Our verdict -
Budhiraja Stores is a one-stop-shop for those who love video games. From handheld ones to consoles, you will find them all here. Their toy collection is also good though there is a very limited collection in terms of outdoor sports. Their USP though is that they are up-to-date with the latest gizmos in the gaming section. The shop is well kept but could improve with respect to space. The attendants don’t bother and remain much to themselves. Parking space is available in Sector 17’s parking lot.
