The Biggest Mall in Gurgaon
1. Ambience Mall, Gurgaon
We all know someone who’s been to Ambience, one of the biggest shopping malls in Gurgaon, and they’ve sung praises of this gigantic, vibrant shopping place. And Ambience Mall really is all that they say it is – a happy place filled with the best of brands like Zara, Ritu Kumar, Fab India, Marks & Spencer, MAC, Masaba, Sephora, Steve Madden and many more for you to shop from. Plus, it has a huge food court with several great restaurants like Jamie’s Pizzeria, Mamagoto and Punjab Grill to dine at.
Fun City and Smaaash offer hours of fun for the kids, and PVR multiplex brings to you the best of movies. Regular events at the mall also give the mall-goers something new and fun to get busy with.

Om Book Store right in front of Barista is stocked with the latest fiction and non-fiction titles plus a whole section for the kiddies and you could lose yourself here! Several casual dining options like Dunkin’ Donuts and Haldiram’s beckon you with goodies, and there’s a Keventer’s to fuel you up on the go.

Fabulous eateries like Moti Mahal, Coco Palm’s, Ruby Tuesday and Sbarro among others give you ample dining options and if you just want a coffee, you could get a fabulous one at Barista on the ground floor.

Big Bazaar, which occupies 3 floors, is a one-stop shop for families looking to stock up their kitchens and homes with monthly supplies and snacks (so it’s not unusual to see carts full of namkeen and juice packets).
The carnival-like vibe at the mall is further enhanced by carts selling ice creams, masala corn and bakery goods, and the recently added PVR cinema at the top floor ensures you don’t have to go too far for some light entertainment.
