Maya's used to be my favorite restaurant in Short Pump - a really special gem in the sea of chain restaurants. When my family was in town last week, I was excited to share this great local place with them. Unfortunately, we had a very disappointing experience. The freshly made margaritas and guacamole trio were delicious- so off to a... More

Disappointing because the food had no flavor. The best selection was the chips and salad. It was also notable that unlike most Mexican restaurants this one did not have good attendance. Cannot recommend.

This is more formal than most Mexican restaurants here. It's kind of upscale, and the food is kind of fusion, but it is nice to have quiet elegance near the movies

This is the third time I've reviewed this restaurant. I've had variable experiences and stayed away for a while. But last night, Oct 20, I returned and had an amazing meal. The restaurant looks better, too, with a new floor and removal of a wall since my last visit. The menu has improved. I ordered a $25 entree called a... More

This is not the typical Tex-Mex but do give it a try, It is really good. Very typical of the food you find in Mexico or Latin America. The service can be slow but it is worth it or just let the wait staff know you don't have much time. This is a nice place to meet someone for a... More

I have been here three times in the past 6 weeks - it's becoming one of the surefire restaurants for out-of-town visitors. Great food, attentive waitstaff (but not hovering), a bartender who knows his stuff. One time I was there, the chef came out & checked on everyone and I think actually served a couple of people (they were busy).... More

This is a “Modern Mexican” restaurant focusing on Latin American as well as Mexican cuisine --- a somewhat different, more upscale Mexican grill. Lunch menus feature two tacos (carne asada, carnitas, camaron, ancho, fish, etc) at prix fix $7.95 --- very good. The chicken fajitas dish is excellent. Service is OK albeit a bit slow. Ambiance is very nice, comfortable,... More

Maya takes us to the Mexican restaurant experience that doesn't have to mean heavy traditional low quality fare. Maya specializes in Mexican-based recipes with amazing flavors for entrees including salmon, ribs,Tilapia...pulled pork and more. Tacos, enchiladas and other traditional items are featured as well with fresh local ingredients. Fantastic authentic Tequila concoctions and stellar service. I'll be back!

There are a number of reviews that criticize Maya for having a smaller menu. For me, this is a positive aspect - as they focus on quality vs quantity. I would prefer they do a few items very well vs. a huge menu with only mediocre results. I opted for the Ceviche Trio, as I wanted a chance to try... More

Outstanding food! This is one of our favorites in the west end. Excellent service and food. Owner is the chef. She often visits the table to get feedback. Delicious entrees with extremely fresh food. Highly recommended.
