Interesting to read the reviews of how this mall used to be the happening place. Now, it is not charming in the least. It's decaying and a bit depressing. BUT, there's a coffee shop there near the inner courtyard. We'd go there every day and get coffee, and sometimes tea if they hadn't run out already. Then we'd go sit... More

Note: there is better looking Tasmac store here where u can walk in and see what is on offer.... More

Yes - the mall is a little old and might not be very attractive for everybody. But if you are looking for indian clothes and handicraft, you are perfectly right here! Here you get cheap prizes and numberous small shops, so you will find whatever you're looking for. It hasn't got the big western brands which westernes find at home... More

It reminds the old mall or Sadar bazaar kinds feeling. If one is familiar with the Palica Bazaar, then he feel the same here.

From the start you will notice that this place needs some good investment. Investment of time, money and creativity. Over a period, things were allowed to go unnoticed and I fore anyone knew things fell through. It's one of those things that starts well and goes bad because the management or owners take things and life for granted. There are... More

Very sad mall. Shops are very small. Lots of shops are closed not worth the trip. Some ally's are very dark, not recommended for single shopper.

I had been to this mall several time over the years. But my recent visit in June 2015 I still feel its one of the best places for shopping specially for foreigners. The variety of antiques and indigenous craft and handicraft of Indian origin make it a unique experience. It does have a good mix of brands and local product... More

It's over, time where everyone said Spencer plaza this and that! Stalled, almost empty, still some store to buzz off and then there is always real estate!
