Birthday evening disappointment

Regrettably it is no longer that superior restaurant I remembered like the one in Joburg. The service was sloppy, the prawns not up to standard and they could not wait for us to leave at 9.30. There are far better seafood places in Umlanga today.

If you looking for great seafood then Lord Prawn is the place. Always consistent. Reasonable prices too. Homely atmosphere. Extensive menu. Fair service. Also snails and oysters are a must. Always fresh and again consistent.

We were warmly invited by most competent waiters - the greek salad was crispy - very good feta and olives and then the ultimate prawns - excellent taste - the meat firm - delicious sauces - perfect chips - all finished with a delicious Don Pedro - most attentive and well informed staff - a perfect evening!

Order the 2 KG of Prawns - it is absolutely delicious. Great service, really super fresh seafood and a very laid back atmosphere. One of my new favorite places to eat when visiting Durban. Highly recommended.

We had dinner there. The ribs were great, the lamb curry was delicious, but was disappointed with the amount of bones in the curry. The veal was nothing to rave about.

If a restaurant is still in business after forty years, you just know they must be doing it right! My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having dinner on Wednesday, 8 April 2015 at Lord Prawn during our holiday in Umhlanga Rocks. We go to Umhlanga every year for the past ten years and not once did we... More

This was a repeat visit after many years absence. The ambiance was as we remembered it - complete with Beatles background music. Prawns were properly cooked but presentation was lacking and we did not feel the offerings were good value. A number of guests, including ourselves, had trouble with card payment due, apparently, to poor communications - this needs to... More

Good food that comes quickly. The seafood does not smell fishy & seems fresh. For starters had the calamari , mussel pot. Mains had the linefish. Recommendable. The only negative is its priced more on the fine dining range but the atmosphere is loud & the restaurant is vert small & gets very crowded. The service is good but everyone... More
