Curry was fresh heaps of flavour perfectly spicy great chicken, came with rotti and delicious fresh side salad. Milkshake was cold and good. Attentive service and nice location out of hustle and bustle of the old town.

It's a good place, in a quiet area of the town. But it's a bit pricy for the drinks in my opinion. The food is very good, but you only get a burger and no fries or anything to go with. So in my opinion for a smoothie and a burger without fries 60 kuai is quite expensive. But then... More

I've been traveling in Asia for 8 months, and that is the best pizza i've eaten so far. Its home made and delicious. Breakfast is also good

Many veggie options including curry, veggie burger, salads, etc. very reasonably priced. Comfortable seating upstairs. Highest cleanliness rating we've seen so far in China. My americano was a large cup, fresh, and made how I asked (22). I added close ups of sections of the menu to photo section.

Good vibe, food is reasonably priced and delicious, and the owners are very nice people. Great service and quality food. The owner tells us that he uses filtered water to prepare food, which I believe, given how high quality the ingredients in the dishes are. He even gave us a little sample of experimental food he was making for free... More

The service is friendly and the food is decent, but there are quite a number of truly outstanding restaurants in Lijiang (e.g. V Sherry or Rice Slurp). Not a bad restaurant, but not at all worthy of its ranking on Trip Advisor.

Our family loves eating at the Maya and we almost always take our visitors to eat there as well. Great menu selection, excellent flavors and true authentic Indian food. We love the Butter Chicken Marsala (ask for extra Roti!), the Burgers and the Pizzas and you HAVE to have a cup of Chai with your meal. The coffee is high... More

I happened to come across this place when I was strolling through some of the beautiful quieter spots of Old town Li Jiang. Gorgeous structure among a serene backdrop. Maya's authentic flavours of India made my mum & I feel like we had momentarily traveled home for dinner, which was refreshing after many weeks of eating local foods. The owner... More

Ist not only the excellent Indian food and the very friendly and helpful owner and his kind wife, which let me feel at home. If you are tired about blaring local travel groups, "hello, hello laowei shouting", pushing and pulling in the busy Old Town streets of Lijiang, then this small restaurant feels like heaven. Close the door behind you,... More
