Had a business dinner at the one in Menlyn Park Mall. Service was a bit slow, but the dinner was very good, and very reasonable. Good choices if you have to eat gluten-free. Good range of seafood choices

The value at ocean basket differs significantly between branches. I frequented this group as my safe go to restaurant on trips at least twice per week mostly all over Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Limpopo, but since they started charging me R50 to replace starch with a side salad, they lost me. Their food is normally fresh, well prepared and very tasty... More

The sushi portions are getting smaller and smaller, the salads seem to consist of cucumber. Used to go a few times a month, but it is sliding down the list..

This is not the first time we eat at the Ocean Basket. This particular restaurant was at the Brooklyn mall. Our experience has usually been good with reasonably good service and good food. The grilled kingklip is very good. Fish and chips also good. The prices are a bit high, but for good quality sea food it is probably worth... More
