We went to OB for lunch at 13:00, got the sushi & normal menu and after 10 minutes we ordered our sushi, just to find out that the chef hasn't started preparing for lunch.... at 1 in the afternoon! I insisted that they sort that out because we've already had our drinks and were there for lunch (hence the menu's). The waiter went to speak to the manager and they said that OK, we can order sushi. 45!! minutes after our order ( there were only 2 tables that afternoon) I was ready to get up and walk out, they finally brought out our sushi. The avo was rock hard, not edible and sushi just bland. Overall we were really dissapointed. Management is definitely lacking, more concerned about smoking cigarettes in front of the restaurant. For good sushi (and service) rather go to Karoopot.

We have been to different Ocean Basket's outlets and every time we can rate them from excellent to good.service and food.
So we did not hesitated to go this one in Odtsthoorn. When we arrived we found a bit strange that it was quite empty of patrons but....we still went in.
The service was very bad an not attentive at all. I ordered some portuguese sardines as a starter. They were over cooked and NOT FRESH (frozen for tooooo long??) . The other food ordered was not at all of an Ocean Basket standards that we are used to. After this we understood why the place was empty when all the other restaurant were well attended. Very disappointed and I will not come back to this OB.
