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.

One used to stand in a queue to get seated now you... More

Like most of the franchise type restaurants, good value for money, but nothing special. You go there to eat, you have a reasonable meal at a reasonable price, that is it.
