“Food rating is '5'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Good ambience for a quiet & genteel dinner and some lunch too. A gentle blue background, Couple of large aquariums...one of them with our favorite coral fish. Quiet experience. Even the gentlemen waiting at the table speak in hushed tones. Person taking the order speaks polished. Our kinda soft dinner when we don't want noise. The seafood is good. The mangalorean fare is cooked to perfection. Couple of dishes are enough to satiate your palate and tummy. Mangalorean spices tickle your buds. After a long time I had Tiwadi though they named it Sol-kadi. The intent and behaviour of the gentlemen in waiting are at par. They may be a bit rustic or non-professional but it more than covers up in good behaviour. And they know when to leave you alone. However this chain of eatery has a history of nearly half a century, from a kitchen which includes traditional taste and you should expect a bit of rustic touch. This is the only reason for our rating of '4' otherwise I am good to rate it at '5'. The wash area is good and clean but we have seen better. Food for two is approx INR 1250

“Excellent Sea Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I have been visiting Mahesh Lunch home since last 6-7 years .

I have visited their fort & thane branch. The food at Fort is far better than Thane branch.

Must try - Ghassi , Chicken Sukha , Neer Dosa , Sol Kadi , Bangda fry , Surmai Tawa Fry, King prawn masala , baby crab curry.

Lunch for 2 - Rs.1500 +

Worth the money you pay.

“Sea Food Specialist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

It a nice place for lunch in the Juhu area if you want to relish the sea food . The place is a bit cramped but the food was just excellent.It has got a bar too and the menu contains all the available sea food. You can even select the live lobster before you order.
