I had expected something even more exotic, but this is almost like a normal shopping mall, with hundreds of small stores, mainly run by Indians. Shoes, clothes, textiles, leather goods, household goods, can all be had at decent prices, but I had hoped for even more exciting oriental foods, spices etc.

This used to be our go-to place for good bargains on original items. There are still lots of shops, but if you're looking for original brands, be wary and savvy about what you are buying. If you're generally looking for discounted shopping at a great price then I would rather suggest that you first go to China Mall, located very... More

We visited to buy jewellery for our wedding in December 2015. It was my first visit to oriental plaza but we found all the accessories we needed for our indian wedding. An interesting place with loads of different shops and loads of discount places.

The Oriental Plaza is a rather ordinary discount mall. Rather drive past it and go the the corner of Mint Road and Commercial Road and explore the sweet shops and market in that area, it is much more fun! This is the original Fordsburg. Also do not hesitate to go to Mayfair, just beyond, great Turkish restaurants and delicatessens.

We always enjoy to visit the Oriental Plaza. A kind of shopping mall, where you can get almost everything. tailored suits & dresses, kitchen accessories etc. The atmosphere is great, and gives you the oriental feeling (Bazar) like in Morocco, Turkey, India etc.
