Once again the meal at Maha was exceptional – this restaurant just goes from strength to strength. We opted for the now old favourite 4 course Souffra menu with its eclectic mix of middle eastern flavours and aromas. The truly stand-out dishes were the roast...More

Food is great especially my favourite....the rabbit, ambience is great, service was good but I feel the wait staff were tense and tentative. The wonderful food does all the talking so to the wait staff, just relax and chill out! Smile even.

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

One of our party had an allergy and they were terrific. They even double checked about a particular dish later on in the meal. You'll have no problem.
