Its Good...

Maiya's is a good place that one can visit in Bangalore...
Ambience- its simple, clean and its managed very well in a small area. Kitchen is clean too...
Food- food is very yummy... We normally have dosa here which is very yummy... Their variety of chutney is also yummy... Sandwich also tastes great and sweets are their specialty so it is the best... Even I love the pastries here...
Price- price is reasonable... Its not very high...
Service- it is not up to the mark, the only default they have... They should appoint good waiters who can serve in a friendly way....
Overall I would say its good...:)

Not A Very Inspiring Experience

Went to Maiya's yesterday for the first time after hearing about it from my friends. Ordered 3 different dosas. The masala dosa, cucumber dosa and special masala dosa. Surprising there was no sambar with Dosas and my son would not eat without sambar!! The waiter did not come back to offer chutney refill either which they had provided in very small quantities to begin with. All in all , if I have to burn my money there are thousand other places in Bangalore. Not going back there anytime sooner, for this money I can get better Dosas with unlimited sambar and chutney.

good food

Awesome food, no questions... Pastries were surprisingly good, good flavour
but poor customer reception and washrooms
Must ask them to shell out a little extra money for maintaining separate toilets and washbasins

New Programme

Introduce a new programme called "pankthi oota" during rush hours. Arrange a hall just as it is done in marriage dining hall, seat the people in long in rows in batches and serve food in marriage style. Baleyelae or other readymade huge plates can be used. There will be no long waiting queues. People who prefer quick meals will be benefitted. No need for Bellilota etc. Serve as much and as what required. This may cost a little lesser too as it avoids elaborate arrangement of table. It is beneficial for both the management and the customers as it will increase the business and save time for those who are short of time. Many people avoid Maiya as it is very time taking. Let those who are there for a leisurly family outing wait for reserved tables. The other regular customers can have a quick meal in pankthis.

Good food and ambiance

We have tried out this joint quite many a times..but this review is based on our today's experience.
The positives:

Ambiance: Just fine
Environment: clean, tidy and inviting.
Service: of wait staff is quite good, proactive and attentive
Food: delicious
we have ordered Neer Dosa, Bonda Soup, Badam Halwa( their signature dish definitely). Best part is the accompanying coconut chutney that is quite good and equally nice is the unique flavor of aloo kurma...Badam halwa is just excellent.

The improvements:
Concept of the immediately clearing and cleaning the table doesnt seem to exist. We need to continue to get the attention of the service staff in this regard.
Coffee: its fully loaded with high content of chicory; so one wouldnt get the authentic south Indian filter coffee taste that is so unique at any of the iconic joints like MTR or Brahmins

Managerial: perhaps their supervisor or floor manager or so should ensure that the guests do not go overdrive and overly boisterous at the expense of the others...atleast if the hotel staff are firm and polite such erratic behaviour can be stemmed

Snacks: their Ombadi vada(masala) is excellent;

Overall: good.

Too Much Hype!!!

Visited Maiya's today to make my Christmas special- I had heard about this place from friends who would rave about the breakfast items served here.The place is clean ,extremely crowded and very noisy.You need to shout and speak so that the person across the table can hear you. So if you like to enjoy your food peacefully this is definitely not the place fr you. Coming to the food, I ordered for rava idli ,i was told it is served only after 8 am and i was there at around 745 ,so i ordered idli which was served with green chutney and sambar- the idli was soft but not porous so the sambar did not really penetrate the idlis , chutney was awesome, the sambar was spicy and not really great .Since i was already disappointed I thought of trying something else- i called for vada - which was not so crispy- was ok ,but one can skip the vada here, thoroughly disappointed I tried bonda soup- i wasn't really surprised it was soft and soggy , the centre was like a lump of dough - really a sad experience.The saviour was the coffee which was OK-I am surprised that Times Food has awarded the restaurant this year .

About Maiyas food and beverages

Its regarding their distributionship, their employees are multitalented in cheating the distributors, first of all they ask distributor to invest more and more money and later after some period of time they make sure that they have got enough money and they will cancell their distribution, if the distributor asks for money they start avoiding them, from manager to sales rep all are of same.. Dont know why they are cheating peoples like this.. Rating is 5/5 excellent for doing above said job.

My favorite South Indian set meal

I love the South Indian set meal here as there are more than 24 items which are served to you which are made with best ingredients and pure ghee. Getting a seat here during weekends is really tough and you might have to wait for at least half an hour but its really worth the wait! I love non-veg a lot and didn't know I could ever be so passionate about a south Indian veg meal but the taste here is really heavenly. A must visit for all visitors to Bangalore!

Great breakfast / snack option

I keep coming back for the plain dosa and the great fruit juice.
Yes, it is *very* crowded - but it is insanely cost effective and the service is good and quick.
The rava idly is great too!

An okay place

Been here on saturday mornings. The food is okay. Sometimes its an overdose of ghee, and doesnt even taste good. Very crowded.

Authentic south indian food

well been 3 times there! best time to visit would be on weekdays unless you can brave the crowds and wait atleast an hour to get in on weekends. First time was when i had gujarati thali which was good for the variety and quantity but is now stopped.
I have had twice the south indian thali which most of the food is normal fare for a typical south indian . They first serve you lime honey drink in a silver tumbler !. Then comes the thali - the puris with sabzi, 2-3 veg palyas, a rice dish usually bisibelebath or pulao, kosambari, vadas or bajjis, chips and fried ones (sandige) , 2 sweets, sambar , rasam, curds, ice cream fruit salad and finally beeda . Food is served hot and they serve you unlimited. Service is good and quick. Food is typical normal fare which you can find in any normal darshini and dont expect anything special or surprising . May be the north indian or those who have'nt tasted authentic south indian may find it good . Good to try it once, but trying going on any weekday so that you can enjoy the food leisurely .
Also check out the coffee bar and sweet shop in the ground floor that offers a wide range of sweets,namkeens, tarts, ice creams , ready made mixes and the normal bakery stuff

Losing Quality - We get stomach pain

It was initially good .. Now its going down badly ... Even if we have just idli we get stomach pain the next day ... Its very crowed also .. The rates are high for the quality of food given there. Its good for a one time visit .. there are several other restaurants better than this

Misbehavior by Staff - Shameful!

