We had lunch at Ocean Basket in Vincent, East London and must say this is still the best place for sea food. The service was once again tops. Our meal was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our outing. Regards Ben

The food is generally very good however the wife has had problems more than once with the kingklip being underdone, however this is has been sorted out with a minimal amount of fuss.

This is my favourite Fish Restaraunt. I have enjoyed some great meals and always great SERVICE. One of my favourites is KINGKLIP. The last few times it ha been delicious. This week, for a change, I tried the Curried Fish Dish. Well,the chips and all the trimings were up to the usual high standard, BUT, THE CURRIED FISH WAS "TERRIBLE".... More

Having heard so much about Ocean Basket in London, we decided to give it a try while on holiday in SA. We were blown away by the great food and service. Would recommend it to everyone.

We love this Ocean Basket. The food is always good and the service excellent. The value for money offering is also really good. I also like that they have a more "grown up" kiddies menu that offers children options like sushi etc. We have been going for many years as its an affordable family restaurant that very rarely disappoints.

The Ocean Basket is my wife best place to going when out shopping in Vincent as she doesn't eat meat and is Gluten free. It is always good service and the meals cover a good range of taste. But I always end up having Fish and Chips, I just like them so much.
