Description: Established by Mr.S.C.Karkera in 1977; Mahesh Lunch Home has spearheaded Mangalorean food to newer heights. Mahesh Lunch Home has now become one of the most desired restaurants for satiating Mangalorean Sea Food hunger, for celebrities and families alike. Being the first & Best Seafood Restaurant in Mumbai to serve authentic Mangalorean food, we occupy a special place for ourselves and our cuisine in the hearts of our customers. Since our humble beginning in the late 70’s, whence serving only a few dishes, one of the most important being Surmai Curry & Butter Garlic Crab which many of our guests still remember devouring in our prime restaurant at Fort, Mumbai; we have expanded and proudly bring to you seven top-notch restaurants globally The whole idea of partying has changed over the years. From ear-piercing music, stuffed ambience to quiet dinners in the company of few and selected people, things have changed for the good. Bonding over good food with light music in the background makes way for better conversations and a lot of catching-up with people you adore the most. The best seafood restaurant in Juhu a synonym for Mahesh Lunch Home is one place that ensures to give you such peaceful times. Away from the maddening noise, you can just sit around a table and gossip your heart out with friends and family. Our restaurant near Juhu beach is the best since the ambience is loved by everyone who has visited us so far.

“Spicy seafood...great service”
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”
Reviewed February 9, 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”
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!”
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!
