Went to Maiyango for our anniversary dinner and could not have picked a better place to celebrate it! We had the 7 course taster menu with wine pairing and it was absolutely stunning. Food tasted amazing and was presented beautifully and our sever was very friendly and knowledgeable.

2nd visit, but first lunchtime experience, went for the 3 course for £20, excellent value for money , when arriving to the table the portions don't seem very big, but don't be fooled, made the mistake of ordering veg and chips for sides, don't , you wont eat it all , the flavours of ox cheek starter and suckling pig...

Maiyango is the best restaurant in the City (not the County mind). It is very good, not perfect and not full fine dining. The food is just not refined enough and the service not great to consider a star, but it could easily be bib gourmand standard. I'd certainly recommend the restaurant on a visit to the City.

Visited Maiyango last week, and will deffinetely be coming back. Great food (ox cheek to die for) nicely presented and portions were more than adequate. Tasty cocktails, cosy place and good atmosphere. live music they had on that night was just an added beneit to round off a very nice evening.

Chose Maiyango for our birthday celebration dinner with friends. The small restaurant is attractively furnished and intimate with low lighting and a few booths. The food on the 3 course festive dinner menu (£36) was well received including a particularly good roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

We're a small design agency with only 5 people and every year we try and find somewhere unique for the company Christmas do. This year we opted for Maiyango and it didn't disappoint. The food, service and surroundings were great and everyone had a great meal. The only thing I would advise is that the "booths" are a little soft... More

Maiyango is a good restaurant in Leicester with a variety of menu choices including a tasting menu. The décor is fun and there are some circular booths for intimate or family events. The food standard is good especially the starters and mains. The deserts are quite sweet and not convinced of the milk tart. The staff are attentive and friendly.... More

Group of four of us had business lunch here with only one other table in use. Starters were good: two of had the smoked salmon, the other two the squash and cumin soup. For the main course two of us had the braised shin of beef, the others had the sticky hoi sin tofu and baked hake fillet. All was... More

FANTASTIC is all I have to say. From the moment we walked in until the moment we left, it was utter perfection. The food is amazing..right up my street! The ox cheek starter was to die for and the baked hake main course was delicious. The cocktails are made with REAL ALCOHOL, not like the premixed rubbish everyone else seems... More

Visited at lunchtime and had the 3 course meal. Food tasted very good but main courses, turkey and fish, were cold. We returned them but the same plate of food was brought back 5 mins later at the same temperature. Including the two of us there were 4 other people in the restaurant so no excuses. There was no offer... More
