If you are looking for a bargain then this is the place to go. Best to get there early as it gets very busy. While there you must have the samoosa from upstairs. Amazing.

Negotiating with the traders can be so much fun. Best curtains and all things Indian. A fine example of a bazaar. It is very busy and buzzes with activity...

You can go there for shopping, oriental clothes, linen and so on. One half day is enough to make your shopping around and take a sandwich or fish and chips.

Great place for bargaining, and finding anything you need. Locals shop & buy here as well. For real South African Indian food, you cant get any more authentic.

Great shopping and tourist attraction. Went for fabric and ended with more than just that. At the Plaza the term shop till you drop really does come into effect.

I can never visit south Africa without going to oriental plaza, the place reminds me of India. Beautiful Indian outfits, Indian food. Gate 1 has my favourite shop..Docrats. on the corner we have Indian cuisine

Parking is hectic, there's not much there that can't be had anywhere else. I don't think it's worth the effort of getting through the traffic, battling for parking, just to "walk around".

Variety of shops to choose from. Got to try the samoosas as they are very tasty. Also other Treats on offer.

I'm sorry I cannot help you. There are so many fabric shops there, I'm sure you could fine one that does sell what you are looking for.
