Unfortunately, a unique restaurant like Mayas which used to be known for good food is now known for being a restaurant in breach of Law 174 (Prohibiting indoor smoking). Mayas created it's own jurisprudence by dividing it's already tiny restaurant into a non smoking Ground floor and a smoking mezzanine floor both connected with the same air staircase etc. It used to be one of our favorite places however it is a place that we do not go to anymore as while you eat your Armenian food, the stench of cigarettes and cigars invades the already-so-tiny place with very low ceilings. A word to the wise and those who care for their Health and well being, there are other restaurants with amazing Armenian food and entirely non smoking just a stone throw away.

You have to have the Following when you go: Armenian salad, the eggplant Koussa with yogurt and they have this cheese Mille fielle thing that's amazing like melt in your mouth cheese t was just sooooo good honest! I'm going back again This trip it's also decently priced

We visited this place last month and it was really nice and delicious. We loved the fattoush, the potato and cherry kafta everything was well presented. The music was extraordinary played by a young guitarist playing romantic songs. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone interested to taste the orientale food with a twist .

Armenian delicacies to die for... the Soujouk and Chesse pastry was excellent and the Manti superb... The ambience is super especially when friends are around ...there used to be an old guitarist who was also a good addition to sing those old armenian and lebanese classics...but didnt see him the last time we went there..... Lovely restaurant indeed
