“first and last visit”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Expensive drinks my soda and lime cost more than my husbands beer! King prawn curry which consisted of 5 prawns obviously frozen packet as they had no taste and the onion was raw, I feel I have made better at home for a fraction of the price.Overpriced and very disappointing

“Just one word would do FABULOUS”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

Our friend Hami invited us to try this restaurant and even though we live eighty miles away it was worth the drive. Food to die for and service and staff were top notch. If possible try it for yourself. It's brilliant.

“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.
