Being that the Maitrea is my daughter's favorite stop for chai, we ventured to this eatery for a mid-week lunch. Both my husband and I, confirmed meat lovers, were a little leery of eating an a completely vegetarian restaurant, but Maitrea proved to be a pleasant surprise. Located off a small narrow street within a few minutes of Old Town Square the interior was a welcome change from the gritty exterior. Being very busy upstairs the hostess took us downstairs into a beautifully decorated lower level. Service was not immediate, but catch the attention of the waitress quickly after being seated and the service became paced to our expectations. The portions were not huge, but adequate and very tasty -- the chicken paella truly tasted as if there was chicken included in the dish. This restaurant is also smoke free and takes CASH only, no credit cards.
