Maha Bar and Grill

Strap yourself in for a Middle Eastern mouth bonanza at Maha Bar and Grill with amped up dishes coming straight from the sizzling hot Shane Delia’s kitchen. If you couldn’t share your Lego or teapot set when you’re younger, then don’t bother with this place, because what makes this dining experience so awesome is that the small and large dishes are designed to share, sampling the mastery of the chef’s cooking mind. Not the ideal place to dine for two, but don’t let that stop you.

Just about all the spices and herbs are utilised here including cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, saffron, fennel, mint, coriander, used in combinations from a foreign land such as dukkah & sabbah baharat to flavour beautifully cooked meats. Top this off by garnishing with nuts, thick sauces that have been pulsed or pureed, yoghurts and foams. Sweets at the end worth the stomach space investment, though difficult to do when all that comes out before is so tasty.

Quality service team, attentive yet casual and extremely knowledgeable, and 4 courses for $65, 5 for $75, you’ve struck gold. Queue the Bonanza theme song.

Where? 21 Bond St, Melbourne, VIC
