Hard to believe, that I was one of their last guests when I had a late lunch here on March 30th. I do hope, the new location will be announced via TripAdvisor, so people who appreciate good food will be able to find them. Even on their last day before moving I had an excellent lunch - hope they are... More

I spend a couple of months in San Cristóbal every year, and I eat here at least twice a week while I'm in town. The food is excellent: pan-Asian and a few Mexican dishes, always consistently good. It's a friendly place and the owners are delightful hosts.

This place is incredible. The flavors are unique and addicting, the price is great, the atmosphere is amazing, and the owners are sweet, friendly people. It is some of the best food I have had traveling in Central America. Well worth the trip if they decide to move outside of town!

We keep ending up there because of the consistently well prepared food. Beyond Indian (more eclectic) but they do have great samosas and lassi(s). The green curry is my personal favorite but I tried a new Vietnamese dish which is a salad with beef and a warm peanut dressing. The house wine was good too (Anataño). When friends come to... More

I brought a tour group of 8 to Mayambe. Two were vegans and they found plenty of variety to satisfy their hunger. Everyone loved the food and specialty drinks. The owners are friendly and were quick to fix an issue with one of the drinks. We tried and shared many different dishes, all were quite good. I'll bring more tours... More

The kitchen offers an interesting selection of dishes using traditional flavors but done in an... More

Had two evening meals at Mayambe in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. Not your typical Mexican fare. India, Morocco, and other countries' palates are represented here, too Each meal was memorable (meatballs/lamb and steak w/mushrooms) and enjoyable. Our friends had curries, another had Pad Thai. All were excellent. The owner, Liz, made us all very welcome and added... More

OMG we were so happy to find Mayambe - a restaurant with a very unique menu here in the middle of San Cristobal Las Casas...a yummy mix of Indian, Asian & Middle Eastern food made with super fresh local ingredients. Having lived in the Bay Area for many years...i was really surprised to find this paradise of spices. I've returned... More

Had an amazing night out at Mayambe. Food was exceptional, and had heaps of vegetarian options. Jim and Liz the owners were charming and very welcoming. The locally distilled mescals were amazing, particularly try the mocha. Great place to go for vegetarians or just a change from tacos!
