Our verdict – The collection at Mochi is fashionable and contemporary though priced slightly on the higher side. Also, do walk and check the footwear you plan to buy, especially the high heel ones. Avoid going for the delicate design ones for regular wear as they may get damaged soon. Customer service out here is extremely helpful and well-informed. The store being located at SGS Mall provides ample parking space to its customers.
