Mostly people go there for inexpensive materials, curtains and clothing. But really the highlight of the place is (at least) two authentic SA Indian restaurants, one called The Golden Peacock

whenever I need to buy curtains, wedding attire, suits or formal attire, I go to the Plaza. The baby shop is also worth a visit. You can bargain for good prices.

Hi. I know that there are many brands of coconut oil available, but I don't have knowledge of that particular one.

There are so many shops offering quality fabric. It's merely up to you to look around and find what you prefer, both in design & price. You must bargain as well.
