Best butter chicken ever!

I've had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners at Maya, and it was the best meal in whole Nepal. Most amazing Butter Chicken Masala I've ever had in my life, and it's really not that expensive comparing to other restaurants in Pokhara.

We sat upstairs, which overlooked the main road so you could people watch. The bar do really good 2 for 1 cocktails at a very reasonable price, and they also provide free popcorn. The staff were lovely, and service very good. We went there both nights of our stay.

My friend and I sat on their terrace in the afternoon sun. We ordered plain rice, mixed vegetable raita, butter masala chicken, and garlic rotis. All of the above were very good and we felt a really good deal for the taste and the atmosphere/ location of the restaurant (less expensive than comparable restaurants on the same street).

They have 2 bars/restaurants in Lakeside. If you need a comfy bar with good food you could do a LOT worse than visit here. Beautiful building, good food, attentive staff.

We were chasing a clay oven naan which is why we ended up here. A place we otherwise wouldn't have looked twice at. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere and really great curry and naan!! Only downfall was the awful bathroom.

You cannot go wrong ordering continental or Nepali food in Lakeside, Pokhara. This is one of the restaurants I proved that at.

Went here for a reprieve from our Dal Bhat and Curry marathon. Was very nice, we had club sandwich and chicken burger on one occasion and a club sandwich and chicken curry on another time. Both meals were great, ingredients were clean and fresh, their menu is extensive as is their bar menu and they make great coffee.
