It was great having dinner here the other night, great waiter and awesome food. The only thing missing was the friendly, full of life owner who sadly has passed away, you will be missed, but your staff are carrying your legacy well

Why do the smokers who stink up the air get to sit outside and enjoy the fresh evening air and the rest of us have to sit inside and be couped up in the noisy air conditioned restaurant. Change things up and stick the stinky smokers in a smelly corner somewhere

Although I am not a fan of family restaurants the Ocean Basket in Oakfields Shopping centre in Benoni is excellent. It's probably the busiest one I've ever seen and everything seems to go very smoothly. I think the fact that the owners/managers are always on site contributes to this. Well done!
