    Visited with family in March 2022. I think we get everything in this market for family and friends. There is bigbazar for household items purchases, so many outlets and shops for purchasing dresses for family members and food stalls also. Worth spending time with family.

    If you are a bookworm, then this place must be on your list. One of the oldest, iconic, and historical landmark in Chennai is a haven of books. Almost 175 years old, Higginbothams houses different varieties of books and genres along with several stationary products and toys. They also have a decent collection of artworks and souvenirs too. There are academic books as well on the first floor for students. One must visit this store not just for the books but for the history, stained glasses, and an old grandfather clock.

    Ekagrata is a place where the used scrap fabrics n ancillary materials are repaired, reused, repurposed, refurbished, upgraded and remanufactured in true sense...in an extremely creative way to add value to the compositional products. It's amazing to see how Ekagrata works organically and sustainably towards reducing carbon footprints ❤️! Way to go Ekagrata!

    I wanted to gift jewellery to my mom and sister. The people at Pure Pearls guided me in selecting the perfect gifts for them. I loved their service and their collection as well. They have pearl jewellery for all age groups! The quality is also great and they provide a certificate for their sets.

    With a few hours left before flying out, I was looking for a shop where I could purchase some unique Indian gift items. Cane and Bamboo fit the bill perfectly. They have a large array of quality items at many different price levels. I found everything I needed in a one place. The owners and staff are friendly and accommodating. I was able to spend time looking around without any pressure to buy and the prices are quite reasonable. Highly recommended. I’m sure I’ll stop back on my next trip.

    This is a big whole sale market area in Chennai. The shopping area is a place near Pookadai bus stop opposite to Broadway bus station on NSC Bose road. This shopping area has many narrow long streets branches off from the main NSC Bose road. In each street few unique types of products are sold. One can buy all types of cloths, electrical, electronics, bags, plastic, home and kitchen needs, stationary items, imported items, Chinese, etc, etc,. All the products are sold at cheap whole sale price. Except for the Chinese goods, the other items should be fine in quality. For too cheap prices, poor quality items also you can get. But beware, the streets will be very crowded. The address and location given in Tripadvisor is misleading as Parrys means the shopping area everyone posted in the reviews here including that of mine.

    My sister learnt about the place online and wanted to visit. I expected a clothing store. But it had a gift shop and a restaurant added to it. The ladies spent some time browsing through the offerings and we also had our lunch. While they were at it, I spent my time enjoying the ambience of it all. It is located in an old house beautifully repurposed for shopping. The decoration and display of products was tastefully done. They had handmade articles and jewellery along with clothes for men and women. It is a different experience for me. I am a novice to designer clothing, so I felt the men’s clothing expensive. I couldn’t find price tags on some of them.

    At lunch, the menu is western. We had tasty soups, salads and sandwiches.

    My kid learnt french here as a part of Summer Class. Faculty is very welcoming and make the class very interesting. Kids would not think this is a normal class and would love to come here to learn.

    My kid loves this place and eager to go back to this place next summer.

    If you have a car, there is ample parking space but get in there early if you need a good spot.

    There is a canteen on the first floor which serves coffee/tea/juice/beverages/cakes, French fries and few other items at a very reasonable price.

    Highly recommend this place if your kid wants to learn French to cope up with studies.
