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!

It is no longer a tourist attraction. It is very dull and many shops have relocated and the prices have gone up. I recommend other malls. As this is really dying down. They directory is so inaccurate that sometimes i jsut give up looking for the shop and i rather head home.

It's a mall with glorious past. Now most of the shops are closed and parking empty comparing the new malls around. No need to visit. I was here on 26th April 2015 looking for shoes.

Spencer plaza is one of chennai' oldest and biggest malls. My first visit to Spencer's was way back in 2003, when it seemed to be a premium shopping place. During the current visit it seemed like established but bargain shopping spot in chennai. The prices are higher compared to local shopping areas like Burma market or T Nagar, but are... More
