“Great place for Souvenirs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

As a first time visitor to India, I loved spencer Plaza. It was very difficult to find your way around but there were so many great shops. There were great scarves and carved souvenirs - gifts for everyone in one place. You could spend hours there looking for bargains. Don't forget to negotiate prices! It was a shoppers dream. I hope I get to return to Chennai so I can go back to Spenser.

“Little Kashmir Cashmere Stores in Spencer Plaza, Chennai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I like Spencer Plaza and I had visited it many times. You can find here a lot of traditional Indian souvenirs, at reasonable prices. I became a friend of Waseem Mir who was running his shop - Little Kashmir Cashmere Stores at 2nd Floor 2nd Phase in Spencer Plaza. Now, Waseem have moved to Kuala Lumpur and opened few shops there. The shop is still open run by his Father Reyaz Mir.

“Outdated too crowded too many shops, not very attractive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

In comparison to Express Mall this seems to be old merchandise.Earlier it was a pleasure visiting this place but now the charm seems to have disappeared.
A couple of years ago I was a regular visitor, but now it seems so dull and quiet.
Business also is very dull.