Me and wife visited Maiya's on the 1st Floor today evening. We like the place because the food is very good.

Today though, I had an angry experience. When the food was being served, I saw a couple of waiters making remarks about my wife, who is pregnant as well. I did not hear what they said so I didn't respond.

When we were leaving, a number of waiters were near the serving counter and made remarks again, which irked me. I informed a supervisor about this and he apologized.

My feedback: I don't know who those third-grade and shameless waiters are. But, I know Maiya's as a restaurant. When I walk out of the door, I will have a bad feedback about the place and not the people who messed the experience.

I have been a Customer service manager and I know one thing for sure. Whom you recruit and whom you keep as employees become the face of your organization. If you don't recruit the right people, or if you don't fire the wrong people, all your hard work in building a good organisation will go down the drain.

Also, this is hospitality industry...where food is being served (Supposed to be the blessings of the Goddess). Please atleast respect that.

We are eating the food served by the same waiters, who will talk about your family in a disrespectful manner. Such a shame!!!

I hope the management is reading this and talks corrective action. I have maintained my decency and formally put up this feedback...I am sure someone in my place would have done some physical damage as well.

I will definitely think twice before entering the place again. I will also inform my family and friends about this, so that they don't have to go through this.

Thanks

I wish I could give it zero stars

Only God can explain the number of people that flock this restaurant as if there is no other decent place around. My father is one among the crowd, and sometimes without any other option I tag along. They have singlehandedly spoilt the MTR Rava idly eating experience for me which was something that I used to treasure from childhood. I think the chef here has won a lifetime supply of asafoetida which he so generously empties into the sagu. You can actually taste the South Indian cook's influence on the North Indian dishes. If you order a Rava Dosa, you get only half the size of the usual Rava dosas, if you order a dahi kachori, you get a kachori bathed and inturn dead in the curd. I can go on and on. Maiya, I hate you. Please improve for the sake of people like me, who have such forgiving Dads who keep dragging us along.

5-star South Indian

The South Indian full meals are simply awesome. MTR finally has a worthy competitor. Bad North Indian and Gujarati are to be expected (though not excused). The 5 star is for the awesome South Indian only.

Worst north Indian taste and dangerous sweets.

This was my 5th or 6th visit and believe me it has been consistently awful, be it south Indian stuff loaded with excessive salt, the north Indian gravies without any aroma or taste but only some tomato base. Their variety of sweets (have almost bought all the stuff they have just to evaluate the taste and quality) everything is either mediocre or below average in taste and quality, the hard type of mysorepak felt like loaded with vanaspati (Transfats) most of them taste like more of maida (refinedflour) less of khoa in milk based types and other types have a cross odor of some other fried food in oil or ghee. Once I saw a tray of sweets unhygienically being covered in a newspaper being brought to the place, I could literally see the oil from the sweets making the new paper a bloating paper, Imagine we generally wonder how lead poisoning can happen, these folks may have no clue of news papers being so dangerous when contacted with food that too with stuffs which have oil or fat.The person who receives you in the 3rd floor acts as if it is a favor that they are providing an opportunity to have food in their hotel, so arrogant and rude in his behavior. All the north Indian stuff tastes like the south Indian cooks have been given additional responsibility to take care of that too, of course for the same salary. Every time it's a complete waste of money, but somehow my family members are yet to get enough with this place and continue to leave me a chance to tease them that they don't know what the real taste is :-)

Maiya's - A little hyped

Couple of months back decided to head for a South Indian dinner with family.
Checked with friends and settled on Maiya's.
Fore warning : Book before you head out there, was my friends advice and duly so did a booking for a Friday evening and ended there at a late 7ish.
Saw a huge pile up of crowd, I was left wondering if I could even secure a place.
Finally my review after my experience at Maiya's.

Ambience : Just as any South Indian restaurant ,bright , tables well laid out and perfect for an eating experience.
Rating : 3 on 5

Service : prompt , quick and well mannered.
rating 4 on 5

Food : Strictly average when you consider the price.
The same food is available at a different place at two thirds of this price if not less.
An unlimited meal entitles you to varieties of food, but end of the day it is rice , rice and more rice. A heaven for a rice lover.
If you are looking for any improvisation probably not the place.
If you are a South Indian and looking for novelty, you would be disappointed.
The rating below is only for the variety and not the quality.
Rating : 2 on 5

Overall review : 3 on 5. This place is hyped.

Not Worth the Hye!!!

We, a group of around 15 went for dinner wherein they charges a whopping 350 per plate, the reason being the food was served in silver vessels. 38 items were listed in the menu, which includes stuff like pickles, small papad, big papad etc (See how cunning these people are). Although there were around 15-16 items as a wholesome item, none of them were spectacular, most of them can be termed as average. Overall the taste was 3.5/5, but not at all for the worth of 350 (At the most Rs200 can be given). As such i recommend this silver thali a utter waste in terms of value for money.

Very ordinary fare

Hype..hype and more hype...long ..long queues....have tried south indian meals(not worth 145/- tastes just like any other darshini), gujrati thali(1-2 items will be decent rest ordinary), dancing kadhai(yuck soup- never take that palak carot shorba) - pathetic stuffed roti...gravies are full of uncooked tomato paste especially their special ones...uncooked starters...and going downstairs...180/- per kg for rave unde(rava laddoo) and crazy prices for pretty ordinary badusha(some 320/- per kg) and finally any(ANY) bakery in Bangalore makes a decent and crunchy pakoda(onion based)..Maiya's one was all damp and full of curry leaves and taste. What taste ? ...Good bye Maiya'saaa...any ordinary darshini is a lot better than this one... :(

Good, authentic Karnataka food

Had been to Maiya's with a group of 30 people. Had booked the seats in advance, so did not have to wait in the queue for a long time. They are usually very rigid about the schedule, so please make it a point to be there on time if you have reserved earlier.

