The name mai'da is pronounced maa-e-da, and simply means dining table or banquet. Our cuisine is truly Indian, with a real emphasis on using the freshest ingredients and reducing wastage, a passion for cooking combined with attention to detail means we do not use frozen meat or poultry and our fish is from sustainable sources, mindful of our enviornmental responsiblity, most of our ingredients are from local suppliers and of English origin. Also at Maida like in India, we meticulously combine various spices and vegetables to bring forth vivid colours and unique flavours to our menu. Food is prepared afresh and not as a permutation of base sauces, a far cry from the generic curry houses of today's Britain. To futher the theme of wholesome Indian food, and for you to enjoy it in its true sense, we are a completely non-alcoholic restaurant. We believe good food should be experienced by the palette, unadulterated. Open Mon to Fri: 12 to 3pm & 6 to 11pm, Sat & Sun: 2 to 11pm.
