Very Nice Dining experience

We went to have dinner lots of times at this Ocean Basket, always are well received by Friendly staff, the food tastes good, the Prawns can Improve in Freshness, but because the prices are very reasonable affordable so I guess that is the reason, but either then that all good

First stumbled across Ocean Basket in 2005 and was very impressed by quality, quality, price and service. Ten years later we returned and were equally pleased! We had a huge platter of fish, prawns and calamari with a salad and bottle of white wine for under R400 which at the current exchange rate is just over £20. Truly amazing! The... More

My husband and I always eat at Ocean Basket when we travel. The food is always fresh and exactly how we order. Great value for the food you receive.

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.
