Mahesh Lunch Home is a household name when it comes to seafood. It is often the first choice for many and comes highly recommended when someone is in the mood to devour a crab. While there is a lot of chicken and vegetarian dishes to pick from the strength here is their exquisite seafood. This outlet in Juhu is one of the few in the area that serves such a wide range of seafood and is a great choice for a meal out with the family. The focus is on Mangalorean style preparations but you will see a lot of tandoori dishes as well. The 'Butter Garlic Crab' is their signature and is a legendary dish that has been a crowd pleaser for years but do try their 'Prawn Koliwada', 'Bombil Fry', 'Prawn Ghee Roast' with 'Neer Dosa' and the 'Crab Sukkha'.
This restaurant had opened in 2002 and celebrates its anniversary every year with the Crab & Wine Festival which is for a limited period. This is their 18th year and to celebrate, they have introduced a special Crab menu (more than 20 new crab preparations). They have made a huge crab decor at the entrance for everyone to know that the festival is going on. I went there with my dad and brother on Sunday for Lunch. No wonder that the restaurant was completely packed. We were greeted by Mr. Manoj Nirgun who made sure that our lunch was nothing but other than an extraordinary experience. So, to begin with, we ordered 🍲Soup: 🦀Crab Salad Chili Soup – Very delicious and spicy Crab soup with fresh salad. I loved the taste. For those who like the taste of crab but are bored to remove the shell and eat, this crab soup is for you 😊 🦀Crab Pepper Soup – A thick and creamy soup made in milk which had bell pepper and some Indian herbs. Super tasty and good consistency. Starters: 🦀Salt & Pepper Crab – The Crab is deshelled, and the meat is removed which is tossed with bell peppers and crushed pepper. I loved the taste completely. A very easy to eat crab starter because it is already deshelled. 🦀Sri Lankan Tandoori Crab – Well, the description had that it was having strong paprika, which I didn’t see, but ordered because it was tandoori 😊. The marination taste was just perfect (on a spicy side) and the tandoor was done to perfection. Simply go for it (if you like spicy crab) 🍽Mains 🦀Tender Coconut Crab Masala - A steamed crab cooked in rich tender coconut gravy. The taste was heavenly. A little on a sweeter side. But trust me, it was delectable. 🦀Kekra Jhal - A typical Bengali style spicy gravy with crab cooked to perfection. Overall both the dishes had completely different tastes and were super yummy. We ordered Appam, Neer Dosa and steamed rice to go along with the crab gravy. You must be wondering where the Wine in this is. So, here is the best part (T&C apply). They serve: 🍷A glass of Sula Wine with regular crab 🍷A pint of Sula with Jumbo crab of value up to ₹ 3000 🍾A Bottle of Sula Wine with a Jumbo crab value above ₹ 3001 Imagine one of the best restaurants that specialize in Sea food has a crab & Wine festival for almost a month. Could a sea food lover miss it? Obviously not. So, make sure you visit them before 25th October 2019 and try the spectacular special crab menu.
Ordered the crab (special of the month I think) and finished it all by myself. It's also just beside JW Mariott which was convenient.
The restaurant is strategically located in Juhu, the ambience was okay. The food was also okay but overpriced. The interior needs to be improved as there was water falling from ac vent. Neer dosa and sea food is their specialty but pricing is steep.
I am a fan of Mahesh Lunch home. Especially south Indian based gravy n dishes.. We tried Bombay duck fry which melted in mouth. Ceab soup was thick n tasty. Prawns koliwada didnt strike me as much great although decent in taste.. N xjettinad basa was really good with neer dosa..
Excellent sea food, everything ordered was fresh, very reasonable pricing. Perfect for sea food lovers.
Gastronomy of Mumbai is varied and colourful one, highly influenced by the coastal belt on which the city is perched. The city is a melting pot of cultures and in courtesy to that it has gained a diverse range of cuisine palette. But the heart of the city still beats Maharashtrian. Regional food is one of the reasons why the city is so famous and your visit to Mumbai is incomplete without you sampling some of their classic regional fare. Give those fancy places a skip and dive into the true essence of the city by opting to lunch at those wonderful lunch homes tucked into various corners of Mumbai. One of the popular names when it comes to lunch homes is ‘Mahesh Lunch Home’, a chain of popular good-looking lunch homes dotted all over the map.
Those in vicinity of Juhu should book a table at Mahesh Lunch Home, which is located at Kings Apartment on Juhu Tara Road. Mahesh Lunch Home may seem like a typical Maharashtrian joint but you should watch out for their Mangalorean fare, which is simply lip-smacking. The speciality of the restaurant is of course, seafood. They bring live crustaceans to your table for you to pick your meal, a fun practice with kids as well as adults. Start with, kandhari kebab, barbeque garlic crab, chilli basil lobster, Thai chilli basa, stuffed baked crab, Balinese chilli squid, fish fry, Bombay duck fry and chicken raseela kebab. Move on to, Mangalorean gassi pomfret, Malabar crab curry, Balti fish, clams kushameer, seafood Thai curry, grilled fish with lemon butter sauce, Kerala mutton stew, Balti chicken and kaju masala.
The variety is exhaustive and each catch comes with a multitude of curry choices. The best way to enjoy the seafood is with the help of a flaky flatbread or a bowl of aromatic rice. Finish on a strong sweet note with some delectable desserts. Lick clean a bowl of tender coconut payasam or caramel custard. Interiors at Mahesh Lunch Home is formal and elegant. Beige wallpapered walls envelopes the room uplifted by deep rust coloured chairs and a string of toy crabs. There is plenty of space to sit even if you are part of a large dinner party. A fish tank meets your eye as you step towards the next level, a hit with the kids. The place is not too expensive, which is a blessing.