The food was very good with authentic Karnataka taste. Although the crowd is a little too much, the food quality is definitely worth it. There were a total of around 25 items all served unlimited. But I would suggest that have each of the item with only the quantity served by them initially. There are just too many items.

not that great !!!

Had been to dancing kadhai which is the north indian section of Maiya's.
the ambiance is fine . We ordered Bharwa aloo tikki for starter . the menu describes it as aloo tikki with cottage cheese stuffed inside .. but there was no trace of cottage cheese / paneer in that and the quantity was very less. for main course we had roti and paneer tikka masala . the roti's were fine but the sabzi was not at all tasty and it was very salty . subz biriyani was ok. couldn try dessert .....
overall not a great experience .
from a place like maiya's expectations were more .....

Show me something which doesn't taste good !!

This was probably the 10th time I had been to Maiya's. Have been to all sections...Dancing kadai, Gujarati,South Indian meals and snacks. Perfect place to dine, which is hygienic with excellent food and service . Dancing kadai on the 5th floor serves North Indian cuisine. Mouth watering starters like Potli kebab and some other zucchini based starter(don remember the name) were excellent.The Gajar and palak soup was the best in soup section. Amritsari Kulcha, Laccha paratha,Dum Biryani, sabz kofta were perfectly cooked. Cucumber Dosa served on sundays only on the 1st floor south Indian snack section is my favorite. The entire hotel including the bakery is purely vegetarian. Eggless pastries, Icecreams and snack packs like boondi, rice kodubale and chakkli taste good and even the packing is so neat...Maiya's rocks !!

PS: A doctor in Jayanagar recommended us to go to Maiya's for its hygienic and well cooked food !!

Tasty & Affordable food

I visited this place before a month’s time with my family,

It was too crowded without any space to sit at all, we need to tell our name with no of people for lunch, each floor can accomodate
at least 70-80 people, they would start calling once the tables are free.

Unlimited lunch was priced at 125/- per person.

Menu

Grape juice in a (real silver glass)

three sabji’s
poori sagu,
bisibelebath & raitha
papad and fried oil snacks,
Rice, rasam , sambar ,
Alu fry,
Kheer,
Rasmalai,
Butter milk,
Curd rice,
Ice cream with fruits,
Pan and a thanks for visiting,

Unlike other hotels here they encourage to have more food, i you leave any food in the plate, the server politely inform not to waste any food,

You can see posters all over saying,

We don’t accept tips,

And you can actually see the whole kitchen and the cleanliness over there.

The waiting time is around 1 hour, so visit when you have enough time , and you are not heavily hungry.

Great service

Amazing Gujarati Food!

Usually people come here for dosas the coffee and everything else available on the first 2 floors.
But, to savour these dishes you have to go through crowds and the inconvenience of no parking.So for those who want authentic gujarati meals go to Svarna Mandir. Here ,they serve thalis including Gujarati delicacies such as roti ,tepla, baakri and dhokla with a simple ambience and a very reasonable price of 170 rs. Swarna mandir is a perfect place for a premium thali that is fit for a king!

Almost like waiting for Godot!

How long is too long a wait for a dosa? It's one of the most frustrating eating places to go to. The wait is endless, and the waiters don't care and don't listen.
I've been to Maiyas a couple of times and it's been consistently the same.
I would still gather up all my patience and deal with the wait, for the taste of their breakfast is good - the plain dosa especially, I'm not a fan of the Kara bath (it has too many spices)
But there's one thing for sure, I'll never step in there for lunch - not only is the thali very average - it's definitely not worth the wait!

Good but too costly - Pros and Cons

We had been to maiya's yesterday after going through positive responses from many. The food was tasty to a great extent except for coupe of things. We went to fifth floor which is exclusively meant for north indian dishes - Dancing Kadai. Mix Makai Shorba and Masala papad we ordered initially were disappointing. But rest of the items including the starter, main course and desserts were very tasty.

Pros: Most of the items we tasted were really good in taste and Hygienic. Service was very prompt. Ambiance was good and so was the decor.

Cons: Few items were very costly compare to other restaurants of the same standard. Lack of variety to choose from. Also one more negative point is that we cannot have north and south indian food together since we need to split the group and have food separately at different floors of the restaurant.

Final Rating:
Food Quality - 4/5
Ambiance - 4/5
Decor - 3.5/5
Service - 4/5
Price - 2/5 (Rs 45 for a slim nan is too much)
Theme - 2/5 (Splitting North, South and Gujarati section by floors)
Overall Rating - 3/5

Tech savvy and delicious

First I like about Maiya's is its locality, our very own jayanagar. Its tech savy, you can see servants holding iPhones to actually take down your order, its transferred to the kitchen and the billing section. Just love the dosa and tea that is served here and yes tea is served in silver cups... Loved the dal fry especially.. Considering all this wouldn't say its too costly..

Wait for Q's even after booking

Just because it is pure veg restaurant and nearby my place, we went out with our entire family. as you all know elders can't wait beyond lunch time due to their health problems, thats the reason why, we had booked the place earlier. But just because we reached late, they made us to stand in the normal Q all over again.
I guess its like a court, the judge calls you 3 times and then your time is lapsed. Forget about the food and the taste, doesnt matter too much, because there is nothing great that you have to go there.

