Mahesh Lunch Home (Juhu)

Mahesh Lunch Home is a well-known restaurant known for its classic Mangalorean cuisine. First established in 1977 by Mr. S.C. Karkera in Fort, Mumbai. It now is present at various other location in Mumbai.

So yesterday we finally landed up visiting one of their centers in Mumbai at Juhu for dinner. My first experience at Mahesh Lunch home turned out to be absolutely amazing and here is why-
Ambiance: 5/5
Entrance
Table arrangement

They have a spacious sitting arrangement on two levels-ground and first floor. The decor is rustic, simple yet cozy. They have a sitting arrangement for couples, families and even large group.

Service: 5/5
I absolutely loved the service. All I had to do is tell them my preferences and they served me beverages that would exactly fit it. They had answers to all my queries may it be about the dish, the taste or plating. They took feedbacks constructively.
