If you want to buy curtains, materials, smart wear, evening wear or shoes this is the place all under one roof. Was there just before 11`o clock and some shops was not open yet, maybe it was in the middle of the week. But beware on Fridays they also close between 12 and 2 for prayers, so plan you visit....

We love the Bunny Chow. The portion was good, freshly cooked meal and it was tasty!! Top of al, it is halal and price was very affordable. Tried the samosas too, good to snack on throughout your excursion in Jozi.

Interesting however, I did expect a bit more. Was a bit disappointed. More of the same clothing, linen, curtains, jewelry, shoes, etc. Parking is a nightmare not to speak of traffic and it is not a nice save area.

Interesting food, clothing and artefacts from India. Parking is a nightmare though. Nothing spectacular, but nice to kill time

The best place for bargains and you have to ask for discount. Prices are very competitive. No problem for parking and very safe.

Visited Oriental Plaza on a Saturday morning. Wonderful selection of shoe stores, luggage shops and men's clothing stores. Prices are reasonable. Be prepared to walk a lot if you interested in exploring all the shops. We also enjoyed a light lunch at one of the curry outlets and it was quite enjoyable.
