  • This place is more than just a bookstore. If you're in town and are an avid reader, you must visit this store. In fact, this is the best bookstore in the city. I have heard that It still has that old charm that was there 20 years ago. There is an old gentleman, the manager i suppose, he knows everything you want to know about books. There is even a cafe upstairs, Cha Bar, and on a cold rainy day their chocolate muffins with Earl Grey tea is to die for. The staff are friendly, and after a few visits they actually remember you. I haven't found a nicer bookstore in the city, and that is saying something given I go on a scavenger hunt for good bookstores all over the city.
  • One of the best bookstores alive in India today. The collection is extremely rich. The ambiance is heady. You are likely to stumble onto one or the other rarest of the rare titles in this store even if you visit daily.
  • This place has a nostalgic feeling for me. They have a good collection of books. Because of online shopping people don't come here much, but the loyal customers cannot forget about Oxford. Only drawback that they do not give discounts.
  • A great selection of modern Indian fiction, English literature, travel, leisure, and Indian cuisine/cooking (this is what I paid most attention to). Of course there are tons of books about Mother Teresa, including brilliant picture books and histories of Calcutta. Overall a fantastic place to spend an afternoon (inside away from the craziness of the city, if you need an escape!)

Starmark may be the swanky new place with garish bright lights, but Oxford still has that old charm that was there 20 years ago.There is an old gentleman, the manager i suppose, he knows everything you want to know about books.

I've been going there since I was a kid, and I must say that I haven't found a nicer bookstore in the city, and that is saying something given I go on a scavenger hunt for good bookstores all over the city.
