Ideal for… one of the best (& fanciest) Mexican restaurant in the city.
Restaurant name and location: MAYA Modern Restaurant & Lounge at Le Royal Meridien Dubai
Cuisine: Mexican fine dining
Atmosphere: Oh, this place is happening! Sunday night and it’s full, yet serene downstairs and buzzing on the roof for ladies night!
What they say: The regions first modern Mexican restaurant offers you an unforgettable multi-dining and lounging experience in a truly exceptional setting. Maya has both challenged the perception of Mexican cuisine whilst presenting Dubai with one of its most stylish and elegant venues supported by celebrity Chef Richard Sandoval.
What to order:
-Guacamole and chips, of course (Their guaca is super fresh and tasty)
-Queso Fundido (If you love quessadillas, order this. Melted cheese duo, warm tortillas and mushrooms – you can make your own!)
-Chicken fajitas (make your own fajitas using seasoned chicken)
-Churros (keep some space for the churros as they are going to be some of the best you will ever have. It comes with three dips – dulce de leche, chocolate and condensed milk. My favourite is the condensed milk!)
Service: Juan Carlos, our waiter knew his stuff, was great at recommendation – not to mention very sweet and some guests were calling him on a first name basis!
What I loved:
-Some of the sweetest staff, very refreshing to have consistently good service in Dubai.
-This place doesn’t only serve really good food, but the outdoor area, roof and bar are beautiful, so it’s even great to drop by for drinks and guaca.
-Authentic and fresh ingredients, their margarita also tasted fresh!
-They do make the best churros in town.
Bill for two: AED600
