Over the last decade or so we’ve seen a large number of malls coming up in different parts of the city. We’re listing our favourite malls in Delhi NCR that have it all—the best retail outlets, great food options, as well as some kickass entertainment.
Shopping Heaven: 13 Best Malls In Delhi NCR You Need To Check Out
Select Citywalk, Saket
We find ourselves coming back to Select Citywalk quite often. From high street brands and make-up brands, to eating joints and theka options, there’s really not much we’d change about this place. Plus, the outdoor area (with pretty fountains) makes for good respite from the indoors, if you want to take a break.
DLF Promenade, Vasant Kunj
DLF Avenue, Saket
Adjacent to Select Citywalk, DLF Place has changed its avatar to- DLF Avenue. It offers everything that its neighbour doesn’t, which is why we think they’re the perfect pair, working to give us shoppers everything we could possibly need. You will get everything from athleisure, ethnic fusion, footwear, home decor to salons, a books store and also a co-working space.

DLF Emporio, Vasant Kunj
This is the the best mall in Delhi for those looking to shop for high-end luxury brands that are hard to find elsewhere. Check out Jimmy Choo to get some iconic shoes for your wardrobe, bags from Gucci, loafers from TOD’s, and many other brands to get your fill of luxury.
