It starts with a trip advisor search for Mexican food in Shanghai and a recommendation from a friend. Scrolling through the ill lit photos on trip advisor, it looks like a gamble, and we have a second destination with directions on the ready. The car pulls up to a gated residential community and again, a gamble. With no zoning laws... More

I visited this place for a Sunday Lunch in May 2014 and I'm planning to go there soon again. I’m still thinking about those churros!

Been awhile since I have been to Maya so I thought of giving it another try. Started off with a pitcher of margaritas. Had the shrimp-crab cakes, which were OK but not great. The jalapeño bean dip was was fantastic and not too hot. I had the short rib carne asado, which was really good. My wife had the lamb... More

Loved the atmosphere, loved the service. Some dishes were better than others - I was disappointed by the ceviche and the salmon tacos - but the good ones, man, they were REALLY good. The duck entree was amazing, and the churros for dessert are a must. Tequila flights and sangria pitchers also make for a fun evening. And our server... More

Maya is a wonderful Mexican restaurant. The food is delicious. I had the Argentine beef with roasted potatoes and it food was devine. It is a higher end restaurant but the value is there. The first time it's difficult to find, but keep looking for it, you won't be dissapointed.

Never fails to please. Ribs are good as are the standard mexican staples. Especially like the casserole which has a little kick. Washed down with a jug of sangria or margarita. Nice busy atmosphere
