A lunching lounge tale - Pratap Lunch Home

For the last 55 years, Pratap Lunch Home has been serving as an afternoon refuge against the heat for working professionals in the Fort area of South Mumbai. During evening, the place doubles up for families to have a peaceful meal. With a seating capacity of 75, the place has a comfortable ambiance and is known for its seafood menu. It houses a bar that doesn't offer fancy cocktails but is stocked with enough alcohol to ensure a happy clientèle.
“We are known for our seafood menu, which includes dishes of coastal cuisines like Konkan, Mangalorean and Malwani,” says Prashant Amin, owner of Pratap Lunch Home. Started by his father, the restaurant has been a popular eatery for years. The restaurant's special crab dishes are really popular among foodies, he adds. However, the business has been hit recently, he said, listing demonetisation and GST reform as days of challenges.
The recent plastic ban too has brought in changes for the management and while switching to packaging alternatives has not been smooth, it hasn't been tough either. “We have ordered for wooden cutlery that can be sent with home delivery packages,” said Amin, adding that though they had been using good quality plastic wares, they have switched to ones within permissible limits of quality, in accordance to the rules.
