Great food, great value

I had visited this place a few years back and the food was great. I went back recently and the food was just as good as before and the place as nice and relaxing as before. The early bird offer between 5pm and 7:30 pm makes the place extremely good value for money. Good experience, very much... read more

The service was attentive and welcoming and the environment comfortable enough but the food, whilst reasonably attractive to the eye, was not a winner for the palate. The sheik kebab had no spice whatsoever and was completely tasteless. The lamb in the curry was poor quality (despite the enticing menu description) and the vegetable dansak pretty mushy. The wine list... More

We had been craving a curry for ages and living in Surbiton we'd always ordered takeaways but on this evening fancied going out. Maya was only a 5-10 minute walk from the station and from the menu the prices looked reasonable. It was a freezing day and we were welcomed in by the really friendly staff who were just great...

We have ordered from here a few times as it is one of the few places nearby that deliver. Every time we are disappointed as the food is really quite tasteless. We've ordered a few different dishes off the menu and unfortunately they all just taste a bit watered down. Maybe we've just been unlucky, but we probably won't try... More

We always have a great meal/experience this time with friends, we had 6 guests and we all ordered different mains and each was stunning, fresh and not greasy like some similar restaurants can be. I will not eat this cuisine anywhere else and we often laugh about what we would do if we moved house...i think it will be Surbiton... More

There is quite a bit of competition in the immediate area so you are spoilt for choice, decor wise this place is a pleasant place to be. The prices are as you'd expect, not cheap but def not expensive. The main reason for my average rating was that the chicken in my main was a bit tough and dry with... More

We loved eating here, it wasn't very busy compared to the other Indian restaurants near by and we just can't figure out why. The food here was delicious and the staff bent over backwards to help us and see if we had everything we needed. The atmosphere was very upmarket even though the food is reasonably priced. Will definitely return!

Enjoyed the food, loved the ambience and friendly staff. If you love the finer things in life then go here! The food is extraordinarily good, one of the best. The portion size are good and the flavours are incredible, I couldn't stop eating. Great value for money for the quality of food and service!

Visited Maya recently with friends. Been living in the Area for the past 15 years and thought give it a try. Food was below average for the prices charged. Service by the waiters was poor with lack of communictaion skills. The best thing about the place was the decor and table settings. As an Asian , would i go again... More
