Received a friendly welcome at the door. Service was prompt and efficient. The calamari was excellent and proudly presented in a short time. Nice to see management on the floor interacting with customers too. Will be back

We generally go for the platter for two which is extremely good value. Meal at Umhlanga did not disappoint, but experienced some attempt at hard sell by staff to try and get... More

Went along to this restaurant as its location was convenient and every member of our party of five enjoyed their respective meals, service was slightly slow but it was worth the wait as every plate was removed empty.

I found the food tastier here than any other Ocean Basket franchise.... More
