Situated in a lane way that gives no real hint of anything much in it, Maha is downstairs behind a simple sign, very subtle, very understated, and VERY Melbourne. We sat in a booth with candles lit around us, having arrived for a Sunday dinner and were offered drinks and cocktails to start, as well as choosing sparkling or still... More

An understated glass door opens to an overwhelming gastronomical experience. The restaurant is dimly lit, maybe a little noisy, but tables not too close. Our five course degustation with matching wines surprised with every mouthful. It was all so delicously unpredictable. The flavours were delicate yet remained on the palate. Our sommelier dscribed the wines which were sourced from five... More

Chose the four course sharing menu with wine pairing and loved every morsel. Our server, Marjorie, was delightful and made our experience very special. Good food, lovely atmosphere, enthusiastic servers all combined to make a perfect evening.

Recently had a big birthday here in their private dining room and was just delighted. I have also been a few times for lunches and dinners. Can't fault the service, staff or cuisine. Definitely a hot favourite of mine and I would recommend for a special, more intimate occasion or larger get togethers.

Situated in a quiet back street in Melbourne it is a warm and inviting den of tasteful decoration and lighting effects. Spacious dining so plenty of privacy for conversation. Plenty of course options on the set menus of 2,3,4, or 5 courses and vegetarian options also. Fine dining with lots of small tasty dishes to sample. All beautifully presented and... More

A lovely set course meal spoiled by the constant trying to up sell us to spend more money. Not appreciated. Took the edge off then meal. Other than that, we had a great meal in a wonderful restaurant. We would go back.

Loved the experience at Maha. We even saw Shane Delia. He is absolutely gorgeous. The atmosphere and ambience was fantastic. The food was great. I do think it's slightly on the expensive side, however if you are celebrating a special occassion or anniversary, it's worth bookin.

I had the Sunday set menu today matched with wines by Maha's Sommellier. The food was exceptional and just kept coming. I actually couldn't fit dessert. There was such a great mix of tastes to discover from cured olives, hummus and chickpeas, pork belly with crispy rice and fennel puree, lamb tagine, delicious zuchinni sides and barramundi. Heaps of other... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
