Food was good with a fair amount of seafood options. Decently presented and good value for money. Polite staff. Would return.

We often go to this restaurant on Friday evenings.Our group of 5 were all very happy with their meals. I ordered my usual - prawn and calamari combo with the prawns done 'scampi style.' and no squid heads. It was excellent.

I'd been travelling in excess of 24 hours when I visited Ocean Basket, Sandton City. I've been here before on several occasions and was looking forward to enjoying some of their excellent seafood. I arrived at 7:30pm and ordered fried kingklip with chips and a beer. While waiting for the food to arrive I noticed one of the staff members... More

I always enjoy Ocean Basket but I have to admit that I was bitterly disappointed when I ordered takeout. Staying in Sandton whilst attending a conference. Food was delivered to my hotel room and it looked horrible. Both the calamari and prawns very greasy and chips was re-fried. Not such a great idea for OB takeout.

I can tolerate average food bit I hate poor service but I was blown away by both. The waiter was gracious and attentive while the 'Da Beeg One' combo i had awesome taste. The prices were uber-reasonable and i ended up... More

There is such a wide variety of sea food and sushi and the staff are great. The environment is welcoming. The food tastes great, im a sucker for their prawns with the buttersauce. The prices are reasonable for this food. Great joint to eat atm
