely presented and portions were more than adequate. Tasty cocktails, cosy place and good atmosphere. live music they had on that night was just an added beneit to round off a very nice evening.

Chose Maiyango for our birthday celebration dinner with friends. The small restaurant is attractively furnished and intimate with low lighting and a few booths. The food on the 3 course festive dinner menu (£36) was well received including a particularly good roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
