Reviewed 2 September 2022 via mobile

Always have to visit this place when in Welkom from England. It’s probably the best Franchises in the town. Clean great atmosphere good service. Never had a bad meal in here. The only thing I would pick them up on is stop clearing the table...before everyone has finished their meals. This was disruptive to our conversation. The place wasn’t that busy so we couldn’t see what the rush was. Apart from that we loved it and will surely return. ( team has positive vibes)More

Yes, it's a chain but what a great place to get wonderful fish and seafood in Welkom! It's been almost 2 years since I reviewed OB so thought it was time to update. We took some friends there today and had the most wonderful dinner....The server was well trained and very eager to meet our needs. He was not pushy or hovering but stayed in the distanced and looked our way often to ensure we were well cared for. Of course, the food was the star of the show. Great seafood and sides expertly prepared by those guys and gals behind the scene. The OB has made some very nice improvements over the past couple of years. You will get a great meal here. Most of the time you see the owner/manager sitting at a table but not tonight. Thanks Welkom OB for the great experience. One of the best restaurants in Welkom.More

We had a very enjoyable experience, the welcoming was nice and the food, service and atmosphere was really great. The only negative part is that the trainees are a bit over eager to clean up the tables, constantly around the table to take away dishes,...some of which are still being used, we trust that you would attend to this.

What a nice experience we had! We had a family night and visited this venue, we were warmly welcomed and the service throughout the evening was great! The sushi was great, and so the rest of our meals as well! We have to admit that...the serving sizes are becoming smaller and more expensive at the same time. We are old OB customers, but unfortunately we can not afford to visit as often anymore, due to the rising prices of the meals. Thank you for yet another memorable experience, Regards,More

It has been a while since we visited the Welkom Ocean Basket. This time was a fantastic improvement over the visits several years ago! We shared the patter for 2 and it was a delightful meal with plenty of food. Service was great and a...manager stopped to check on us and sincerely cared that we had a good experience. We are not wild about calamari or mussels but the OB staff fixed them so they were wonderful. The lemon cream sauce they serve compliments seafood so well.More
