The Workshop is housed in a vast Victorian building which was a former railway workshop originally known as Workshop No.1. With girders left intact, it is a totally transformed showpiece, an up-market shopping, browsing, dining and entertainment complex. It houses over 120 specialty shops and Victorian-style barrow stalls, which decorate the ground floor. You'll find everything from expensive clothes to fast food. This complex probably has the largest collection of African curio shops in Durban. There is tax-free shopping for tourists and a helpful information desk.
I was born & brought up in and around that place.
But after years have passed, the place is now over populated. I still do enjoy going there.
Every Sunday I use to have breakfast in Oriental, I love their Chicken & Mayo toasted sanwiches.
I would love to go there sometime when I go to Durban.
It's vibrant and funky and a nice taste and spicy smell of Africa in a safe environment. The shopping was reasonable and YES the curio shop is AMAZING. Try the Ethnic menu or an authentic Bunny Chow (Look it up!!! ) at the Wozani Grill (Means Come In in Zulu)