Hype only

The food at maiyas is more of hype only.There are 100 better places than Maiyas that serve quality food and in a better ambiance..The Thali's are just ordinary and nothing great.In fact I tried the Gujrathi Thali that was mediocre and absolutly bakwas and had a stomach upset later.The way they herd people like cattle to have lunch is something that I will never appreciate and make sure never visit that place again

I don't really understand

well people say that u must go there...but what I feel is that if u wanna purchase sweets for some occasion then by all means go there but if u r planning to go there and enjoy a meal the forget it...no doubt its very affordable and the food is well lets say good for what you pay...but is nothing out of the ordinary kind good, i.e. not at all amazing...and why should i go there when there a 100 good places i could be... the staff seems rude and seems like they are rushing you into eating you food...also there are some infomercials on the TV which say stuff like don't laugh out loud because you are disturbing others...and I don't know and i don't care what kind of sick advice that is because if i wanted to have monotonous dinner i'd rather stay home and have PC dinner watching something i'd enjoy...basically they wanna tell you not to enjoy due to the fear of disturbing others around you....weird

the ambiance is again normal...just a daily kind of restaurant nothing exciting going on...and even before we could finish we were handed the bill....and I do not take it very well when i am still having my food and have not asked for the cheque myself...felt unwelcomed...any how not going there...giving it 2 stars since the food was not all the way bad

Mosquitoes and dogs at Maiya's restaurant

I happened to taste the food at Maiya's restaurant and it was nothing great as people portray. Moreover the restaurant is placed at public inconvinience. The crowd around the restaurant is horrendous and makes me feel that they are no better than dogs or mosquitoes. People park their vehicles almost everywhere around the restaurant and causes a huge headache to the administration. Moreover, Maiyas used his tactful influence got the adjoining road blocked for one-way traffic.

Maiya is a cheap imitation of MTR and it can get nowhere closer to its predecessor. I don't understand the attitude of people having waiting literally like dogs to fetch a cup of coffee there. I mean its no better than any.

THEY SERVE RACISM

it was indeed the most embaressing situation for me in my entire stay of 5 years in bangalore.i actually paid a price of being hindi speaking notrh indian in this outlet..i dont know about all but the particular waiter who served us was extraordinaryly rude,shameless,mannerless creature..he suddenly turned extra arrogant the moment i ordered in hindi...i went there with my brother and bhabhi who are from delhi..and i felt insulted taking them to maiya's...hygien take a big toss here..water glasses were extreamly dirty..i could see a lipstick mark on the fresh glass i was served...taste of the food is indeed good..but i will never suggest this place to any non kannadiga especially to a northie..i'll glad if the management responds back to this review...

As fast as u can!!

I have to appreciate the care taken when it comes to the quality of food hygiene and the service provided by the waiters, having said that I would never ever again set my foot into Maiya's because they don't care if you enjoy your food or not, they just want to feed you in a hurry and clear your plates off the table!!. Now what good is lunch without a little chit-chat with your family and friends at the table ?. Even before you've had a second bite of the previously server dish the next dish arrives, and all the waiter has to do is get the attention of people sitting at that table and mention the name of the dish instead the waiter repeats the name of the dish to each person sitting on the table which gets quite annoying at some point. Imagine having to listen to "aloo sagoo" 8 times!!!. Finally i would never set foot into a place where the restaurateur is more keen on "accommodating" more people (= more $$$) than letting people enjoy their food. Mr. Maiya am sorry you just lost truck loads of customers.

Highly overrated

Tried the special south indian thali and the regular south indian thali here. Both were mediocre. The food variety and service was quite poor. When they tell you how many dishes are part of the thalis, be aware that they are counting small things like two types of pickles + papad too. I dont even want to go into the quality and taste of the individual dishes. The waiters had absolutely no patience to even stop serving when we asked them to. As a result we ended up with a lot of food which we dint want to eat.
I hate being herded like sheep in a restaurant and that's exactly what happened here. On our first visit, there were 200 ppl waiting, so we went our way without entering. On our second visit, it was quite empty, but we were still treated like sheep. Not done at all!
Being a native of Bangalore, I had high expectations after hearing the raving reviews from fellow Bangaloreans. I was totally let down. All I can say is we seem to be an easily satisfied lot!

Good show

Went today and had gujrathib Thali on the 3rd floor. The standard Thali with unlimited serving was tasty, clean, neat and well served by well trained servers. I have tasted Guju food all over the country. This is very close to a good quality. Dokla was a bit hard.
Their retail outlet at the ground floor is the best. Decent , clean and moderatly priced.

I am sure Mr Maiya would not compromise on quality and I can see his vision to become a chain of restaurents in the medium term. He has good international exposure, and therefore he knows the nuts and bolts of this business right from the younger days. Emergency turned out to be a blessing in disguise for them.

All the best.

Yummie Gujrati thali

Maiya's is totally a vegetarian restaurant. I have tried the south Indian and Gujrati thali there. To be true the south Indian thali for the first time I had was gud but the next time when I dropped in, sorry to tell it was pathetic. Don't know why. After a few days we tried the Gujrati thali and it was real good. Yummie.... They give so many things to eat in that thali that there won't be any space left in your stomach. So this place is strictly prohibited for those who are on dieting:)
Happy Burping

Greasy Masala Dosas and Soda Rava Idlis

It's been that way since many of my visits to this restaurant. Most of my foodie contacts have agreed and expressed their grouse in common. Their regular Masala Dosa is done with too much of ghee and I find the first two bites - relishing. To finish the rest is a challenge. To ask for a Dosa with less ghee means no taste. The serving size does not match the value of Dosa - it didn't matter to me. When quality comes at a cost - it should also add to health and wellness of the customer. This matters a lot.

They can consciously reduce the soda in their Rava Idlis - or have they lost the measure when preparing for the masses?

If they can improve this - I shall surely feel more lighter in my stomach than my wallet :-)

Food is certainly refreshing then.

