“Decent...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

The food was actually pretty good, but the portions were rather small, especially considering the price.

“Simply Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

This quaint little spot is right in the middle of the bustling university community and it will pleasantly surprise you. The food is delicious, the portions are decent and prices are reasonable. Choose from the sets (table of 4 or 6) to get a nice combination of chicken pieces, curries, briyani's and naan and eat comu. The soothing Chai tea at the end of the meal, seals the deal. Worth the visit.

“A Real Treat and Highly Recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

Maya is an intimate Nepalese restaurant tucked away near Kyungbook University in Daegu. I've visited several times and have never been disappointed. The ambience and decor is the first thing that hits you when entering the restaurant and shows that the owners have made a real effort to please.

This continues with excellent and friendly service coupled with the FOOD of course!

"The best deal are the set menus. There is a chicken curry set, a vegetarian set, and a seafood set. These are offered in Indian or Nepali style. There didn’t seem to be much difference the two cuisines. Indian seems be spicier, while Nepali has a deeper flavor. The sets are between 10,000-12,000 won. Every set comes with a cabbage salad (typical side salad), a samosa, dal, a vegetarian dish, a curry, rice or naan, chai or lassi, and a traditional dessert. However, the vegetarian dish and the curry can change visit to visit depending on available ingredients. The chicken curry was spicy and flavorful, while the dal seemed a little bland. The samosas alone are worth visiting Maya. They are homemade and stuffed with potatoes, carrots, and peas."

In short - get down there!
