It supposed to be "family dinner" on Friday night, but turned-out to a unpleasant disappointment. Service was absolutely slow and some guests, who came later than our family were served first, even finishing their meal, while we were not served yet. Some of the traditional starters were "not there". When, after long waiting we were served, food was cold, chips seemed old and unappetizing and to be honest looking oddly like "end-of-the-day" left-overs on our plates...It was a big disappointment, as in the past, we enjoyed dining at Ocean Basket, yet it was a big flop that night and we wouldn't like experiencing it again.

We are frequent visitors to Ocean Basket. My wife is a seafood fanatic and she always enjoyes the platter for one... I always enjoy my Feeeesh and chips.. Ocean Basket is a great family restuarant...

Ocean Basket can normally be relied upon to provide a good meal, at a sensible price well served. At this location the food was awful, service was second rate, the restaurant was noisy and there was a lack of management. A wait of 20 minutes resulted in food that was dripping in fat, over cooked and cool. The prawns were more like cardboard. The management, although present, did not offer to replace the food nor reduce the amount charged. Do not go.

After decided never to eat a any ocean basket again due to terrible customer service, when my brother and his family visited and wanted seafood, they went to Ocean Basket Maerua Mall to order take aways for us for dinner. The prawns tasted terrible and did not only smell burnt but tasted burned as well.
