“Good food - good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

We went for a family meal to Ocean Basket and we had a great meal, not pricey and the portions just right. I love the fact that my kids eat free when we order a main meal - definitely makes going out all the better. We all had calamari and chips/rice. It was great - tender and tasty. The only thing I wasn't too impressed with were the tentacles served with the kids meals. My kids weren't too impressed with the look of them. Overall, the service was great and the staff friendly. We will be back

“Great sushi and tasty seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Try and reserve a table on weekends as the restaurant gets very busy. The service is good and the food generally doesn't take too long. I specifically like the seafood combo's and it's usually the first place I go to get sushi. The calamari is also good.

“Dinner with Friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

We met friends for a casual dinner at the restaurant on a Thursday evening. It was not too busy, and we were seated promptly with a waiter taking our drinks order. The wine was well chilled and well priced (KWV Sauvignon Blanc 2013). Two of us opted for Pick of the Ocean, (very good value for money) and the ladies for a seared salmom salad. We were very happy with the quality and quantity of the food. The restaurant is a bit noisey with a bit of an echo, but I suppose that goes with the ambience of a casual restaurant. Parking was free that night, and we all had an enjoyable evening. Will be back!
