We visited Maha during our trip to Melbourne on recommendation from a local. Great inventive food, informal but efficient service, reasonable prices. What's not to like?

Maha is a truely magical place. Then again I am biased. My fiance chose this gorgeous basement city restaurant to propose. Being Maltese I can say that Maha does Middle Eastern/Maltese cuisine just right. Exotic, but still accessible and presented perfectly. Just enough of every course to fill you up without boating you and being excessive and yummy cocktails. Everything... More

Just amazing futuristic cuisine with a deep exotic background. Famous chef inspired by incredible Turkish and Greek traditional cuisine created a true masterpiece. After our winter trip to Turkey we missed allot Mediterranean rich flavours, tastes, aesthetic and colorit. Maha restaurant was recommended by our turkey travel expert, oh that was such a good advice. So I also recommend to... More

We had been looking forward to Maha for quite some time and were excited to finally be sampling the delights. We went as a group of four and found the reservation process really good. We selected the 120 per head banquet and were really happy with the food and presentation ... However the service was bad, like leave you standing... More

Puts a great experience all around. Beautiful food, thoughtfully presented by attentive waiting staff. A good range of wine by the glass is available at a reasonable cost. I would recommend this restaurant with confidence. We will certainly be back.

The food, service and staff at Maha is outstanding. Having watched Shane Delia's Spice Journey on TV, couldn't wait to experience it at his restaurant. Sunday lunch is a Spice Journey four course sharing experience. So good went twice! If you delight in Turkish and Middle Eastern cuisine, the food at Maha will not disappoint. The outstanding food was complemented... More

We had the 4-course menu which was delicious. I don't eat seafood and they tailored the meal to suit my needs. From the food to the service I cannot fault anything. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful food, excellent service and a great wine list. We asked for a substitute main dish for the set menu and the request was not a problem at all. In fact we were told on arrival any dietary requirements could be met. We just had the two course menu with a small selection of entrees and then the main course... More
