Good for what it is

Good food, excellent service but very loud, if you dine inside. With the weather though outside is always an option and much more pleasant.

Our first night in Johannesburg we were a bit of a loss for what to do for our evening meal. We chose the Ocean Basket. The food was okay but definitely not a fresh sea food restaurant which is understandable being hours from the sea. The meal was delivered well and staff was very polite, price was acceptable and everyone... More

I'm not a big fan of seafood in general but I love the South African standard of fried Hake & Chips and wow, Ocean Basket knows how to get it right! And at R49 at the time of writing, their Hake & Chips is unbelievable value for money. My Hake & Chips arrived in the usual 'Pan' presentation which I... More

Whilst the service was a bit slow, the food was very well priced and tasted wonderful. Prawns were a specialty, though the fish was also great. Happy to go back on a second visit - so I guess it means we liked our first experience!!

Ocean basket seems to have nailed it when it comes to putting good value for money and freshness on the sushi plate in particular. Best value for money by far at the airport. Waiting time short, service always with a smile, food fresh and nicely presented. Good job.
