This place i always go to get peace of mind. Its wonderful atmosphere lets you read in peace and there is a wonderful cafe too upstairs for quick healthy bites. You must go there to get a peace of mind and read some good books of your choice.

Nice place for books at reasonable prices compared to International standards. They have a good selection. The points and loyalty cards don't work for me as I was visiting Mumbai. Generally good selection and fair prices.

This used to be my second home, during my free spirited days. They got a good combination of books, magazines, CDs collection, but what attarcts is the huge collection of books. Due to their size and background, they have got a very good collection of books. From latest best sellers to Diaspora writers, from Architecture to Management.

There is a cafe tucked inside the first floor, always crowded and noisy. But, in the afternoons it's a good place to sit with a book and sandwich. Aha, the joys of reading!

This is my second home in India. This is by far, my favorite place in Mumbai. I could spend hours there… wandering around the bookshelves. It’s organized clutter, with thousands (millions?) of books to consider adding to your collection.

They got a good combination of books, magazines, CDs collection, toys and boardgames but what attracts is the huge collection of books. From latest best sellers to children books, from Self-Help to Management. Being a chain of bookstores, Crossword is scattered all over Mumbai…..the one at Mohammedbhai Mansion (below Kemps Corner fly over) is best.

The best thing is it’s not necessary for you to buy a book if you have entered you can sit and read the book if you wish you buy or else visit again and complete the book.

The prices are …honestly, incomparable. If you so decide to buy, you can immediately started adding up how much money you would save if you came from a place like Singapore, or Malaysia or USA – another plus for Crossword. Regardless of the low prices, this is an engrossing store. I found books which were not available in my travels all over Asia. It’s definitely cheaper here than Barnes & Nobles and amazon.com.

There is just so many books. You’ll enter Corssword with a book in mind, but you’ll probably leave with one or two books that you had no intention of bringing home. Crossword Bookstore is worth stopping by and hanging out, who knows what you’ll find. This is the true truth as I still say it as it is…
