“Worth a visit”
Review of Maya

Maya
Ranked #456 of 29,020 Restaurants in Daegu
Cuisines: Indian, Nepali
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 12, 2013

A little cozy for bigger groups, but with a good atmosphere and reasonably priced food. My one small complaint is that every now and again, the lunch seems to be a little hit or miss, I guess depending on who's working in the kitchen. However even when the food was more of a miss, it was still okay. If you want Indian/Nepalese food in Korea, this place worth a visit. Also, they do have good vegetarian options.

The area is chock full of restaurants which makes finding the place a bit difficult. The easiest way to get there is to go to the North gate of Gyeongbuk University (경북 대학교 북문). Taxi drivers should know this location. Then, cross the street, away from the university. Go left for half a block and take your first right. (There should be a little plant stall on the corner) You should almost immediately see a Y in the street. Maya is right there, between the two arms? of the Y, It's on the second floor.

I've been to Maya twice, and have visited nearly every other Indian and Nepali restaurant in Daegu. Maya's location is quite central, and the service is quite good (not impossible to summon a waiter or waitress). I would not label the food as excellent, and the portion sizes are relatively meager, especially with regard to the small two pieces of nan that come with each order. However, the spices are decent although a little blander than what I'm accustomed to.

There's a nice glassed-in area in the Beomeo location that makes a great spot for small-to-medium sized dinner parties. The pricing isn't unreasonable, at about 12,000 won for most curries/tandoori dishes. The sets are a better value, though.

I'd rate Ganga as the best Indian restaurant around (especially the locations in Busan and Seoul), but Maya is a nice second.

Maya is an excellent Indian restaurant in Daegu. The staff is friendly and the food is amazing. The best part about though, is the pricing will not hurt your wallet. Compared to the other Indian restaurant in Daegu, Ganga, Maya has beat its competition by a long shot. It can be a bit hard to find but, with their new takeout location at Beomo English Street, it's a bit easier to find.

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

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.
