I will try and visit the Ocean Basket at Emperors once a month. It is the best Ocean Basket in the East Rand. Food is always on time, fresh and hot. Good service and drinks come out quick and cold. it is a must for Seafood lovers. Nice smoking area, no kids play area, better for couples and adult groups.

Just flew in to Johannesburg from Australia staying at Emperor's Palace. Went looking for something to eat and discovered Ocean Basket. Partner tried the Kingklip fillet, I had the prawn special. Two wines, three beers and the two mains, R369.00 Absolute bargain and the food is excellent.

Always my first stop for Kingklip when staying at Emperors Palace. However this time is was not as good as usual. A little dry and tasteless. Service was fine as always.

I have recently visited Emperors Palace on two occasions during the festive season and had the opportunity to enjoy Nando's and sea food at Ocean Basket. I really enjoyed the food at both occasions.
