Was on my radar for seafood in Pune. Had a prawn curry in mustard, superb . Had Bombil fry ...Very crisp. The Sol kadi was so yummy. Had with Rice and Dal. Not very pricey and a lunch for 3 at Rs 2100 seemed pretty reasonable. Maybe the quantity/serving size needs to be improved.

I have been here twice now, but not so impressed with the food, considering the price. Price as per size is the slogan for sea food and the prices mostly are in thousands. I don't understand what is the base of costing like this. We have lot of sea food restaurants in Pune with the similar quality and quantity at... More

Went for lunch, tandoor fish - first bite and it was obvious that the fish was not fresh and so horrible that had to rinse my mouth. Tandoori masala likely masked the state. Any restaurant that would serve their customer stuff like this, STAY AWAY.

We went with family on Valentine's day and though it does not look appealing from outside, the ambiance is amazing. Fortunately we made the booking earlier and reached on time hence we got nice place to sit however within an hour this place was full !! The crab soup is awesome!! Crab with butter garlic is also another great dish... More

Mahesh Lunch Home is one of the best place to hangout with friends and family. Great food, good quality liquor and great staff. Ambiance is also very good and a proper waiting area. Located at a central location called Camp. Must try prawn preparations and Fish tikka. over all a great place to visit and enjoy food.

Have been to this place a few times since it opened in Pune. They started out great serving the freshest and tastiest fish in town. However the quality has deteriorated over the years. Their bombil fry was to die for but these days there is hardly any fish inside only a thick layer of batter. Prices again are too steep... More
