We came to Melbourne for one specific reason, to dine at Maha and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is located in a small lane in what appears to be a cellar, the lighting inside is soft and mellow but the restaurant is modern. Looking...More

I have been to Maha several times since it opened more than ten years ago and have to say this was the best yet. Refreshing to see a Melbourne institution continually evolving and pushing the boundaries, with no sign of becoming stagnant or slowing down....More

From the selection of Meze to the Quail, beautifully cooked lamb and donuts, it was an amazing Mediterranean meal. It was worth the flight to Melbourne. Highly recommended.

Wish I could have rated it higher as the food was very good. The service, for a fine dining restaurant of this calibre, was terrible though. We had the 8 course degustation menu. There were gaps of 15 mins+ between courses (which in itself didn’t...More

Maha was an amazing experience for my husband's birthday. The 4 course souffra vegetarian degustation menu is fabulous with paired wines. Recommended!!! We were treated to a special treat to the wine cellar and a special birthday tour of the kitchen by the head chef....More

Food was wonderful and fabulous experience. The service was a little off - we opted for the wine matching and we were given the wrong wine twice (once it was corrected). Think we confused the staff by both having the veggie degustation meal which they...More

Maha is a treat you will wish you could have every week. The 4 course souffra vegetarian degustation menu is fabulous. You could have paired wines but I could never make it through all the wine. The food on the other hand is so delicious...More

My boyfriend took me here as a surprise and the staff were lovely. The food was amazing. The 6 course menu even had me full. The cocktails were amazing. One day I would love to go back.

Firstly, We're not ones for fine dining and fancy nights out for dinner, but we thought we'd treat ourselves. We signed up for the 8 course degustation with matching wines. As a Vegan I was a little iffy about spending $225 on food and wine....More
