Greater Kailash in South Delhi is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city, and also boasts two of its most popular markets. Home to countless international and local retailers, M Block Market is known for its upmarket fashion brands, sportswear, lifestyle goods, jewelry, plus a wide range of knick-knacks and other items. Alongside brands such as Lacoste, Nike, Esprit, and Adidas, there are plenty of local outlets selling good-quality traditional Indian clothing.
While M Block Market remains a firm favorite with the locals, it has seen something of a change in recent years, with more leisure facilities being added. In terms of places to eat, the market is now bursting with restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and dessert parlors, ranging from well-known food chains and upmarket international restaurants, to tiny food stalls selling street snacks such as panipuri and chaat.
The Greater Kailash M Block Market is the ideal place for keen shoppers, and can be enjoyed as part of a guided tour of Delhi's markets. As well as having an expert's opinion as you shop and haggle for bargains, this offers the added benefit of being privately transported to several of the city’s other popular markets.
Insider’s Tip: If you’re a fan of the traditional north Indian snack, paranthas, head to Not Just Paranthas, at M-84. Here you’ll find a huge range of paranthas, including meat, vegetarian, and even dessert ones, all inspired from Old Delhi’s Gali Paranthe Wali.
The Greater Kailash M Block Market is located in South Delhi, not far from Nehru Place. If not arriving as part of an organized tour, you can reach it by taking the bus or a taxi/auto-rickshaw from the city center. Alternatively, take the metro to Kailash Colony station and take an auto-rickshaw from there.
