My friends and I spent a lovely time here at Maya. The food was very good, and we really like the margaritas.

Thanks for a nice experience.

“Great guacamole!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

We didn't book to go to the restaurant, as it was a Thursday eve it was very busy , but a table was allocated immediately inside.
The decor is beautiful although the lighting is very subdued and really it would've been nice to see a little better.
Our waiter was very helpful and informative giving suggestions and recommendations. My husband wanted a mixed fajita and that was ordered without any problem and the prawns were just fantastic. There was a little confusion with the nachos and guacamole at the start of our meal but that was sorted out and removed from the bill without hesitation. The guacamole and chips are great and very moreish!
My chicken fajita was delicious and very filling I even shared some with my son and there was still some left.
We didn't have space for dessert, but they sounded great, so maybe next time?

“Spectacular dining”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

My sister and her husband surprised us with a visit from Qatar for my birthday. Wonderful surprise and my brother-in-law paid for dinner at Maya. It was very expensive I thought though the food was ok. The restaurant itself is fantastic. Very lively and mostly young crowd. Really good atmosphere. I felt the food was just ok though, but not really outstanding. As a birthday present, however, it was wonderful.

“Great Mexican food, lovely location”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely modern Mexican restaurant set in the gardens of Le Royal Meridien Hotel. You can choose a table inside or outside with patio heaters if necessary.
The staff here are excellent, attentive and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the food here, which was plentiful and the atmosphere was also good. Prices are average for this type of high end restaurant in this area.
