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.

We visited this indian plaza in the beginning of January 2017. Safe and secure parking. Clean toilets and clean complex and safe shopping. Lots of shops for curtains and bedding, material, clothing, weddings, leather goods, indian spices and food, toys, kitchenware and almost anything and you can bargain for good price. I enjoyed the 6 samoosas and 2 milkshakes for... More

I have reviewed this centre before but visited again yesterday. Although not far from the CBD and not in a great area it can be reached by car and is only a 5 minute drive from the Smit St off ramp of the M1. The Plaza has always been known as the place to buy fabric and clothing but you... More

Oriental plaza provides visitors with a taste of local indian culture. Expect to be immersed in a buzzing mall that has open arcades on both ends together with a central grand bazar. Please note, majority of the shops close between 12h30 and 13h30 on fridays due to prayers. I suggest avoiding Saturday shopping as the place gets overly crowded. The... More

Not a very good place to shop from. Cheap inferior products. Have to check thrice when you are buying something so that you dont get conned.

If you looking for a deal... this is the place to go. Although very busy and crowded, if you looking for almost anything, especially textiles and clothing, this your one stop location. Samoosas and Curries are on offer at many little restaurants...
