“Very decent”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

A good back up solution, but because I do not like chain food type of eating place and neons type of ambiance next to the parking lot of a mall.... In fairness, the shrimp curry was surprisingly excellent, well cooked with tender shrimps. We did not try the rest, nor the sushi. Very good service.

“Proper Fish & Chips”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Livingstone might be a long way from the ocean but you'd never know it. Ocean Basket has a wide menu from superb traditional fish and chips to full on platters and even sushi. The curry specials are awesome and the quality of service is up there with the best in town. Note - there are no non-seafood menu items except vegetarian (i.e. no beef, chicken, pork).

“Better than Lusaka by far”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

We live in Lusaka and have eaten at the Ocean basket in Arcades - I was informed that the one in Livingstone was better and so was the service. Obviously the `tourist` traffic in Livingstone in huge and I think this has rubbed off on the staff working in all the establishments there. The service was second to none - we were looked after by `Henry` who couldnt do enough and to top it off the food was excellent. Well worth a visit

“Great Seafood In A Landlocked Country?”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Wow, loved the food at Ocean basket. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food at this restaurant. The owner was amazing bringing us tasty and hot food and it was great sitting out on the verandah of the restaurant. Highly recommend this.

“Not bad”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

This place is quite OK, with friendly service and not to high places. But the place lacks personality and atmosphere. It is a good option if you have not been able to plan anything better and you want a quick fix.
