Went as part of a group of eight last night and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Went for the 9 course tasting menu priced at £45 per head. Surprisingly, no matching wines option? We had a number of conversations with Maiyango on the run up to last night and was very impressed with their attentiveness. Arrived and went for a... More

Delicious, imaginative, creative food with attentive staff. Relaxed atmosphere. A lovely evening and looking forward to seeing how Maiyango creativity will engage with soon to be opened Jubilee Square. Will be back- that is for sure

Maiyango isn't the cheap option but the food is amazing. One of the best meals I've eaten in Leicester.

Impressive start to our first visit when on reserving a table we were asked whether any guests had any allergies, also asked whether we wanted to be seated in a pod for a later time, however we declined this as we didn't want to eat that late. Restaurant was busy when we arrived, and there was a big Hen party... More

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
