You can get everything you want from this place, they have everything and it is very safe with lots of security around. Be ready to haggle and you can get really good prices. Outside is a bit scary with people trying to sell you things but once inside I felt safe.

A very nice place for shopping. Good things, good prices. Ask for their better price. Negotiate in stores. Closes, shoes, African presents.

I visit the oriental plaza often on my own or with friends when we are in search of tablecloths as well as fabrics for various purposes and occasions. It's also a good place if you are looking for bargains!

Myself and 3 colleagues visited at the end of May to shop for accessories for our conference gala dinner. The girls enjoyed their shopping for bargains as well as a quick bite at World of samoosas.

What a good experience and some excellent street food. Anything from Indian curries, pizzas and chip butties with loads of meats. Yum!

If you want to have an experience of India beyond the borders of India, the Oriental Plaza will take you there with one click of your heels.... the smells and fragrances are reminiscent of India, but only the good parts..... it is an experience you won't forget. Oh and don't forget to buy samoosas to take home with you.
