Good Fusion Mexican Food

Atmosphere is warm and friendly. Casual but comfortable. The food is served very quickly. The chips, dips, and sauce are quite tasty. You will find all the usual Mexican dishes, good food, and great place for gathering.

From time of entering until leaving the restaurant, attentive service and great food/drinks!! Enchiladas and Carne Asada were both made to perfection. Waitress stopped by to check on us and restaurant manager as well!! Bit on the pricy-side, but value for money! Definitely recommended and will come back once I return to Shanghai!!

One of my work colleagues initially told me about Maya, and after checking out the reviews on Trip Advisor, came here with my fiancee during a visit to Shanghai in April. The only complaint I'd have about the restaurant is that the location is off the beaten path, and can be difficult to find. It's hidden in an apartment complex,... More

Very tasty Mexican food. Loads of delicious options available and the food with well presented in good portions. The only negative aspect of Maya was that the service was rather slow

The very large and spacious restaurant is inside this residential compound so it's not exactly somewhere you'll just walk in from off the street. But if you're looking to try some different brunch options besides your standard eggs benedict, look no further! It's not authentic Mexican food but more like authentic Tex-Mex and it is SOLID.

The restaurant is located inside a compound on Julu Lu. They have a small lounge at the entrance of the restaurants. Grab a drink there before you move the table. The food is really good. It's spicy, it's Mexican. It's very nice place for dinner with friends. I love the atmosphere: the restaurant is not too dark or too bright.... More

The food here is the answer to all your Mexican cravings.It's fresh and the menu has enough options even for a vegetarian! The ambience is contemporary but the food is certainly traditional by taste. The service is prompt and the staff is warm. Certainly a good experience and a must visit when in Shanghai.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
