Beautiful food - Staff confused

I visited this restaurant with my partner for our evening meal. The food was fantastic, couldn't fault it at all. The wine was lovely too, as was the prosecco! When we were seated, one of the waitresses apologised for the location of our table (we saw nothing wrong with it) and offered us a... read more

I appreciate Maiyango because they try hard, really hard to be different on their food. But somehow it doesn't always pay off. This was our second visit, and we are all quite "foodie" and appreciate fine dining. For each of us, there was a dish that didn't particularly work, because of the flavour combination or the presentation. In all cases,... More

Visiting with friends and family. Great selection of Indian and European dishes. There was live music which was a plus. Starters were delivered on time, selection of fish, prawns and chicken bites. Mains were sea bass and vegetables. Desserts were also good. Def recommend as one of the better restaurants in Leicester City centre

We wanted to treat my parents to a fine dining experience on their visit to Leicester and we were not disappointed. Swordfish with a fantastic chilli peanut paste was a winning starter for me and, with 72 hours notice, the chef made an off menu fresh fish dish to suit my father's dietary requirements. Each course was beautifully presented and... More

We had our wedding reception at Maiyango and they couldn't have done a better job. We went to several advance meetings with Rebecca, the events manager, who helped us plan everything just as we wanted. On the day, everything flowed so well - we got a lot of compliments from our guests about how everything just seemed to happen, even... More

Had our wedding reception here 5 years ago...got into going back for anniversaries then had a bad experience so stopped going...re-tried tonight and it was back to being amazing! The staff are super-attentive but not in your face, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the food is OFF THE SCALE! Can't think of anywhere else in Leicester where you can... More

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
