Malls in East Delhi and East of Delhi





Delhi has almost suddenly turned into a city with a major proliferation of malls. There are a number of malls in the city, spread all over, so that you can never be far from a mall. These malls try to offer a lot of advantages; good ambience, adequate parking (almost), entertainment options such as multiplexes and game zones, good food (although there are quite a few malls that are totally alcohol free). I am trying to list down some of these malls on a geographic basis, although it is never easy as there are new malls coming up all the time.
Let me start with malls in the NCR (Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Gurgaon):

Noida:

Centerstage Mall: This is located in the shopping Sector 18, and is impossible to miss even from a distance. Adequate parking, movie halls, eating joints, a hugely popular disc, it has all that. It does not have a very good gaming zone though.

Sab Mall: This is a smaller mall located at the edge of the Sector 18 market, opposite Max hospital. It is a much smaller place, but has enough parking, and some good clothing.

Spice Mall: One of the few buildings in the Sector 25A (in fact, the multi-coloured Adobe building is the only other building in this sector), it is famous for the 8 movie screens that it has and the much-visited Haldirams outlet. The food court is no big deal though.

Shoprix Mall: This is a mall that is only just starting to catch on. It is pretty close to an office/industrial area and the eating joints inside can get fairly busy at meal times. It has a good food court in terms of options, but not so much in terms of ambience. Located in Sector 41. For people nearby, it has an Airtel office, which can be convenient.


Ghaziabad / East Delhi:

This place has been more of a late mover, but it has caught on fairly fast and has a large number of malls.

Shipra mall: Located in Indirapuram, it is easily accessible from Noida and East Delhi and is located on National highway 24. It claims to be the biggest mall in NCR, and might well be. It is an architecturally pleasing place. Has lots of different shops and eating joints (although I was not too impressed with the eating joints), and a lot of parking.

Pacific Mall: Located just next to Anand Vihar ISBT, it causes a massive traffic headache around it. This is a fairly large mall, lots of options to spend time (I have spent a number of occassions in the food court). It also has one of the few iMax theatres in the country.

EDM Mall: Very crowded (no doubt because of the big Big Bazaar located in it), and fairly okay to spend time. Has movies and eating joints, along with cloth shopping (what else do you go to a mall for ?)

Galaxy: Located on the road to Mohan Nagar from Anand Vihar ISBT, this is a much smaller place. Movies + a few eating places, although the Sagar Ratna remains crowded.

Waves Kaushambi: Rightfully not a mall but a movie theatre place, but it does have places to eat, and a cloth and gift shop, so let's call this a mall. Also, located at a stone's throw from the other malls nearby. And the seats in the movie hall are the most comfortable from the places that I have been to.

Ansal Plaza: Would not be wrong to call this a poor cousin of the original Ansal Plaza in South Delhi, located next to Dabur (near Anand Vihar ISBT), it is essentially a complex of discount stores. So if you get your kicks from buying your stuff at a discount, this is the place to go to.

Cross River Mall: Located next to Karkardooma in East Delhi, it calls itself the longest mall, and I think that this may be true. Commenced operations a few months, so still has shops coming up, but it has achieved critical mass in terms of movies and clothes stores, although eating needs to be still improved.

AEZ Fun World: Located at Vaishali, this has a water park (although I don't think that it has opened up as yet), and the default movie theatres, this is one that I have not been to as yet, so not too many reviews.

Well, this post turned out to be somewhat long, so let's leave this post to concentrate on malls in East Delhi. I will cover other malls in other posts.
