My visit to the ocean basket at the Glen in Kempton park is always very delightfull. The manager is a happy and very helpful person. He attends to the needs of customers even when I want a slightly different meal, he will assist and she if he can help. The place is always bussing and busy. The atmosphere is great

Ocean Basket is a great option while staying near the airport. Cheaper then Capetown Fishmarket and a good value. Great shushi as well.

Delicious seafood at an excellent price, with great service! Easily accessible from any of the three Peermont hotels or from OR Tambo itself by free shuttle. I highly recommend it.

Some time ago, I thought the Japanese arrogant in wanting to restrict the use of the term 'sushi' outside Japan to properly-trained chefs. Well, their wish would have helped customers in this case. The sushi and sashimi at this place are not fresh at all; the Japanese salad is truly disgusting, with a big lump of wasabi (yes!!) on top... More

We stayed in one of the hotels in the Empress Palace complex and decided to have seafood. Ocean Basket looked attractive, but it did not meet our expectations. We tried the mixed platter to share (shrimps, mussels, calamari, fries, fish) and Sashimi platter of Tuna and Salomon. The display on the platter was quite messy and the Sashimi was not... More

This is one of the better airport restaurants that we have been to. Service excellent, food very good and prices were very reasonable. If you are ever in the Johannesburg airport worth going to Ocean Basket.

While waiting for our flight back to London we thought we would have a last bit of seafood, Ocean Basket is situated in the Domestic Terminal which is handy as we were connecting from George through to London. The staff were very courteous and happy to seat us wherever we wanted to sit. We ordered a Black Label R18 and... More
