The food was okay, but reminded me of food I ate in the 1980s at Chinese restaurants. Service was very mixed.

Having recently discovered the Mayfair, I couldn't believe that I hadn't eaten here before. The food is well priced and very tasty. The salt and pepper squids are excellent. The service is great too. The place is a little tired, decor wise, however don't let this put you off. Quality Chinese food, well done!

When you are looking around the inside of the restaraurant forget rather dated decor, look at how busy it is. This tells you how good the food is. I love this place, always go for hot and sour soup, Szechuan chicken and a bowl of fried rice to share between 4 of us. And to be frank I am always... More

One was that they added sweat chilli ribs & they were so nice. I know what I'm having next time I go. It's not... More

The food here is really good, every time. The servers are pleasant and always make you welcome. Need to book in advance as it gets busy (because it's great). Good value, and it's bring your own drinks and no corkage fee.

We used to go to the Mayfair when we were students more than 20 years ago. Apart from the place having a bit of a makeover, nothing much has changed. The Mayfair still has no licence (bring your own wine) still serves traditional Chinese food and is still great for groups. Relatively cheap and still very cheerful. It's also still... More
