Gone here a couple times. The service is normally wanting and slow. The sushi is decent. Though their well done Salmon is normally too dry, calamari is good, fish too. The food is nice on average the drinks are good. The ambience is very urban and modern but still family friendly.

Have to admit it was a new experience for my taste buds. Waiters were so hospitable and diligent.

Judy Kimani

The service was excellent. Right from the door one feels very welcome. The food was great - very delicious and filling. We are definitely going back.

Everything is great,from the service to good food and a relaxing environment. I'd definitely recommend anyone to try it out! My friends and I really enjoyed the prawns

As an avid lover of seafood, I had great expectations. You met every one of them during #nrw2017! I am so going back! Again and again and again....

Loved the food, loved the ambiance, loved the service, my friends and I always wanted to try out Sea food, #NRW was the perfect opportunity. It was a good experience, definately going back to ocean basket

Always wanted to go to Ocean Basket and NRW2017 was the perfect opportunity. I tried the Rock Shrimp Tempura for starters and it was such a generous serving I had to have half of it packed to have room for the main course. The Salmon was well flavoured and the mashed butternut was pure heaven! (Also a generous serving & had half of it packed too!). Tried the Affogato for desert and it was quite an interesting taste. The service was good despite it being a packed Saturday night. The cocktails were a bit tricky but we fixed that by adding some syrup into them. Despite that I must say this has been the best NRW for me and I have tried 3this year. Two thumbs up for Ocean Basket!

Francis and Patricia are the saving grace for a night fraught with disappointing food and horrible service during NRW2017. The salmon was average but the portions large and vegetables crunchy. my friend enjoyed the butternut mash and catch of the day (nile perch).

Always wanted to go to Ocean Basket to try out some things foods. They look so good and yummy. My lady and I are foodies and this was nothing of what we expected. At first I thought I was nit picking but she also felt the same way. Service was very poor. Was here for #NRW2017. We waited for food after ordering the dinner 3 course meal for about 1h,45min. They brought the main meal before the starter which we waited for for another 15mins or so after the main meal. Salmon was just okay, you'd honestly rather just go to Mama Oliech's and have that fish! Coz honestly, the one at Oval is just another sliced up fillet with unnecessary sprinkled sh**, sorry, I mean 'stuff' . The accompanying fries were also quite dry and very crispy, they did nothing for my taste buds. The setting is okay. My opinion is that this place is so so so overrated.

P.S. All the foreigners tables were being served faster than us. Why???
