“Takes you back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This was where the who's who took their evening stroll. Its crowded. A visit to the Gaiety theatre is recommended. Stand at scandal point and look around and imagine you are back a hundred years.

“An experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Our first experience of an Indian shopping mall, and what an experience. The sights and sounds are amazing. Start at the top and work down the get the lift back to the top again, it saves walking up hill.

“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Combermere cafe was great, we shopped at Ramallah and sons for some woollens. Honey hut was a new experience.
The thought of taking a lift to the mall was so amazing.

“Almost a break from India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

India is often loud and chaotic. This ran at a slow pace was clean and offered some great Ideas for India, like vehicle free areas and no smoking in public. It could use advancement for handicapped as a Wheel Chair rents at 300 rupees an hour which is just wrong.
The pace is slower, the voices not so loud.. Its a good break, just don't need a wheel chair.

“India October 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

As I understand it whatever city the British settled in in India they established a "Mall Road." This is a great shopping street for the natives and visitors alike. Up close to the City Hall government building we found a great store for Pashminas and made the shopowners year?
