I had been wanting to eat here for a while, so my husband and I visited on a Saturday afternoon. The booth was free, so we asked if we could sit there. It was comfortable, however quite dark. The other tables seemed set very close by to one another. The were lots of drapes around the booth and the decor... More

Pre-booked for five people mid-week for a birthday treat. Lovely boutique venue facing a new piazza in Leicester. We received a warm welcome, chose our drinks/meals in the sofa area and were shown across to our table when it was ready. Small menu, with a great variety of dishes to cater for a range of dietary requirements. The food was... More

Small portions, but food was very good: original dishes, very well executed! Service was very slow and waiters were not always available. In the end it was a good dinner in a nice atmosphere.

We went to this place for team dinner, the food was good but not amazing. I had the scallops for starter which came with a risotto which was quite salty, the main was duck which was nicely cooked and for dessert I ordered a plum pudding but got a Christmas pudding !! Not the cheapest either...

This year was our second year of holding our company Christmas party at Maiyango and we couldn't have been more delighted. A party of 23 people is no mean feat but we were catered for in a relaxed, professional and friendly environment that ensured everyone was happy. The food was outstanding, the service second-to-none, and the hospitality in the bar... More

Mondays are often quiet nights, but as there was only one other party in the restaurant we were well looked after. I had scallops and then sea bream, very tasty, my husband had pork followed by duck. Food was well presented, but as our eyes are not what therey were, we would have appreciated higher light levels, especially when reading... More
