Came here with family who had hyped it up..and it lived up to it for sure!

Staff are all so polite and professional and on the ball. Very knowledgeable on wines too. They also enquired about any food allergies or requirements too.

We had the 4 course menu and every single thing was delicious. Even the salads, rice and vegetables were such highlights.

Trying to wittle down favourites is a hard task but I would recommend the 4 course sharing menu because the smoked hummus, chemen cured swordfish, victorian asparagus, slow roasted lamb shoulder and aged persian rice were all so impressive, delicious and FULL of flavour!

I cannot wait to go back and try some more incredible food!

My family and I did the four course menu, everything about it was incredible. The service was top, I can see why this is one of the best in Melbourne. Can’t wait to come back and bring my friends. The cocktails are so creative also!

We ended up at Maha by chance after leaving a restaurant where we had booked for dinner, where the extreme noise was not conducive to an enjoyable evening. Although we had no booking the staff at Maha were welcoming and set us up at the communal table on the mezzanine level.
We ordered the four course banquet, which turned out to be the best meal I can remember in a very long time. Service was prompt, staff were friendly and the food sublime.

While the food was tasty and the service was competent, my husband and I left Maha feeling like we'd been fleeced. We paid $190 for 2 courses: bread, dips, snacks in the first; lamb and salad in the second. The glasses of matched wine were scant, and the portion sizes seemed less than generous.

Sadly, would neither recommend Maha nor return.

It’s 5 years since we first visited Maha and things have changed. Full house on Tuesday night but after a large group left on a special progressive dinner murmur/noise level dropped and we settled in for a fantastic 5 course set meal. Service is first class with knowledgeable waiters providing detailed description of courses. Excellent wine choice. The meal was just as good as the first time.wow wow. Everything was superb. It’s not a cheap eat but worth it for a special occasion. There are other options for meals from 2 courses to 6 I think. It’s an experience to eat at Maha. Thanks if I could give 6 stars I would.
