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

About 50% of the shops (space) in this mall is empty . The place looks much older compare to express avenue. Despite that I quite enjoy buying cheap but quite reasonable quality clothes from this place. T-shirt cost as low as 100 rupees (~$2) while female indian-style causal tops (patiala) are from 150 rupees. If you have some spare time... More

Spencer Plaza was I think the first mall in the city. Till a few years ago ,it was the best mall. It used to be a weekend hangout place.The food court,something which we loved to go to, is now closed and only shops like Shri Mithai and Subway are still there. Because of the power cuts in Chennai, the mall... More

I think this building is about 150 years old. There were days when there's no City centre, Phoenix or EA, and Spencer was the only shopping mall in the city. Today there is no much of big restaurants or fashion stores except a plenty of small stores in the mall. But whenever we visited here, it always takes us to... More

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
