“A mall full of "local tourist" crowd of onlookers and flockers”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The above is a one statement summary to describe any shopping mall in Kerala. Air-conditioned malls have effectively become a local touristy hub. Especially “Yippee” (young professionals) visit here as a place to chill out and cool themselves down in hot temperature. At Oberon mall, there is a selection of stores ranging from boutique to retail chain stores but I think only multiplexes and food courts churn volumes and make revenue because this is the place "onlookers" open their wallet, if at all they are going to. If you are planning to visit here, expect a lot of crowd and most likely the Hollywood movie tickets are guaranteed as you do not need to reserve in advance but other local movies get sold-out quickly. Best time to visit is during mid-afternoon on weekdays..

“Convenient Shopping”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The Oberon Mall has 4 floors of shopping including a kids play area, a food court and a cinemax theatre.

The mall is dominated by Reliance stores, which has a dedicated bookstore, clothes shop and a supermarket though by international standards this is a tiny mall.

Shopping is made convenient because the mall has most of the brand names represented like Adidas, Nike, Arrow, FabIndia and so on and a host of other local shops.

On the weekends the mall tends to get crowded and is filled with out of towners who have come for the mall experience and to ride the elevators!!

“Great place”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The mall is too good that you dont want to get out. Very neat .All the food joints are just lovely I personally like the small cookie outlet where you find various flavours to enrich your taste buds.Our toddler enjoyed running around ,the escalator rides and of course the ride on the remote controlled cars.Nice place to hang out with your dear ones .Cinemax is just superb .If you are a shopaholic Oberon Mall is the shoppers stop.Good security and very friendly staff.Indeed a great place.

Reviewed August 21, 2012

When you think of a good mall to visit in Kochi,Oberon mall is at present the best.Not too big or oversized,this is a perfect place for all your shopping needs,hangout,cinema and good food.Reliance has its major stores here with Time Out,Reliance Fresh,Reliance Trendz and Reliance Footprints.One can find a good number of stores from Woodlnads,Basics,Aesics,FabIndia,Nike and a whole lot of other good multinational stores.The mall is well maintained and neat at all times.Toilets are good.Adequate security and polite staff.Cinemax is also doing a good job here.The food court is also good,but can get a few more outlets open.Ideal place to hang out for all ages.

“'Landmark mall of Cochin'”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Oberon mall is still the largest mall in operation in kerala with too many titles like first full format mall, first multiplex theatre, first indoor gaming facility in kerala etc.The mall is running under the Oberon group of companies from 2009 and now became one of the busiest shopping centres in cochin city. The mall is located on the NH 47 bypass at Edapally, cochin.

If you check, shops, the retail gaint Relaince retails have taken 6 important spaces in the mall for exhibiting their major retail types like, relaince time out, foot prints, trends, relaince super etc..Apart from relaince, you can see lots of mutlinational brands are running succesfully in this mall from the beginning. One floor is dedicated to kids gaming zone (Boomerang) & for multiplex theatre(4 screens), which is relativily a new experience in cinema viewing to cochin.

Another massive portion of 3rd floor (if a i am correct) is designed for eat outs, which would serve to min 200 heads at a time. Another attraction is the 'scary house', which is a ghost theme based entertainment centre.

Regarding parking, mall has both covered and uncovered parking areas. Now they charge for both area based on the time of parking. Out side parking cost Rs 10 per hour, where as underground parking costs a lot.
