It's not a cheap degustation, but the food is really delicious. The service unfortunately needs a lot of work. At the beginning of the meal we were looked after, by the end, we were getting our matching wine pours a full 30 minutes before the...More

Lovely meal with some old friends from Paris who know their cuisine; Maha didn't let us down. Had the 8 course degustation for the first time and it was great; only one shared plate course unlike the others which is nice for a change. Service...More

Maha was a great fine dining experience for me and my friends. We had the vegetarian 6 course dinner menu with matching wine selection. It was not cheap. But, every single dish had its own flavour and was absolutely delicious. It was a feast for...More

Lovely restaurant that didn’t disappoint. Fantastic food and equally good service. Excellent venue. We went for a family birthday and were well serviced including obligatory candle. Best hummus I’ve ever eaten

can't fault anything really from the food side.....perfectly balanced....modern takes on simple dishes but keeps true soul of them......only gripe could be that the decor needs a major face lift....too dark dingy and depressing.......though I am more than happy to put up eating exceptional food...More

My wife and I had the 6 course degustation lunch menu with the matching wine selection. The flavours in some of the dishes were stunning. The use of spices added hidden surprises and lifted the intensity of some of the dishes. We each had our...More

Overall the service was attentive and highly polished. The arrival unfortunately was not which was disconcerting. Our party of 3 waited in a very cold foyer. A staff member appeared only to be told to wait until she retrieved the coats for about six people...More

We both loved the food here -- right up our palates. It says "middle Eastern" but was quirky and inventive. The dishes were very complex (teetering on the "too" but not...) and we liked all of them. Took the $115 menu with the wine pairings;...More

Four of us dined here and we selected the four courses for $ 85 per person. The Hummus was good. The taste on the two types of fish was okay but nothing special. Lamb shoulder was good as was the Octopus but in terms of...More

Short answer: No. They do course-by-course banquets and can be quite expensive. The food is creatively presented and can feature unusual features. Not sure if kids will appreciate that.
