Clearly one of the best spreads in town considering the price points. While its more of an Indian - South Indian fare, there is enough representation of other cuisine as well, though not in abundance. The number of live counters are huge, so feel free to grab tasty dosas to pastas to nans to bhatooras live on the spot. The dessert counters are lavish as well. Mainstreet is ideal for large families with diverse preferences, where the kid wants a bowl of pasta and the senior citizen wants curd rice and pickle and the father wants tasty biryani while the mother wants a clear soup. You get them all at main street. They have midnight buffets during weekends with limited menu but for a steal.

One of my all time favorite coffee shops in town with several good memories.

Yes!! thumbs up - Mainstreet is my favourite buffet spot, anytime I think of a romantic lunch or dinner this would be the place. Their Dessert spread is their speciality. Their main course is exceptionally well laid out with a mixture of Veg and Non-Veg menus. Their service is top notch and ambience is v good and on the whole a Great Experience!!
