Just finished visiting Mayfair Chinese restaurant after looking online for a Chinese restaurant in Nottingham. Mayfair appeared in the top 3 so I just decided to take my partner there. The food is amazing, really tasty and fresh and I would recommend to everyone to try it. Definitely come back again :) 5 star experience!!

This was our first visit to Mayfair & we went on the strength of the TripAdvisor reviews. So glad we did, don't be put off by the basic look, it's busy for a reason. Enjoyed all of our dishes, especially the Singapore vermicelli noodles and the crispy shredded beef. Freshly cooked, hot, good flavour and nice & spicy too. Portions... More

I'm a huge foodie and have eaten in some pretty amazing restaurants over the years. The food in Mayfair is simply amazing, best Chinese in Nottingham by far! I loved it and it won't be long before I'm back!

My wife and I have been visiting the Mayfair often on our wedding anniversay since the late 80's. I can't believe I haven't taken the time to put in words just what a gem of a place this is. The food is simple but tastes way better than many much dearer chinese resturants in the city and the fact that... More

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.
