  • From the outside, the place looks promising. Inside, no classification is visible even with the best will. The muffelige operation also showed no interest, to advise customers. You can find good books on India here if necessary. After overnight search. I buy then again from book depository on the Internet.

  • Very nice bookstore with a nice section of books from Kerala and India. And the people working there are very well oriented and helpful; they even helped me order a couple of books I was looking for.,...  more »
  • Local Indian bookshops can be disorienting with dusty books almost everywhere and in an order hard to understand. Idiom is a little bit like this (books all over the place), but much more interesting ...  more »

  • Good selection of books for decent prices - especially in the '2nd hand' section. Unfortunately I must second a previous reviewer's remarks that the lady who works here is terribly rude. Expect to be ignored and for her to make up prices on the spot. There's another book shop 20 metres away along Princess Street - I've not been in - but it might be worth considering so as not to reward such poor customer service.
  • Good books at a good price, awful service, small selection. The woman at the counter balked when I tried to buy a book with the cash I had, saying she had no change, and then when I told her I had no other bills other than a 2,000 rupee bill (having just come from the ATM), she relented and gave me change for the book I was buying. Besides lying to me at first about not having change, she then stalked off after thrusting the change at me, leaving me to have to collect the book from where she had left it behind the counter. When we went the next day for another book, there was a different person at the counter and we had a good experience and got a nice bag for the books we bought, further emphasizing how rude the previous person had been.
  • The lady at the store was unbelievably rude for no reason. I wish there was an explanation to her behavior. Books were quite good, but did not feel like buying anything because of her attitude.
  • Thank you, Shyam, for going the extra mile and fulfilling my rather strange request of 20 particular postcards by going to the wholesaler when they were out of stock in-shop. Excellent service! 👍
  • Sweet little bookshop with a great selection of interesting books - indian and english. You may also find second-hand books here.
