Ocean Basket is a great option while staying near the airport. Cheaper then Capetown Fishmarket and a good value. Great shushi as well.

Delicious seafood at an excellent price, with great service! Easily accessible from any of the three Peermont hotels or from OR Tambo itself by free shuttle. I highly recommend it.

Some time ago, I thought the Japanese arrogant in wanting to restrict the use of the term 'sushi' outside Japan to properly-trained chefs. Well, their wish would have helped customers in this case. The sushi and sashimi at this place are not fresh at all; the Japanese salad is truly disgusting, with a big lump of wasabi (yes!!) on top... More

We stayed in one of the hotels in the Empress Palace complex and decided to have seafood. Ocean Basket looked attractive, but it did not meet our expectations. We tried the mixed platter to share (shrimps, mussels, calamari, fries, fish) and Sashimi platter of Tuna and Salomon. The display on the platter was quite messy and the Sashimi was not... More

Good fast food, great taste and reasonable prices. Lovely theme in line with franchise. the Shrimp was great, may need to have more spicy varieties though.

Loved the fresh calamari rings along with the seafood basket. Quite gracious servings sufficient enough for 2.

This is one of the better airport restaurants that we have been to. Service excellent, food very good and prices were very reasonable. If you are ever in the Johannesburg airport worth going to Ocean Basket.

While waiting for our flight back to London we thought we would have a last bit of seafood, Ocean Basket is situated in the Domestic Terminal which is handy as we were connecting from George through to London. The staff were very courteous and happy to seat us wherever we wanted to sit. We ordered a Black Label R18 and... More

Was staying overnight for business and felt like something fishy. I ordered a Carafe of their red wine which was 250ml, excellent value for money and very drinkable. I also ordered a bottle of sparking water. For the starter I had their Seared Salmon Salad - which was great. Six decent sized slices of fresh salmon, very lightly seared on... More

Who knew you could have a great seafood meal at the airport ? We had the best prawns at the OR Tambo terminal while waiting for a flight. It could have been seaside. Absolutely a great choice and most reasonable prices.
