Had been here for a Team lunch with around 40 colleagues. The food was good. There were many good starters - Chicken Nuggets, Tandoori etc. The soups varieties were good too. The main course was somewhat limited. Veg main course was better than the non-veg. Desserts spread was great again. With good juice and chocolate cake etc. Decent buffet spread... More

We had team dinner at Main Street on 20 feb and very disappointed with good quality. The starters, main course was cold and not fresh. As usual the roti ordered during end of starters and served during deserts. Aircon was not working properly and no response from service crew. Very bad choice and will never go again.

Main Street is a smart name for the ground floor multi cuisine restaurant at Residency Towers. (Residency Towers is next to GRT Hotel, with its entrance from Boag Road. Not to be confused with Hotel Residency on GN Chetty Road, since both are within a few 100 metres of each other) Main Street tries to pull off the theme, with... More

The decor wants to set a European atmosphere with street plates from London, tables from Parisian cafe and Italian posts. But the buffet is Indian standard. The desserts are not tasty. The waiters are busy. Not recommanded.
