Save Room for a Slice at Baklava at Maya Bistro

Since April, Maya Bistro has been impressing locals with their truly authentic Turkish and Mediterranean eats. This family-owned and -operated restaurant on Lee Highway has brought a new type of cuisine and everyone is loving it and coming back for more. 

Their menu is extensive with options ranging from quick casual bites to the option to enjoy a truly gourmet multi-course meal. If you’re looking to go the casual route, just grab a bunch of friends and adopt a tapas-style mindset, choosing a selection from the hot and cold mezze options on the menu. You can’t go to a Mediterranean restaurant and not try the hummus and falafel, so that is a must. Their baba ganoush and zucchini cakes are also brag-worthy. 

If you’re taking the gourmet date night route, you can really go all out. Start with the Maya Mezzes for 2, where they’ll pre-select appetizers for two. Then, it’s entree time. There’s something for everyone regardless of dietary restrictions, tons of pescatarian and vegetarian options, while also serving up lamb and steak for the carnivores in the group. End the meal with a slice of their baklava!
