Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mumbai's Chor Bazaar is the pride of the city in terms of shopping. Located in South Mumbai, Chor Bazaar literally translates to 'thieves market' and is home to many stolen goods. You will usually find shopaholics rummaging for goods at throwaway prices. From antiques to Victorian furniture and fashion to electronics, a wide array of goods available here is staggering. Most of the shop-owners are used to the whims and fancies of the shoppers; therefore, if you are good at bargaining, then this might be the place to be! Chor Bazaar is also one of the busiest places in this city. It was bedlam during our trip.

Once in Chor Bazaar you will find yourself surrounded by Muslim architecture buildings and surrounding. Located on Mutton Street, the area is full of dilapidated buildings, crowded streets and crumbling shops, retaining a bit of the old world charm. Most of the lanes are crammed with vendors selling all sorts of goods at very fluid prices.

For just a travel buff, a visit to this would be worth it, as one can see all sort of Antique and other old items, coupled with a lot of goods which would have been pinched off somewhere. The best part is one can just roam around the place and venture into shops without buying anything. One needs to careful wiith his belongings (Specially Wallets and Mobiles).

took an Uber there, was not far from Hilton. Lots of bargains for a variety of good, especially leather stuff.. Be sure to start the bargaining at half of what the price is on the sidewalk "shops".

Despite reading in guide books that this market was a great place for tourists looking to pick up souvenirs, I found that this was not the case. As my Uber driver told me, I discovered that the Chor Bazaar was largely for spare parts for cars and bikes etc. After a good deal of exploration, I concluded that there was nothing for me to see. I could be, however, wrong on this information - but I coney my personal experience

We visited here and came by taxi and the taxi driver told us to watch our pockets. This market has lots of stalls and shops and is famus for antiques. We saw lots of old furniture, metal statues of goddesses and guradians piled high as well as musical instruments, bells and all types of vases. How much is really antique we didn't know, but the prices wre very high so we bought nothing however the market was very very busy with stalls selling food and drinks. Dress modestly as it is in the Muslim quarter of Mumbai. Enjoyed the experience, but again rubbish about on corners of streets.

great bazaar to brouse and buy. but be aware and know what you are buying!
It could be a antique or made next door yesterday. Amount of stuff is overwhelming.
best time to go is before 5pm, after that time can get manic.
saw fair bit of "lalique", not brave enough to buy.
great way to spend few hours.
