“Beautiful food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

Had an amazing night out at Mayambe. Food was exceptional, and had heaps of vegetarian options. Jim and Liz the owners were charming and very welcoming. The locally distilled mescals were amazing, particularly try the mocha.

Great place to go for vegetarians or just a change from tacos!

“Great veggie option in San Cristobal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013

I echo the comments of the previous reviewer. Was a real find. Great for vegetarians (and particularly ones that have o.d.-ed on corn tortillas, as per our party). Hospitality was superb, there's a warm open fire and crayons with which to decorate your table-cloth. Choice was varied and food was good.

“Sweet change of pace from Mexican food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

This is a fabulous Indian/Thai restaurant in downtown San Cristobal. The owner Liz is wonderful and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. The ambience is great. AND the food is delectable and delicious!!!!!! Thank you Liz. I needed a break. Being vegetarians is tricky in Mexico. No problem at Mayambe. Just in case you are interested Mayambe means beautiful goddess in Hindi.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2012

LOVED this place, a welcome break from local Mexican food with delicious dishes from every continent. The servings are generous, The food is flavoursome and fresh-tasting. Liz the hostess is so welcoming, and there is a gorgeous roaring fire inside plus regular live local music. Great value for money too. Don't miss it!
