It obviously provides the regular franchise fare. But service is excellent and food is well prepared. The restaurant faces the parking.

Good place for seafood and combos with chicken and meat.Visited a few times and the service is not bad. Plentiful seating with upstairs also. Nice starter with the buns and sauces before a meal.

Ocean basket provides a nice atmosphere of sea foods but I didn't like the rice as a Ghanaian I think they should check that out Apart from that I loved everything especially their bread prawn and shrinks and 🐟 I loved that

The waiter recommended the queen prawns. The prawns were mostly dry, with very little lemon butter sauce and they were not tender or juicy. A real disappointment for an expensive meal!!

The food and service was good but the restaurant lacked ambiance. There was nothing exciting about this place and although the food was good I should have purchased take away.

We had real good food en good service at the Westwood branch after we stopped going there for more than a year. We went for their birthday special and was impressed so we decided to go again and we were happy.

Ocean Basket has always been my first choice of seafood. The lemon butter sauce is just perfect to go with everything. The fish is fresh and prawns are cooked just right. Our waiter was very good and quick with providing us information on anything asked. This particular Ocean Basket is halal so great assurance for all Muslims!

I love going to Ocean Basket, it is our general date night spot as we always order the platter for two. Trying a new branch generally gives me an uncertain feeling when you are used to going to the same one. I was very surprised, the service was fantastic, I was served by a lady on training and my word... More

Ocean Basket used to be tasty and now it seems like mass produced fish just not the same good tasting fish anymore. Disappointing. Bev Moore
