Good was excellent as always. The fresh Bombay Ducks were crisply fried. The accompanying coconut fish curry was perfect pairing.

We have been a fan of Mahesh for years. The food is delicious and the service excellent. We are “foodies” from the NW of US, so appreciate good quality seafood. The seafood was fresh and not overcooked. The sauces were seasoned per our request (...not too spicy, please!). The service was attentive and helpful. Some reviewers felt it was too attentive, but we thought it could be compared to a Michelin or similarly rated establishment. We enjoyed our dining experiences (2 nights out of 3) and will definitely revisit Mahesh if we return to Mumbai.More

An fantastic place to have sea food which also caters for vegan eaters. The place is little compact and please do not bother for the ambiance. Go to the place enough appetite as dishes are mouth watering. Please be well in time for lunch /...dinner as the place gets really crowded during the peak meals time. A must visit if you happen to be in Mumbai.More

This restaurant was recommended for seafood, my husband had the seafood and it was very good. I had the chicken biryani hyderabadi, I did not enjoy this. It looked like wet grass cuttings, very green and unappetising looking. It was coriander with rice and chicken....The staff were very polite and helpful.More

Came here for our last meal in Mumbai. The staff were very attentive and the menu is extensive with Indian and Chinese dishes. The food was lovely and reasonably priced. Excellent choice in Fort.

The original branch and still the best. the food is not very Instagram friendly and is certainly not designed to look fancy, but my god it's good. Super fresh fish (Pomfret is the best), crabs, prawns and squid are tandoori-ed, fried and curried in a...huge range of sauces and spices. Staff are friendly and helpful, and recommend dishes to suit your tastes and appetite. The tandoori pomfret is one of the best Indian fish dishes you will ever eat. Finish the meal with some of their delectable home-made kulfi. Outstanding !More

We went here twice and although my wife doesn’t like spicy food theY were able to cater for us both admirably. The first night I had the butter garlic squid which really good and fairly spicy too and my wife had vegetable coconut milk curry...which tasted fantastic. The second night we had another vegetable curry that was equally mild but very flavoursome. We also had the mutton curry and that was great too. Highly recommend this restaurant.More
