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.

Loved the crunchy squids, oysters, line fish, calamari...everything was divine :) Special mention for the deserts - mud pie, malva pudding....we actually had two helping of them. They were so so good!

The service is excessively long but the food is reasonably good. Just about impossible to attract a server's attention....

My friends and I visited Ocean Basket during our visit to Johannesburg. We stayed at the Peermont Metcourt Suites. We enjoyed a seafood plate of squid, fish and scallops, a carafe of wine and ice cream for dessert. It was very cheap, approx. $15 AUD. The quality of food was very good and service was good. We took our time... More
