If you want fresh prawns look nowhere else. The standard hasn't dropped in the last twenty years and you will not be disappointed with the food. The wine list is a little limited but go there for the prawns and compromise a little on the wine side.

My absolute favourite eating place in Umhlanga. Just laid back and with outstanding quality seafood! In one week, we ended up there three evenings and skipped other places to be with the Lord. And that despite the fact that the waiters are occasionally a bit pushy (sorry guys, I just like taking my time to choose my food - o... More

I first ate at Lord Prawn in the late 1970s when it was in West Street, Durban. It later moved to Umhlanga Rocks and I have had many great seafood meals there over the years. Also enjoyed Lord Prawn in Sandton, but unfortunately it has closed.

Services were excellent and the food was good! Owner came to serve us himself which we appreciated! Variety of seafood was available. We sat on the deck and we had not smoking people around us which also assisted in it being a nice place.

You want value for your buck and some of the best unpretentious seafood?? This is the place to go. No frills, just good food at very reasonable prices with fast, friendly and efficient service. A must for any family outing.

We had a family dinner here. Menu caters for everyone. Wide selection. Service is really good. The decor is definitely not modern and at first impression looks a little dated. Our meals were superb. Our table enjoyed seafood, curries and even pasta and everyone commented on the good meal. Reasonably priced too. Very accommodating with our small children too. Lovely... More
