Visited Mayfair with a large group of friends and was really pleasantly surprised. I've driven down Mansfield Road hundreds of times and never even noticed Mayfair, and to be honest, it's not much to look at from the outside and please don't expect too much from the interior either! The food and service however are cracking! We opted to have... More

I've been here many times and never had a bad meal. It's very good value for money and the food is the best Chinese food that I've tasted. I've taken many friends here and they've gone back too. Michael the manager is very obliging. Go on, give it a try.

Been a few times and never disappointed, great food, plenty to choose from and never had a bad meal. Defiantly worth a visit if you like good quality Chinese food at a great price. My only criticism would be staff communication with the customer although the manager is spot on.

My family have been going to The Mayfair for ever because the food is great, very consistent, prices are good, Mai the owner and Head Waiter knows his customers well, he has many many regulars. The service is friendly, they can cope with huge parties. I bring lots of out of towners here and they always ask to go back... More

A large group of us met up recently and enjoyed a superb meal. Some friends had never been to the restaurant before and they, like us, were overwhelmed with the standard of food we were served. There was more food than we could eat, it was extremely well cooked and delicious and piping hot. The restaurant was busy when we... More

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
