Eat All You Can @ MAYA Steamboat & BBQ

As we were contemplating where to celebrate Mom’s birthday, we bumped into the owner of MAYA Steamboat & BBQ in town, and “ting”, a light bulb came on in our heads and it was instantly confirmed that MAYA would be the venue.

Knowing that MAYA, located directly opposite the Shell Station along Jalan Sultan Idris Shah, has a garden setting as its restaurant, we decided to be there earlier before the dinner crowd to enjoy its ambience.

For the steamboat, there are two soup bases available: Chicken or Tom Yum. Choose either one and then take your pick of the many raw items available on the menu. Then start dunking everything into the hot pot.

Steamboat is one of the most popular choices for dining, especially during the cold weather, and is a great “shared meal” among family and friends. It’s also versatile because each person can get what he or she likes and put them into the hot pot, or opt for the grill at the same time. The tricky part is knowing when your food is cooked, especially for those who are not savvy in the kitchen.

Now, you might be wondering why there is a price difference on different days of the week. On weekdays, prawns and lamb are not served. However, this is compensated with more chicken options, meaning, there are four flavours of marinated chicken thighs on weekends but on weekdays, there are SIX. That’s two more.


The restaurant is currently on a Hari Raya break, so the new menu options and pricing begin on Tuesday, 25th April. MAYA Steamboat & BBQ is open from 6pm until 11pm daily for dinner and supper. With a large seating capacity, you can take your time to dine while catching up with loved ones over the meal.
