There are plenty of choices for Indian meals in Surbiton, but we decided to try the Maya this time. We started of with popadoms which were lovely and came with an array of dipping sauces, which included some coconut cream which was so delicious. I would return solely for that! The main dishes were plentiful and full of flavour and... More

Tuesday 26th August, we met some friends in the Black Lion, Surbiton for a few drinks and a catch up before eating somewhere local. The pub is a friendly pub, a real local, have been in a few times recently, but does not appear on Tripadvisor to review, however worth a visit and the food looks good and reasonably priced.... More

Nice enough staff. Decor ok. Nice big and airy. But didn't get correct starter order. Curry very poor. Bland. Will not visit again.

What a shame. Large restaurant, polite, smart, attentive staff BUT ...the dullest, blandest Indian food I can remember. Last two visits so disappointing ...Dhal was thin and bland as if it had been watered down. Onion Bhajis dry, chewy and tasteless. Coconut rice extremely sweet. Mint sauce thin and over sweet. Chicken ok but under seasoned . Hard to believe... More

Postives: + Good atmosphere + Good attentive staff + Decent portions Negatives - Bland food, chef literally did not add salt - Very little chilli, doesn't help when the food is bland with no salt - I possibly saw something I shouldn't have, eaten chutneys weren't thrown away but put to the side, could indicate food recycling. If this is... More

The title says it all. One of the best Indian restaurant experience I can remember. The warm welcome as we entered the restaurant was great and the staff seated us to a large round table. The restuarant is very spacious as I like it and is beautifully decorated. We found the manager to be very helpful and suggested some great... More

There is a very wide choice of dishes available on the menu at Maya restaurant. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. I opted for poppadoms to start followed by onion bhajis then a superb breast of chicken Madras curry with a Peshwari nan - each element of the meal was well presented and tasted divine, especially washed down with...

Been here a few times now, food is good, staff are attentive without being overbearing, restaurant is spacious and well laid out, only slight ( and it is a slight comment rather than a negative) is that when a sizzling dish comes out, there seems to be no extraction, so it can get a bit chokey near the tables by...

When it first opened Maya was good. Now it's lost its way. All the curries are like pureed babyfood - mush! And the place is invariably empty. Clearly the good people of SURBITON are voting with their feet. Rightly so.
