“We have a new favourite Indian Restaurant in Dunfermline”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

My wife an I visited Maya's on Friday 12th July. The building is new with very impressive decor, the layout inside is excellent and their are nice touches like the picture window allowing a view of the very clean and busy kitchen. The restaurant has only been open for a couple of weeks and it might be expected that the staff would go out of their way to be friendly and efficient - and they were. The complimentary popadoms and spiced onions arrived like magic.

We had starters - the onion bhaji was good but the Lahori Seekh Kebab was the best sheek kebab I have ever tasted. The chicken karahi, the chicken jalfrezi and the garlic naan were also excellent. All of this with side dishes and a bottle of wine came to a little over £50 - and no annoying service charge imposed on the bill. One thing that I found reassuring was that when a nearby table was vacated it was completely cleared and cleaned before being re-set.

Altogether an excellent meal in excellent surroundings. We will definitely be back and will be recommending this establishment to friends. Well done to all staff for making this en enjoyable evening.

“Family dinner at Maya's-highly recommended”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Went for dinner with 4 kids between 3 and 8, waiters very friendly and involved them throughout. The meal was the best Indian we've ever had. You can see the chefs cooking through the window, Clean and modern. Chicken was cooked to perfection in all the meals and the accompaniments were fresh,naan breads were crispy fluffy and light, along with the poppadoms and spicy onions which were different to everywhere else and very palatable. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.

“First visit to Maya's Restaurant - top class curry!”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Went for a curry after work with friends and very impressed. Struck initially by the stylish modern interior with a large window at the rear of the restaurant looking into the kitchen to see the chefs preparing the food. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff.
Vegetable samosa for a starter - absolutely delicious, melt in the mouth.
Chicken Karahi for the main - again delicious, friends ordered the lamb karahi - meat perfectly cooked.
Best curry I have had in a long time, really would recommend this place, I will definitely be back for more!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are most grateful for your compliments and our staff have been trained to give the best service possible. Our waiters work as a team with the same aim to win over our dinners. Our samosa is freshly made home style, the pastry is made by our chefs freshly which allows the samosa to be crispy and light. It is our aim to introduce savoury mince and onion samosa's soon so please watch our menus. We look forward to serving you soon. Why not pop in for a two course business lunch. see you soon.
