Took some friends for a meal at the Ocean Basket. We loved the food, the platters are amazing. If you like fish this is the place for you! The service was excellent and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very welcoming.

My husband and I went out to dinner whilst in Umhlanga Rocks. We decided to try the Ocean Basket, as we've had very good experiences at other similar restaurants back home. It is really big, and has a huge balcony outside, which could be nice. However, we are not used to the extreme heat in KZN, and being February, it... More

I took family visiting from Canada out for lunch at OB Umhlanga Village in Umhlanga Plaza. We were all pleasantly delighted with the quality of service and seafood. Well-done and keep up the great work! Definitely the best OB in Dbn or Jhb for that matter! Dhaneil (Jhb)

A lovely place for Seafood and Sushi. We visit it each year. The seafood platters are wonderful. The sushi fresh and tasty. Spoil yourself if you like seafood.

The Ambiance is good on the first floor. I have eaten better at other Ocean Baskets in Johannesburg. However, the service was good and menu is the usual Ocean Basket selection. Perhaps, it now needs to be freshen up. 3/5

The Ocean Basket is always a good fall-back for the family when wanting to eat out, but not spend too much money. Our recent visit as a group of seven to the Ocean Basket at its new location was again a good experience, with trusted food, enjoyable wine and boisterous conversation at the table and throughout the restaurant! The outing... More
