Wonderful lounge w/ dancing – Its a great place to go with friends to enjoy tasty Indian style food in a trendy setting. Later in the evening, the crowd was young and hip, with live DJ.

Definitely recommend it. We had a great time.

Friendly staff, uncrowded and relaxed, somewhat expensive – How does Maya mean Indian food? That was only one of the mysteries of this fun, but expensive, vegetarian restaurant. Buy the time we left, we were the only ones in the place. The owner came over to talk to us. Nice guy, but he didn't explain the name. He said we should come back during Happy Hour two for one drinks.

The food was pretty good: samosa and the world's only shish kebab NOT on a stick. Not a lot for your buck, but at $6 to $9 not bad pricing either. But order a "specialty drink." Yowsah! $13 bucks. I could see a movie for that. At $7 each, the beer seemed like a bargain. The Serbian staff (another mystery) were very friendly to us, although the kitchen was not exactly Johnny-on-the-spot. I've already forgotten how to say Kampai in Serbian, but it's written down somewhere. -- Drink Club is a roving group of NYC drinkers

Fine for a Friday after work – I went last Friday after work...not crowded, easy to get a seat, spacious. Worth another try as an after work starting point.

Crooks and thieves!! – My friend and I had our birthday celebration there and we had reserved and confirmed everything with the owner. We even were allowed to bring our own DJ because of the amount of people we knew we'd have. Friday nights are ALWAYS free and he assured us our party would be no different. Because of this, we told our guests ahead of time on the invitation and Evite that there was a two drink minimum (to make sure he'd make a nice amount). Also, their drinks are VERY expensive ranging from 10-27 dollars each. As we got really busy, he and his security charged people at the door. Some were charged $10, some $15 and some as much as $20 dollars. They randomly decided who would be charged what. Needless to say, I went to the door when a few of my guests told me and the security guard said that the owner said to charge people. When I approached him, he acted like he didn't know what I was talking about. Then after a while stated that it was a Friday night and because of the time he was entitled to do so. He even refused to refund the money to the people. He said some of them could have a free drink instead. Most never got it. To make a long story short, don't bother with this place. It's too small, too expensive and most importantly, I don't like doing business with crooks and liars. I don't think you do either.

Not impressed...worst bartenders in NYC. – I went on a Thursday around 5:30 - 6:00 p.m. There wasn't as much of an after work crowd as I expected which made it easy to grab a table. Happy Hour is a good deal: 2 for 1 drinks from 4 - 8, even top shelf. But the drinks were awful, because the bartenders were awful, and slow! My cosmopolitan tasted like cough medicine. Your best bet would be to order something on the rocks so they can't screw it up. The place itself was decorated very elaboratly, but I don't think I'll be going back.

great! – went there friday, had a blast, a mixed, mostly indian college crowd, night starts off slowly, but with the dj spinnig, the party starts. the drinks are delicious, staff, from waitresses to bar tenders to bouncer(s) are great, and the owner is very friendly. great place to go for a little bit of dancing and unwinding ater a busy week friday night.

Don't ever come here – A few friends and I popped in for a drink and some apps before heading to another lounge. The waitress did not talk and did not know anything about the menu. She kept referring to things by the numbers listed on the menu. The food was horrendous. Some of it wasn't heated properly and the overall taste was lacking. We talked to the manager and he discounted a few apps apologizing for the waitress's lack of service. He said that it was her second day. However, if you are going to hire somebody for a higher end lounge, I would think you would want to filter out the novices from the job......

Lost in the midst of Midtown, this chameleon lounge delivers after-work respite and weekend revelry. – The Scene
The female bartenders are swathed in kimonos and the menu offers some Indian snacks, but the Asian theme stops short before the decor. Cream-colored couches with earth-toned pillows line the back of the room, and multicolored lights beneath the surface of the mod, translucent bar set drinks aglow with a rotating rainbow of hues. Patrons share quiet conversation, and try to ignore the fuzzy techno soundtrack crackling in the background. On weekends, party promoters bring in a livelier crowd.

The Draw
Young professionals looking for a club-like cocktail find it here without the congestion. Saccharine-sounding specialty drinks--such as Exotic Emerald Elixir--manage to avoid sickly sweetness, and are made with top-shelf liquor. Mango nectar and whole lychees lend natural fruit flavor to the Mayatini, and the Sexy Sapphire Margarita is surprisingly well-poured--even though it's blue. The Diamond Fizz, a concoction of gin, lemon juice, and seltzer, is crisp and refreshing.
