10 Reasons to Visit us in Leicester During our 10 Year Anniversary Celebrations

This year we’re excited to be celebrating our tenth birthday. After winning gold in Visit England’s Taste of England category earlier in the year this has been a fantastic twelve months for our team. To celebrate we’ve organised some treats so that everyone can join in the festivities. Here are our top ten reasons to come and visit us in Leicester for our tenth anniversary celebrations!


  1. A free drink on us

We’re sharing the love with a free bottle of Prosecco for every table of four that dines from our a la carte menu, Monday to Friday throughout August and September 2015. All you need to do is quote ‘MAIYANGO IS 10′ when booking and we will do the rest. Cheers!


  1. Cocktails and canapé evenings

We’ve enjoyed indulging in pleasant evenings in the Glass Bar and Terrace this summer as we launched our ‘Cocktail& Canapé’ nights. Our next evening is on Friday 18th September. Tickets are just £15 and include 3 cocktails per person. Come and enjoy panoramic views of the city and Jubilee Square, live music and a relaxed, magical atmosphere.


  1. Seasonal menus to impress

As always we have seasonal menus featuring inspirational, fresh local produce with a touch of Eastern flair. To see what’s new, view our food and drink menus here.

  1. A step back in time

Leicester is a city steeped in history, and has been in the news globally following the discovery of King Richard III’s remains. The Richard III visitor centre is the hub you need to find out everything about the once King of England. 2015 also marks the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. Explore Leicester’s connection with the ancient text with themed exhibitions and events throughout August and September.


  1. Be part of the rugby world cup

If sport is more your thing you’ll not want to miss out on the Rugby World Cup which arrives in Leicester in early October for three matches. Look out for the Rugby World Cup fan zone in Victoria Park from 3 – 11th October. For more information and tickets click here.

  1. Four courses for £25

To celebrate our Visit England award (as well as our birthday of course) Head Chef Salvatore Tassari has designed an exclusive 4 course tasting menu, showcasing the kitchen’s culinary talents for just £25 per person. Make the most of this special offer Sunday to Thursday – the perfect excuse for a midweek treat! View the menu here.


  1. Shopping

It’s no secret that one of our favourite places to shop is Leicester’s market. It’s Europe’s largest covered market and has been voted Britain’s favourite. However, you’ll also find a diverse selection of shops from the highstreet’s best in the Highcross and to boutique, niche stores in the side streets and arcades of our wonderful city.

  1. Cocktail making classes

After all that retail therapy, why not give a cocktail class a go? The ideal addition to a girl’s weekend! Our cocktail masterclasses can be tailored especially for your group, or make an extra special date idea.
