“The New OB fish - A Delight - Pangasius”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

My second visit this holiday. A warm - welcome back again - was the cheery greeting.
The service was too fast!! No sooner had the bread roll and butter been delivered, the main course arrived! I should have asked for a breather, but the food looked so great - why wait. Fortunately the chosen wine had already arrived!
Ever since O B introduced this Pangasius I have found it to be most enjoyable - and, no skin or bones! The fish and chips were cooked to perfection. The various Waitrons were most attentive. Even provided a small bowl of lemon & butter sauce without me asking ( a first time for me)
Whereas many O B's automatically provide Hand Wipes when delivering the Roll and Butter, I had to ask. They were promptly delivered.
The desert were delicious and rounded off a delightful Dinner.

“Good food, not a lot of atmosphere ”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

While on holiday my husband and I had a late breakfast then spent a good portion of the day shopping and did not have lunch. We decided to walk to Ocean Basket from our resort for a late lunch, early supper. We sat on the deck outside which was pleasant. The menu has many options and when hungry makes it hard to settle on a meal, however it's not overwhelming. We had olives for an appetizer and then shared a seafood platter for two. This came with a salad for the table which was quite good and ample if not a little more than required. The platter was full of prawns, fish, calamari and generally chips and rice. We asked to substitute the starches for stir fry vegetables and that was no problem. The platter was a very healthy portion for two people. Had we eaten lunch I believe it would have been a bit too much. The value was very good. We had a nice bottle of wine which was priced well. If you want a nice dinner or lunch go to Ocean Basket. If you want good food and a lot of atmosphere you will need to supply the atmosphere. That's not bad, just understand it's lacking in that respect.

“Great value for money”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This seems a popular place as we found it was quite busy and lots of activity and busy vibe.

Food taste was excellent, even though we waited a bit, quality seemed high.

Found the staff to be very helpful and the two managers who came to check on us, Lungi and Nsika made us feel quite nice.

Highly recommended

“A great experience”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

If you want an ocean view...this is not the place to go.
But if you want good food, friendly service and a great atmosphere I recoomend it.
Great at the price.
