Incredible!
Amazing food. Great staff, friendly and welcoming. Lovely environment. Insane entertainment. Beautiful cello player, then a belly dancer and a saxophonist finishing up with a DJ.
The food was so goo, fresh, tasty and in good time. No complaints. Perfect girls night out. We will be back again.

I go mayhills on a regular basis, im lucky i can call it my "go to place" for amazing food. Yunus & Dilek provide the best customer service ever, they add to the mayhills experience like you wouldnt even know. Anytime your there just ask for one of them and you'll be more then alright!!!

Been coming here a while, I emailed them directly yday informing them that my wife and me had been extremely unwell after dining here Saturday, we shared all,plates ordered not even a reply back , over priced kebabs , poor service this time which I think they pride themselves on. Don’t bother with this place.


Further to this I’d like to point out they have since emailed me and apologised for this experience and invited me back which is noted/appreciated

Despite the sign at the entry no mask no entry this was essentially ignored by staff; the only people wearing masks were entering groups!

Our waitress thankfully did wear a mask. And was very helpful and charming!

But other staff were mostly mask-less in particular the front of house greeter Altho as front open where she principally stood, that is acceptable but she was inside at points am sure and was standing immediately adjacent to the aforementioned sign..!

With windows into the kitchen we could clearly also see all kitchen staff mask-less....

The tables were not socially distanced so we were sat close to neighbouring table. Other tables were free but became occupied later.

The music - dance and loud started towards the end of our meal which ruined the atmosphere as did the scantily clad other diners. I feel that more of the breasts should be covered than on view (she was not breastfeeding)! But that’s hardly the restaurant’s fault!

Food was lovely and sizeable portions! One of my party asked about sides and was told that he didn’t get any so he ordered a side salad to then find he got half a plate of sides! So good value food-wise. Cocktail was small and £10. Although delicious!

As a result we were painfully full at the end.

(We also inexplicably were delivered some fries we hadn’t ordered. We may have burst had we not sent them back!)

Will recommend to others but maybe not weekend night. And make them aware of the liberal following of infection control practices by staff so they decide if it’s worth the risk to themselves and the maskless staff.

Thoroughly enjoyed our first experience here which was a Father’s Day meal. The service was amazing, food was delicious and the portions were huge! The restaurant is very stylish and clean and had a great ambiance throughout. There was a dancer for entertainment which was enjoyed by all. Thank you for a great meal.

We went for a Father’s Day meal which was lovely. However, it was a set menu and not child friendly. I love the atmosphere, the pumping music, the entertainment from the belly dancer and the staff were excellent despite it being extremely busy. A fantastic experience.

Food was nice but service was very slow. Waiters too busy paying attention to some celebrities and forgetting that they have customers.
Very loud and not very sociable where we were sat.

Love this place! Had such a lovely meal that I tried to book again for the last day before we go into lockdown and unfortunately it was all booked up by 5 p.m that day! However it's now my second time I've been here and it won't be the last.

The prawns I had as a starter the first time, were so good I ordered them again the second time as my main meal, which they were happy to do so for me which was very nice of them. This time however the tomato sauce it was in was too salty but that wouldn't stop me ordering them again next time. There were a couple of things they didn't have on the menu, so that probably means they're very popular dishes.

It's a great restaurant that has different choices such as a big fish selection and a meat selection, some pastas etc.

The staff are extremely friendly and attentive.

The meal would not be complete however without the prosecco we ordered, which was pretty decent and the whole meal price was to be expected.

The menu has changed significantly and have to say the new menu is a significant downgrade from the old menu. Buttermilk chicken was one of the best items and it’s gone. Taramasalata is a staple Greek starter. Gone. No souvlakia anymore??

Also, the thing I loved most about this place was that it only played background music and allowed you to talk to your dinner guests. Now it was like a club. It was insanely loud. I think someone complained because they did eventually turn it down. Even then, it was still loud.

The old restaurant was much nicer. This one won’t see me return.

Very nice welcome and waiting staff. Big portions of food, our mains - chicken shish and pasta. Monday (31/8) was very busy due to 'eat out to help out' so a bit of noise was expected. Seemed to be a youngish crowd. Played some good latest tunes. I had booked it a week beforehand. The staff didn't know about the free glass of Prosecco deal via OpenTable but eventually one of the waiters said it would be okay to give us a free glass. We were told we would have to leave the table after an hour and a half because the table was needed for a private party which was disappointing and checking back on OpenTable it states 2 hours for four people. So there is a miscommunication somewhere. Overall good experience and would visit again with friends.

As soon as your foot enters this restaurant- you are greeted with lovely smiles, warm, inviting conversation. (The lady on reception was brilliantly funny and gave grace rapport) We were quickly asked to fill in track & trace, sanitised our hands and shown to our table.
The food/drinks and ambiance could not be faulted. Service was quick and efficient.
Love the people.
Love the food.
Love the decor.
