A must when in Umhlanga for the best king prawns. It is one of the older restaurants in Umhlanga but the food is really great. Worth a try.

We were at the coast for a few days, and for so long I have been looking forward to some very nice prawns. So, I decided to treat myself one afternoon. There are just so many restaurants in Umhlanga, and it is quite difficult to make a decision. I thought, with the name Lord Prawns, surely the prawns should be... More

We haven't been there for over a year but nothing has changed,it is still a great place to eat. The staff were friendly and we were well looked after despite there being some big tables. Delicious prawns and calamari, generous portions and a tasty dom pedro to follow. Very impressed with them and would recommend

One of our favourite places to have prawns. We opted for the kilo of queen prawns which we shared and once again they were beautifully cooked. Finished the meal with a Dom Pedro each - great to be back.

Food was overcooked (prawns, lobsters), fries and onion rings were soft and crunchier/better cooked by any fast food restaurant. Oysters weren't shucked properly (adductor muscle not cut). Very poor performance by a restaurant that calls itself a seafood restaurant. We were heavily disappointed. Unless you are after an overpriced,casual fish and chips shop, just don't bother.

This is a favourite eatery for our family. We have never been disappointed. The service is good, the food delicious and well presented not to mention the outstanding curry. Good value for money. Worth a visit or three.

The place is very old in that it has been around for over 25 years. The food and service bears testament to the fact they have survived in such a competitive environment seeing many restaurants come and go fast in the 25 yr period.

We have been visiting Lord Prawn for the past 21 years. It never fails to please! The food is excellent - seafood or otherwise - but the prawn special is legendary and affordable! The Avocado Ritz is yummy and the fresh local oysters are delicious (try the Oyster Shots too). The restaurant was established over 40 years ago and the... More

Lord Prawn is situated in an unassuming place, and the décor is plain and reserved, almost old school. But oh my... the service and food was absolutely excellent! They have different waiters fulfilling different roles, and always within eyesight and easy to call. We ordered food for the kids, which arrived promptly, and they enjoyed it thoroughly. Our order (lobster... More
