Came for breakfast but had to wait a rather long time before the cook arrived and made our breakfast. Staff didn't seem to speak English. Only cook or manager.

We ate at Maya's often. It is the only place I felt like it was safe to have a salad. Everything I ate there was good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Maya's.

Sailo and Maya run this beautiful outpost of India. Very simple but flavourful menu, lovingly prepared. Restaurants are tough to find in Lijiang, so call them or visit their website. Just follow the stream leading to the Black Dragon Pool, and keep a look out on the right, they are in the 2nd row of buildings.

Clean, restful location with extremely friendly owners. The home-cooked Indian food is not to be missed; each curry is authentic, tastes different and can be adjusted to taste, with accompanying rotis, puris and rice being equally as good. Western food is good too (especially the Oreo Cheesecake) and the coffee is excellent. We visited twice, bringing friends with us after... More

This is indeed a hard to find place tucked at a corner of the old Lijiang town. It is operated by an Indian couple. When a Malaysian expatriate in Lijiang brought us there, I was wondering, curries in China?', sounds strange. The interior of the restaurant is surprisingly cozy. Try the chicken masala and the masala tea. To my surprise,... More

Maya is a little hard to find (if you go by some of the reviews on TA that is). Just go to Maya's website and it couldn't be easier to find. Dare I say best Indian food in China?!? Add in the impeccable service and this place is a no brainer.

I ate there with my girlfriend and we had a blast. We ordered the butter chicken masala and the ultimate burger, both were wonderful. The mis of the place was also very pleasant.

Food was enjoyable after many days of Chinese food. Ordered the chickpea curry with roti. Large portion and came with a delicious side salad. The owner was friendly and service was prompt.

Haven't had a juicy homestyle bacon cheeseburger and fresh steak fries in a long time. Scrumptious! Friendly service and wifi too. On the way to black dragon pool, it's worth the 30 second detour for a real latte and real cheesecake. Will be back and tell others!
