Don’t get intimidated by the candle-lit tables or the huge orthodox chandelier that hangs at the entrance, because if there is a word that would describe dining at Maya it would be immaculate.

I emailed them our reservation and the staff promptly replied – working in front of the computer 12 hours a day makes standing up and dialing the phone for dinner reservations seem too cumbersome. So we came and as expected, the waiters were warm and accommodating. There was even one who explained to me the ingredient details of one dish, I thought he was the chef on a break.
