    Probably one of the best meals I've ever had! Lovely ambiance and wonderful service. I really enjoyed the little takeaway bread recipe - it was a nice little finishing touch to an all-round great experience. I'll definitely be returning in the future!

    Absolutely superb. They were packed which I assume is the norm. Service was spot on with very professional, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. We decided on the 6 course degustation with the indulgence wine match. Everything was absolutely faultless. The flavours and balance of the dishes is to be commended. Best food we have eaten in a very long time. Thank you.

    Delicious food! This was course 3 of 4 and we were truly very full. We didn't book and luckily got a seat at the bar on an early Saturday evening.

  • 5Lyn C. 1 year ago
    I love the food here. The sharing set menu is generous. The food tastes wonderful, and the wine list pretty varied and a fun way to try some things you will never find at the shops. Service is also flawless. Never a step (or bite) wrong.

    I almost missed it along Bond street, at low light was hard to read the name on the door. I remember more the 'touch to open' sign. When I got inside I was greeted promptly and escorted to our table. Decided on the 6-course meal, no regrets with this decision. Every single meal was delicious and tasty. Thank you for swapping lamb to fish just for me. I am not a fan of lamb and it was no fuss to serve fish as a substitute for one person. Table service was impeccable, food came at a steady pace and staff knew their dishes well. The bread and hummus were to die for, I could've had just that for dinner and I would've been happy. Perhaps, the only suggestion is offering alternative dessert with the 6 course, a chocolate fan here. Nice touch of the donut with turkish delight as a birthday extra for a friend - reason why we were out for dinner.

    Fabulous place. They cater for vegans, vegetarians and carnivores as well as pescetarians. We celebrated a friend's birthday here. Food was amazing. Service is perfect, attentive but not intrusive. Decor is beautiful and it's peaceful. One can actually talk instead of shouting at each other above loud music. The 4 course banquet, which consisted of many small sharing plates, was what we decided upon. It was a great choice. Can't remember having such a delicious meal as this for a very long time.

    Came to Maha the week before valentines and the service was impeccable and the food was delicious and faultless. Ingrid was very hospitable and Chris was Accommodating. . Nick ensured outstanding dining experience that I have never personally experienced. Consequently Maha has the outstanding reputation that it has because they know how to treat their customers. Very highly recommended.

  • 5Nick B. 1 year ago
    Food was amazing and very good value. The 7 course banquet with wine pairing was incredibly good and the staff were highly knowledgeable about the wines. The atmosphere is nice and calm, music is a nice level so you can still talk to people across the table without having to shout and the drinks were delicious also. Highly recommended.

  • 5Lisa G. 8 months ago
    We ordered Maha Go and were glad we skipped lunch and started eating at 3pm not finishing until dessert at 10pm - It was an all day graze! The food was exceptional and there was so much of it. We’ll be coming back to try the other banquets

    Just went for my first time and it was great. The staff were super friendly, the food was so yummy and we loved the place. Split a mushroom burger and cheeseburger along with some mashed potatoes. Server was super nice about my picky eating and complicated order which I really appreciate!

  • 5Jennifer M. 10 months ago
    I don't know why it took me so long to write this review. This was the best dining experience of my life! Seriously! We had the vegetarian three course meal and every dish was delectable. The restaurant is pricey, but worth it. I will definitely go back next time I'm in Melbourne. Highly recommend

    I went here for my 21st birthday with my boyfriend and had such an amazing experience. The service was wonderful, we had a lovely waiter that gave us great recommendations and educated and explained the food we were eating. She was so nice and professional. The atmosphere was so cosy, comfortable and intimate, the place was decorated so nicely and lighting was dimmed. I tried so many new flavours and dishes and I loved them all, it was such a nice way to experience modern middle eastern cuisine. It was such a treat to go to a nice restaurant and taste such beautifully thought out food, I didn't even feel out of place or anything, it was such a mix of people and felt really comfortable. They gave us their bread flour and recipe to take home which I think is a great touch to make your customers feel special and part of the family.  I can't wait to come back here again, was truly an unforgettable experience for me that was made so special. The owner has really thought about what they want this restaurant to be and it shows through their food, service and overall experience. Amazing work Maha!

    No words can explain how amazing the food here is. Went here for my birthday and had a vegetarian share platter.. absolutely incredible flavours and portion sizes with pairing wines. One of the best restaurants in Melbourne

  • 4Emran E. 1 year ago
    Food ,ambience and service was great. Sadly wont be going as a regular due to the lack of menu options and choices ?

  • 4Helen B. 1 year ago
    As a group of 6 business colleagues, we all agreed that the food was delicious but our waiter/sommelier was extremely pompous!

  • 2Alexia K. 1 year ago
    Did not enjoy it at all.

  • 2Alon H. 1 year ago
    Before we even started our meal the service was already poor. The staff did not make us feel comfortable upon seating or throughout the meal. The ambience of the restaurant is really beautiful, smooth lounge music makes the space a comfortable place for a meal. The food was enjoyable but was missing the wow factor that you'd expect for fine dining. Would have definitely made a return visit if it weren't for the attitude of the staff.
