Visit to Mumbai city without visiting Chor Bazar is incomplete. You will find everything and anything here' !. There is a saying goes ' If you can not get it here, you will never get it anywhere '.

A great spot to find unusual and interesting items - ranging from auto parts to household and antiques, old Bollywood posters and records to wholesale kitchen items. We came as a group, the highlight was the fresh street food and snacks. Be prepared to bargain hard and to walk into the rabbit warren to find the interesting stuff. A fun... More

This place in South Mumbai is a market for antique and cheaper goods. This place's real name is Bara Imam road but since goods use to come here for sale from unknown sources.Hence it was called Chor Bazar means Thief's market. You will find automobile accessories, cloths,antiques etc for sale. You should have good bargaining skill. It's a very dense... More

I've been to a lot of rough bazaars in my day. I quite enjoy them. This one was many more downsides than good. The filth and smell over powers any quality experience.

Chor Bazaar on Mutton Street is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon looking for bric-a-brac and collectibles for the home. The place has some really good stores selling real and newly made but old looking (read: fake) antiques. They also have furniture stores specialising in antique looking and old style furniture which they can also make according to... More

It is very old market. It's name literally means Thieves market. it was originally called Shor Bazaar, meaning "noisy market", but "shor" became "chor" because of how the British mispronounced the word. Mutton Market, Chappal Market and Many Markets are in this area. The area is full of crowded streets and crumbling buildings, and can be a little overwhelming. Don't... More

The area is full of crowded streets and crumbling buildings, and can be a little overwhelming. Don't be daunted though, it's quite safe but do be careful of pickpockets.The area is still worth a visit on Friday when it comes alive with the Juma Market. This is the real thieves market. From sunrise on Friday morning, vendors cram the lanes... More

The food is good but watch your bill. Attempted to overcharge us by 2000 hkd. An honest mistake, I don't think so

Used to go as a kid three decades ago with my dad and buy China vases , chandelier spare orbs/crystals etc and it was a great memory. Took a German friend in November so he could experience a slice of ' OLD BOMBAY' but it was a waste of time and very disappointing...tons of junk for sale, the old shops... More

I am somebody who like browsing around markets and Chor does take some serious growing as its enormous. You can easily walk away thinking that it's about car parts or some such, as you have not really wandered very far. I suspect that we only really saw a small part, but we did end up with a nice brass "antique".... More
