The best roti on the street. Miss Khanai is set up on the corner, on the sidewalk, offering the tastiest roti and just a few steps away, you can buy a Carib or Stag to complete the experience!

When you are a Canadian driving in Trinidad, you are thankful to drive on Western Main Rd, because its a roadway that has larger lanes than the other roads through Trinidad.. and when we drive on the opposite side of the street in Canada, which differs from Trinidad, you're thankful for a larger lane to drive on than those 1...

At nights during carnival you can find great food and drinks. It is best if you can do with a local.

This street is full of bars and food vendor and very busy at nights, especially around Carnival season. Can be fun but be mindful of your surroundings.

Enjoy a trip down the Wester Main Road through the bustling area of St James. This road also takes you to the Fort , Carenage, and the old US base at Chaguramus, where you can enjoy drinks and food at Crews Inn. The road is narrow so use caution when driving.

It was not as busy for a Fri night which was gr8 as there was not much traffic a definite plus! Worth the trip... More

Outside of the local food stalls and home made ice cream I don't care much for this area. The infestation of roaches are a big detractor. Everything is open late though so if you like grimy night life, it may be for you.

Consistently congested at all times of night and day. Maintenance is poor and constantly ongoing but not getting anything done. However, all drivers seem to get along and road rage is non existent. Like Rodney King said, "Can't everybody just get along?" On Western Main Road they seem to have managed that.
