Coming from Australia we are used to huge prawns so did not order them after eating small dry ones at the Port Alfred OB. The fish was tasty, and the rest of the family seemed happy with their meals. The atmoshere was great, with decent service. This OB is popular, which was evident from the number of people inside in... More

The Ocean Basket in East London is a must for anyone visiting this beautiful, calm and relaxed city. Have eaten a number of times here with our family and each time surpassed the previous visit.

The best Seafood Restaurant in East London! It is located in Vincent Park Shopping Mall and there is safe parking close to the restaurant! Their service is excellent even during rush hour. But more importantly their seafood is outstanding. They also boast a 'Sushi Bar'! This Restaurant is perfect for any occasion!

The staff is well trained and friendly. The food is well prepared and always meets my expectations. Superbly situated in Vincent Park, where parking is secure and the parking fees are user friendly. My most favourite dish is the Solemate Platter!

Being a national chain, Ocean Basket has a standardized quality everywhere. It's not a bad thing though as the food is generally pretty good and well-priced. The casual atmosphere (although sometimes loud inside) lends itself to families with children.

Mediocre sea food with an amazingly aggressive attitude from management. This is the last place in East London that you would won't to eat at.
