As my eldest daughter is vegan, it's challenging finding a restaurant that caters well for both vegans & non-vegans. Mayfair Chinese restaurant does this perfectly & with ease. Michael (I think his name is) was hospitable right from the point of my telephone booking. On the night he was extremely friendly & helpful & pointed out the dishes that were... More

My dad has always taken us here and that is due to the tasty food, good value and great service. Mike, and his helpers, always try to provide the best service even though the restaurant gets extremely busy. I am vegetarian, my parents are not, but there was a good selection for all. We had a delicious meal, that you... More

Recently visited the restaurant and had a super meal. The food was delicious and efficiently served. It is excellent value with a great atmosphere. The decor is slightly tired but certainly does not detract from the whole experience - we will certainly be back. Of course there is also the added bonus of Bring Your Own Wine!! Perfect!

We are regulars to this hidden gem on Mansfield Road Nottingham. Its not really hidden away its just that in Nottingham there are so many good restaurants and the Mayfair could get overlooked as its not in the city centre. This suits us fine, as there are large group of people who love this place. It may look like a... More

Small but very busy restaurant on handy bus route, no frills but excellent food and lots of it at a good and reasonable price. Friendly and efficient staff. Bring your own drinks means your not paying inflated prices for bottles of vinegar. Lost count of how many times I have been and look forward to many more

The Mayfair is my favourite chinese restaurant. Don't go if you want a fancy restaurant or a swanky night out, as it is basic as they come. The food however is spot on. Bring your own wine, your favourite friends and a great night will be had by all. Booking is advisable or queue if you don't mind waiting.

Had a fantastic meal here with friends , all of the food was cooked perfectly , can't fault the seaweed, ribs , prawns I could go on but basically everything was delicious . The duck in orange was outstanding, you need to take your own alcohol as they don't have a license. Staff friendly and courteous, can't recommend the restaurant... More

I have lived in Nottingham nearly 7 years, how have I not been here before?!? My friend has been coming here for 25 years and I can certainly see why. I chose the 'Paradise Platter' for starter, at £4 what a bargain!! For main we went for Crispy Chilli Beef, Kun Po Chicken, Sweet & Sour Chicken Cantonese Style with... More

I have been going to mayfair since I was a child. The food is delicious and fairly priced. portion sizes are great, we always have lots left over. Bring your own alcohol is great and there is a off licence next door! The only downside to this restaurant is that more and more people are finding out about it!

Thank makeshya
