I was very fortunate to receive some vouchers to dine at Hotel Maiyango which I saved for a special occasion (well, going back to university at any rate). It was a very enjoyable experience, with attentive staff, good food and an enjoyable, if a tad dark, moroccan vibe. When we arrived we were seated in a cute little wooden booth,... More

I had booked in advance and secured one of the booths in the restaurant which was great. There is a problem with Maiyangos in that it is possibly too popular for its size. If you do not book a booth , then dining here is a bit refectory like , with tables in two lines extremely close together ie just... More

I've eaten at Maiyango many times and always given it 5 stars on reviews here for its excellent food and service, so was very disappointed to pop in for a coffee and croissant today. The espresso was good as was the service, but the croissant was stale. I sent it back and asked if perhaps they'd reheated yesterday's croissants but... More

Been trying to get in Maiyango for a while as it came highly recommended. We sat and had a cocktail first but was over half an hour until we were seated (we did book). I then had to go up to the bar (as staff were busy) for another drink which involved squeezing through very tight spaces as the tables... More

Being Muslim it is difficult to find place that serve up halal meat, but here at Maiyango they cater for Muslims. I enjoyed the food, and atmosphere… and have been impressed on both occasions I have are here, I also enjoy the pallet cleansers that come out between meals as little treats! Worth the money and worth going out to... More

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.
