A group of 4 of us flying to George spending the night at the airport hotel in Johannesburg airport decided to try the Ocean Basket for dinner. 3 of us ordered prawns, 2 Queen & 1 King order. 1 of us had a platter of prawns, fish & calamari. We are from Louisiana so we know good seafood. Prawns grilled... More

I just loved the food, well cooked, well served, hot and juicy and nutritious. Not even pricey and the servings are generous. If they improve the service, like take orders on time and bring drinks and food on time, they deserve an excellent rating!! Bravo

We needed to go to a mall to pick up a few items, while staying out by the O.R. Tambo Airport. We asked the front desk where we could eat, and they suggested the Ocean Basket at the East Rand Mall. It's a local, family-style restaurant, with very large portions and friendly service. We had a calamari appetizer, a large... More

Probably the best place to eat at the O R Tambo airport. Great place for the family, as well as if you are trying to grab a meal on the run. Service is quick, Food is always fresh. The prawns are always good but the highlight for me is always the Kingklip and the Sole. I eat here at least... More

I recommend. Good value for money and a nice environment to have a family meal. Tip: Ask for Calamari as starter and fish of the day. They are fresh and amazing.

Ocean Basket in the JHB international airport is a welcome addition. Bog standard menu, but really nice to find raw oysters. Food is good, prawns and fish all good. Service is standard for JHB - overbearing and intrusive and borderline incompetent, but pleasant once you have given up. Did not like it that people came into the restaurant to beg... More

When we want to go out for a bite, we always choose Ocean Basket. It has a nice atmosphere and the service is always good. The food is fresh and served hot every time. I must also compliment them on their crispy chips - just as i like it! The staff are always friendly. A real good place to eat.
