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.

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.