Easy and smooth

Been with family this evening to the Gujarati section. The Preplated Meal (Thali) was good and surprisingly large potions with polite and prompt service. The Raitha and the Kadi were a bit more sweet which even Gujarat does not eat. Otherwise the platter quality and quantity was more than enough.Price also reasonable and on par with Ahmedabad's high end Eateries. Paan to finish it off was wonderful.Thanks for good uncluttered space as well.

The most over - hyped and a complete NO-NO restaurant !!!

This happened on a sacred day – my mom’s birthday – which I will will never forget in my lifetime nor my family will.
As it was my mother’s birthday on June 26 2010 – we planned to celebrate her birthday in a special way .We all decided to take her out on a treat and get her a sumptous meal and end with a gift .So I called Mayya’s which is a sister concern of the word famous MTR - Mavalli Tiffin Rooms {a reputed organisation which is into food industry since 1924.
We booked a table under my mother;s name and I was sent a SMS to my number .The registration number was 75156250 and the timings was @ 9pm.The so called venue was Dancing Kadai.{I don’t know wat is d connection between north indian and dancing kadai.
Alrite we went ther by 8:30pm as I have heard that people wait hours together to get a seat.We were given a set for 7 at around 9:15pmThe place was full of Nepali or manipuri servers .I don’t get to connect the logic between north indian section and north indian people.Cant our own people serve better than them ?.A matter of 15 minutes akes a lot of diffrence.
We waited for around 15 minutes however no one came and took the order from our table.Is this called hospitality of MTR group?
Later we called a person who was magin the show {probably the supervisor} and trhis guy doesn’t seem to apoligise and cooly came and took the order without even apologisng.
Ok we ordered Veg pulav,Tandoor Roti,Subz Makai Soup, Msala Papad,Tamatar Dhania Soup,,Palak paneer soup , Dum aloo banaras ,Subz Kolaphuri,Kadhai Paneer ,Paneer butter masala , Butter masala , Butter Kulcha and last but not least Lassi !!! Had a great excitement after we ordered.!!!
Let me give a detailed review –
• Tamatar Dhania Soup,Palak paneer soup – Good – 4 stars
• Masala Papad – ok but was small in size – Rs 35 per plate – nothin great – jus some onions and tomato – not even lemons- we later asked for them which came after 10 minutes. – Average – 2 stars
• Tandoor Roti and Butter Kulcha – it was nice but everythin was cold – Average – 2 stars
• Veg pulav – Good – only thing it was nice – 5 stars
• Dum aloo banaras ,Subz Kolaphuri,Kadhai Paneer ,Paneer butter masala – nice but little salt less in every dish – ok ok – 3 stars .
• Lassi – Swet but this incident made itvery sour for the whole family – we ordered 6 lassis – we received lassis but to the shock we found small scraps og metal pieces.
When we escalted this to the management – they first misguided us by saying it’s a kind of spices.Lter we argued – than they apologised for he big mistake .This could have cost ou lives if we would have swalloed the metal pieces. ; - (

The heights of their hospitality is that they don’t even care to refill water .We had to call some 4 – 5 times to get it refilled.

Conclusion – A big No No to this overhyped hotel which is making money and not running business for hospitality.

Used to like it..but now..foods bad

The reason why MTR is so popular is because they do what they are good at.. South Indian Food...
Maiyas on the other hand wants to try its hand at everything...net result...all the food tastes bad...Had their Gujarathi food last week and as someone mentioned in an earlier review, it was too sweet..almost like the people cooking this have NO IDEA what Gujarathi tasted like..

FAIL !!!!

Food is pathetic in Maiya's, Jayanagar

"Gaining fame is difficult, but maintaining it is much more difficult"

My first experience of Maiya's was terrible. We visited Maiya for dinner and as usual we had to wait for 40 mins. I really did not understand why are people so crazy about Maiyas.

My experiences:

1. Tomato soup: very bad
2. Hara bara khabab: Literally this stuff was rotten and we had to complain about this to the manager and got some other starter.
3. The dancing kadai subz: I did not understand what is so special about this dish. It is defnitely not recommended.
4. Dum Biriyani: average
5. Curd rice: pathetic. It had already become saur and to minimize the saur taste, they had poured lots of sugar in it.

The food is heavily priced and not up to the standard.

I will never visit this restaurant again. I think management should consider this seriously and must try to keep up the standards. This might effect their reputation.

I just don't see what the big fuss is about

The first thing to answer is why do folks go to the original MTR. The answer is VERY simple. The quest for a retro-heritage type experience far outweighs the cost factor of what actually is very ordinary food. MTR is an institution by itself.

Maiya's attempts to duplicate that but instead, fails at recreating the retro environment which is what makes it's grand-uncle so popular and well frequented.

Instead, what you do get is food of acceptable quality at not so every-day prices. Throw in all round confusion with plates clanging, waiters yelling, kids running and customers yelling even louder, what you get is a cacophonous pile up.

The food while good, is drips with ghee and the management seems to think that a profusion of ghee makes everything better. #FAIL !!

The dosas are crisp, but suffer an over indulgence of ghee which makes you feel all greasy inside. The masala itself is good, and is probably the only redeeming factor in the whole dish.

The rava idli and msala does retain the taste from MTR, but by all means, DO avoid putting too much ghee on it to mask the taste.

Now, coming to the dinner/thali. At the South Indian section, expect to start off with a fruit juice (usually grape) and tomato soup. standard fare includes kosmari, rasam (this is to die for.. really) , sambhar followed by ghee rice/pulao/biriyani type/kichhdi, there usually is a sweet and a papad and the meal is finished off with curd rice and pickle.

Dessert is the ice-cream fruit salad. I suggest you get it when figs are in season. for those who indulge, beeda is served at the end.

While this is totally worthwhile in the middle of the week, during the weekends, you need to wait for hours and hours and I'm pretty sure that at least once a month the riot police come out in full force to keep the mob away.

