“Enjoy Shimla”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

I was nice sunny day of April, 2012 and nothing could have been better than walking on the mall and the ridge to enjoy the spectacular views of Shimla and the valley around. Shopping, people, food....the whole nine yards.

“Timepass!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Its ok, coming from Delhi, I think there are many better markets and places in Delhi itself. But its worth to have a look in, specially to eat around...
There are a couple of good restaurants there, Baljees, Sagar Ratna, Cafe Sol (Hotel Combermere)

“Interesting Raj-era buildings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

The best part of the Mall is that there is no traffic. Everyone is on foot. That's a really pleasant change for an Indian town. There are some interesting buildings left over from the Raj. Interesting, but not rivetting. There are pleasant views from some of the restaurants and cafes.

“Good place to Shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Good place to Buy pashmina (After kashmir of course). Dont get fooled by the other self proclaimed Himachal tourism shops, they might be fake. Mall road gives you a lot of options for shopping and dinning. Try the fruit market towards the end of the mall. The Luchha tokri chat is a must try.

“Must See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

The upper mall is more touristy, the Gaiety Theatre is a must. Also, take the lift down to the lower mall and amble through the local market stalls.... it's brilliant
