  • When I visited Spencer Plaza a couple years ago, it was dark, gloomy, and tired. With all the new malls in town, it appeared Spencer’s Plaza was a “has been” place. All I can say is this visit was a b...  more »
  • This Mall is quite old and still very popular. Good location at the main road itself. Transportation is very easy and near to the La Woods hotel. However not many people patronize the mall. You can bu...  more »

  • Nostalgia. A good old place for shopping. Though there's not much of fancy ambience or decor to look out, it's still definitely a place for shopping. Bargaining tricks work well. The quality is good too. One can find small Kashmiri Emporiums, beautifully decorated which will hot you right in the feels. The elevator and the lift need major servicing though. Overall a good place.
  • Become more of an Office complex. Didn't see much crowd - but maybe wrong time. Fond memories of grabbing Egg/ Chicken Rolls daily for lunch when I worked nearby - but that was decades ago ! Was also the happening place those days without any competition
  • Once it was great. Now the maintenance is very poor. Recently visited and left the mall ASAP. Yucky smell. Very poor lighting. Only few shops were good. Don't come here for mall experience. All the branded showrooms are closed. Only if you want to buy things from local shops, visit here.
  • One of the Oldest mall around Chennai.. grand and gigantic but lack of shops..and doesn't feel like a modern day mall. Still it pulls you inside. Spencer can have your surprise shopping.
  • Chennai's iconic shopping mall. One of the most famous malls in Chennai.feel good for window shopping. Clean and neat ambiance. A little expensive. Car parking space available. Visited many times there. Bought mobile accessories and antique collections. A good place to go for a short break or outing in a weekend.
