My visit to Ocean's basket was memorable and it was a great time with colleagues. We had fun talking around an amazing platter of food. The service was good and food was value for money. Recommended restaurant for anyone who loves Sushi.

The Ocean Basket at the oval has one of the best views in Westlands. area. The Resturant is so beautiful with very kind and well trained staff. The food is excellent especially the fish which is served in a platter with french fries.
