“Maya Cuisine & Bar has always been my favorite place in Minneapolis to dine in. The setting is very nice on the inside. Very nice customer service. The bar is amazing it is a split-off area from the restaurant which makes it more private. There is also a dating area located right in the bar where you could enjoy a date.”

“This is a nice and really clean restaurant in South Minneapolis. It’s a navy Veteran owned family restaurant run by super nice and friendly people. They also have really good fresh food here. Convenient parking and Hibiscus tea are always perfect. Never too sweet. They also have Tres Leches cake, but I’m always too full by the time I leave. A nice place to meet a friend or loved one for eats.”
