This afternoon I had the delight of dining at Maaya Indian kitchen and bar, Milton Keynes.
We were greeted by a friendly face and the service from the off was second to none.
To kick off the meal we ordered drinks, Feargus ordered a coke and I had the Virgin Pina Colada. These cocktails are 2-4-1 most evenings so be sure to check those out! The mocktail was divine. It was creamy, light and incredibly refreshing. The perfect companion alongside the spicier dishes.
The menu itself is extensive: from classic sides to a whole range of curries. We had the Lunch Time Party Menu so dived straight into the starters of onion bhajees, Vegetable samosas’ and tandoori chicken. All three of these starter/side dishes were delicious and great to share if you were with a larger party.
For my main I had the Chicken tikka masala with pilau rice and naan bread. I was impressed with the fact Maaya cook and serve the naan bread fresh, as a lot of Indian restaurants that offer a buffet menu seem to leave it out with the other dishes to get cold and dry. Our naan bread was brought to the table hot out the oven.
All the food was fresh and flavourful.
The dessert was interesting. I tried an authentic indian dessert called Sevaya Kheer which is a bit like rice pudding. The dessert consists of spiced milk bolstered by toasted vermicelli noodles. I really liked the hints of cinnamon and spices. It was nice to try something i wouldn’t ordinarily eat.
The ambience was pleasant, It felt typical of an authentic Indian restaurant with dimmed lighting, rich purple table cloths and Marrakech lanterns.
“At Maaya, our philosophy is simple: We aim to convey our passion for Indian cuisine through a unique blend of ethnic and progressive dishes infused to create a fresh and modern taste of India”.
The food at Maaya was lovely and great value for money. If you’re on the hunt for a good Indian restaurant in Milton Keynes look no further than Maaya Indian Kitchen and Bar.
