Over the last decade or so we’ve seen a large number of malls coming up in different parts of the city. We’re giving our top picks of the best malls in Delhi NCR that have it all—the best retail outlets, great food options, as well as some kickass entertainment.
The 12 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
From high-street brands to nice restaurants and cafes, there’s a quite a bit at DLF Promenade that gives you a well-rounded day of shopping, eating, and chilling at the mall.
Recommended For: Forever 21, Innisfree, Charles & Keith, Mocha Arthouse.
DLF Place, Saket
Adjacent to Select Citywalk, DLF Place offers all 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. Fill your shopping bags at Forever 21, stock up on exotic groceries from Foodhall, watch a movie at DT Cinemas and head over to The Big Chill or Chilli’s for a nice, heavy meal.
Recommended For: Vero Moda, Chilli’s
DLF Emporio, Vasant Kunj
This is the perfect destination 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.

Pacific Mall, Subhash Nagar
West Delhi, ahoy! Amidst a whole bunch of average options we’ve seen around this part of the city, Pacific Mall came as a pleasant surprise. For all those living in West & South-West Delhi (Dwarka, we’re looking at you), this mall has some really good brands to shop at, so a trip to South Delhi can be avoided.
Recommended For: Forever 21, MAC, Hinglish Café
Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj
In the same complex as DLF Emporio and DLF Promenade, Ambience Mall has some really nice restaurants you can check out—head to Jamie’s Italian to get a taste of recipes by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. Big Fat Sandwich, on the terrace area connecting Promenade and Ambience, has some really awesome gourmet sandwiches.

DLF Mall Of India, Noida
Mall of India is the largest mall in all of India! That, if nothing else, definitely warrants a visit.

The second floor is dedicated entirely to Indian brands like Biba, Meena Bazaar, Kalpana, and Anokhi. Check out their entire list of shops here.
