The tacos all came out cold and I asked them for some warm ones but they brought more cold ones out. And the service was terrible. Tried to order a drink and 3 different waitresses told me that they was not my waitress so couldn't help me. When I was asking the waitress simple questions they didn't understand much English.

Everything about this place works. Great food, cocktails, music, location, value for money. Service could be a tad more attentive. Especially on arrival. However it's small pokey restaurant I guess that's what makes it so sometimes service gets busy.

Me and my friends went here with a groupon voucher. The deal was quite good honestly - all you can eat for less than 20 dollars each. The waiters were all nice and professional. For this I give A. The girls were all very good and professional. Unfortunately the drinks were bad. We had a glass of sangria that was... More

9 Bucks each for all you can eat tacos... Course your gonna arrive not knowing what to expect. I have to say this place is awesome for what you pay. All the meat tacos are really tasty. The service is fantastic you get assigned a friendly mexican bird who goes through how the menu works etc. The music and restaurant... More

This place definitely gets kudos for all the marketing they do! The place is well known amongst my network of friends and colleagues simply because of their name is well known - whether it's through groupon deals or being known for the tacos they offer. We visited on a Saturday evening, and unfortunately the lack of food-quality (flavours, ingredients, meat... More

Second time I've eaten here in two months. Last time was spectacular, so I vouched for it and some girlfriends and I went there again tonight. Wow. It wasn't good. The Girl serving us could barely speak minimal English so it was a point at the menu and hope for the best kind of situation. We all ordered tacos, fries... More

On a Voucher for all you can eat, we visited this very busy restaurant. Serves were a good size and quite tasty. The restaurant was packed and very noisy. The staff were pleasant, helpful and assisted with choices. We stupidly did not take the advice and ordered two dishes which turned out to be very similar in taste. Then we... More

We had all you can eat taco deal. Ordered some margaritas and started with the tacos. Coming from Los Angeles, I have high expectations when it comes to tacos. The tacos here are definitely what I am not used to because.... it came with cabbage and carrots. It's more closer to Pupusa than Taco in my opinion. I wish the... More

I bought two vouchers but couldn't use either one. They are a total scam and won't even reply to emails sent. I'm forced to do a chargeback on my credit card. Not recommended at all. A better option would be to just throw your money away. At least that way somebody might find it and get some use out of... More

Arrived at this restaurant as a coupon diner. Ushered in to a table upon arrival, and then was greeted by a charming Chilean hostess. She helped us with the menu advising what was 'out of the norm', and then suggesting good drinks for the meal. We started with the crispy chicken and grilled corn. Both delicious and quick to the...

Description
We are rustic, charming and just like that holiday you always want to have but run out of time. Pop in and forget Melbourne for a moment. Our wait staff mostly have a Latin background and will enthusiastically promote the best from 'their' part of the world! Come enjoy our authentic Mexican courtyard, discreetly hidden out back! The food is fresh and tasty, playing with Mexican flavours providing value for money. Fun is what you get at Maya, and lets be fair, fun is why you drink TEQUILA! Our Dinner Menu includes many favourites but with a twist, with the help of local tortilleria El Cielo, authentic Mexican flavours will be ensured. Try the street snacks, 'Antojitos' for something creative that will compliment your drink, or eat many. That's the idea! Our food is designed to share, however if you feel like going solo, and perhaps rising to the claim 'the best Burritos' in town, well please be the judge! We cater easily to the growing needs of gluten intolerant, our tortillas used for the tacos and set menu are gluten free, made only from corn flour. There also many options across the well thought out menu, please ask our waiters who will be more than happy to help.
