2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was seated promptly and ordered fajitas con pollo (chicken). It was not very good. If you are from the USA don't expect the same. The chicken had no flavor. The mashed avocado was very watery. The sliced veggies were good.

The restaurant was nice and service was friendly. Food is tasty (a little simple dishes though) and no long waiting times although the place was almost full when we entered. Reasonably priced as well.

Had family dinner after a movie. Got table at terrace. Nice options on menu. Beef was under cooked not medium like asked Food was good. More salsa might have been nice. Service was not even average, attitude wasn't right at all. Overall feeling was anyway positive

I ate feta/avokado tortilla. Basic food (cheap) but I did't fancy it. Atleast got my stomach full. About service- nothing to mention.

Yes, unfortunately the reviews below are true with respect to service. It is atrocious even by the low Finnish standards. No doubt it has to do with the frosty climate that they have to endure almost all year long. The place was not too busy, yet it took a5 minutes for some one to come and take the order. The... More

We were pleasantly surprised on our visit to Maya on Saturday. Really good food for an affordable price. The small appetizers are really nice, but most of all, it was the swordfish main course that exceeded our expectations. Really succulent.