The waiting area is non-existent as the crowd presses on to the stairwell and prevents people from coming down and getting off the elevator. The usher is quite harried and by the end of the evening is a raging mess given that he has to manage so many attitudes during the course of the evening.

The bottom line is, if you want to experience MTR food in South Bangalore, this is it. If you want a relaxed meal, then this is NOT it. Maiya's is good for an occasional eat, but by over doing it, it just becomes old.

Had a awful exp with Gujarathi food at maiya's

I wanted to have Gujarahi food and decided to go to Maiya's in Jayanagar. Maiya's server special Gujarathi thali's on Sunday for Rs 150/- after a long wait i got the table at 3rd floor.
The food was bad.. it was like a south Indian ( Udupi guy) trying hard to prepare guju food.. It was toooo sweet.
I have had best guju food in Bangalore . so i know Maiya's was really bad.

Even worse.. i got a hair in my dhai.. and when asked they changed the plate. The saabzi had too much of sugar and were over cooked in Oil. Dhokla was stale and very hard.

You could hammer a nail using the rotis and phulka.. it was hard as a flying disc.

To top it all i got a Hair again in my Ice cream. ice cream was bad.. but hair in it made even more awful.

All the manager could tell was sorry sir..
Bull shit..
I will strongly say please dont go this place.. Its un-hygienic and bad taste. You will be wasting your time and money and more than that will be disappointed.

To have such a disgusting food.. i don't believe myself that i traveled from Rajajinagar to Jayanar.

Good Masala Dosa

I loved their Masala Dosa and the accompaning chutney, though I wonder why they did not serve us sambhar.The idea of ghee on the dosa, gives you a splurging feeling. Overall a good option for good quality Dosa ( that is all what I tried.

Much Ado About Nothing

Yesterday we (family of seven) went to Maiya's in Jayanagar for lunch with "Great expectations" that turned to be "much ado about nothing". The place is neat and tidy, but crowded. The food is not worth its price of Rs.150/- per thali. The starter Grape juice in small Silver vessel is cool and good. Followed by small katori of Carrot Soup. One piece of "Mysorepak" and a cup of "Kheer" were the sweets.Then came the side dishes Kosumbari, Beans dry palya, Keere, Potato Palya and Pooris. Curd onion Pachadi. All are with normal taste. Next item, "Bisibele bath" was good. Rice , Sambar, "More Kuzhambu" , "Rasam", Fried Appalam, few pieces of Sandige ,Chips and cup of curd and pickles added numbers to items..
The "feast" ended with a watery fruit salad and Pan beeda.
Service is not bad.Other arrangements are good.
.
I do not understand what is special in the menu, which is available in many other good restaurants in the city for half the cost.
Caution: The small lift and narrow staircase and the bakery at the entrace do not help to clear the customers either way, in or out..
Table Reservation: Before going we tried to reserve our table over phone, but were not successful in getting the line or contact.
.
Car Parking: Since there is no space to park vehicles, you may have to search for a slot in neighbouring roads and lanes.

South Indian Pride

Too good place with prices reachable to the middle class community. They make and serve with dignity. Tradition is not forgotten here. Service is good.
WAITING for seat is common in all good restaurants. So nothing to crib about it.
I was surprised fist time when I ate Masala dosa here. They make it just the way I make it at home. MD is the best here and all over in Bangalore.
Other food is also too good here. Everything is just the way we prepare it at home the traditional way.
Hygenic place with the royal touch. I never had in silver utensils as my mom used to say that only kings' family would have in silver plates. I feel elated here.

Authentic food

Had been here for dinner on New Year. We had ordered Silver Thali. I guess around 40 items or so were served on our "silver" plate n silver tumbler. Almost all items on the plate were good, except few. The ambience is normal n serene. All in all, a unique New Year Experience. A good place to go on spl events.

Breakfast is OK.

Service was good. Prices are moderate.
We got Rava Idly, Saagoo Masala Dose, Vada and Kesri Bath for breakfast. Only Kesri Bath was not up to the mark. All the other items were fresh and probably as good as the best I hav had so far

Heavy Lunch .............

I had been to MTR's Maiya's at Jayanagar for lunch with two of my very close friends who were my school mates too. We waited till the clock struck twelve and then went to the first floor and occupied a table. I said we will have mini meals but both of them wanted full meals. I said ok, we will have full meals. First came the Grape juice in silver glasses. After that, a bowl of soup each. Then, the main course of food started, i.e., one dry palya, one gravy type palya, hot hot pooris, kosambari, uppinakai, etc. etc., then came the rice item, bisi bele bhath, plain rice, sambar, rasam, curd, and it went on and on. We could not eat everything. We were so full. Then we went for a round to 4th block complex, came backall three of us had hot hot cup of coffee and then dispersed. That was the day which i cannot forget. I had never had such heavy meal anyday in my life. wowwwwww.

