From outside the restaurant doesn't look good inside small but lovely cool decor inside. The space was tight and the cutlery unassuming. The food was very well prepared and very tasty. The fish very fresh and services were smooth. We enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it for anyone looking for good fish.

If your a foodie and you love all types of sea food..... then a visit to Mumbai without a visit to Mahesh's in Juhu is sacrilege. Lots of choice and a must have is the butter garlic prawns or lobsters amazing 😉

Good, but not perfect. We ordered the tandoori Rawas, mangalorean pomfret curry and mangalorean prawns gassi. Rawas was amazing, the curry was quite similar to mangalorean curries , but being a mangalorean myself, it was no where close to authentic. Prawns gassi too was ok. The neer dosas were too dry and the brown rice was as if it was... More

The service is generally quick but the last time I went it was really slow due to peak hour crowd. Make sure to reserve a table in advance or the wait... More

Crab soup is ok...Fish Tikka (Basa) is good. Fish Curry (Surmai) with rice is very good combination. Although rice served is Kerala brown rice so if you... More

Being the first & Best Seafood Restaurant in Mumbai to serve authentic Mangalorean food, we occupy a special place for ourselves and our cuisine in the hearts of our customers.
