This centrally located mall also offers many dining options like Copper Chimney and Punjab Bistro or the kid-friendly Krispy Kreme’s and Burger King. Not in the mood to eat? Grab a cup of coffee at Starbucks or cool down with an ice cream from Häagen-Dazs. After a tiring day, you can enjoy a good movie at its nine-screen multiplex. The mall is spread over a huge area so wear comfy shoes (or buy a pair here!), and start walking.

But it would be a happy accident if you did because apart from the shopping experience, the mall also offers an indulgent six-screen INOX multiplex and a bowling alley. The food court offers several cuisines to tired shoppers, and a gaming corner keeps kids (and often grown-ups) happily occupied.
