Maya Bistro Now Open on Lee Highway

A new restaurant has opened along Lee Highway.

Maya Bistro, which offers Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine in a sunny, modern setting, recently opened its doors. Spurred by positive reviews on Nextdoor and Yelp, customers flocked to the restaurant Friday night, causing it to run out of some of its menu items, staff said Saturday.

Open for brunch, lunch and dinner, Maya Bistro is family-run and those working in the front and back of the house over the weekend included a brother, sister, father and grandmother.

Menu items include moussaka, sandwiches including falafel and adana, grilled meats on skewers, and several varieties of pide flatbreads.

Maya Bistro is located at 5649 Lee Highway in the Leeway-Overlee neighborhood, in the former Nook Play Space storefront.