Fine Dine- Well almost

Had heard about the Maiya's Fine Dine. A 40 item meal at 350 bucks a head and had t check it out.
We made it to the 3rd floor through the overcrowded waiting area with a guy bellowing people's names.
On the 3rd floor is a small area with maybe 30 seats for this fine dine experience. Decor nothing to write home about but wait all in Black. All crockery and cutlery in solid silver.
Asked for a menu to understand what the 40 items were and was given a indicative menu with the rider that specific items could be replaced.
They have tried to serve the meal in courses like in the west and that was intrigued me. Does a South Indian meal lend itself to being served course wise with matched items? Well read on.....
First came the drink- Grape Juice or Ginger juice and opted for the grape juice.
Then came the tomato soup that was served with a apple, pineapple, capsicum salad and a usli made of black channa. Slightly surreal experience when food started coming in courses but hey what the heck...
The next course was Puri with mix vegetable sagu and the delectable potato sagu.
After that came a Bengali sweet..some kind of a sweet sandwich.
Then came Shavige bisbele bath matched with a pachadi..awesome.After that came Puliyogare and decided to skip it.
Then came kadubu (a spicy idli like preparation that looked like a Dhokla) with pineapple gojju and a chutney.
Then another sweet Halbai.
There were two palyas- Beetroot and gorikai.
Then came white rice with tomato rasam, jeera rasam, a thick sambar along with 2 kinds of papad, sandige, fried chillis(balaka) and a pickle.Man we were stuffed though each item above was consumed maybe a table spoon of each.
Then came curds and butter milk.Then a much needed digestive.
After that hesarbele payasa. Then pastries and hot chocolate fudge.
That was a lot of food...
The experience I think is unique but is marred by the fact that it is too wide a menu meaning you eat a tsp or a tbsp of most things. You really are in no shape to eat more of what you liked or you would miss out on experiencing the whole menu..and therein lies the lesson - a meal structured like this does not lend itself to course wise serving. If they insist on serving a course wise serving it would have been better if customers knew the menu of the day so they could be selective in what they ate. Else a Thali concept with most items that would be served on the Thali so one knows what it entails and one can prioritize :-).
Would one go back again- Only if one was taking a foreigner out to showcase S.Karnataka cuisine or one's NRI cousin types who would be willing to cram in the variety in fear of not getting that variety in the land where they live.

Each item on the menu probably deserved 4 stars was very good but the whole thing just did not come together and hence the 3 stars.

Chaotic Place, Arrogant Staff

Well..well..I dont know if I qualify to write the review because I never got to taste the food, but I got a taste of the place and the arrogant staff so I think I can write a review.

Chaotic Place, Arrogant Staff are the only words which come to mind when I even think about this place. When we went at 12 noon on a weekend, there were atleast some 70-80 people waiting..forget someone welcoming you and all. we were told that "YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL 3:00 PM". However good the food might be NO one would wait for 3 Hrs.

I hope I'll never ever go to this place.

Great Food, but arrogant staff

This is a modernised version of the Lalbagh MTR. We got there at 11:45 and were made to wait in the cramped 2nd floor lobby. The door opened at 12:00 and we were escorted to a specific table. The waiters were truly arrogant - there were really arguing with a few folks who wanted to sit by the window. Nope - you get to sit where these idiots tell you to. On weekends, you have just 1 option - the 130 buck thali. you get 24 items with this - even the pickle counts - so in reality what you get are puris, dry curry, bhaji, rice, sambar, rasam, bisisbela, papad, a sweet and fruit salad with ice-cream in the end. I must say the taste was quite similar to the original MTR place. Overall decent food, but get ready to be treated like shit. The management really needs to train the staff to be more courteous and more service oriented. Even the Sagars are far better from a service perspective.

Blissful Breakfast

I?ve been here a few times now and I can vouch and say, its one of the best places to have Blissful Breakfast and feel blessed about it!

2 friends and me decided to catch up on a Saturday to have some heavy breakfast at Maiya?s and I was supposed to go early and catch hold of the tables as its extremely difficult to immediately find one and at times, the waiting time will extend from a few minutes to an hour!
There I was, exactly at 8:50AM on a Saturday, thinking I?ve spoilt my early morning sleep on a weekend, almost cursing my friend for making me do this, I went to the first floor. The guy there said, ?Please goto the 2nd floor madam. You?ll find the table there immediately?
I went to the second floor, and oh goodness gracious!! I dint have to wait. I walked in and so comfortably, happily occupied the table and waited for my friends. One joined immediately and we could not wait longer. I ordered a rava idly and she ordered vada with sambhar.

Without much wait, the vada and the lusciously delicious rava idly arrived and we literally started digging into it. With the rava idly, a small cup full of ghee was served which I poured all over my idly and the regular taste enhancers sagoo and coconut chutney made a perfect combination. The best, softest, tastiest rava idly ever with lots of cashew nuts in it. While we were eating this, the other friend arrived and he ordered for a Rava Idly too. It seems to be the favorite amongst us. Looking at the 2 of us, the other friend who?d ordered the vada, ordered for a rava idly too.

For the second round, I ordered a plate of Kesari bath and the late comer friend wanted a masala dosa. The color of the kesari bath with its saffron flavor, made my day :)
My friends who tasted had all praises for it and I had to share it with them unwillingly. My friend alone enjoyed the lip smacking dosa with ghee on it. Later, he suggested, there?s something that can never be missed here. And that?s the Badam Halwa.

Wow! Wow! He wasn?t not wrong at all. With the right amount of sugar, the grounded Almond with the saffron flavor, placed in the mouth don?t know when it disappeared and settled in our stomachs.

Of all the breakfasts that I keep having week on week, this one proved to be one of the best and we were ready to have another round of nap after this!!

Impostor Syndrome- But it works

This is clearly an MTR clone.
Slavering masses in the waiting room included . What's fascinating is they have even tried to replicate the classic long queues and writing the name in the list that happens at MTR .

Two differences . Authority . Efficiency.
The young guardian-guy at the door does not have the j'en sais quois of the MTR's Terror-of-the-I-Floor ( or the half mast dhoti, I must add !) and also his sheer efficiency and stentorian voice. He looks nervously at his diary ( where the magic phrase 'Vijay plus 2 Party' resides) rather than glare steely- eyed at the hungry wolf packs rushing up to him , as his more experienced MTR counterpart effortlessly does. Result - its like nettles or dogs, the customer instinctively recognises weakness , and he's confused putty.
Recipe for chaos.

Anyway , off we go to Jayanagar for our delayed Sunday breakfast at 1030 am , traveling many miles and crossing several seas- Vijay ( who found the place at first ) , spouse and me .

A brand new building methinks, and we enter through their sweet counter( MTR again ?) and many displays of mysore paak, and champakali later , we finally get into the real thing. We spend a few hours going up and down three flights of the narrow staircase, in happy confusion ,trying various floors till the voice announces - 'Vijay - 3 member party ', and battling large crowds, we throw ourselves in through the just opened door in an ecstasy of expectant delight.

