I'm surprised at the previous reviews. After visiting this restaurant twice (once in July), the only negatives about this restaurant are the two nasty hostesses. The food is always delicious and we have had very attentive & helpful wait staff. It is the "hot spot" so dress accordingly - and you absolutely need a reservation. We had the duck for... More

Worst place I have been to in monaco at least In the Japanese section. First it looks has been like an mid 90s NYC lounge. Second the food is awful. Sushi set was slightly above average. Rock shrimp tasted like anything besides rock shrimp. Main course tuna was tasteless and the quality of the beef was also below average. I... More

Good asian food but not very original if compared to some great restaurants in big cities like London. Overall quiet cool idea of two sections (one japanese and one thai). Good food but not mind blowing. Great atmosphere though with a really cool decor. Quiet expensive but this is Monaco and also compared to other asian restaurants (Buddha Bar, Nobu,... More

Maya Bay Japanese beautiful setting, good food, but less good service. Staff are polite, friendly but wait to be called to assist or service, not as expected for this prestigious restaurant. The experience repeated itself twice within two weeks so we do not regard it as exceptional. Attempted to make a reservation for the following day for the Thai but... More

The setting is spectacular the service splendid and the dishes beet the first two. Fir a Thai novice you will be pleased that the menu is a photo menu where you... More

This decor of red and black with crystal chandeliers is indeed intriguing. This chic and expensive Thai and Japanese resto draws the wealthy Monaco crowd, and the food is good, prepared by chef Ping. But the evening was warped by excessively loud music. Eating oriental to Barry White blaring was not great, we asked them to turn it down several... More

We went to the Thai version of the resto decorated in heavy leathery furniture with an original green screen of tropical plants to the garden side. An opening drink mix with sake is proposed by the friendly statt, the extensive menu i simpressive with its starters, main courses, desserts all photographed and displayed in the annex.

After reading what other people were saying here on Tripadvisor, I had really high expectations about this place. In the end, it turned out to be quite disappointing. It’s true, the food is good and the decoration is beautiful, but I’ rather go somewhere with an overall greater atmosphere. Service was extremely poor since the waiter was rushing us to... More
