Long time since we have been to Maiyango, but decided to treat my parter for her birthday. At first glance the standard is still up there with the best Leicester has to offer. Having said this it's clear that they have had to cut back. Portion sizes seem to have been reduced and their service was a little slow. This... More

I have stayed & dined at this restaurant/ boutique hotel a few times & can honestly say it is the best place to eat/ stay in the city. We were lucky enough to stay in the Bridal suite & it was pure luxury. Can't wait to stay again. The atmosphere is truly unique & transports you immediately into another world.... More

Having eaten here several times here before and was impressed , we decide to book on a Saturday night and take along a couple of friends as it coincided with our wedding anniversary. Well what a different experience this was very overcrowded and so noisy not intimate or cosy as it used to be even though we booked a booth... More

I visited maiyango with a couple of friends for a catch up and some gorgeous food! We were even lucky enough to reserve a lovely cosy booth. The soft lighting and rich furnishings make the perfect atmosphere for intimate dining (or a good catch up with old friends!). The food was absolutely delicious! So many tastes and colours and the...

Spent another fabulous evening in Hotel Maiyango last night. The food was once again excellent and was enjoyed with good wines and great cocktails. The unrushed service is second to none in a very friendly, comfortable environment. Thank you everyone, see you again soon.

I've always wanted to try this restaurant as the reviews have been good so I went on Friday 27th March. All I can say is don't believe the hype. The food is way overpriced and the portions miniscule. The starter was bland (some vegetable arrangement with beetroot) and the main course was tasteless and was an odd combination of flavours... More

After my third faultless visit in two weeks it's about time I left a review! Maiyango restaurant has a cosy, intimate atmosphere - the perfect escape in Leicester. I've dined with friends, family and as a couple and would highly recommend. The food has wowed each time. My favourite dishes are the duck and king scallops with pork. Cocktails are... More

I came for dinner at Maiyango with a friend last week, I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have had. We had the 3 course menu which was excellent value for the quality of food you get. The resturant itself is really nice, it has a great atmosphere and the staff were so friendly and... More

Had a great night at Maiyango on Valentine's night, with a fantastic bellini to welcome as we walked in the door, followed by a fantastic tasting menu. I couldn't fault any of the courses. The service was spot on, there when you needed them, unobtrusive otherwise. I don't know of anywhere in Leicester that comes close to this place. Try... More
