Visited Maya Indian Grill for the first time last night. Was pleasantly greeted (by the owner?) and seated promptly. Our server appeared quickly to take drink orders; these were served quickly - beer with an frosty glass and well-prepared martini.
For each item we ordered, we were asked to specify mild, medium or hot. For the vindaloo, we asked for hot. Our server asked if we wanted "American hot" or "Indian hot". We opted for the former, and it was plenty hot! It was a nice touch that she asked and didn't let us make a mistake :-) The chicken vindaloo was excellent, as was the lamb korma and Dal that we ordered. They also had bigger selection of naan than we've found elsewhere. We opted for cilantro chile - never had this before, but it was very flavorful.
We were sitting by a window; at one point the host / owner asked if we would like a space heater! We declined, but were impressed that he asked to be sure we were comfortable.
All in all, a great place and we will be back. Very tasteful and pleasant decor, great service, awesome food and super convenient location. We've been to many Indian restaurants in the greater Boston area and this one has worked its way to the top of the list. Looking forward to going back!
