The first time I visited Forum was June 2006. I had just come to Bangalore and a friend took me to this mall saying it was the most happening mall in Bangalore and after 1 year, I concur with him. For people in the software industry, weekends are somewhat of a blessing and we look for weekends as something of a God's Gift.Alomst every weekend, a visit to the Forum is a must.


There is something for everyone here.Mostly the people who come here are window shoppers and I must say the salesmen in the shops have learnt well to distinguish the genuine shoppers from the window shoppers.Some of the stores are worth mentioning:


1.The Landmark is a very big book store as well as DVD/CD store.They also have a XBox 360 near the book shelfs.I remember playing there for half an hour at a stretch.Pros: You can find all kinds of books here.I have seen people reading entire books here.A big collection of DVD/CD's are also available here.Cons: People reading books do not have place to sit, They have to read the book standing.!!!!(lol).


2.ImagineThis is an exclusive Apple store.Good store.If you want to shop, go on weekdays.Weekends mostly consist of people just walking around in the shop as the drool factor of Apple products is quite high.Pros: Good ambience of the shop.Cons:The salesman doesnt know when the iPhone is gonna hit India.


3.Nik NishAn apparel store mostly consisting of gift items.Good store if you want to but something for your gf/bf.




  1. And you have the usual me toos' for every mall, Nike, Adidas, Reebok and Weekend which have a sale running throughout the year.EateryTransitThis is a very good place to eat.A large choice of cuisine is available at decent cost( read decent mall cost) and food tastes good as well.Pros: A large choice of cuisine.




Cons: No privacy.Tables are quite near each other.Always full.Firangi Paani A very high end restaurant.Food tastes excellent and hospitality also deserves a mention.Pros: Ambience.The restaurant has a pre Independence Railway station theme.


Cons: Book tables well in advance.And you have the usual McD, KFC.Who doesnt know about them!!!MoviesThere is Priya Village Roadshow(PVR) with three types of multiplexes:PVR ClassicCinema EuropaGold ClassPros: Good compared to the INOX in Garuda Mall and I feel PVR is much better than INOX.Ticket costs are much lower before 12 Pm on weekdays. Watch a movie and go to office if your office has flexible timings.


Cons:Ticket booking only through credit card and cash. No debit card ticket booking.Final VerdictOne of the best malls in Bangalore.An excellent place to visit during the weekends as there are many things to watch.Parking is an issue, though.


Good location as it captures Indiranagar as well as the Koramangala market.Auto drivers outside ask exorbitant rates.Near the Koramangala entry of the mall, there are some contests going on and there is a good crowd there as well.If you feel you can win and wanna become famous for 2 hours, go participate.
