“Spicy seafood...great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

One of the best seafood experiences I had in mumbai, though the spices can be a bit overwhelming if you prefer western style seafood preparations...a la salt/pepper/butter/lemon. If you're looking for south indian authentic spiced up fare, then this is the place to go.

A bit on the pricey side for a restaurant that's not in a luxury hotel, but well worth it in my opinion. Service was excellent. The waiters were well dressed and trained.

“They've lost the plot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

For many years now Mahesh Lunch Home had excellent Manglorean costal seafood but recently they've lost the plot.
The menu now, over and above Manglorean food now has Goan, South Indian, North Indian, Chinese, Mexican and a lot of other food from all over. They've made an absolute mess of it....
Some of the food is still good but I wish they'd go back to the way they were.... back to good Manglorean food.

“Horrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I have been dining at mahesh lunch home for over 9 years when I am in mumbai, India , the crabs and fish used to be awesome , was there tonight 8 th feb 2013 , haven't had a worse experience such as this , the food was horribly prepared (crabs) and cold like they were pulled out from the freezers , wrong cutlery ( dinner spoons for sweet dishes ) said it all , no supervision , everyone including the captains seemed to be in a hurry to have their personal meal , and before we paid our bill , these captains were already hogging their meal.... Not a places would like to come again....

“For the seafood lover!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Being from Newfoundland, I love my seafood. Jump in Toronto makes the best cod, but the seafood here was the best I have ever had, even better than Africa, which was also very good.

Order the Rawas Balti if you like your food spicy!
