Participant: Maya’s South Indian Cuisine
by Johnathan L. Wright
Maya’s opened in late November 2020 in South Reno after moving from its original West Street Market storefront in downtown Reno. Owner Anitha Chiranjivi prepares idli, dosa, stews, curries and other dishes she learned growing up in Chennai in South India.
Most menu items are organic, gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan, and most cannot be found at any other Indian restaurant in Northern Nevada.
“Those Indian dishes that many people are familiar with, I explain they are from other parts of India,” Anitha says. “Maya’s menu is all dishes that I make at home for my family. It’s typical home cooking. If they want it, I always give people a sample to try.”
For those with pure food indulgence in mind, come sate your desires with our ever changing internationally and seasonally inspired small plates.Anitha Chiranjivi, owner
