Stopped over for lunch while out for a day of shopping. Service was swift and friendly and our orders were fresh, tasty and filling. Highly recommended to all.

I seem to have problems at all Ocean Basket outlets. Umhlanga's franchise is no exception! The food was good but our order was mixed up when it got to us and had to go back to be sorted out...

Any visit to Umhlanga Rocks for holiday must include This Ocean Basket. You are always assured of a very warm friendly reception. This visit was no exception! The vibe is good, as also the food. I was most excited when they offered their Special - Baby Kingklip. One of my favourites and now very scarce. As they were about 500g... More

Service was good until the main dish was served, then they kind of forget you exist. More ventilation is needed in the upper area. Food was great.

We had a very disappointing dinner. The food was barely average and my plate was on the cold side, spoiling my dinner. Prawns were on the dry side and very small. My partner had a cheese dish and said it was good. One bizarre incident was when we were requested to move tables because an "Important guest" wanted to smoke... More

One of the best Ocean Basket restaurants we have visited. Very friendly staff, the manager personally advises of specials of the day, and regularly checks that everything is in order. Service excellent, and the food very fresh. Sushi can be recommended. Good value for money.

They have a huge variety of dishes and especially the combos are nice if you want to try several dishes at once. The service was welcoming and the meals were served very quickly. Food quality was okay, but nothing special.

Ocean Basket in Umhlanga is a great eating experience. The three of us went for dinner on Thursday evening and really enjoyed Fish and Chips, Fried Calamari, and the Seared Salmon. Our waiter was excellent, friendly and efficient. This Sunday evening we decided to try the Sushi, and were so glad we did. It was absolutely delicious and so fresh.... More
