We shared a seafood platter for 2 today and it was as good as ever before - and would cost more in most other restaurants. This Ocean Basket has a cool sushi counter and there are some innovative cross-over dishes on the menu.

This delightful restaurant serves only fish. But the fish is supurb. It ranges from a small dish of Hake to larger dishes of Kingklip and other more difficult dishes to find. The small Hake is a real bargain but the bigger fish are supurb. Each meal comes with delicious bread rolls and salads can be ordered as well. Well located in the Rosebank Zone, it has an inside and an al fresco as well. Staff are very full of joy and ready to serve anything one might need. For a gret lunch outside with great fish, I highly reccomend this restaaurant for both quality and ambience.

I visited Ocean Basket with my mum and baby and I was so pleased with the service and food. The waiter, Bheki, was so friendly, it made the experience even better! I liked that the store had a feeding chair for my baby as well.

Visited the restaurant on a quite Sunday evening. The service was good and so was the food. Food delivered about 10-15 minutes after ordering. Waiter was courteous and checked on us a few times.

The complimentary rolls were very small compared to the size I am accustomed to at other Ocean Basket restaurants. The chilli also had more oil than chilli.

Also at the time of this writing (8 April 2018), Trip Advisor incorrectly has this restaurant as situated in Cape Town, Western Cape instead of Johannesburg, Gauteng, which means it cannot be found by customers who want to rate it. I had to find it via Google search. This branch might be missing many ratings because of this. I have notified TripAdvisor of the discrepancy.

A reputable chain but this store was disappointing. Service average, despite being quiet. Food mix up which was taken back (no explanation given) and brought back cold. Tiny fish portion, unappealing prawns and oily calamari. Staff standing around chatting too. Manager absent. If you’re looking for good fish, I wouldn’t recommend this branch I’m afraid
