I wouldn't suggest visiting this Ocean Basket. The mussels we ordered were not cooked properly and the hair was not properly removed from the mussels. The kids fish bites were measley portions as compared with other Ocean Baskets we've been to. The calamari was chewy and not cooked properly either. I asked to speak to a manager but everyone is...

When ever we crave seafood or sushi, we know just where to go. The Umhlanga Ocean Basket is great, most of the time you'll get seating without a reservation, and the food is tasty and consistent. The sushi kitchen doesn't disappoint and we always end up spending a good few hours there. Don't let parking put you off, there's a... More

We arrived as two families each with two boys aged 4 to 10, so it was really hard to keep them under control, The staff were very helpful and tried very hard to keep them occupied. Food was great, and every whimsical request was taken care of. They clean the prawns for kids before they grill them, and this is... More

An excellent array of all the seafoods that this chain is famous for, beautifully prepared and presented with many smiles. This is a standard in UMhlanga and worth every cent spent.

Service, quality and value for money. A franchise that never waivers from "who" they are. Set in a tranquil, yet fashionable part of Umhlanga. The "stand apart" here were the friendly and attentive waiters. Excellent!
