Popped in for a quick dinner. Our regular choice is the Famous Fish which we enjoyed on this occasion with half rice/half stir fried veggies. This is a taste we love and our kids long for from "home" when living overseas. Wonderful value for money. Restaurant was quiet early evening and service prompt and attentive.

Had lunch with my elderly mum. The restaurant is wheelchair accessible so a plus for us. Service was quick and friendly and the food good. The kingklip was ok but a little disappointing to read that it was from New Zealand and thus frozen. Good value.

Love the speed at which your food comes. The staff is really well trained and professional. In spite of the restaurant being packed that day we never waited and our food came out warm, fresh and in big portions. I have one thing against Ocean Baskets and it's the dry oven chips they serve. Really a let down and would've... More

Ocean Basket is one food franchise that never disappoints. The staff are well trained, listen to and respect the client, the atmosphere is as festive or as peaceful as you want it to be (day to work or have that business meeting or evening to enjoy a romantic dinner or celebrate a special occasion)! The food is a joy -... More

Ocean Basket is a seafood style restaurant modeled on a pseudo-Greek style. It seems to be a franchise-based enterprise. However, food, quality, affordability, service usually excellent. We love it. Helpings generous. Consider sharing a small platter which makes it cost effective to eat out. Nice ambiance. Highly recommended.

My mouth always starts watering the moment I walk through the door of an Ocean Basket. The staff were very friendly and the waiting time was reasonable. My sister and I shared a platter for two. The prawns were grilled to perfection and the calamari was delicious.
