Had take away from here today. The calamari was OK. Ordered an 8 piece sushi and only 4 arrived, but they were very quick to send the remaining pieces after I called, so no worries. Pretty average. A bit pricey for what u get tho.

Portions are great at this Ocean Basket & the tentacles were some of the best we've had. The portion of fries was huge. We regularly order these items and both noticed they were bigger than usual at this branch. Sushi was fresh, and the service...More

I used to love this restaurant but it has become a nightmare. The food which took forever in an almost empty reastaurant was cold calamari tough as well as overcooked prawns. This was an awesome restaurant with cheerful staff but over the last 4 years...More

My family and I went out to ocean basket for an evening supper at 6 pm. The waiter was amazing and the Manager, Ryan was amazing. My father took a certain fish fried instead of grilled and he wasn't satisfied so they instantly adjusted their...More

This restaurant used to serve good food, especially this branch, but not anymore. Food is terrible, staff are terrible, management is terrible. This is definitely not a true reflection of South African seafood, so if you're a tourist, do yourself a favor and stay away....More

Food was great and service from our waiter too. However, I was acutely aware the management were a couple of finger clicking peacocks ordering their team about. At one point highly patronizing to a group of people whom apparently had too many sat around their...More
