Visited here for work Xmas party with 20+ colleagues in 2013 late December. The starter was served over an hour later than scheduled and this meant that desert was not served until 11pm. We phoned on the day to confirm everything to which we were told the food was not halal. This caused a major issue for over 50% of... More

Vegan food, correction, vegan food of any quality, is almost impossible to find in Leicester city centre so we were pleased to discover Hotel Maiyango where head chef Nick Wilson has impressively embraced a wide variety of dietary requirements. We visited in November 2013 (yes, the review is a bit late in the day unfortunately) and opted for the extremely... More

Have just finished eating the brilliantly put together taster menu having been anticipating this visit for weeks and it was absolutely perfect! The staff here are friendly, approachable and knowledgeable about the food they're serving. Standout dishes for me were the tomato and chilli velouté, the beef fillet (mouth-wateringly good!) and the lemongrass creme brûlée which id been worried might... More

The food was very well presented and tasted lovely. Reasonably priced too. Staff very friendly. We sat in a booth which was very private and very romantic. Lovely restaurant all in all and would defiantly return.

Tried the new menu at Maiyango today - it was lunchtime, but I chose the Garden Breakfast (just wanted a light bite) and it was gorgeous! Cooked to perfection + beautifully presented - the new chef Nick has put a new twist on casual dining and it works. Quality food + service in a restaurant that cares about the complete... More

Had a fantastic stay in this wonderful hotel. At dinner the staff couldn't do enough, although it is expensive...worth every penny

We have not been to this restaurant for a few years now as we didn't want to depreciate the quality of the food and service and our experience. Little did we know, a new chef had arrived and we were a little worried how the new chef would be able to put his stamp on this already excellent restaurant and... More

I visited Maiyango on a Friday evening so expected it to be busy. There was a large table of diners next to us but that didn't affect the speed and quality of service. A nice touch were the complimentary appetisers and sorbet between courses. The food is very nice with different mixes of flavours that really work well. Overall food... More

restaurants I've ever eaten in. How I've not eaten here before us a mystery to me, having walked past it numerous times over the last couple of years. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in Leicester. The menu looks like it changes a couple of times a season and the food on offer is an interesting mix of different... More
