This used to be a very well known place for shopping and hanging out, as seen in most movies in the 80s. Seems very run down, and people in the shops are almost begging that you come in and shop. Not many locals manning the shops though, seems like more northern businessmen have taken over. But still nice to walkaround... More

Nice place to shop and walk around in a mall. It was the first mall built in Chennai, other than Moore market. Superb place for youngsters, but be aware of pickpockets. Keep your wifi off. From there go to the Museums. It is walkable distance and you can relax there.

The place had so many shops, and I specially liked the gift shops they had with some cool Indian stuff. There were good places to eat and it was all about shopping inside the Spencer Plaza.

I agree that it lost its charm....the place has become dirty with poor maintenance....still there are plently to shop for....ample car parking area but can get crowded during weekends & public holidays...I think its time for them to do a big renovation.
