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.

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.

The Oriental Plaza is chocked full of clothing, accessories, and just about anything you can imagine for sale, A word of caution that the clothing is low-priced but also not the highest quality. Some items are over the top expensive so be a savvy shopper....More

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.
