We had two meals here & both were very good. Freshly made Sushi to order, delicious queen size prawns & kingklip a most delicious South African fish. Roy served us both times - very friendly. A great meal at reasonable prices. One visit had free Wifi & the next visit it was down.

If you dont want to research or experiment with a unknown restaurant... This is the place to go to. Fresh fish, tasty prawns... family friendly. Not the 5* cuisine one is looking for but it works.

My husband and I had a late lunch at Ocean Basket after arriving earlier in Umhlanga Rocks on 4 April 2015. The restaurant is conveniently situated away from the main hustle and bustle of Umhlanga Rocks. There is also plenty of parking available. We were warmly welcomed at the door and told that they no longer have a smoking area... More

My wife and I decided to go to the Ocean Basket in Umhlanga as we had not been there for a while and have enjoyed the meals before, but normally have their seafood platters. This time I decided to order the fish of the day, which the waiter told me was Dorado. Dorado is an amazing eating fish and is... More

This was my first visit to this particular Ocean Basket and it wasn't up to standard. Eight of us were there for dinner.. Half of us wanted line fish - they had run out. As an alternative we asked for kingklip. Only as they were they were starting to bring the food for the rest of the group did they... More

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

Have eaten in Ocean Basket restaurants at various locations in South Africa - I am always amazed at how cheap the meals are when compared to the UK. 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.
