We ate dinner here due to a delayed flight, I would say that the standard is as per what one would expect from an Ocean Basket, good food with a decent variety and mind price range. Besides the seating area they had a separate sushi bar also, and of note, and enclosed smokers lounge for the smokers. The service was... More

A very good value and tasty meal here with terrific service from Victoria. Calamari 3 ways, and the prawns with grilled fish were delicious.

Spending an evening at Ocean Basket at Emperors Palace, first you will be caught up in the energy and excitement of the passing crowd. The service is quick and the food is excellent and hot upon arrival. All-in-All a healthy and pleasant evenings dining.

The food was very good as ever. BUT I paid with a credit card that I hadn't used for a long time and two days later was alerted by my bank about suspicious transactions that were not mine. I reported this to Ocean Basket (even telling them the name of our waiter) but almost a month later have heard nothing.... More

I should have known after my last visit to an Ocean Basket not to return. But we thought let's give it one more try... Big mistake. Bad service from a grumpy waiter although I don't really blame him as he has to deal with obnoxious tourists but I blame management. Terrible sushi. Overall nasty experience. We will not be back....

I went there very late even as they were closing, but the food, service was served up timeously, and well presented, and with a big smile. Always find their sushi particularly appetizing!

Between flights from Cape Town to Harare, the Ocean Basket at O.R.Tambo was a nice stopover. It offers a large seating space and so we could keep an eye on our luggage. There were a few families with small children, working singles and socialising couples. We enjoyed my firm favourite of fish and chips served hot! Highly commended!

Not the same food as previously. Disappointed in the fish because it was full of bones and we could see it is not the same fish they served previously. We also had sangria the white wine but it was tasteless. We call the waiter and tell her that it taste like water with wine. She return with another one but... More
