Best for Trendiness - Expert review of Maya Bay

Thai dining ... with Keke and Ringo?

The Maya Bay Thai restaurant opened late last year, following up the success of the Maya Bay Japanese next door. It’s a tasty place, where Thai fabrics and flowers mix with a slightly colonial style in a successful contemporary blend. The music is soft, and there’s a suggestion of incense wafting about. I’d guess that zenitude is the aim.

And the Thai cooking is quite interesting enough to tempt those who think they’ve eaten it all. Dishes like red curry of lamb with basil will be familiar, spring rolls with foie gras perhaps a little less so. I’m not sure how often they eat those in Bangkok. They should, though. They’re great. And, for Monaco, The Maya Bay is not a bank-breaker.

While there, you might like to keep an eye out for Ringo Starr and Flying Finn Keke Rosberg. Both apparently have apartments in the block above the restaurant.
 

Food and drink: 

Excellent Thai cuisine – with a spectacularly good chicken curry served in a coconut shell, sea-bass en tempura and wok-sauté’d noodles with shrimps being among the stand-outs.

Ambience: 

Cool, calm and very relaxing in a civilised sort of way.

Service: 

Efficient and friendly.

Location: 

On Avenue Princesse Grace, quite near the Sporting Club.

Price advice: 

There’s an excellent lunch-time menu at just 17.90 euros. It changes daily, so you might like to check on the web-site to see what’s on offer on the day you’re thinking of going. Expect from around 41.50 euros for a three-course dinner - though quite a lot more if you choose à la carte.

Me and my fiancé visited Monaco in august we dined at Maya bay. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. august is a busy time of year and we managed to get a table the service was excellent and the food was world class I would recommend the lamb and the pork was the best I have ever had it melted in your mouth. Price was what is expected of Monte Carlo meal for two with 1glass of wine and 3 drinks was about 150.00 well worth the money all round fantastic restaurant definitely go back there
