Description: Maya was created to be a casual restaurant and tequila lounge: laid back and subtle, with efficient service and reasonably priced. The sophisticated yet casual allure of Maya seamlessly blends old world charm with modern elegance. Succulent aromas from the kitchen mix tradition and ingenuity while setting the stage for your dining pleasure. Maya also has the largest selection of 100% pure agave tequilas in the country, which in addition to our premium house pours are sure to charm.Maya is committed to the timeless tradition of Mexican food – utilizing countless ingredients and dishes, and perhaps most importantly, the rich family tradition of preparation, which is done by hand using the freshest local ingredients that are regionally available. By embracing both Mexican tradition and local sensibility, we offer a creatively classic cuisine that unites well-known Mexican street food from the stalls of Mexico City and family dishes from the coast of the Mayan Riviera and the inventiveness of the Hispanic American communities of California and the American Southwest.

July 19, 2014 The staff was very attentive. My wife ordered an enchilada that was over spiced and could not eat it. My son in-law ordered carne asada fajita and was perfect. My daughter and I ordered carne asada burritos Classic California style that was so over powered with rice they had no flavor. I was disappointed with the Maya... More

Living in the Philippines tex-mex type food is hard to find but at the Maya it's a dream come true. Delicious guacamole, burritos, enchiladas, we enjoyed everything we tasted! I would highly recommend it!

Great environment for a relaxed meal with friends. Wide range of Mexican dishes and drinks - try the guacamole, it's excellent! The service was also very good indeed; our waiter made sure I got my cocktail made just as I had asked. My friends and I spend a long time chatting and relaxing and never once felt hurried or pressed... More

Great ambience and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Like most people I have not been to Mexico to have authentic Mexican food but regardless of that fact I still enjoyed our dinner there. The mojitos were good but I really enjoyed their margaritas even more. The bloody Maria was good too but that would have been more appropriate... More

From appetizer to main course, their range of food is great. We went here as a group and had exceptional service. Food is a bit pricey but good. The place is clean and relaxing. My personal favorite is the carne asada which was surprisingly good. Will definitely come back to try more of their food choices.

Been to hundreds of Mexican restaurants in my life ranging from Mexico City, San Antonio and LA, but I'd place this one in the top five for the quality of the food and the overall dining experience. The guacamole was heavenly. The pork carnitas was succulent but also tasty. The carne asada was surprisingly tender steak, more like tenderloin than... More

I went here with my husband who is Mexican, and has not been home for 4 years. He did not have high expectations as most "mexican" places serve nasty tex-mex nonsense. I was really hoping otherwise. We had mojitos to drink which were on special on Mondays, its also been a while since i had fresh mint, so we were... More
