Probably the best restaurant for sea food

Dont be misguided by the name. Its more of a family restaurant rather than a 'Lunch Home' The fish is great and so is the other stuff. Probably the best restaurant for sea food in Pune. A comfortable meal for two would cost about atleast Rs. 2,500

Its the one food joint you must visit while your are in Pune. Very nice staff. Arranged wheelchair for my handicapped mom. Chicken sukka and fish dishes are USP of this restraint.

It worth to visit this place once. Basically I liked their starters like 'Surmai Tikka' or 'Prawns Koliwda' Their cocktails is 3 out of 5 and I won't go for it next time. I ordered 'Rusty Mill" and it was average. Next time I will try wine. Also they have variety of Veg food. We tried 'Halwa Masala Fry' as... More

We went for my daughter's birthday celebration. The lobster was spicy (!). Tasted weird. The patra ni macchi was bad. We could not finish it. Only the prawns were edible. Will not go here again soon.

Please don't be misguided by the seeming innocuous name. This place is too overpriced compared to other restaurants serving similar cuisine. Agreed that the food is fresh and the service is good, but if you order low priced items from the menu rather than the exotic platter of freshly caught sea-food that they offer as you sit down, then be...

Sorry for being cryptic ... but this is an Overhyped, Overpriced place. I've eaten at the original Mumbai outlet for years. But, for Pune ...everything is so fancifully overpriced, that it was a serious put-off for my cousin, who was treating 8 of us. Simply put ... there are far better places in Pune serving similar food at half their... More

A perfect place to spoil yourself with the amazing seafood. Prawns, Bombay Duck are their specialty, The menu is long and the prices are steep but all good things comes with a price tag.

If you are a fan of Manglorean sea food, Mahesh Lunch is the finest place to dine. Although the name may deceive you, "Mahesh Lunch Home", with its several branches at Mumbai, Bangalore and Dubai is an absolute delight for any seafood lover. Their wide preparations of Pomfret , crab, prawns, lobsters etc are bonanza for flavours which will water... More
