This place has good food and good ambiance. I visited here because of a friend's birthday. Surprisingly, the food were all well presented and well seasoned. One downside is that we had to take a cab to get to this place. Try this place if you're craving for Mexican food while in Shanghai.

I live in Shanghai and its safe to say Maya is one of the top experiences of this city. Absolutely fantastic and interesting food. Great ambiance and terrific service. Location is a bit strange inside an apartment compound but once inside all that is forgotten by warm welcomes and a great Margaritas. Try the Maya Casserole and the turkey tamales.... More

Really good nouveau Mexican food in Shanghai. We went based upon a recommendation and were very pleasantly surprised as we have not found good Mexican style food in China. We ordered tacos off the brunch menu, ended up ordering more, and then topped it all off with churros. Not much english spoken, but not necessary and this place is out... More

We ordered a lot of the appetisers as main course like the quesedillas which was also nice. What i missed was a nachos selection.... they and chips... More

This pretends to a fine dining mexican restaurant in Shanghai on tripadvisor especially when you read reviews related to the same. In real life its an upmarket (but not luxury) mexican restaurant with a good menu and great tasting Mexican food which is better than the regular Mexican "Nachos Supreme" kind of casual joint. It has innovative dining options and... More

Maya is not only good, but great. Although a bit tricky to find, it has a great atmosphere (it is located above an apartment complex clubhouse). Their Killer Margherita is a perfect blend and they have lots of tequila choices. They have a habanero sauce that is truly spicy. I recommend the jalapeño bean dip for a starter.
