Was taken here whilst on business by an Indian colleague who is vegetarian. We had a wide variety of food all of it was fantastic. I would definitely go back.

I've been coming to this restaurant for years and have never reviewed it. Went again this evening. Whilst I am a meat eater, this restaurant definitely keeps me satisfied. I love the Dosa with Paneer. Great flavour and great texture. The thalis are great but I really have nothing to compare them to. The sweets are beautiful with so many... More

I love this cafe/ restaurant. It's pure veg; the thalis are great and its very reasonably priced. We got one punjabi thali, one south indian thali and a large lassi to share. It was delicious and filling, and the bill was less than $40. Its a busy place too, with lots of regulars. I see this place has received some... More

Despite generally being a fan of meat based curries, I really enjoyed the food at Maya. I had a thali and a potato pakora, all of which were flavourful. Good value for money.

Long Review - I have been visiting Maya Veg restaurant since a year now. I love their menu and the variety of options from the list. Quality is up to the mark and no one could match it. I prefer having Punjabi Veg Thaali majorly during my visits but have also tried almost everything from their menu and I admit... More

Good quality traditional food, friendly staff and cosey restaurant, It is a longstanding restaurant so don't expect trendy décor but very authentic food and friendly staff.

This was probably the worst indian lunch experience. For $16 they served 5 coldish sauces into which you could dip a nan bread. These were supposed to be curries, but there was not a single piece of meat or vegetable in them. The tables were dirty, staff kind of ok, but regret going there altogether.
