Meena Bazar is not your average streetside sari shop. It's a place you go to when there's a wedding in the family - a place full of shimmer and sparkle, a place women associate with mehendi, a mandap and a new life.
Meena Bazar is a powerful brand name in Hyderabad, and for good reason. Variety it has aplenty - a vast range of colors, materials and prices is on offer. Glittery golds and fiery oranges co-exist with the pale pinks and subdued blues here, and anything from a simple cotton dress material of Rs. 1,000 to an embroidered crepe sari of Rs. 5,000 is under this one roof. Both saris and dress material are available in cotton, silk, georgette and crepe. Ghaghras are available in embroidered silk fabric. And while the prices are certainly above average, so is, one could argue, the quality of the clothing.
The ambience of the store is one of subtle opulence. They let you know their standing without shouting it out aloud. The lighting is a tad too bright, but the service staff is knowledgeable and helpful without being nosey. All this adds up to one truth - in the traditional luxury clothing segment, few competitors can match the style and charm of Meena Bazar.
