Most affordable for better quality in shoes, clothing, curtains and housewares. It's a clothing designers chocolate factory, and it's the middle EAST In Africa.

I Used to be at the Oriental Plaza everyday. Visited there a few weeks ago (after about 10 years) and surprised at the changes the plaza has gone through... Structurally everything is still the same, the stores have changed, the merchandise is very different from before. Linen stores, Leather stores, footwear stores, crockery, fabric stores etc are the order of the day... And of course the lovely food stalls. Prices still very keen but the variety is not as huge as it used to be. Lots of branded stores far cheaper than other malls without all the glitz and glamour. Brought back lots of memories... Still the bargain mall of Johannesburg.

As one of the visitors who has frequented this attraction from the first months it opened ( I still go there) it has lost the old charm which it originally had. So much has changed and the traders have really lost interest and the magic which brought bargain hunters to this venue. Same old, same old and no more magic!

Poor selection, so unlike them! just totally disappointing. Not what it used to be a few years ago when you could get anything all the time.
