This review is actually for the downtown location on grace st Richmond I stayed at the Hilton right next to the Maya downtown on Grace St. I had a wonderful meal. The bourbon tacos were awesome. The meat was very tender and seasoned well. Loved the bourbon sweetness. Chips and salsa were ok. I liked the chips but the salsa... More

I had another wonderful meal at Maya in Short Pump. The food is excellent. The service is very good. This has become one of my favorite spots. I have taken many friends and everyone loves it. This is not your everyday Mexican. In fact, it will be hard to eat everyday Mexican after you visit Maya.

Great tequila selection. Margarita was a bit tart but was improved with OJ and agave shot. Had carnitas which were wonderful. Limited menu so not your normal large selection of plates. Several fish dishes. Chips and salsa very tasty. Helpful waiter and very friendly.

This is definitely not your run of the mill Mexican restaurant! The food is creative and somewhat upscale, presented nicely on the plate. Friendly, and knowledgeable about items on the menu, the wait staff was capable of answering any questions we had. I believe this is the only nice restaurant in all of VA where one can get a sugar...

My husband and I visited Maya on the recommendation of a friend. I am so glad we listened. We went for a Sunday brunch. They bring mini assorted muffins to the table along with butter and marmalade. We tried the classic margarita and the Marie's margarita. Both were awesome but the classic topped the list. The pulled pork tacos were... More

Friends recommend this place, 3 years ago was my first time here and last I ever tried any other Mexican restaurant!!! I have been there numerous times and have never been disappointed with the food or service, try the carne asada tacos, salmon is fantastic, my favorite place for date night.

Food was good, drinks were good, but even after telling the bartender (traveling alone, I normally sit at the bar) I don't eat fish, that's all he kept recommending. The menu was VERY limited. I couldn't even get fajitas of any type.

Stumbled upon this little restaurant and found a gem. Only sampled several dishes but, found all but one to have wonderful flavors beyond what I would have expected. Talked to several other people that I know who dined there that night from our group and their experience was similar to mine. The skirt steak was fabulous, the rice and beans... More
