The service was very good and extremely friendly. Love that you can take your own alcohol. Wasn't as cheap as I thought it was going to be but portions are massive!

If you like to take your own beer and don't mind a crowd and rather basic decor and service this popular Chinese restaurant is for you. Having seen, over the years that this place was always busy at weekends (you have to book to get a table at a reasonable time) and that a number of their regulars are Oriental... More

Have just enjoyed yet another excellent meal at Mayfair - crispy duck to start followed by 3 chicken dishes and 2 fried rice between 4 of us - absolutely plentiful and so tasty. All washed down with our own alcohol making the bill extremely reasonable for such quality food. Michael is really friendly and welcoming and I can't wait to... More

The food is very fresh and tasty and the meat dishes are served with lots of vegetables. We had the duck in plum sauce for main and it... More

I go to the Mayfair several times a year and can honestly say I have never had a bad meal. Michael remembers you and also remembers how you like your food - I recently went here with my friend and her children as it's become a Christmas tradition to take them to the Mayfair which they love. Michael remembered I... More

We went into this restaurant as it was recommended to us and near to where we were staying. The place felt cold and we were shown to a table by the door which didn't help. The chicken and sweetcorn soup was piping hot and tasted as I expected it to. Having had our bowls cleared away our plates for the... More
