Graduation Meal

The restaurant is lovely, staff friendly and wine and other drinks are really good. The best part of my meal was the picnic terrine, it was just perfect. We sat in a booth which was really comfortable and feels a bit more special than a regular table.

We booked the restaurant to celebrate my son's graduation. As there were 5 of us we were seated in one of the booths, which was perfect for a family occasion. All courses were delicious and beautifully presented- even down to piping "congratulations" in chocolate on my son's dessert! Good value wine list and inventive cocktails. Lovely friendly stag and great... More

What a let down. We ate here for lunch (in March) and really didn't meet expectations. The menu choice was limited and seemed to be a 'mish-mash' of dishes. The furniture was so uncomfortable, the chairs were so unstable. The service was poor and the for lunch time & food portion it is incredibly over priced!!!

We went out with friends as a further celebration of our wedding anniversary and booked Maiyango as it seemed a good place to try, some reviews were a bit mixed but looking at the menus on line, they looked good - best way to describe it is a fusion of Asian & British cuisine. We like tasting menus and it... More

Not exactly hidden, but a gem none the less. With the re-development of Jubilee Square this place is going to go from strength to strength, and rightly so. The atmosphere is relaxed, not pretentious, and the food is amazing. Service is excellent and not "in your face" whilst, when asked if we enjoyed our food it was clear that the... More

It was a lovely relaxed evening, not too busy as was a weekday night. Luckily two out of the three booths were still available. So comfortable and so nicely done. We had a lovely view of the whole restaurant. The food was brilliant value for money in design, execution and taste. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. There was one momentary lapse... More

We had visited Maiyango before and it was lovely, but this time was just average. The tasting menus only had a vegetarian or gluten free menu (no meat?) and none of the starters interested us so we just had mains and deserts, although if we hadn't already ordered a bottle of wine I think we would have gone elsewhere anyway....

First of all when booking your meal make sure you request one of the booths. this will make for a perfect romantic evening for any occasion. The food and service is impeccable and the atmosphere just rounds the whole evening off perfectly. This is one of our favourite restaurants in Leicester and we will continue to savour this for special... More

If you like to see and be seen then this is the place to go. There's a really peculiar arrangement when you arrive... you can't go straight to your table, they insist you sit in the bar which is overcrowded and uncomfortable. Once in the dining room the tables are packed together and it's impossible to have a conversation without... More
