We shared some guacole to start which was really good. I tried the lamb fajitas based on a recommendation from the waiter and they were excellent! Very good flavor, lots of food, more than I could finish and I don't like to leave food on my plate. My coworkers tried the duck breast and the chicken enchiladas and both really... More

I've been to Maya on several occasions for brunch and dinner. While most of everything I've had is great, brunch by far is the best value and delicious. Some reviews have called Maya expensive, and you can rack up quite a bill with a large group, but brunch seems right on the money. Great ambiance and good service.

We stopped for a light supper and enjoyed cold beers and a delicious taco salad. Despite the evident rush and call for tables we were not pushed out quickly. All the food that passed us from the open kitchen looked amazing. Bit hard to find, but if your taxi can get you to the gate the guard will point you... More

Best guacamole and tortilla chips in China. Ceviche was delicious, margarita pitcher is the way to go. If you are a spicy lover must try the home habanero sauce. The carne asada and skirt steak are great! Chocolate lava cake and warm churros are to die for!

Been there a couple of times now. I love south american food, and Maya excel in this. Very good wine card as well, you have to expect a premium price for Shanghai (~200 RMB/pers min.) I always enjoy going back there as I know I will have great food in an very nice atmosphere.

This place is hidden, located in a apartment complex , but definitely worth to discover. Many times ranked as one of the bust brunches in shanghai, we wanted to try it. Great atmosphere and service. We will come back to try once their dinner, as the dishes have been great and are looking like there is more to see aside... More

One of the strongest waiting staffs I've seen in Shanghai... all competent, capable, and well-trained. And of course I'm a regular for brunch!

This is the first Mexican place I have been to that I would consider snobby. They didn't want to seat us because we didn't have a reservation, on a weekend, with the place pretty much empty. Finally my Chinese friend convinced the waiter. I guess a guy in a hoodie and some university students don't apply to their "dress code."... More

We dined here on Saturday night. We made a last minute reservation on a rainy night in crowded Shanghai. Wow! From the moment we entered the warm glow of the foyer and greeted by the Maître D we were thrust into one of the most superb eating experiences we have had anywhere in the world. The choice of wines was... More
