“Something in It for Vegetarians too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

Not the best for vegetarians to venture, but if one does land there, the restaurant does have options for vegetarians too!!! The restaurant at Andheri has ample seating and has different areas and with the large seating area at the back not even conceivable as one enters the restaurant! This restaurant, among the newer ones in the chain has been very well done up. A marine acquarium keeps guests company during their stay! Mahesh's is best visited for their coastal cuisine and though they have a very long menu incorporating North Indian and Chinese cuisine too, the coastal sea food is what most customers go there for. Vegetarians have an option of requesting the restaurant for coastal dishes without meat and though not listed on the menu, the restaurant does cater to such requests. The dishes are best eaten with neer dosa or other types of dosas from Mangalore region. Service is of very high standard and the waiters take very good care of the customers.

“Excellent Fish Rawas. Surmai Gassi a couple of notches below.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Lunch on April 16. Cozy interior. Service and attentiveness initially spotty but picked up after I flagged down the maitre'd to seek suggestions.

From there on, a pleasant lunch experience except for the very end.

Rawas was melt in your mouth goodness. Nice big chunks. Surmai gassi also quite delectable came in second best. Chilled kingfisher beer and nimbu pani as cooling accompaniments on this hot and sweaty Mumbai day.

Well worth it overall. Downside, there was a long string of hair in my water I discovered on my way out. But, hey. you can't have everything.

“Great Sea Food on Offer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Very focussed on the Food with minimal other 'fuss'! Versatile Offerings all of uniformly good taste. Even the Veggies taken care of makes it a great family place to visit. Have taken visitors from Germany, Japan & Finland & everyone liked the place.

“great sea food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

this restaurant specialises in sea food and you can choose the fish or crab live kept on display outside the restaurant. i visited the Juhu branch. hard drinks are available. their signature dishes are of Mangalorean cuisine which is quite spicy and usually with coconut. quite close to the fish curry i have tasted in Goa. must try is their famous pomfret stuffed with small prawns inside and roasted. service is good and nice and comfortable interiors
