“580 Hay St”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Visit Maya Masala at 580 Hay St, quieter during lunch hours and serves the Thali - which is home style.

“Fantastic early dinner!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We popped in to the restaurant after walking past at 4.30 pm on a cold Sunday afternoon and we could not resist the smell of the yummy food! Fantastic restaurant, marvellously clean and tastefully decorated. The food was every bit as good as it smelled. And so reasonably priced. We are so pleased to have found this wonderful restaurant and we will be back!

“Truly fantastic Indian food”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We are Brits, well travelled in India, and we hadn't heard good things about Indian restuarants in Australia. However, we stumbled across this place and had a truly fantastic vegetarian meal. I highly recommend it - as good as any Indian resturants we have found in the world.

“Yum, yum, yum. Could have eaten more...”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Some of the nicest Indian food I have eaten in a long time (apart from at home or with friends!). We shared a delicious masala dosa (vegetarian) for entree, which was served with delicious curry sauce and fresh coconut 'raita'. It was beautifully presented and golden and crispy. I was longing for another but, unfortunately like most Aussie restaurants these days, they rely a lot on student and transient (young tourist) labour which results in rather patchy service. Comprehension issues, lack of real dedication or knowledge about the restaurant etc tend to lead to delays in service and mistakes. E.g. we ordered 3 chais over the course of the meal, but only two arrived (and only two were charged happily). The water was plentiful though, which was appreciated, not because the curries were too hot, just because WA can be!
Our mains were our usual combination of dhal, veggi and meat curries with spiced rice and naan. All yummy, generally a more south indian bent than your usual punjab fare. Apart from the dodgy service (which all told, wasn't that bad), the only other slight negative was that a few of the dishes/drinks were a little on the cool side, but perhaps I like things pretty hot compared to many people, it seems.
Regarding my ratings below - it's a big space and would be great for big get-togethers, but also has nice benched seats along the sides which are reasonably conducive to cosiness.
Refreshingly affordable compared to many WA prices.

“Yummy Indian curries”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I may sound partial towards Maya Masala because I am originally from India and adore Indian dishes.Needless to say that my wife is a great cook when it comes to Indian dishes. I have been here one too many times and cannot get enough.It is one great place for the family to enjoy a healthy and delicious meal. Go Maya Go Masala.
