    I visit the oriental plaza only when necessary. The parking is a challenge, the prices are not cheap as you would expect and I find the service offered appalling. The traders have no sense of customer satisfaction.

    Visited the 'plaza on the hunt for ladies shoes. Despite my initial reluctance, I was pleasantly surprised with good organised parking, and a clean centre. I expected more disarray and disorder, but a credit to the centre management for keeping the place litter free in neat disorder !? A good 'power wash'of the floors would brighten the place up and make a great improvement at virtually no cost without detracting from the character that makes this centre the unique venue that it is ! Although the mass of shoe stores and curtain shops are endless and alike, with a little scratching and searching, almost anything is available at the 'Plaza. As always, know your prices and negotiate the best deal !

    i have being going to the plaza all my life, but nothing has changed in fact everything looks the same, in fact there is more curtain shops than anything else.

    Pricing: isnt great in fact on most clothing was priced more than big clothing outlets. my friend purchased a jeans at one of the shops, we went to a mall and the exact same jeans was R100.00 cheaper.

    Plaza has gone down nothing great about it.

    One can find some really great bargains at the plaza, ample material and curtain shops and perhaps the best samoosas from a variety of fast food shops. One can find almost anything at the plaza and most shops beat mall prices!! I wouldnt advise shopping during the festive season though, it becomes very conjested. Parking is sometimes a nightmare and from what i can remember, one has to fork out R1 or R2 to use the restrooms

    I've been here 3 times and go only when i have to. It's also very far from Midrand. They have a varity of things to buy. Not all are of great quailty. There are some shops that sell doggy stuff so when making a purchase make sure you check your item well. IT's nice if you want to shop for household stuff.

    If you are looking for Pakistani and Indian goods, made in China, you cannot find a better place. Unfortunately, I do not trust the shop owners. You are not sure if the products are the real thing or just good fakes. On thing is for certain, you will not be able to return goods here. The best thing about this mall is the Indian samoosas and curries.

    This place is always busy.
    If you are looking for shoes or curtains, you will enjoy it here as there is a wide range of shops with a good variety.

    The curtains can even be sewn whilst you wait.
    It's a nice experience and pass time to just browse around. There are not enough places to eat though, which is disappointing.

    If you're looking for Easternwear, this is certainly the place to go.
