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.

I liked the food and service of this restaurant - we had California style burrito. Impressive interiors. I was bit disappointed on their leche flan - the serving was good for two but it was too pricey, perhaps that's why it wasn't listed in the menu?

All in all, this place is not bad. Unfortunately I come from Los Angeles where we actually know what Mexican food is. To be honest I expected more from a restaurant of the famed Abaca group. Food- mediocre at best, not passable if you are Mexican. Service- Average, even by Philippine standards. Decor- The only standout was the door, everything... More

I love the interior of this restaurant. Very creative. Something different. Very relaxing. I checked in at Foursquare when I went there and saw reviews on their Mojitos. I tried it and it was okay. I have tried better mojitos. Comparing the prices of their drinks to bars in Manila, their imported bottles of beer are quite cheap. Definitely a... More

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

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
