I visited the place with a colleague, for dinner after a long working day. We were greeted by a friendly waiter, and given a wide selection of tables to chose from. The menu is tex-mex, so we went for a meat taco as starter and a pepper/chili beef as the main course. The recommended wine was going very well with... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Helsinki, right next to the main railway station. The food tastes delicious and is affordable. One downside is that one can not book a table and the place is very popular, so it is a bit of a gamble whether there is a table for you. You can, however, always wait at the bar... More

Excellent location, always crowded and good service. Observe their table reservation regulations! (No reservations can be made Fridays after 17 or Saturdays at all!) Nachos ala Maya, Fahitas pechuga de pollo, Pollo Chimichurri , Churros Social, Tarta maya. Along with Corona beer. Excellent! Easy going "surroundings", "mexican style" decor, reasonable prices. Love it.

We spent three nights in Helsinki and ate here on the first night. They have many excellent choices and the wait staff is very friendly and speaks excellent English.

My friend and I are from California where we enjoy lots of amazing, authentic Mexican food. We were traveling in Europe and it had been several weeks without our favorite, Mexican food. When walking down the street in Helsinki looking for a place to eat we saw Maya and decided to give it a try. This restaurant is terrific! We... More

3 persons. Startets OK: nachos and squid. But the chipotle dip was bland and for to dip the tiny portion of guacamole shoild have been more finely smashed i.e too big lumps. Main couses: Cuban paella, Conchita Pibil and giant shrimp tortilla were guite OK again. Nearly four points coming, but....paella rice was just ordinary long grain rice and what... More

I highly recommend this place, food is excellent, service good and not so expensive. Very popular, meaning you will not always get a table.
