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.

One of the best places to visit for shopping. Very few people miss this great place. There are lot of malls inside. I still remember catching escalator to climb floors very easily. Most of the time i visited chennai i have been here since 2007. Excellent book shops available here. Best place to be in for dining in restaurants. Indeed... More

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.

Plenty of choice in the Mall - even has a Marks & Spencer although the staff do follow you around a lot.

This building was built during British rule, the architecture is good. One of the famous landmarks in Chennai. Used to be the window shopping place for youngsters earlier, replaced by the new malls in city. It has all the branded shops. Located in the hot spot of the city

Spencers about a decade back was the "in" mall in Chennai but now it has become run down and most of the shops are gone. Even the Air conditioning does not work some time. There are much newer places around.

This is a quiet place when compared to other malls and you will enjoy shopping here. The shops in this plaza are smaller ones... More
