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...

The oriental Plaza has been around for as long as I can remember and I used to go there with my Mom when she was buying fabrics to make dresses in the day ! A little bit if India in the city ! The food and especially samosas are awesome ! Some bargains, but you have to barter though !... More

I've been there several times, looking for different items. It has appliances, clothing, jewellery, toys, decorations, curtains, etc. almost everything you need including food. It is packed with beautiful quality products. It's a must visit.

My wife loves it, be ready for hours of aimless walking around, multiple times looking for the best bargains. It is worth the walking and shopping and shopping and walking, you find all kinds or crazy things here.

You can find anything you need at the right price, and in variety at no loss of quality. Prices can still be negotiated - good food also available while you shop

As a tourist this Plaza really isn't worth bothering with. It sells mainly made to measure curtains and suits, kitchenware and lots of shops selling cheap plastic footwear and clothes
