Interesting food, clothing and artefacts from India. Parking is a nightmare though. Nothing spectacular, but nice to kill time

Visited Oriental Plaza on a Saturday morning. Wonderful selection of shoe stores, luggage shops and men's clothing stores. Prices are reasonable. Be prepared to walk a lot if you interested in exploring all the shops. We also enjoyed a light lunch at one of the curry outlets and it was quite enjoyable.

I enjoyed the 6 samoosas and 2 milkshakes for... More

Oriental plaza provides visitors with a taste of local indian culture. Expect to be immersed in a buzzing mall that has open arcades on both ends together with a central grand bazar. Please note, majority of the shops close between 12h30 and 13h30 on fridays due to prayers. I suggest avoiding Saturday shopping as the place gets overly crowded. The... More
