  • Don't look at it with the impression of a mall, it's just a huge market with lots of big and small shops (many of which are closed). You will find many shops selling exactly same stuff (read clothes). Good for shopping for leatherwear, footwear, gift items. Do not forget the food court at the top that offers a variety of North Indian and South Indian street food.
  • Good for mobile cases and covers. You can find a wide range and good quality mobile cases and tempered glasses. But other shops aren't so good. Lost the sheen it used to have earlier
  • There was a time when people used to go Spencer plaza now many big malls are built in the city so its popularity became little down. Very few visiting are happening now. Escalators are making terrible sounds. But still it is a best mall in my personal opinion. Once you enter the mall you can see the way of architecture they used to build. Many times you will get confused to find the exit. It was really fun. Many shops for costumes with affordable prices. Chitchat fun, special tea shop and many more. It is completely give you a different feel from other mall. I love Spencer's
  • Excellent shopping mall. A great venue. All national and international qualities are assembled here with a variety of items. It's a time pass for hundreds. Branded showrooms are nicely decorated. You can't feel bored here. The best place to market in Chennai. Well planned construction. Nice one.
  • Chennai's iconic and also India's first shopping mall.. constructed by British in late 1880's you can have a better experience of shopping, you can have look at lower cost brands to the extreme. And it's likely to be called as a Maze, the structure of Spencer plaza is designed like a maze. U can't able to find way out in a time. It's difficult for a regular visitor to find it out.
