This place is an institution, y’all. It’s been in Sydney as long as I can remember, and it’s also an empire, as there is Maya Tandoori and Maya Vegetarian across the street.
I think it has the cheapest wine in town, $5 for a generous glass (though of course, the brands are the cheapest available too; still, it’s transparent).
I’ve always found the food here dependable and occasionally really tasty. Like the Kashmiri Naan, a favourite. We had two different dishes with paneer, a super tasty beef sausage like appetizer, some goat with a nice strong flavour, and a sort of a vegetable dumpling in a cream sauce. Five dishes, enough for the three of us. My friends were rapturous and thought it among the best Indian food they’ve ever had. I would be more likely to call it tasty and dependable.
