Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great strawberry margarita (4.5). Having early dinner with friend with fresh coctails. Also mojito (3+) and sangria red (3+) Home made nachos are great, gambas with guacamole great as well, pollo tacos a bit too wet, beef fajita was quite ok. We’d like to come...again.More

The waiters/waitresses are very efficient. Quick service. Good control over the room. Food is ok - the Salmon ceviche a bit too sweet - the chicken tacos were good but a bit dry. Good guacamole.

Visited the restaurant at 17 on Tuesday and it was not too busy. However we got our food only 45 minutes after we had ordered and at that point my food was cold. When telling this to the waitress she asked if I still want...to eat it and get some discount or if I want a new one. As eating cold food in the restaurant is not something I want to do, I asked for a new portion. That arrived at the point when others had already finished eating. When I ordered the bill I explained this to waiter and he gave me 20% discount (3,50) from my food. I do not think this was a good way to manage this situation. No need to go there again. The food was quite OK , not especially delicious.More

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

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.
