VVisited the restaurant mid week. Was reasonably full even then- always a good sign. Crowd; mainly young but not noisy. Service was excellent. and the food was very good. The portions are large and with my veggie fajita, i was offered as many tortillas and...salsa as I wanted. I did not need more than that was served. Can't fault the place at all. The staff are wonderful. They took their time to explain the menu and made great suggestions both with regards to the menu and drinks. The manager Joni is a real star.More

The customer service was good. We had fajitas which were piping hot and well presented. A good wine list. Margaritas were superb. Would definitely recommend. Good value for Helsinki

Food was tasteless and overpriced. Tacos fillings was tasteless and portion was small. A waitress was very friendly, but we didn’t get what we ordered. Halloumi wasn’t grilled properly and salad with five small pieces of tomato and three slices of cucumber and lettuce is...really not worth of 17,50€. It was a huge disappoinment.More

Feels like a regular stop when we head home Maya is located centrally in Helsinki and the food and cocktails are good. Had a Cuban paella which is very tasteful. For large eaters it may be a bit small though.

Have to say this was one of the biggest disappointments that I've had in recent history with restaurants. It was the "Eat with 10 euros" discount campaign that Helsinki has few times a year, so not the most premium of dishes, but the tortillas were...super hard, they just cracked like tacos when you tried to eat them, full of cheese, barely any chicken and the taste was just cheese and more cheese and then some cheese. They had some local craft beer, but sadly it was so old that I could not drink it and they did not have a replacement for it so I just left it there. Other ate dessert too, which seemed to be the best part of their menu. Service was ok. (Seems that they have changed the menu since this visit, maybe it is better now, who knows)More

Unlike in many comments here, we were served well! The food tasted absolutely great, too. Maybe somewhat small main dishes so I'd recommend appetizers. Fabulous location for those coming or going to the railwaystation, or National theatre.
