This is it! They stock 1.7-2kg crabs! Not many restaurants do that! The prawns were large succulent in a coconut based curry. We had the Crab Ghee Roast. The Neer dosa was perfect.

It's an amazing experience to visit Juhu outlet for lunch...

A very big restaurant with bar, have 3 layers of sitting arrangements & also roof top space also..
Situated in the prime area of South Mumbai..

Entrance is decked up with fresh greenery...

As per Chef's suggestion...
Tried excellent continental starters..
Mahesh lunch Home is not only famous for Southern non-vegetarian delicacies...
But extremely popular for continental dishes & vegetarian delicacies..

Best way to kill the summer heat, is to have fresh summer cooler juices...
Cucumber fizzy is soothing cool & refreshing..
Mangotini is thick fresh juice of fresh mango..

Continental starters are excellent in taste & presentation...

Crab cooked in butter pepper garlic, a superhit dish.. Cooked in the best authentic way.. Crab is of very fresh quality...

Prawns chilly basil is also extremely tasty & rightly spiced..

Roasted basa is a huge piece of fresh basa fish, fried with southern spices..

The main course was traditional & super tasty...
Solkadi, a traditional Maharashtrian fresh juice, which goes very well with curries & rice...
Neer dosa,
Boiled Kerala rice,
Fish mallipuram,
Prawns manglorian curry ...
Each & every dishes are nicely cooked & taste was awesome..

The last but not the least was the traditional dessert..
Tender coconut payasaam...
Creamy milk with finely chopped pieces of tender coconut...
Amazing taste ...

One of my best lunch, I had here..

A must visit place for foodies...

We, the group of six adult went to Mumbai and decided to have dinner in Mahesh Lunch Home because of its reputation of sea food that we heard from our friends. We were not at all disappointed rather we were happy that we chose the right restaurant. Food was delicious, service was awesome and had a right decor. I recommend Mubai visitors to go to Mahesh Lunch Home for dinner and relax and enjoy food.

Recommended for Seafood. Must try dishes include: Jumbo Prawns, Crab Sukka, fish curry and appam. They do justice to bringing different regional tastes together in seafood.
