It starts with a trip advisor search for Mexican food in Shanghai and a recommendation from a friend. Scrolling through the ill lit photos on trip advisor, it looks like a gamble, and we have a second destination with directions on the ready. The car pulls up to a gated residential community and again, a gamble. With no zoning laws... More

I visited this place for a Sunday Lunch in May 2014 and I'm planning to go there soon again. I’m still thinking about those churros!

Been awhile since I have been to Maya so I thought of giving it another try. Started off with a pitcher of margaritas. Had the shrimp-crab cakes, which were OK but not great. The jalapeño bean dip was was fantastic and not too hot. I had the short rib carne asado, which was really good. My wife had the lamb... More

Loved the atmosphere, loved the service. Some dishes were better than others - I was disappointed by the ceviche and the salmon tacos - but the good ones, man, they were REALLY good. The duck entree was amazing, and the churros for dessert are a must. Tequila flights and sangria pitchers also make for a fun evening. And our server... More

Maya is a wonderful Mexican restaurant. The food is delicious. I had the Argentine beef with roasted potatoes and it food was devine. It is a higher end restaurant but the value is there. The first time it's difficult to find, but keep looking for it, you won't be dissapointed.

Thank p f

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
