I've visited this restaurant for lunch by myself. The moment that I entered the restaurant I fell in love with the interior design. The decor was elegant, vibe was great and the lighting was quite romantic! The service was great and the food was absolutely...More

We dined here years ago and soon after it opened - and have raved about it ever since. On our recent trip to Melbourne we returned to Maha - with a little trepidation: could it be as good as we remembered? We had the 4...More

Is this restaurant Attica or Vue de Monde ? No, it is not but that doesn't mean it isn't a very memorable experience with very high quality food. The atmosphere is both cosy/warm/inviting/relaxing and also at the same time a little cramped but that is...More
