The hype is more than the place deserves. Seafood is good though many other places offer the same quality at a considerably lesser price. Menu is not as extensive as expected. Be prepared to stand in long queues. Service ordinary.

I visited there with family and I don't have sea food though my parents do and they did enjoy it while there were sufficient options for both vegetarians and meat lovers though their speciality is fish. Great food, good service though a pit on the...pricier side it is extremely good food and worth it.More

This my second visit . Disappointed again . I ordered Pomfret tandoori , Surmai pan fry and Nizami Kebab and Prawn Biryani . It does sound like a bizarre order as I had my young nephew with me . I strongly feel the Chef need...to retrain . It really bab bad food and people should refrain from going there . There is no mannerism or professionalism in staff. Disgusting visit really . Or I could be wrong due to my expectations. As far as food is concerned people should visit local Malvani Restaurants in Mumbai for fish. There are plenty .More

Mahesh lunch home one of my favorite since 1978 when one could have sumptuous lunch at Rs 20, now in 2021 it is fine dining and lunch will work out to 600 or more. Expensive but good food. Branches abroad also

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

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
