  1. South City is undoubtedly the most planned and easy to navigate mall in Kolkata, considering even Acrolpolis and Quest. The parking space is huge spread over all floors (two parking floor per mall floor) and has easy in and out. Another unique theme is it caters to the budget shopper courtesy Pantaloons, Spencer’s Hyper mart, and small stand alone shops, as well as the brand shopper with names such as Blackberry, Arrow, Luis Phillippe, Vero Moda, Adidas, Nike, Reebok, Puma, to name a few. The Shoppers Stop outlet here is their largest in Kolkata. Tips: The Spencer’s Hyper Mart at the lower basement has a nice food court offering lip-smacking food at cheap price. The Dosas by Siv Sagar there is better than what you will get in the 3rd floor mall food court. Try Nolen Gur er ice cream (its actually chhana than crteam!) at Pablo’s for a unique taste that you would not get anywhere else.
    Update: The mall will be partially closed from Feb 1 for 4 months for renovation. The base brands like Shopperstop, Pantaloons, Spencer’s and Inox will remain open.

  2. Acropolis Mall is where the foodie should head to, and get spoiled for a choice, from the signature Chilli’s and Asia in a Kitchen (Mainland China initiative) to the food court stalls featuring Gupshup (6 Ballygaunge Place).
    The Cinepolis multiplex have the best screens in Kolkata and the provides more leg space than Inox or PVR in other malls.
    However, the number of stores are limited.

  3. Dakshinapan shopping compex is a unique market because what you get in the emporiums there you would not find anywhere else in Kolkata. If you want genuine Sandalwood as well as Sandal powder, visit Le Pakshi which is a Andrhra Pradesh government emporium. Mrignayani offers a faboulous collection of sarees as well as genuine brass handicrafts. If you are planning to buy authentic brass idols, this is the best store. There are a number of Khadi emporiums selling genuine Khadi as well as silk. Gurjari at the entrance sells hand dyed kalamkari cotton sarees as well as wide range of handicrafts.
    There is also a Biswa Bangla emporium run by the WB state government, but the prices are atrociously high. There are also a number of small shops selling non-branded ready made garments, but they are best avoided because of quality and price. If you are looking for those kind of products, visit Gariahat market.
    Don’t forget to take a sip at Dolly’s tea stall for a wide range of refreshing chilled tea drinks accompanied by soft cheese-grilled sandwiches!
    Tips: The market complex do not have any clean washroom or restaurant, so plan accordingly. Also, the market mostly remains closed on Mondays and Sundays. Avoid visiting during lunch hours as the employees of the government emporiums are too lethargic to entertain you then.
