MAYA fuses the traditional flavours of the Mayan heritage with the sophisticated tastes of today's demanding palate. Aesthetically, MAYA combines a Colonial-inspired shabby-chic interior with an elegant yet relaxed ambiance. Rustic wooden crates lining the walls compliment exposed brickwork, with Mexican artwork adorning the walls and artefacts galore.
As the nights get longer, for hearty meal lovers, the Ribeye steak, lime and pepper rub option will get mouths watering, and for those eating on the hop or en route to the theatre, appertizers and lighter dishes such as pimientos de padron or ceviche, made with ingrefients fresh from the fish market, will hit the spot.
Here's a new one - Mayan inspired cuisine. Not quite Peruvian and not Brazilian either, Maya is taking London's love of Latin America and mixing it up with a bit of history. Or so we like to think as we're not too sure Montezuma's pals used to eat burritos or tacos in quite the same way that we do. The menu here is relatively small and focuses on great flavour combinations, such as oysters with buttermilk salsa, rather than doing anything too out of the ordinary. Whilst Maya predominantly champions smaller portions to stock up on, there are a few larger dishes from the grill to keep the hungrier wolves of the pack at bay and of course, you can't leave without consuming at least half your table's bodyweight in churros. Drinkswise we say try the chilli chocolate espresso martini which combines some of the greatest cocktails into one ridiculous but tasty cocktail.
