Colaba Causeway has been an important shopping and eating destination for over seventy five years. Its the place to go to get excellent handicrafts and for street shopping. There are some good eating places too such as Delhi Durbar (biriyani) and Leopolds Cafe.

Like the review title says... there is some great stuff here especially for people looking to buy eclectic knick-knacks! But you have to be ready to bargain a LOT to pay appropriate prices... if someone offers you something for INR 500... start bargaining at INR 200!!!

Colaba causeway is a long stretch of road full of showrooms and outlets. But the real attraction is the restaurants and the numerous flea shops that crowd the pavements. On tip: Bargain heavily. Start from something liek 40% of the quoted price, stay patient and keep walking ahead and bargaining. And then cool your heels off and fill your stomach... More

Its a good place to get your hands on some good deals. But you have to be careful as first timers can also be conned for some fake goods. The famous taj mahal hotel and the gateway of India are at walking distances. Great for some street shopping and a plethora of restaurants available.

The Main Street and side streets of Colaba Causeway have cinemas, eateries, juice stalls, restaurants, pubs, old buildings, bookshops, pawnshops, shops selling junk jewelry, clothes, accessories, artwork, trinkets, artifacts and all odds and ends! The place is swarming with both Mumbaiites and Tourists. It has a dynamic, chaotic, mad rush vibe that echoes the heartbeat of the city! Walking up... More

Every stall has something fascinating. It's perfectly safe to roam around and there are some pretty up-scale restaurants and hotels in the vicinity. From 'antiques' to junk jewellery to pirated books and movies, you'll probably have your fill of shopping here

Mumbai does not have a ton of places to get cheap souvenirs but this is definitely the spot if you're looking for Hindu trinkets, scarves and t shirts. The shops are open pretty late (I believe until 9 or 10). It's very centrally located by the Taj, Gateway of India and some great restaurants. Make sure you bargain hard. You... More
