Fellow Travelers! We weren't impressed by this restaurant. We were almost bullied in to the restaurant by a firmly "sales aggressive" waiter then told there was no fish available. Ocean Basket is a franchise known for their fish and chips and now they had run out of their core ingredient. The food was really tasteless and not even worth mentioning.... More

I loved it so much. One of the best chains in SA. Only a matter of time before this formula is exported. If you love sea food, this is the place. Good quality too,

Great to eat all kinds of sea foods especially the nicely well done fish fillets plus prawns. I always enjoy eating this combination lovely ,if you like sushi good try nice but smaller portions you need to order a lot.

The sushi is always nice and fresh. When Casey is there you get more than good service. We love the prawns. It is also nice that you are able to order from Mimmos and Nandos as an alternative, as our friend does not like seafood.

Had a dinner here and eat shrimps which is my favourite. I asked for garlic butter, but they gave me the ordinary garlic sause. Taste was ok, but the shrimps were overcooked. The service was avreagera. Not a place you bring your girlfriend, but ok if you only want something to eat

Popular seafood restaurant. We've eaten here several times over the years. Always enjoyed it and wanted to return, but the last time, we thought the food was not as good as usual. Maybe we were just tired. (Jetlagged) They always seem to have a crowd, so most people must think its good.

The food was at the normal Ocean Basket standard but the service was very poor. Most of the time we had to look around and call the waitress to get her attention to get some service. It can also be very noisy due to the number of people eating in the vicinity but that would be the same for all... More