Its bright, clean, and new. We sit only after we anxiously check on the dosa availabilty .Its critical to our survival, and central to the theme of Sunday breakfast .
Its there. Life is good. We order 3 .
In a hurry to ensure we get the breakfast and not lunch - its already 12 - we immediately order like its going out of style. Rava idlis , pongal, kesari bhath we say , without checking the menu . And three coffees.

Dosa - with the miniature ghee dabba- is a near clone of MTR. Crisp triangle on a little plate , just a little sour , as it should be, served with rich green coconut chutney and pallya - the real thing . Super .We do the 'mmm, goood', in a TV commercial way , and sit still for a bit - happily awash with South Indian cholestrol , and instantly full . Also instantly ashamed of clearly overordering. But hell, who cares.

Rava Idli - ditto MTR , ghee included , but too dry. Sagoo good.
Pongal creamy and flavorful , but they should serve it with gojju , not raita.
Kesari bhath is with semia not rava, and is again dry and heavy .
Vijay said that the fruit salad is in a different league, but we had already started groaning at the thought of any mention of food, by then.
We saw fluffy poori-sagoo pass by , and although our eyes interestedly followed its progress, clear signals from tummy ( 'No , i am NOT ready for a size upgrade just yet ') reminded us that the eyes had it.
Silver MTR look alike tumbler aside , coffee still not nice. Its is strong ,but secretly replete with malai , and I hate malai, so i pass.

Service is pleasant but confused . THe waiters spend time going round and round . Food eventually arrives on table though. Always a good sign. Good progress.

Can't say much on prices as Vijay grabbed the bill and held on for dear life. Presume you can eat there without winning the KBC sweepstakes. There is a Rs 100 buffet breakfast that needs exploration next time.

The ambience is clean and bright, and the airconditioning is a boon.

Altogether nice.

However, if I had to weigh waiting for an hour at MTR and as long at Maiyas, you're right , I will probably plump for the Magnificent MTR.

Maiya's Jayanagar is Useless Place

Hi,

This place is quite ordinary folks. I went there with my wife on 5/7/2009. Reached the place by 12.30 pm. There is one joker near the stairs who takes down your name in a book. By 12.50 they started sending people belonging to the 1 st batch to the 1st floor. Though I should have been in the first batch the joker near the stairs who took my name missed it. So I had to finally go in the 3rd batch. That is me and my wife were allowed to go to the 2nd floor only at 1.15 pm after 45 minutes wait.

There is absolute chaos near the stairs taking you to 1st,2nd and 3rd floor. Then again in 2nd floor we had to wait outside the lunch hall for another 10 minutes. Its just crazy with people falling on top of each other to enter the hall.
Serving techinique:
They can have around 60 people in a hall. They start serving the 125 Rs lunch to all the people together. Its more like a marriage hall. In kannada its called 1st panthi, 2nd panthi etc. Complete bull shit.
They just rush you and dump food as fast as possible. With in 20 minutes everything is served . The menu is:
i) Fruit juice initially: Taste is good. Quantity is very
less.
ii) Churry and other sides: Taste is good.
iii) Tomato Soup: Cold and sick. Avoid it.
iv) Poori: They serve 3 poori. Its very good. Its supposed to be unlimited but these morons are stingy.
v) Fried rice: Its ok. Nothing great.
vi) white rice: Rice quality was ok.
viii) Rasam and samber : Its ok but not great.

Also kindly check the plates. Its not always clean.
Finally no finger bowl is also given. You have to go in to a small, dingy handwash place .
Overall its a useless experience.
The Maiya's in BTM Layout is far better.

Nice food... an alternate choice to MTR

I visited this place with my friend. Though the the waiting time was too much but, I think it is worth waiting for the kind of nice food they serve.
The place was very clean and food was very nice.
They served tomato soup, poori, 4 different curries and one sweet poley. They served small glass of grape juice. Then comes hot hot bisi bele bath. Then they served plain rice, dal, sambar and curd. They served a different mango chatnee which looked like chilli sauce but tasted very nice. They gave small cup of fruits salad with ice-cream. And all these for Rs. 125/-. I thought its very reasonablly priced.

They could improve upon the ice-cream quality and waiting time.

Its worth visiting this place. Its better to go there 1/2 hr before ur lunch time. So that u might get a seat by your regular lunch time.

Simply awsome

Wow.. i'm had been to this place today a couple of hours back and i just couldn't walk out of this place. My tummy was full and it still wanted more :) And i could barely walk out of the place :)

Restaurant food cannot get any closer to home food !! Only problem is the waiting (approx 30mins+). But i absolutely wouldn't mind waiting for 30mins for such a great food.

At 125Rs for lunch.. you cannot beat it. Very clean and tidy place, excellent & courteous staff.

Overall... We're going there for breakfast tomorrow morning.

Awesome south indian food!

I have been a die hard fan of MTR (Lalbagh Rd) since ages. But the location made it such a hassel to get there. But thanks to Maiya's, to its central location in Jaynagar, Bangalore, getting there is hassle free. The masala dosa and rava idli has been my favorite. But they also have this amazing meals with over 15 to 18 varieties of dishes. They even have come up with the breakfast buffet, which is simply awesome for just a 100 bucks. Overall, i love this place and am a regular customer!!

Nice, hygenic place. Consistently good food

Went to this place with about a dozen relatives and their kids for breakfast and lunch. The staff were accommodating and friendly. They were quick with their service. The food always pleases here.

We asked for an ice-cream after our meal and were not too pleased that they charge Rs. 45 for it. It's just 2 scoops of mediocre ice-cream over a few bits of fruit. Not worth that, but the overall experience is good.

This place is about 35%-50% more expensive than the branch in BTM Layout. I'm guessing it's because of the increase in real-estate costs.
