“Worth a visit”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Worth visiting and checking out the sights here but the shops and restaurants are ok. A few hours can be passed here by visiting the church, theatre and scandal point and checking out the views of the area.

“Quite a happening place to hang out!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Like any other hill station shimla's mall road is quite hip and happening. There are lot of shopping options there. You will find quite a lot of food joints as well. Mall road is full of college crowd probably because there are lot of colleges in and around shimla.. There are sitting areas and benches in between. It is pretty clean as well (spitting/smoking/littering all attract fine and are enforced by authorities). You can visit Indian coffee house, one of the oldest coffee shop. For continental food you can probably go to Cafe Soi (near the lift). There are narrow lanes few steps down from the mall road which are cluttered with small shops where you can buy woolen clothes, suits, etc. it looks more like a local market.

Happy Holidays!!

“At last a place in India where they take civic pride”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Shopping was both friendly & competetive ( according to my wife !) , streets were clean, no traffic ( apart from ambulances !) , really was a relaxed but busy place to be

“Shopping destination”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

A good place for shopping freaks. I shopped for reasonably priced gloves and caps. There are really good shops for buying shawls and stoles which also are reasonably priced. You can also get a good variety of suit pieces , the designer ones. Go for it.
