We come to this restaurant every time I visit Durban. The service is always very good and welcoming staff members. The Sushi is the very best so fresh and delicious. The menu covers for everyone that loves fish of any sort. The best things is just how fresh the food looks and we noticed the menu is always been updated with new dishes. Keep it up and we will always visit.

Good food. Waiters need to be a little more professional. @ waiters had a fight over a pen in front of us and we had to keep calling for assistance but when he did come he was very good.

This place is lovely with a great selection of seafood. The service was exceptional by Mike and we enjoyed the meal. I could have done with a pint of beer with it but it doesn't have an alcohol licence but the milkshake was good.

Went to the restaurant for a takeaway order. Placed my order and was watching at the Sushi counter for my order to be made. As I waited I looked around and noticed that they did not adhere to the 1,5 meter seating distance seating arrangements. There were also people sitting to collect their orders with no social distancing be followed. A security guard was on duty standing in front of them. Staff members also did not practice social distancing and some did not wear their masks properly. As I waited an Indian gentleman walked in tapped my friend on the shoulder which he should not be doing in the first place and says social distancing ladies. I am assuming he did as she is white and I am Indian and we were standing together waiting for the order. We did move apart but I also asked him what about social distancing with your staff and tables not being the correct distance and the fact that the staff are not following this as well. He did not reply and walked away from me. I am well aware of the current COVID-19 pandemic and I follow all rules and regulation and I do slip up at times but for this man to tell me us to distance as we are of 2 different races and him assuming we were not together is wrong. Further more while standing there non of the staff practiced sanitising of hands before or after interaction with guests which is protocol when working. I also did not see staff members spray or disinfect tables after resetting. I love the food and their general staff but manage needs a refresher course on dealing with guests. Last time manager said that it is ok to wait for an hour for sushi.

My wife and I always had praised the Ocean Basket restaurants as the best value seafood restaurants in the Country. The high standards of the food was consistent wherever you go. Today, Sunday I ordered our favourite Fish and Chips to eat and one to go for my wife at the Marine Parade Ocean Basket. I was expecting the usual, large succulent, fresh Hake that melts in your mouth. What I received was a real disappointment. The fish was small, chewy, bony, dry and stale. After just one bite, I immediately summoned the waiter and tried to cancel the take away order. It was too late, the order was already prepared. My wife and I are both 69 years old and we know food. We have been eating out our entire life. This fish is not the Ocean Basket fish and chips that we are accustomed to by a very long margin. I whilst I have not written off the entire Ocean Basket brand as yet, I will never return to the Ocean Basket Marine Parade branch to eat. This experience has been a real disappointment. Having said that, the staff at the branch were extremely friendly and professional. My complaint is directed at the Management for the substandard of the Hake that is being sold at the restaurant. Ps: I have included a picture of the take out fish which my wife did not eat.

Whenever we come to durban, ocean basket is a must. The food and service is always great, but today was exceptional. Our waiter Xolisiwe was absolutely phenomenal. He was attentive and knew the menu very well and gave great recommendations. Will definitely be back!

I must say, this was one of my best outing experience at Ocean Basket Hillcrest, looks like they are under new management or up their customer service. All friendly around, had a chat with the branch manager, one of the most friendliest human being you'll ever meet. Have a good laugh. Thanks for making us feel welcome.

My second visit to an Ocean Basket and highly recommended. Real value for money, not at all expenses with fresh seafood, sushi and more. Tables were well spaced out in line with Covid safety.

We had dinner at this restaurant. The food was great especially the prawns. The atmosphere a little noisy but that is to be expected with large crowds. The staff friendly and helpful with any queries. But most important you can get a hot and delicious meal.

I had requested a table for 12 & was directed to a table directly below an air conditioner to which I had refused & pointed out available tables a few meters away which I had preferred, the manager on duty huffed & questioned why & when I explained I did not prefer the aircon he huffed & made facial expressions of his disgust as if he was invited & did not prefer the table we had chosen. One of my guests had ordered a prawn meal with a salad as depicted on the menu, the food was delivered without a salad, upon querying it was said the bowl of salad depicted on the menu was "just for advertising purposes." The rice that was in my dish was burnt to an extent when one chewed it felt like one had a hard pebbles in the mouth. Furthermore, comparatively to other Ocean Basket's this stores portions were much smaller. Not in the least bit impressed.

This was to only thing yesterday that my girlfiend and I ate of the same.. just a heads up
