seafood!

This place is known for its awesome fresh seafood.. The crabs are very good but with cost you a bomb.. The tiger prawns also are prepared really well..I love fish so everytime i try something new.. I love the chicken gassi and the bombay duck fry..Lobsters are also prepared really well but again very very expensive. A nice place in juhu which is always crowded ..A must try for seafood lovers !!

seafood lovers paradise

My mother in law likes to indulge in seafood now and then,rest of the time she is a veggie by my side.so she decided to check this out one nice afternoon. Loved the seafood platter and couldn't stop singing praises of the tandoori prawns. I get freaked out looking at seafood somehow,but I could see happiness on everyone else's face around me so I have to admit it must be good and is pretty famous too.

Visit if you are not a seafood critic

Paying heed to the much hyped chain of 'Mahesh Lunch Home', we finally decided to give it a try. Coming from a family who regularly enjoys Konkani variety of seafood at home, MLH really had to please my tastebuds to even offer an average review.

Come to order and we straight place an order for sole kadhi for all of us and two sea food platter. Given that the platter offered a wide variety of sea food, we thought it would be the best option available. Along with the platter fanfare, we also ordered butter garlic pepper versions of Lobster and prawns, pomfret tawa fry and Squid Ring Garlic. The Lobster was well cooked, prawns were delicious, pomfret was a delight and squids were a treat. The sight of the platter was overwhelming (comprising of prawns koliwada, prawns tandoor, 'bangda' fry, pan fried basa, ravas fry, ravas tandoor and tandoori crab). The prawns and crab were what pleased us. The crab lovers on the table were very happy with the tandoori version of crab. Rest of the fish seemed rather too bland with little or no masala and some of the fish did not even seem that fresh.

The already ordered food was enough to fill us up. However, we could not leave without trying the appam and neer dosa. Combine a chicken ghee roast and prawns gassi with neer dosa and appam and it is a much better meal than the platter. Neer dosa were very thin while appams were crisp....a 5 star for these two food items.

The service was good and no complaints on that front. We were seated on the upper level which provided us a good atmosphere to have a chatty discussion in our group of eight. However, the seating downstairs is much more comfortable and would be pleasing for a smaller group. The ambience of this place is relaxing downstairs and is good for a gastronomic experience upstairs.

Overall, I like MLH for the experience but food wise it might be the only visit i make here. Like i say, it is always difficult for restaurants to please Konkani and Mangalorean guys.

Best Sea Food

Best sea food so far i have eaten in Mumbai . Felt over crowded for a weekday it would be better to go a bit early. Service a bit slow but then its all about food so everything over rules the good food that Mahesh Lunch home serves They have the best pomfret Masala. Also recommended are neer dosa with chicken curry followed by sol Kadhi to cool it down . I would definitely visit again and recommend this place .

Excellent Sea food

This place, as it is famous for, serves the best seafood. The best part is, whether you are at its Juhu branch or at the Fort one or at Sakinaka, be it anywhere, the quality and the taste is consistent. I have tried all the above three places mentioned by me and have never ever felt the difference in the taste, me being a hardcore fan of seafood. Try either of its fried versions or the tawa ones or the gussy ones, the stuff is the best.

nothing fishy here !

This restaurant appears quite uninspiring from the outside, but this is unfortunate because it belies the excellent food, service and ambiance within. I have now been back to mahesh on three occasions and each time I have been pleasantly surprised by how much I have enjoyed the experience. Admittedly, on each occasion I have had the benefit of a discount voucher, but the prices are nevertheless reasonable without one. I strongly recommend the succulent tandoori king prawns and the lamb karahi as two of the nicest dishes I have tasted in a long time. My sister and brother-in-law also rated it very highly when they visited. A special mention should be made of the excellent music which helps to create a very nice and relaxed atmosphere.

Not the same anymore

Been here a couple of times, I have fond memories of going to the one in Fort with my parents, however this one is too commercialized. The food is very good no doubt but I feel that the routes on which the whole concept was built, has been diluted over time. Its become more of a run of the mill Indian Restaurant rather than a destination for sea food. The quality & portion of the tandoori pomfret for example has shrunk over the years, & the neer dosa's just do not taste the same,the prices too have gone up a lot; it seems like they only want to cater to the foreign crowd coming in from the nearby JW Marriott hotel. The service is still very efficient, but it is offset sadly by the food. I prefer Gajalee any day, & have completely stopped going to Mahesh Lunch Home.

Andhra Food Festival at MLH

Mahesh Lunch Home should be everywhere like jhunka bhakar centres. These people know how to make seafood. The Juhuwalla place has a food festival on now. We go once a month and know the owner Shetty. We get good service. This Andhra style taste was too good yaar…I toh had two jhinga starters..pepper and vedu pudu something…with complimentary beer..solid boss. Wife likes crabs but does not drink beer. So she had pepperwalla crab and I had the beer. And shared one dum biryani mutton. Solid khana boss.

Definitely, best sea food in Mumbai

When you are next to a beach, with a cool breeze, you'd definitely crave some delicious food.

Mahesh Lunch home, is thus located in the most perfect place ever. I tried the place out of curiosity, not that I hadn't heard about it previously. I went there on a weekday and yet it was crowded. I waited for about 10 minutes, got a table and was attended quickly. The place might seem expensive to some, but no complaints about that because the food looked fresh! I ordered for prawns gassi, butter garlic fish, pomfret. The staff is extremely hospitable. Overall, excellent place. Food - 5/5 Ambiance - 4.5/5 Service - 5/5 Do check it out !!

Total Disappointment

I went to this place with my cousin who came from the U.S. as both of us love seafood and had heard of this place from many people. When we walked into the place, although the ambiance had no connection with a lunch home or a sea food place, it had a good feel to it.
While the service was really good, the food turned out to be really average. I've eaten better food at gajalee. It was a total waste of time and money considering the kind of reputation this place has. I expected better. The management should work on this and improve the food quality.
