Every year we go back to this old established restaurant and we are never disappointed. We shared a kilo of prawns followed by a Dom Pedro. The prawns were perfectly cooked and came out of the shells so easily. We will be back.

Walking around Umhlanga looking for a place to eat that I would not find back home in Cape Town. Came across Lord Prawn but from the outside it looked so dark inside so was not sure what to expect or to actually enter. However, I...More
