“Much ado about nothing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

All travel guides on Mumbai lists Colaba flea market as a must visit. Well, I found it very disappointing. It is nothing to write home about - apart from the general fun of street shopping & food ( if one finds that appealing).
The quality of things on sale is appalling & who needs to bargain for such trash? For those from Delhi, Janpath, GK are better options.

“We loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We loved the Colaba Causeway. It has everything! Great sea views. Great shopping. Nice restaurants mixed in. Mix of British and Indian buildings. A cleaner part of Mumbai. The people there are friendly. We loved strolling around the whole causeway.

“Flea market of Mumbai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

If visiting Mumbai, Colaba Causeway cannot be missed. It is one of the best shopping streets in Mumbai where you get great bargains and amazing things you wouldn't find anywhere else. It is a chaotic and bustling street so you need to have the patience and eye for detail. The footpath of Colaba Causeway is lined with stalls selling colorful imitation jewelry and accessories, footwear, antiques like old telephones, show pieces, handicrafts, Indian mythological print cushion covers, bed-sheets, stoles, wrap around skirts. If you have a knack for haggling you can get something at half its quoted price! There are some famous restaurants, cafes and pubs as well where you can end your day by having a drink and some amazing food and relaxing your tired feet after extensive walking, shopping and bargaining. Must try cafe- is Cafe Leopold and Cafe Mondegar where you get amazing food and drinks. Colaba Causeway, a place close to every shoppers heart.

“The Footsteps Of Shantaram”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

for those who have read the book, this would bring back memories of many 100's of pages of the book.

such a nice walk at morning and evening with different restaurants, street side markets and different points of ambience wherever you walk.

a trip to mumbai is not complete without a complete walk of the Causeway

“Must Go. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

This is place where everyone MUST go for shopping if you're ever in Mumbai. All the shops on the street you can start bargaining by as much as reducing the price by half or even more. There are some amazing things. But you need to look properly. Just a overlook will not suffice here. And also you need to kind of be sure of your sizes incase you're buying clothes. But otherwise you'll get 99% things you want from here only.
