“Chaotic shopping street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Curious corner of the city, without a doubt one of the few places in Mumbai where you can expect some tourists, it is rare here!
Here you can stroll along the Causeway and among the historic buildings colonial intrigued by the many stalls where you can find all kinds of items or souvenirs.
Traffic and chaos are typical ingredients of this dynamic city.
Place very impressive but absolutely not to be missed.

“Amazing street Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Colaba Causeway: OMG, Its hard to visit Mumbai and not spend the time trolling on the streets of Colaba Causeway for shopping from Fake antiques to Silver Jewellery. You will find here everything. Bargain is the hardcore mantra if you want to shop here. It reminds me of Bangkok Local Markets. Two famous cafes on this busy shopping arena : Leopold and Cafe Mondegar

“The Bustling Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Colaba Causeway is a place that can never let you down ! Full of energy, full of people & full of History. With loads of local icons just a walk away, it's a street full of charm. Be it shopping, eating, drinking, wandering or exploring, this is the place to be. A happening stretch of about 1.5- 2 kms, you can window shop from the fancy brands & pick up the latest trends from the street-side shops, eat in some of the iconic restaurants such as Cafe` leopold, Mondegar, Delhi Darbar, or the fancier Cafe coffee Days to 66th street yoghurt, Watch a movie at regal or wander around in on of the bylanes to explore much more hidden side of Bombay ! This place is too short to write about Colaba causeway & it's surroundings! Explore it & experience it yourself.

“A flea market on the GO”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

An amazing flea market for all your fashion needs. Ladies usually thong this market and when you see the shops lined here, guys won't be surprised.
Guys still have a respite, especially if you are a football fan with an array of football collectibles available there from keychains, badges, posters, mobile covers and bags (and even replica jerseys)
Watch out for some really rare replica jerseys of football clubs and teams. And not to mention the great bargain you get on them.
A word of advice: Never settle for the price said by the seller. Baragin for a price almost 30% lover then what is quotes. When it comes to the prices, Lesser the better nevertheless.
