Maya Masala is a family run business established in 1988. Over the years our passion has been to deliver fresh, hand made, nutritious vegetarian food. Our produce driven menu is a product of our enthusiasm for working with the seasons. Our food, including a large range of delicious Indian desserts, is made by hand with love. Our menu showcases traditional ingredients and cooking techniques from across the Indian sub-continent with our own contemporary twists to traditional recipes. Some of the most tasty, fun and affordable food of any country is its street food and Maya Masala features chaat – crunchy, spicy, sweet, tangy, brightly flavored Indian street snacks. And since there is nothing more comforting and delicious in any culture than a home cooked meal, we also bring to you thalis – traditional family meals highlighting India’s amazing culinary diversity.
