Did not want to go far and did not have to. Ocean Basket was a great choice. Great sushi and baby kingklip. Well prepared and presented. Great service and location for a group of friends

This is the best Ocean Basket restaurant I have been to. The food is fresh and good, and the service good too. I always visit when I am in Sea Point and I am never disappointed.

We booked a table at Ocean Basket in Main Rd, Sea Point for Mother's Day. In our group, we were 9 adults and 3 kids. The restaurant was packed but sadly management failed to prepare for such a busy day. Firstly, our waitress had to single handedly control several tables, seating large groups. As a result, she was hardly able to attend to us. At least 5 times we had to get up to go and find her! The kitchen must have been understaffed too as we waited just over an hour for a sushi order. Everything arrived late! Mains arrived before starters! And the excuse was simply that the kitchen wasn't coping with so many patrons. Our starters arrived when we had already finished half of our main meal. But the ultimate tragedy was when we were told that the restaurant had run short of drinking glasses for the day, and as a result the men at our table had to drink their beers out of their bottles. One of my guests asked if we couldn't pop down to Spar in the main road to buy our own drinking glasses. The manager was no where to be seen. We received no apologies, no complimentary sides to compensate for the terrible service. What an absolutely badly run branch of this franchise!

We visit CapeTown nearly every year and always visit Ocean Basket in Sea Point. The service is good, the food is good and so is the wine selection. Keep it up guys
