The food at Mahesh is excellent and the service a little beyond. My favourites are pomfret kolai & prawns karavali. On the down side its become too expensive now!

I have been a fan of Mahesh Lunch home for years now, & eat there every time I am in Mumbai. I had not been for a few years & went back for lunch in February, & was delighted that Mr Sundar Poojary remembered me ! The food as always, was amazing. The prawns koliwada are one of my favourites.When I was leaving, I was presented with a bag of the sugar-coated seeds( breath fresheners) that they remembered I like . The place has undergone many changes over the years & now is decorated in a cutting edge modern style. The staff are marvellous. I can't wait to go back ~

I visited Mahesh Lunch Home, fort ironically for an official 'dinner' last week. The restaurant has a ground and first floor and is known for its sea food. Must try the Mahesh Special King Prawns and the Tandoori Prawns. The place is not easy to find however the travel to South Mumbai is worth it. The staff are quite hospitable and the service is good. The fried fish was a little too oily this time however on other occasions this is not the case. Crabs, Prawns and the Pomfret fish is recommended. The food is tasty but expensive, yet the atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed.

The food here is truly exceptional, we had King Prawns and they were fresh, beautifully balanced with the seasoning and everything was prepared/presented silver service. All for a very reasonable price, would return again. Don't miss this place!

authentic indian sea food...lobsters and prawns were outstanding...lobster pricing seemed a bit arbitrary though
