Use to be a regular visitor to Lord Prawn when they were in Durban 30 years ago. Decided to bring my 28 and 23 year old sons to experience what we enjoyed during our courtship. The evening was perfect as it was their dad"s birthday. We were not disappointed. The menu was vast. We were surprised to see some of... More

Rock cod - first time I had tasted it - was delicious, service a bit strange, as the waitron that seated us said he did wine and desserts only, but then sent someone else to serve desserts. Starters, mains and desserts great, nice variety of meals. Previous experience was not good with the Thai fish cakes, burnt my tongue so... More

The menu is varied and the fish and seafood excellent. We were a party of four and each thoroughly enjoyed our fish dish. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere pleasant. A great place to eat.

The food was fantastic and so affordable compared to surrounding restaurants. Difficult to find a decent affordable family friendly seafood place in Umhlanga and you are tops. I care more about good food rather than fancy decor. Food portions are superb ! Keep up the good name!

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having another delightful dinner at Lord Prawn on Sunday, 23 November 2014. We come to Umhlanga once a year for the past ten years and it became a tradition to have our first dinner on the day of our arrival at Lord Prawn. We were once again warmly welcomed by Nez,... More

I love to visit an establishment that still have the old school charm. To walk in and be seated with cloth serviettes. This is not the fast food franchise hurry up and eat place. The food was very good and a good wine selection. The staff was awesome. A must visit restaurant.

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.
