For flavours and textures that inspire and delight, the most exciting Middle Eastern experience in Melbourne is here at Maha.
Let our innovative and exciting menus take you on a journey through The Middle East without leaving the CBD of Melbourne. With bold flavours and spices, our menu is a fusion of Shane’s Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences.
For a truly unique Middle Eastern experience, we recommend our signature shared dining experience, the Soufra. This four-course menu currently features dishes from SBS TV series Shane Delia's Spice Journey, plus individually adapted items from the Maha menu. No two Soufra experiences are ever the same, making it the best way to experience the diversity of Maha cuisine, without leaving Melbourne’s CBD.
For Maha’s more refined dishes, we offer Latifa – a six-course menu that will take you on a tantalising journey of seasonal produce and flavours.
To truly dine like a king, you can’t go past our eight-course Sultan menu. Once only reserved for close friends and family, Shane now offers his Sultan’s menu for all of Melbourne to enjoy. Let our chefs tailors a menu that combines dishes from our Soufra and Latifa menus.
We offer an extensive Australian and international wine list, compiled after thorough research (and drinking!) by our sommeliers. From the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon and Galilee in Israel to the old world wines of France and Italy; our wine list is ever-evolving. Ask our sommeliers to recommend their latest discovery.
Traditionally, arak or raki is served with mezze, so we offer a broad range of the anise-flavoured Middle Eastern spirits for you to discover. Often called ‘lion’s milk’, the spirit turns cloudy when water is added – and it takes the heart of a lion to drink it.
We also have an inspired and unique cocktail list showcasing the most exotic flavours from the Middle East Melbourne has ever seen.
What better way to finish your Maha experience than with a dark sweet Turkish coffee or our house blend of Moroccan mint tea whilst smoking a shi sha in our relaxing courtyard – you’ll forget you’re still in Melbourne.
